This workshop is intended for people with little or no programming experience. We will cover the basics (variables, operators, syntax, methods, class, object,etc) by writing programs to manipulate media (image, sound, movies, and text).

The goal of this workshop is to start teachers on a path that will enable them to become AP teachers in 2-5 years. The idea is that they will take this workshop and teach the Programming and Systems Management Course for a year or a few years. And when they feel ready they will take the AP training and teach the AP course.

Here are some samples of the kind of thing you will do in the workshop by writing programs in Java:
