Proposing ooRexx and BSF4ooRexx for Teaching Programming and Fundamental Programming Concepts

Activity: Talk or presentationScience to science


After 30 years of experimenting teaching programming for interested information systems and business administration students with different programming languages it has been experienced that using the combination of ooRexx and BSF4ooRexx (an ooRexx-Java bridge) allows the students to learn and apply the most important concepts in a teaching load of eight European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System credits. The article briefly introduces ooRexx and BSF4ooRexx with examples that demonstrate the pseudo-code characteristics and power that this combination allows for. The developed teaching concepts with this infrastructure allows the students to become able to program Microsoft Office and Apache OpenOffice after only two months and exploit any Java class library and any Java application application programming interfaces after another two months.
