I have thought it strange that we teach students to write programs before we teach them to read them.

A short time ago I read about some research about this. It stated that the problem wasis finding good programming works that wereis of a standard similar to the standard of great literary works. They may exist, but no one has compiled a collection.

They would have to be at least:

  • Free Software / Open Source.
  • Well written.
  • “Reading age” appropriate. (That is programming reading age)
 

I will try to remember where I read it, and report back.

Could be one of these: - Mind-storms — Seymour Papert (page < 116 (I am up to page 116) ) - Hacking The Curriculum — Ian Living Stone & Shahneila Saeed (page <= 72) - Hello Word magazine issue 3 - Somewhere else.

Sorry I can't find it. It is most likely in the 1st, then the 2nd etc. If I find it then I will update.
