The New Joy of Code – 01: Introduction

Finally it is here: The first of the New Joy of Code programming series.

In this series of videos I will show you how to program in Greenfoot and Stride. Later in the series, we will also get to programming in Java. But ultimately, what you will learn are the principles of object-oriented programming, which you should then be able to apply to any language.

This first episode shows you what Greenfoot is, and what Stride looks like.

Check back soon for more episodes.


The New Joy of Code – Coming Soon!

The most popular pages on this blog are the episodes of the ‘Joy Of Code’ video series, which teaches programming with Greenfoot. This video series, however, is somewhat outdated by now. So I have decided to update it and start again.

So, coming soon: The New Joy of Code. It will be similar to the old one, a series of short videos that can be used for self study, or in a classroom, but there will be differences: First, I will, of course, use a recent version of Greenfoot (Version 3.1.0 at the moment), but more importantly: I will use our new language Stride for the tutorial. We will later also transition into Java, but Stride is such a great language for beginning to program, that I really want to start with that.

With the videos – you’ll see!
