 Something strange happened to software development
#1
I was checking out some questions and answers regarding programming languages and this is what I have found there.

I found some paragraph quite interesting and started wondering why teachers would care to make their students waste their precious time with nonsensical stuff. Sarcasm + Confused

The Internet might be either your friend or enemy. It just depends on whether or not she has a bad hair day.

Well, if Moghunter used inheritance when making his original XP menus, his scripts would have been 50% shorter and more compatible with nearly anything else.

Nonsensical stuff?   Toy problems?  Perhaps that would be dependent upon the professor.  When I was dealing with code, it was more towards dealing with customer databases, point of sales and salaries.  Still,  I expect Java to be more audio-visual, so gaming would be a logical direction.

Be wary of professors with special projects...  One might be putting together a lazer weapon system using his students as workers:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nKXjJ7O0s4
