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

Customer Reviews


Everything I've watched so far I learned in my AP Computer Science class. Mehran's approach is a lot more "noob friendly" than how it's taught in High School

Awesome so far!

I am somewhat new to programming and computer science as a whole, and I have found this class to be THE most helpful out of everything I have found, that is free, on the internet and iTunes. Though I am only on lecture three, I have chosen this as my main course to evaluate whether or not I should persue a programming career out of interest and enjoyment. I also find it hilarous that I keep having to hit the snooze button on my alarm for work to finish the lecture. Thank you Stanford for allowing me to sit in... :D

Awesome Prof.

Thanks to Mahren Sahami now most of things are easier for me , does not matter where you study or where you live , you can follow these awesome lessons from anywhere. Thank you.
