Diving into the Shallow End

Abstract

Imagine enrolling in a class to learn a new sport, perhaps Irish Hurling. (This type of hurling involves a ball and bat.) You arrive at class on the first day excited to dive into this exotic new hands-on activity, only to be confronted by a long lecture on the theoretical foundation of hurling. Over the next fourteen weeks, the course proceeds in a similar fashion, with maybe a couple of contrived on-the-field exercises to reinforce the lectures. We don’t know about you, but we’re not so sure we’d make it through this class long enough to get to the on-the-field part (the part that got us excited about learning hurling to begin with.) This is what many students experience when they take their first computer science class.
