re: Do students get to work with existing codebases? VIEW POST


When I've taken part of industry discussions with local schools about their co-op programmes the feedback on what they were missing was universally:

  1. Automated tests
  2. Version control
  3. Small changes to a large system

In our co-ops I've seen improvement on the first two - we don't have to train people on the basics of git anymore and the basics of unit tests are covered these days.

It's too bad that this is still a common gap in most people's education.
