The basic principles of the development of modern curriculum in computer science and information systems in Latvia as well as lessons learnt are discussed. The curriculum is based on two widely used documents “Computing Curricula 1991” and “IS’97”. At the same time the curriculum is strongly influenced by the local conditions of Latvian higher education system and requirements of the labour market. Some international experience in a model curriculum development has been acquired, too. New trends have emerged and new requirements have been fixed. Now, after ten years of experience there is a strong necessity to weight the pros and cons and to start revising of the curriculum.
