We knew, decades ago, that cramming for a subject was never a good way to learn something but here we are today with people still thinking they can become a "software engineer" in a few months.

I taught at Control Data Institute, for a couple of years, with about 120 students each year. Out of all of them, I am aware of only three that got jobs in the industry--through my personal contacts--where I felt confident they knew what they were doing. And this was a one or two year course.
