So, finally, after a week of hello.pb and HelloWorld.java and a couple of weeks for Labs 1 and 2, I think the students have the hang of writing, saving, printing, testing and debugging some simple code. Also, they know their way around the Linux desktop from a programmer's perspective. We use KWrite, Kate, VIM or joe as text editors and Konsole command lines for chmod 755 or javac and java. We are proficient at using Konqueror as a file manager. I think we all have our cd, cd .., ls, ls -l, rm, mkdir, rmdir, ftp, ssh, which, pwd, whoami, last, top, sftp and fish commands down too!
