NYU Professors Attack Java as Damaging to Students
According to a new journal article by two New York University professors, Java programming is ruining computer science students at NYU and elsewhere.
The article in this month's Journal of Defense Software Engineering by Drs. Robert B. K. Dewar and Edmond Schonberg alleges that CS students aren't being taught solid programming languages and that it is leaving them unprepared for the software industry. They specifically attack Java as leaving the students unprepared, and describe them as unable to write programs without a GUI, having little understanding of how their programs and hardware would interact, and completely lacking an understanding of the aspects of important programming languages including C, C++, and others.
The pair seem to be inviting a discussion on the topic, and for our money, we bet they get a lively one.
