How Much Money do Programmers Really Make?

aberant Re:Not That Easy (909 comments)

My biggest problem with DeVry is that i think i've taught my professors more then what i've learned. In one class, ALL linux related questions were directed to me (this was over the couse of a couple weeks, not anecdotally in one class), and did i get any extra credit? NO... In another class, after my professor bragged and bragged how he was leading a project written in java for the city, he was AMAZED to learn about SQL injection. In my second OO class, most people were still struggling with understanding what a variable and a for loop was. This was AFTER they had taken 15 credit hours of other prerequisite programming classes.

I could go on and on, but my point is that i find DeVry's purpose is only to churn out middle management tools.
