CentOS Linux Version 7 Released On x86_64

campingman777 Re:Minimal ISO? (125 comments)

Per: http://lists.centos.org/piperm...

"= Given the popularity of the minimal install ISO in CentOS-6, we are
going to try and deliver a minimal install ISO for CentOS-7 as well.
One key challenge here is that the installer image has grown to nearly
360MB, and getting enough content into a CD size image is proving hard."

I had to be concise as I ran out of words due to the /. title limitation. I can tell that you understood what my meaning was, so at least it conveyed information, and that's something! :-P

NYC To Release Teacher Evaluation Data Over Union Protests

campingman777 Re:Won't someone think of the children? (557 comments)

I work for a school district and I only partially agree with your sentiment. 1.) Union members should self-police their own ranks as a first line of defense. 2.) The bigger problem are administrators that don't document poor performers. Administration should be the ones to say to the poor performer: "During your evaluation period you were not good. Here is how we can help you be better. If you can't show improvement in x number of weeks, we will start the termination process." Documenting is the key, and I have NEVER seen it done in 16 years.

campingman777 (1432017) writes "I am being asked by students to develop an associates of applied science in modern web development at my community college. I proposed the curriculum to some other web forums and they were absolutely against it. Their argument was that students would not learn enough higher math, algorithms, and data structures to be viable employees when their industry changes every five years. As part of our mission is to turn out employees immediately ready for the work force, is teaching knowledge-based careers as a vocation appropriate?"

Quality-oriented teaching of programming

campingman777 campingman777 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

campingman777 (1432017) writes "Changing the way programming logic is taught may help more folks break into the field. This novel approach would help learners survive because the quantity as well as quality of work accepted would be measured into the grade. The traditional model makes for high failure rates as students who struggle to learn early topics can never catch-up and learn later topics because most courses are taught linearly. This approach changes that by only allowing advanced topics to be started after learners have mastered earlier topics."
