Elect somebody else.
I'm not saying everyone needs to be a math wiz but I was replying to a post that implied that nobody does. At minimum you need to understand binary arithmetic or you will be pretty limited in what you can accomplish. Octal and hexadecimal come in real handy at times too.
Anyway, Apple has 36% of the market while selling only a few models.
I think they'll survive for awhile.
Nobody in real life uses higher math in front-end web development. They might use multiplication and division to do layouts. It's debatable whether anyone actually uses algorithms. Data structures would be handy, but it's also arguable whether web developers actually understand them or not - especially if you talk to any DBA about how website A uses the RDBMS.
Depends on what the web front-end is for. If you work for an engineering firm or one that does research and/or deals with statistics, solid math skills will definitely open some doors.
I realize that 2 years doesn't give you the same amount of time to do that, but to the extent that you can, your students will benefit.
I agree that Node.js is worth spending significant time on given that it's more than likely going to see greater and greater use, but I guess I'm not sure I'd focus on that at the expense of all the others. Even in two years, a lot of companies will be using something else.
Computer game makers now have brought on people from the gaming industry (as in gambling) to get better insight on how to hook people. And casinos will target people who've historically spent wads of cash with free rooms, meals, shows, and other perks to get them to come back. They do this knowing in many cases that those people they're targeting have a serious gambling problem.
There are serious ethical issues involved here.
Use "SuperDuper" or Time Machine to do a complete backup first then after installing Mavericks use Migration Assistant to get your apps, files, and settings restored.
I'm not talking about being afraid of working with women. My ideal workplace would have members of both sexes.
I've had plenty of female coworkers and a few women supervisors for that matter. My first real job after college was in a team that was entirely composed of women (aside from myself), but there were other men around. For the most part I really enjoyed working in that group and they seemed to enjoy their token male but at the same time I knew that position was temporary and wasn't a situation that was going to last throughout my career.
I'll also be honest. If I was a college student trying to decide amongst careers and one of the options was a field that was made up of 90% women, it would be a factor in my decision. Would it stop me if it was something I really wanted to do? Probably not. Then again I also think it can be easier to be the lone guy in a group of women than the other way around.
Assuming you're a male, wouldn't you perhaps think twice about a career choice where you might be the only male out of 10 people in your group and you were one of only a few men in any class you took or conference you attended?
Anyway, there were plenty of women in my college CS classes, and most of them got jobs very quickly. But far more of them left the field than men. It was not at all unusual for me work with women programmers in the late 80's to the mid 90's. But it was very rare for me to work with one after that, even though I was in my 30's and still in my prime as far as software development goes. What happened to them?
