It is not even remotely similar to reading, writing and basic math. Most people do not need coding, will never be any good at it and trying to tech it to them is a complete waste of time.
I absolutely disagree. Programing (by which I mean building something that does stuff, rather than doing it the best possible way) is not about math, it's about logic. It's about deciding goals, making a plan, testing one's progress, and making milestones. This sort of thinking is essential in nearly every field, from baking to investing, from education to career planning.
Just like it's a Good Idea to check the back seat before you get into your car, it's a good idea to check the back before before you get out.
Oh, and maybe turn off the goddamned phone once in a while so you're less distracted.
At worst they install whatever the hell they want while they are providing remote "support".
Seriously, who the hell do these Sun Microsystems people think they are, anyway.
That's what it wants you to think.
They both went right back to testing, however
Sound like they failed.
I guess there's someone new over there willing to fuck Sergey.
The staff of Microsoft lost a lot of time doing that elaborate funeral for the iPhone years back.
Exactly. Full marks to TemporalBeing.
I have an artificial device implanted in my abdomen that performs the function of my failed kidneys. It's powered by my own metabolic processes and has the potential to work maintenance free for decades. It's also totally open source.
The same way that things went from being "neat" or "cool" became "awesome," and how a few years back all "fails" became "epic fails." Nowadays one can't be a "good" coder, or an "excellent" coder. One must be a "rock star." People who aren't rock stars aren't merely "below the median," they are "fucking retards."
My city has been trying to get some dubious development lately (casinos and the Olympics). The politicians and developers, seeking to get voter approval for revised laws, tax breaks, and other asshattery, love to throw around terms like "world class." I saw an ad on the subway that used the phrase three times. It's like listening to Donald Trump imitators throw around superlatives "the classiest, most gold-plated, marble-encrusted codpiece you ever saw."
That's nerd cred right there. Drop the mic and walk.
That's not true. I use adblock because I just want the content I came for and not a bunch of other stuff taking up my screen. If it weren't for adblock's advanced settings, sites like LinkedIn would be unusable.
Yes, that would be very noble.
