de Raadt, Michael and Watson, Richard and Toleman, Mark (2003) Introductory programming languages at Australian universities at the beginning of the twenty first century. Journal of Research and Practice in Information Technology, 35 (3). pp. 163-167. ISSN 1443-458X

Abstract

Introductory programming instructors in Australian universities are choosing the programming language they teach primarily based on a perception of industry demand. This paper examines if this perception is justifiable, and offers instructors of all programming languages an insight into the issue of academic and industry balance, now and into the future.
