A few years from now and Computer Science
graduates won't have
seen a console terminal window let alone typed a command on one.
Imagine the complexity of getting a computer science student to
understand why they would type "ls -l" at a "$" prompt [...]
Well, I can assure that our Engineering graduates (Uni Waikato)
are being required to learn scripting and the bash prompt in
their first year computing studies. So, even if the computer
science graduates can't (and to be honest, I am still bumping
into many computer science students who can) the engineering
Yes ENG182 is very cool. Nice that it teaches bash and Python. Shame
about the C#. Having to catchup on the C# that they missed out on for
future C# papers and no carry on of Python is something to work on.
More Python savvy lab assistances/tutors would help also - though I've
heard students stepping up to this which is cool, peer
tutoring/learning. A sysadmin course similar to what they offer at
Otago Polytechnic would be cool.
