Abstract

Traditional Computer Science education introduces computer programming very early in the curriculum. While appropriate, this does create difficulties given that related topics are not introduced until much later. While it is important to familiarize students with computer programming concepts as early as possible, it is equally important to introduce them to related concepts such as persistent storage, API integration, user experience implementation and user design as early as possible at a high level. Traditionally, these concepts are not introduced until far later in the curriculum creating disconnect in a student’s education. This disconnect is most noticeable upon graduation when many students are unfamiliar with common integrations used in industry. The Mendix platform allows these concepts to be introduced early on at an applied level, allowing students to benefit from their function prior to being introduced to their underlying theory.
