re: Things All Developers Should Learn In College VIEW POST


A problem that I see a lot when giving talks in Asian universities is teachers making their students learn languages off by heart.

For instance knowing all the functions on the String object and the parameters they can take. In my opinion this kind of teaching brings a fundamental flaw to those students. They are never taught to do any type of problem solving. They do not get any programming tests most of the time but only off by heart tests about the languages.

This brings a serious lack of understanding on how to code and when interviewing some new candidates for our company, many couldn't solve simple programming dilemmas.

I think you should remember to always try to think outside of the box and to understand basic concepts such as loop, comparisons and more.
