Comment Re:Do people actually learn to code anymore? (Score 1) 78

I agree that RTFM is a great way to learn, but so is searching the web and learning things in context. Those who don't RTFM are probably just looking to patch something, rather than build out whole applications, so I don't think it's a major concern. I think the best coders will be those who maintain their curiosity and continue to try to improve things, not those who just rip snippets off the web and cobble them into some barely-functioning thing.

Are you saying they should do nothing, and hand out degrees to these kids, sending them into the world thinking that this sort of behavior will always be tolerated everywhere they go? Because that would be setting them up for failure, giving them the wrong idea of how society works, and thus not doing their jobs as educators.
