If you pay peanuts, expect to get monkeys.
You can't teach "programming" in a university. At least not programming with the current flavor of the month tool. Well, you can, but rest assured I'd stay away from such a "degree" as far as I possibly can.
Remember how, say, 5 or 10 years ago everything was Ruby and Ruby on Rails? ASP and COM? Today, forget it. Now it's all Android and iPad. And in 5 years that's dead as well.
You can't teach the field of the year tool at a school that's supposed to give you an education for life. Another reason why most people go into BA rather than engineering, you don't really need to learn a new set of business rules every other year, you can sell the same bull for seemingly ever.
Very true indeed.
But what I noticed is that degrees mean jack when it comes to basic things like this. I've had people with degrees in CS and whatnot who were great in theory. But when it came to coating that theory in code, most suddenly drew a blank.
Likewise, when I was working at a company that deals with malware analysis, we were looking for programmers with at least a bit of an ASM background. What we got were mostly people with a lot of experience in, say, VB and JS. Eventually I designed a simple question with a bit of ASM code, whoever could tell me what this does and what they'd expect from it, where it could probably be in a code and what to watch out in debugging can apply. The rest need not.
The snippet was simply
Believe it or not, the applications dropped sharply to the point where we could invite every single person who solved it correctly without overtaxing ourselves...
The reason is simply that it pays better to move into BA. Seriously, take a look at your earning opportunities with a STEM degree, then compare to what a BA can make. And finally compare the workload.
Even I had to move away from my beloved engineering and into management because it was just effin' impossible to get ahead otherwise. I now make a lot more money with a lot less work on my shoulders. If I had a BA degree instead of a STEM one, maybe I would've gotten here 10 years ago.
Of course. The point was, assuming that abuse did have some effect on sexuality, shouldn't it turn someone away from the sex that abused one?
Personally I don't think that sexual preference is a choice. But the argument of "abuse makes you gay" fails even if one assumed THAT abuse had some sort of influence on sexual preference.
Either describes very well and in a very graphic way how I felt about it.
Just watch out for new YouTube videos that will create heaps of amusement. For the people watching, at least.
And what good did it do? Seriously, tell me, what good did it do? Having a different class at max tells you jack about the new class you just picked up.
I predict a LOT of dds-gone-tank (since, hey, tanks get front row seats in GF, I'll be a tank now!) who think aggro management is the idiot boss they have to deal with at work.
Just go with the flow control, roll with the crunches, and, when you get a prompt, type like hell.
