Are You a Blue-Collar Or White-Collar Developer?

moo083 Re:Algorithms (836 comments)

I can't really explain how someone would get to grad school and not know how to code a linked list. And yes, there are exceptions. It all comes down to probabilities and when it comes to programming concepts, the odds are in favor of the person with a four year degree. That doesn't mean that you can't do without it, but the odds are lower.

Oh, you know what I'm trying to say. No need to spend time picking apart an analogy... :P

Agreed. But it all comes down to probabilities. An English Major is more likely to write a successful book, but then there are many with no degree who have gone on to do great things...

moo083 Re:Algorithms (836 comments)

I was making a generalization. There are certainly exceptions, such as yourself. I can only go on the experience I have. I was more talking about what you learn at a vocational school, not what you learn yourself later.

moo083 Algorithms (836 comments)

In my experience people who have gone to vocational schools do not have the same background in algorithms than do people who have gone to four year schools. They do not have as expansive of knowledge in data structures and sorting algorithms and the like. There are many jobs where optimizing is important and knowing which algorithm has the best run time in O() notation can be important. They may know Java, but that doesn't mean that they can code just as well. Just because someone knows how to use a typewriter doesn't mean they can write a book just as well as an English major.

Nobel Winner Says Internet Might Have Stopped Hitler

moo083 Re:what about darfur? (290 comments)

Thats because there is no internet in Darfur. At least, not easily accessible. Germany was a high tech country at the time of WWII.

Saline Agriculture As the Future of Food

moo083 Re:Just curious... (153 comments)

I guess you have to treat these people like alcoholics. The first step is admitted the world has a problem. The next step is to accept a higher power. Its not our fault. God did it. The third step is to turn our will over to God. I'm starting to get worried because I don't know what that means.
