Abstract

Several non-Computer Science disciplines may require students to take computer programming
courses. Examples include Information Systems, Educational Technology, Engineering, and Business
Management. These curricula typically are designed to provide the enrollees with exposure to the
application of computer programming, development of problem-solving skills, and possibly the
background in a language that can be used for further study in research, analysis, or data structure
design. Some non-Computer Science majors fear, and/or do poorly in programming. Other students
find programming interesting and non-threatening. For all students there is a possibility that their
attitudes toward computer programming will change during and as a result of their introductory
course(s) in the subject. Two languages used to teach object-oriented programming are Java and C++.
This poster demonstration summaries self-expressed attitudes toward computer programming of a
small group of students who have studied both Java and C++.
