Luet oppimateriaalin englanninkielistä versiota. Mainitsit kuitenkin taustakyselyssä
osaavasi suomea. Siksi suosittelemme, että käytät suomenkielistä versiota, joka on
testatumpi ja hieman laajempi ja muutenkin mukava.
Suomenkielinen materiaali kyllä esittelee englanninkielisetkin termit. Myös
suomenkielisessä materiaalissa käytetään ohjelmaprojektien koodissa englanninkielisiä
nimiä kurssin alkupään johdantoesimerkkejä lukuunottamatta.

This course, Programming 1, is not a lecture course. Listening to lectures is not the
way you’re going to learn to program.
All you need to do to get started is go to Chapter 1.1 of the course ebook and start
studying. The ebook explains how the course works; it will also tell you which programming
tools to install and guide you as you start practicing.
Please come to the frequent lab sessions. There, you can get
help on the assignments from the course staff. You can also discuss the programming
assignments and other topics on our online forums (see Chapter 1.1).
All that being said, the Fall 2018 incarnation of Programming 1 does have three lectures.
The first two are in Finnish only, and none of the three is mandatory or particularly
important. Please do not worry: you won’t miss out on anything important even if
you don’t know Finnish. The two lectures at the start of the course are largely for
orientation; everything that’s said there is also covered in detail by the ebook, in
The third “lecture” at the end of the course, which will be partially in English and
partially in Finnish, is also not really about covering course content. See below for
Thousands of students have given feedback that has contributed to this ebook’s design.
Weeks 1 to 13 of the ebook, including the assignments and weekly bulletins, have been
written in Finnish and translated into English by Juha Sorva.
Weeks 14 to 20 are by Otto Seppälä. That part of the ebook isn’t available during the
fall term, but we’ll publish it when it’s time.
The appendices (glossary, Scala reference,
FAQ, etc.) are by Juha Sorva unless otherwise specified on the page.
The automatic assessment of the assignments has been programmed by Riku Autio, Jaakko
Kantojärvi, Teemu Lehtinen, Timi Seppälä, Teemu Sirkiä, and Aleksi Vartiainen.
The illustrations at the top of each chapter, and the similar drawings elsewhere in the
ebook, are the work of Christina Lassheikki.
The animations that detail the execution Scala programs have been designed by Juha Sorva and
Teemu Sirkiä. Teemu Sirkiä and Riku Autio have done the technical implementation, relying on
Teemu’s Jsvee and Kelmu
The other diagrams and interactive presentations in the ebook are by Juha Sorva.
The O1Library software
has been developed by Aleksi Lukkarinen and Juha Sorva. Several of its key components
are built upon Aleksi’s SMCL
The pedagogy of using tools from O1Library (such as Pic) for simple graphical programming
is inspired by the textbooks How to Design Programs by Flatt, Felleisen, Findler, and
Krishnamurthi and Picturing Programs by Stephen Bloch.
The course platform A+ has been created by
Aalto’s LeTech research group and is largely
developed by students. The current lead developer is Jaakko Kantojärvi; many other
students of computer science and information networks are also active on the project.
