That's sad. Assembler was a required course for my CS degree. If you wanted to mix in any significant computer engineering you took the optional second course that covered Motorola assembler as well.
Same for me. Motorola 6800 and 6809 assembler for the low level and Pascal for the data structures courses. Once we had a strong grounding in both, they let us loose on C. It was a great combination.
[G]et somebody that really knows this stuff
And if he's totally ignorant, how does he know somebody "really knows this stuff"?
He has his developers participate in the recruitment process. If the person he hires is good, the developers will know and the accountant will know as the new hire will be able to clearly communicate with both during the interview.
I might actually vote for him because of this policy. Never thought I would say that.
Might be worth checking his track record on breaking promises and his wage policies for existing employees before making any rash decisions.
As would my 2010 Hyundai. It has a key and the typical remote.
My 2006 Jeep Wrangler has a key and no remote.
I don't read reddit, so I'm not always in the loop about whatever this hour's controversy is. As such, I need to ask, what is all of this even about? Can anyone explain this to me? Who is this person? Why is there so much negativity here?
I've looked through the discussion here, and all I'm seeing are an unusually high number of comments modded down to -1, a lot of talk about transsexuals, and pretty much nothing relevant to science, computing, math, or good stuff like that.
Can anyone, anyone at all, explain what the hell is going on here, and what the hell this is all about?
Yes. Google can - it's what all the kids on the internet use now. Saves posting comments pretending you haven't heard of person/band/website/game/TVshow to try and desperately gain some level of street cred.
The Amiga did it better and earlier.
And using less RAM. I was always impressed by my Amiga's ability to multitask compared to the Windows machine I had at work.
met the original specifications
The key word here being "original" when discussing waterfall vs iterative development. Agile is not meant to deliver the original specification; it's meant to allow developers to adapt to a changing specification.
Unfortunately, it often requires the client to accept a product that was different from their original specification thanks to the dropping of features along the way.
The value of a program is proportional to the weight of its output.
