Abstract—Programming ability is one of the most important
abilities for the undergraduates majoring in computer science.
Taking Yunnan University as an example, the necessity and
importance of improving the ability of programming is
analyzed in this paper. The exploration and practice of
improving students' ability of programming are discussed from
four aspects: arrangement and reform of programming
curriculums, construction of online programming practice
innovation platform, certification of programming ability and
organization of programming competitions. These reforms have
achieved good results in recent years, which can provide
reference for the practical teaching reform of computer
specialty in relevant universities.
Index Terms—Curriculum reform, certified software professional, programming competition, Gitlib.
