You show the point. They don't want to pay. They want someone who is gullible. And that reduces to someone who is as young and inexperienced as possible with the minimum required knowledge. The long list is for lowering the applicant self esteem and make her/him believe that she/he hit the jackpot if hired.

This guy's reasoning is an example of this:
And his remarks on complexity, C and python, show his lack of depth in the matters he teaches.
In physics simulations, cad, rendering, etc, C is too low level and lua is too slow. High complexity is inherent to those fields and you can not foretell what abstractions you need in your language. That is the reason for classes and templates. Complex numbers and arrays are simple to implement as native types, they have been native to fortran for decades. Also writing fast and parallelizable number crunching applications that work over complex and dynamic data is one of the reasons for languages like C++. The sole comparison of gnu numeric library to eigen or armadillo is enough evidence.
I thought that the third world bought their technology from the first world. Like USB devices...
You use the "fascism" word without knowing what it means.
The "fun" part is that being anti-Israel currently is less antisemitic than it is antifascist...
Please explain why Israel or Jews are fascist. As someone whose family was victimized by fascism, I find your remark offensive in its banality.
People has that bad habit of dying...
Quoting Finkler: "I don’t feel like I really grok the module system. I definitely don’t understand the class system. What the hell is a generator and how does it work the way it does? I am so lost."
It seems that the gentleman lacks some background IMHO.
And for that reason python is good for a first course, as it forces the students to indent. I am tired of lazy students that don't indent, and then complain why their code doesn't seem to follow the intended flow. It is hard to teach good habits and practices. And any help, specially from the programming languages, is welcome.

In Venezuela women are perceived as better in math and sciences. And usually they are.
Perhaps they hold the name of their first use. In France and Spain computers are called sorters, "ordinateur" and "ordenador" respectively. In those countries they'r spread started with services like banking and accounting.
San Cristobal was isolated from the internet. But the rest of the country suffers the blocking of certain sites like NTN24. But the use of TOR and other measures is spreading.
Emission and fuel consumption standards can not be met without an ECU. That makes old carburetor or continuous injection engines almost, if not completely, Illegal.
