  14. Programming curriculum for senior students (over 50 years)

    Answers: 6.

    Suggestion: This situation is not much differnt from some undergrad choosig to switch from a fine arts major to a CS major; using the computer is understood, understanding the computer, or programming it is a whole different story

Using Processing as an entry point in an Introductory Course: 4 Answers OP is gathering data to develop a new curriculum. The needed tag is . Not entirely sure that belongs either, it's one possibility for the new courses, but not the only. I think the Processing component of the question is part of an X-Y issue. Answers should be driven by how to evaluate any language for the classroom and course objectives, not just one. Otherwise we end up with the same OP asking the same question with a different language until he finds the one that fits. With generic evaluation guidelines, the answer allows OP to evaluate Processing now, and other languages later, until one does meet his needs.

As of this posting there are 34 questions on list. Having read them, and considered what can be done with them, I've compiled my thoughts for all of them. The main premise being that will die, and therefore, be removed from all of them. I've also identified the few, in my view, that might fit in the proposed tag. They are listed in oldest-first order, in view of the proposal to process them that way. A few also are covered by other tag edit proposals, and are so noted.

Let the games begin.
