Our thesis is that CS education like introductory CS courses should shift to Web 2.0 (browsers, rich internet apps, web architecture, ..)

So Principles of Programming course is an attempt to teach/develop course ware that might be looked at as an adaptation to today’s student contexts.

The course will provide Firefox and add-ons for "students". A server for the class (with svn, course material, trac - for example). And we shall walk through the significant material so people build something that is browser based. Even if it is a small spread sheet cell that uses MVC pattern, using first principles.
