This course is the largest of the introductory programming courses and is one of the largest courses at Stanford. Topics focus on the introduction to the engineering of computer applications emphasizing modern software engineering principles: object-oriented design, decomposition, encapsulation, abstraction, and testing. Programming Methodology teaches the widely-used Java programming language along with good software engineering principles. Emphasis is on good programming style and the built-in facilities of the Java language. The course is explicitly designed to appeal to humanists and social scientists as well as hard-core techies. In fact, most Programming Methodology graduates end up majoring outside of the School of Engineering

Solution to Blank Applet for CollectNewspaperKarel

For anyone with problems for not showing an applet when you hit run, check to make sure you have Stanford's Eclipse plugin installed. You can check their computer science website for how to do that (the link is given in one of their first handouts). Then when you have their plugin installed, click the running icon in Eclipse. Have fun with the course! It is one of the best intro programming courses I have seen to date.

Update it

I wish there was a running version of this course for windows 10! I loved this course when it came out on iTunes U

So good
