Title: The Cognitive Science of Programming:  An Update

Abstract:  We provide an update on our cognitive-science-of-programming research program.  After providing context by briefly reviewing our prior results, we (1) explain how the mathematics of computational learning theory formalizes the problem-solving challenge of programming, and (2) describe the two kinds of programming problems we will soon be running subjects on once again.  The second kind are similar to ones solved by high-performing student programmers in competition.
