This is a beginner's introduction to programming which uses Oberon as the programming language. Oberon is chosen because it is the natural descendant of the teaching languages Pascal and Modula and because it is designed to encourage good object-oriented practices. Oberon provides program safety, modularity, readability, maintainability, efficiency, and support for programming-in-the-large. The author begins with introducing procedures - the basic building blocks of Oberon programs - before introducing types and then type- bound procedures. Along the way, students will build increasingly complex modules of Oberon code and develop a basic understanding of the advantages of object-oriented programming. As a result students coming to programming for the first time will appreciate this hands-on textbook. Readers familiar with programming but new to Oberon will find this a well-paced guide to the language which will have them programming interesting software quickly.
