While agreement has not been reached on which programming language to teach Computer Science students initially, at least the complexities of the problem are understood. Less well explored is the problem facing IT students. We show that the same answers are valid for this group, although the intensity, depth and formalism needs to be less. An example is given from experience at the University of Southampton. There are still difficulties in separating the educational aspects of programming from the training aspects of coding.
