DRAFT Computer Science Transfer Guidelines

The ACM Committee for Computing Education in Community College (CCECC) is updating its 2009 Guidelines for Associate-Degree Transfer Curriculum in Computer Science. The update is based on ACM's CS2013 curriculum guidelines and will include contemporary cybersecurity content. An initial draft, called StrawDog, is available for public review and comment through July 31, 2016.

Over 30 community college and university computing educators contributed to the creation of StrawDog as either members of the CS-Cyber task force who met virtually in teams over the course of months or through participating in a half day workshop at SIGCSE 2016 in Memphis, TN.

Thank you for your feedback! Be sure to check back in Fall 2016 for the next draft version.
