To ensure that the concepts involved in the development of complex software systems are well grounded and applicable by neophytes, we have employed object technology itself to realise our pedagogy, investing over 50 person years of academic effort. The paper describes the agenda for the course, its object-oriented pedagogy and our strategy for delivering it....
