Not that I need to defend myself to you... but it was to show the fact that everyone is aware of how crappy Bubble Sort is. If you don't like my post, you can leave. I don't want negative people on my blogs.

I hope you get help to fix whatever is so bad in your life that you felt it necessary to comment rudely on someone's blog post.

Considering the post's topic is "bubble sort isn't good" and the reference was "even a President who didn't study CS knows bubble sort is good" it sounds perfectly on-topic to me. Using anecdotes to illustrate and highlight ones' points are a basic part of writing good articles, which I should know since I studied journalism for four years.

Dude, no one is taking CS advice from Obama. It was a joke. Don't find it funny? Move on. No need to rain on others' parades.

JFC? Grow up. She stayed on-topic the entire time. Keep rude comments like this one to yourself.

Thanks for the great blog post, Emma!

First: what Emma said.

Second: I don't think one has to be a coder/dev to understand basic computer science as bubble sort (and trust me, that's pretty basic, since I learned it in school when I was 16), nor I think one can't have passion for a specific matter despite working on completely different things.
I also think that mr. Obama totally could have some basic self tought knowledge of CS, giving the fact that he always pushed for CS education for everyone, not only for those who see themselves as the next Steve Jobs.
It is also completely possible that he attended at some CS 101 in his years at Columbia University, that appears to be one of the best in terms of CS teaching, and I'm pretty sure that Bubble Sort was already a thing in the 80s.
I believe that one can have passion about one topic despite working on total different subjects: one can be a dev by day and quilt sewer by night, or be an anatomopathologist that spends all his friday nights in karaoke bars just because likes to sing. Or be the POTUS and still have read one or two books about computer science, why not?

Last but not least: I wouldn't call Emma's reference "off topic", being one and a half line of text in an article that doesn't like to be a medium length tweet...

One last piece of granny advice: if you can't say it nicely, don't say it at all.

Cheers

You snowflakes sure read a LOT in to what he asked. "WHAT DOES OBAMA HAVE TO DO WITH IT?" which is NOTHING. You guys got all bent out of shape, creatively bashing him and claiming he has something wrong with his life...wow. No wonder young people (especially girls) are scared off of coding. There's less trash talk in Call of Duty in an under-15 match.
