Australian Internet software company Bullant has forged a partnership with Sydney University in which an expected 200 students will complete a 14 week course in the Bullant programming language as a part of their computer science degree.
Third-year undergraduate students will be offered the course from July this year, in a move that will provide Bullant with the opportunity to educate the next generation of software developers about its programming language. Bullant co-founder Ray Huetter will be responsible for much of the curriculum and will also be involved in the tutorials and hands-on teaching during the course.
"Ray has always had the belief that the younger the students are, the more creative the results can be," said Bullant managing director Paul Burrows. "We are exploring a number of opportunities to educate people about our technology, we'll see how we go with this project first."
Burrows said students would find the course useful because it offers them a practical example of working with an object-orientated code language. "The skills and disciplines the students will learn from the Bullant example can then be useful for all object-orientated languages," he said.
