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

Solution to Blank Applet for CollectNewspaperKarel

For anyone with problems for CollectNewspaperKarel.java not showing an applet when you hit run, check to make sure you have Stanford's Eclipse plugin installed. You can check their computer science website for how to do that (the link is given in one of their first handouts). Then when you have their plugin installed, click the running icon in Eclipse. Have fun with the course! It is one of the best intro programming courses I have seen to date.

Problems with running in Java?

This course is awesome! the instructor was born to teach this class and everything about it is great. Having one hiccup though with getting the programs to run in java. For example when I open CollectNewspaperKarel, a new window opens but it stays blank. no world or run program buttons, just a blank grey box. IS anyone else having this problem or does anyone know how i might solve it? Thanks!
