This course is the largest of the introductory programming courses and is one of the largest courses at Stanford. Topics focus on the introduction to the engineering of computer applications emphasizing modern software engineering principles: object-oriented design, decomposition, encapsulation, abstraction, and testing.

Programming Methodology teaches the widely-used Java programming language along with good software engineering principles. Emphasis is on good programming style and the built-in facilities of the Java language. The course is explicitly designed to appeal to humanists and social scientists as well as hard-core techies. In fact, most Programming Methodology graduates end up majoring outside of the School of Engineering

Excellent

I love Mehran's style - he's a very gifted teacher. Thank you to Stanford for making this free.

p.s.
More of his classes in HD would be great :D

MrWhyte111 ,

REALLY!?

Is this honestly the way the 'Great stanford' teaches people?

I would of assumed the students in the class would of been alot smarter. I mean, do they need to be spoonfed the basics at such a slow rate and then have sweets thrown at them like monkeys to congratulate them on paying attention!

Great… but

I really love the style and the carisma of Mehran, but the SD resolution is just not enough. I'm just watching this for fun, but someone who would try to learn new things with this course would be in trouble. Most of the code is unreadable. So a HD version would be nice if it's possible.
