Best quotes from IT teacher:

- "C# is a language to program your IDE."
- "C# is a language for beginners, and is not really used in production."
- "We won't use Python to learn programming, because Python is a very old, slow and useless language, and is not really used anymore."
- "Yeah, your algorithm is fantastic, but you wrote 'The answer is: ' instead of 'Answer: ', so it's just a B."
- One of my classmates was bored and opened Notepad++, and when the teacher saw it, she said "I have been teaching programming for years, but I've never seen this program, what do you use it for?"

I feel so lucky that I have started learning programming years before at home, I just couldn't start if I had to learn this way.

    In my day on an IT course, we was forbidden to do programming !

    So things have improved a bit..

    At least she’s not coding real world programs now, that’s a relief to mankind.

    @Nanos well IT is much more than just coding..

    @sladuled

    True, but it is a bit odd for it to be the only thing banned !

    That's like taking a class in car mechanics and being told you can do everything, apart from take the engine apart..

    I found it was due to politics, a local teaching college didn't want our place to teach it, so blackmailed our institution.

    To this day I don't know who was responsible during that time, as there are apparently no records and no one remembers who was in charge then..

    @Nanos HolyFuck o.O
    With us it's normal to have separate courses for programming, network etc... So 'clasic IT course' just goes over the basics, getting to knkw your computer & such..

    @sladuled

    For us there was just an IT course or nothing !

    We did tinker with computers on an archaeological course, but you had to bring your own. :-)

    Consequently I rewrote the software a little I was given for a task there, so it was more efficient, and the time left was used for game playing.

    @Nanos hm..ok, course at what age? I am thinking we might be talking about different stages of education..

    I can imagine devs not knowing Notepad++.

    First of all you'd have to use windows as a development operating system, and even on windows there are plenty of viable alternatives (Atom, Vim, Brackets, VSCode, Sublime, Geany, etc).

    I think making sweeping statements about programming languages is dangerous though... I thought I was pretty well informed about the local job market, until I started looking for a new job a few weeks ago. So many fucking Delphi jobs everywhere. I thought that language went extinct ages ago.

    How is it possible, that those people are teaching IT classes or programming languages?
    Do they ever listen to themselves or read the news about IT things?

    Maybe its just because of it, that its just a 8h job for them and thats it for the day. No more IT rest of the day..

    @jakobev
    That's exactly how it works for them...
    This teacher had another type of job before, and she reeducated herself to become a teacher. (Just teacher, nothing IT). The only reason for this was that being a teacher pays kinda well, and she worked with his tech savvy son in a tech shop for like a month.
    Luckily the most important IT lessons are taught by other teachers (I have like 8 types of IT lessons currently), but this is just disappointing.

    I remember on one course, our IT teacher had previously been a taxi driver, and had no real experience of IT at all !

    It was hard to find anyone who had experience in those days.

    He was quite happy to sit behind his desk and let us get on doing what we wanted. :-)

    Just look at teachers' salaries. Can you blame anyone with an ounce of technical skill for going into industry instead?

    I remember my uncle was offered a really good salary teaching, but he was too old (80+) to be let into Australia !

    Had a former art and music teacher as first guy to teach "web stuff" like html, css and js.

    Scool went like that: he came 5-10 in late. Opened a tutorial on the beamer and told us to copy the url.

    Walked around helping people to "fix" issues. Fix = staring at the error console/css, telling you, you made an error and to campare it with the tutorial code, if the error still persisged, he either told you to start from scratch or blamed it on windows, as mac was far superiour.

    Ha... Good old times. His qualifications: he know the principal and he created a bunch of websites using a WYSIWYG editor... Good times.
    A classmate and I ended up "teaching" he did JS, I PHP, HTML and CSS. When we finished (usually about 10-20 min in), we walked around in class and helped others.

    Damn it and I'm just learning C# !

    I bet if I learn F#, tomorrow it will be G#..

    The "Answer:" thing is a debatable subject but... you can take it either way, i agree with you that lower grade without letting you fix the mistake is a bad decision thou.
    But... if you cant follow simple rules/requirements, how can you expect the teacher/client to be happy? if the exercise specification wanted you to specifically write "Answer:" and you wrote "The answer is ", then you did not carry out the specifications as written. Might sound simple but may cost you quite alot later on if a client is very critical about what you write.

    Python and C# are the 4th and 5th most popular languages according to the tiobe index.

    Tell your teacher they aren't qualified to teach the subject matter. I see python, c#, perl, and VB everywhere.

    A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience's attention, then he can teach his lesson. - John Henrik Clarke

    One good teacher in a lifetime may sometimes change a delinquent into a solid citizen. - Philip Wylie

    A good teacher who can take the zero pay and help kids develop physically, emotionally, socially, is literally an angel. - Eva Amurri
