View English part at the end of this article

Voici le contenu d'un message expédié à un ami. J'ai pensé le publier ici parce qu'il est primordial pour quiconque de prendre connaissance de ces faits avant de s'aventurer dans la suggestion de toute solution face à la crise de l'énergie.

Si vous prenez le temps d'assimiler cette réalité, vous ne verrez assurément plus les choses du même oeil par la suite. Les faits sont tellement impressionnants que vous n'en croirez pas vos yeux à la lecture de l'article. Vous réaliserez que plusieurs concepts erronés (ou mythes) ne tiennent tout simplement pas la route suite à la lecture de cet article.

Computer Science Education: Where Are the Software Engineers of Tomorrow? Imprimer
Écrit par Alain Côté   

"Two professors emeritus of computer science at New York University who have penned an article titled Computer Science Education: Where Are the Software Engineers of Tomorrow? in which they berate their university, and others, for not teaching solid languages like C, C++, Lisp, and ADA. The submitter wonders whether any CS students or professors would care to respond. Quoting the article:"

"The resulting set of skills [from today's educational practices] is insufficient for today's software industry (in particular for safety and security purposes) and, unfortunately, matches well what the outsourcing industry can offer. We are training easily replaceable professionals... Java programming courses did not prepare our students for the first course in systems, much less for more advanced ones. Students found it hard to write programs that did not have a graphic interface, had no feeling for the relationship between the source program and what the hardware would actually do, and (most damaging) did not understand the semantics of pointers at all, which made the use of C in systems programming very challenging."
