Abstract

In [1] we previously described an innovative approach to teaching programming fundamentals to undergraduate students in a course called Programming Studio. This required program is designed to be given shortly after CS2. We teach topics such as high quality code design, proper problem de-composition and methods of code documentation, as well as practical subjects such as correct usage of various types of version control and a variety of programming languages that are not usually introduced in other CS courses. Here we build on what was previously written with the new methods of assessment, types of assignments, and the lessons learned from expanding the course from less than 75 students to nearly 150 students.
