    A new online Introduction to Programming course in our community college
    will be taken by those who choose career paths in areas such as Computer
    Support Specialist, Network Specialists, DataBase Developer, Network
    Administrators, and Software Developers. Originally we had a course in
    VB.Net but felt that the 3 hour course was too narrow and overly detailed
    for these majors. Instead, we are considering a two language course that
    covers basic businessapplications. Languages under consideration are Java,
    VB.Net, and VC#.Net.

    Given the Visual Studio IDE and the heavy use of these languages in our
    market, we tend to favor using C# and VB in parallel for the first third of
    the course in which students write the same program in each language. After
    that, the student would continue in the single language of his/her choice.

    Your constructive comments and opinions (pro and con) are invited.
