Ask Slashdot: "Real" Computer Scientists vs. Modern Curriculum?

c++ Speaking from the interviewer side (637 comments)

The primary thing I notice about fresh Java school grads is that there's nothing in their resume that tells me they can tackle hard problems. No pointers. No lambda functions. No backtracking. No first-class continuations. All the stuff that used to weed out people in CS programs is gone; that means I have to do the weeding. At least Javascript has brought some of that back.

c++ Re:But Node.JS IS WEBSCALE (400 comments)

The event/callback/state machine model is a pain to program in, but at least you don't have race conditions on shared data.

Tell this to the patients that were killed by the Therac-25. It had a race condition even though it was an event-based system that didn't use true threads.

Speed Test 2: Comparing C++ Compilers On WIndows

c++ Re:Representative benchmarks? (132 comments)

In other words, I have no reason to assign any meaning to these numbers.

Given the reaction to the previous article I don't know what this guy is even trying to do.

And why 6084? What is so special about that number?

6084 / 2 % 100 == 42

That is meaning enough.
