Well no you don't have the right in all cases! I am sure the employee at Microsoft signed an agreement that he would follow certain guidelines, so no he did not have the right to do this on behalf of Microsoft. Linus also has the right to accept, correct, or reject code that he does not like in his tree. You have the right to be a jackass (at least in the US) but we don't have to give you a platform.
The truth is that no one knows how you are going to stay employable!
We have no idea about the challenges you are facing now and will face in the future. We don't even know what lies before us in the future. The best chance you have is to make sure your lifestyle is sustainable. Make sure you get out of debt (if any) and are physically and mentally healthy. Be kind and considerate to others (even if they do no deserve it). Reduce your attachments to material things. Things do not make you happy anyway. If you are not happy with the work you are doing now, find something that interests you and gives your life purpose (life is too short).
That is so great! Now can we have real news?
This article has a racist subtext. I have also seen extremely unskilled programmers from the US at the > $100/hr level. There are countless federal projects that fail with cost overruns for any number of reasons. Choosing US programmers does not guarantee success. I think ultimately companies need to realize that software development is very hard and you just can't randomly hire/contract programmers and expect success. Top programmers are hard to find and expensive no matter what country look at.
Mobile phones are just another platform to experience gaming. Mobile platforms are becoming more like gaming consoles. With technologies like wireless display (WiDi), etc you may be able to run a virtual xbox 360 straight from a mobile device on to the display of your choice. Good times!
Let me guess you are white. I dare you to ask any black person if white privilege does not exist. I bet you will have a tough time finding one. But in your mind they are all liars or lazy. I hate the "black people are just lazy" narrative. It's a really tired old lie you people keep telling yourselves.
At last count it was 111.
Dude turn off the filter and grep for the n-word on this forum. It will open your eyes!
How about you observe the amount of people use the n-word on this forum. Then tell me that the tech world is open. It is a sad joke.
Please stop the race-bait articles Slashdot. I can't take it anymore. You people should be ashamed of yourselves. You know who you are. >:-(
It seems you have an agenda against Black people and fear lawsuits, but what does giving IQ tests to janitors have to do with the STEM drop out rate?
You did not read that article correctly. Duke Power initially used segregation to weed out Black job applicants. When the Civil Rights Act prevented segregation they instituted IQ tests to weed out Black applicants who did not have the same education opportunities at the time. The IQ tests did not have anything to do with the job. The Civil Rights Act does not ban IQ tests.
Another politician is not going save us. To think otherwise would be intellectually dishonest.
I see a lot of well educated engineers coming into the field that have terrible problem solving skills. I am sure they have great grades but they can't solve their way out of a card board box. I am not exactly sure this weak student elimination thing is working out very well.
I agree with the idea that sticking everyone into a four year program is counter productive. Problem is the longer the program the more expensive the cost is to the student.
