On a New Road

The BlueJ folks have been busy!Wednesday June 2, 2010
I've been a huge fan of BlueJ for years. It's an organization, teaching methodology, curriculum, text book and methodology for teaching programming to folks who have never programmed before. BlueJ has been around for quite a while, and has been hugely successful. They've just put out a major new release, 3.0 of the IDE that's got a pile of great enhancements. Coupled with the fourth edition of the textbook Objects First With Java: A Practical Introduction Using BlueJ (4th Edition), BlueJ is a great way to teach. It's been effective with students from about 7th grade through college.

For extra fun, the NetBeans folks have been busy too: they're up to 6.9 RC2. The FX editor is getting interesting!
