Another Fine Rant on Computer Science

POSTED Mon Jan.03.2005 by Dave Seah UNDER Computers TAGGED

In case you missed it, Joel Spolsky has written another interesting article with advice for computer science students. An excerpt (emphasis added by me):

Learn C before graduating

[...] if you can’t explain why while (*s++ = *t++); copies a string, or if that isn’t the most natural thing in the world to you, well, you’re programming based on superstition, as far as I’m concerned: a medical doctor who doesn’t know basic anatomy, passing out prescriptions based on what the pharma sales babe said would work.

Hee hee. Joel rocks! :-)
