Discussion on: Do they teach "pointers" in bootcamp? Should they?

I think that knowing what a pointer is it is quite important, even if you use a language (like JavaScript, Ruby or Python) that does not show them explicitly to you. It is important to know what happens "under the hood." Keep also in mind that you never know and maybe later you'll need to work with a language that uses pointers explicitly.
