Java is one of the most relevant languages and among the most powerful software platforms that exist today. Using Java for primary programming education is challenging, however, due to the complexity of the language and existing IDEs. Instead of teaching “toy” languages at the beginning, we need the right interactive tools for teaching Java. This BoF session discusses the present and the future of the upcoming JGrounds app and related projects such as VRL-Studio. The JGrounds app features interesting story-based introductions to various topics. Everybody is welcome to participate! We need coders, artists and teachers. We need you!
Are you interested? You are invited to attend my session about the JGround app at JavaOne: BOF5047
