Java

+ - Anti-Java prof. says Java Grads "won't get job->

Submitted by

MidVicious writes "NYU Professor Robert Dewar summarizes that new college students' reliance on Java, the language listed number one on TIOBE Software's list of popular programming languages, aren't developing the deep programming skills necessary to make them invaluable.
In the article, Dewar states, "If all we do is train students to be able to do simple Web programming in Java, they won't get jobs, since those are the jobs that can be easily outsourced. What we need are software engineers who understand how to build complex systems." Certainly not the first Java-bitter NYU professor, but possibly the most outspoken."
