The older developers worked in a procedural and functional world. A text-based world.
When I taught programming for networking and for electrical Engineering in the 2010s, I taught how to think like a programmer, and basic processes. We weren't teaching OOP. I was supposed to teach from a beginner Python book for networking students and beginning C for IC programming for the engineering students. I also added in JavaScript showing the same procedures on web pages. Most of the students liked the web-page exercises better.
I did all my programming in person and real time, typos and all, so the students could see that making errors that sunk your program was not the end of the world.
