The problem with JavaSchools according to Joel

Java is too easy to be the primary language taught in university computer science, according to Joel. I agree. Good thing I caught the last wave of C++ courses at my school, so I at least learned pointers.

update: Chad weighs in on it, asking where is the room for non-engineers:

What worries me is that this will weed out the artists and the craftspeople, leaving us with nothing but a bunch of engineers. Sometimes you need an engineer. Sometimes you need an artist.

Now I just need to work through those MIT lectures… (or read the book).
