Abstract:Education of software development is a field of significant interest, because there is a substantial shortage of software developers both in the Netherlands and outside. The number of students enrolling into programming studies in the Netherlands is also increasing. Many educational systems exist to aid educators with teaching programming courses. These systems are built with the specific goal of aiding teaching, but do little to prepare students for tools used in professional environments. This research will trial a combination of tools used in professional environments and show if and how these can fulfil the need of educators when teaching programming. First, the primary needs of educators of programming courses is determined. Next, the landscape of professional tools is explored, and a toolchain is determined. Then, the toolchain will be compared against the learning goals that need to be met for teaching software development. Finally, a trial with educators will be conducted with the toolchain, of which the resulting experiences and insights are reported.
