Publisher: Course Technology 2006
Number of pages: 864
This book is an innovative approach to teaching and learning introductory object-oriented programming. Students are introduced to object-oriented concepts with simulated robots, a hands-on approach that is engaging and fun for both students and instructors. Robots are used to lay a solid object-oriented foundation upon which students build an in-depth understanding of programming concepts using a wide range of non-robotic examples.

In this book, we start off assuming that you know no programming language at all. We teach you Java one concept at a time and taking things real slow and easy. We believe that the best way to learn is to try and absorb just one concept at a time.

This book is less about Java, and it is only partly about programming. It is about a way of thinking. Computer scientists have an approach to problem-solving, and a way of crafting solutions, that is unique, versatile and powerful.

Introduction to computer programming intended for students in standard CS1 courses with no prior programming experience. It is the first textbook to rethink the traditional curriculum in light of the current interaction-based computer revolution.
