    It could be worse... no, it couldn’t.

    Such a waste of ink

    @rEaL-jAsE sadly the majority of students I've worked with try to memorize code snippets like that instead of understanding what they're doing 😐

    Worked on my printer

    For one, something good about light themes

    Why eclipse?

    @rEaL-jAsE school/university doesn't work like that. Understanding is no must at all, when it doesn't come to maths and stuff. This shit you have to apply to wild problems not even existing in the real world.:b

    We are reaching a level of stupidity that was previously thought impossible.

    hey man if it works for them who are we to judge. I'm loving that black theme though.

    Let's make coding mandatory at schools, that will sort it out

    But, but, but, but...
    They are doing it wrong on so many levels!

    If they are "truly" studying the logic of the code, then taking a picture of the screen is pretty handy at times you need to review. Especially, if the USB ports and/or internet connection is disabled in school. Or, the person is simply not as smart as you.

    The stupid part is they printed it without inverting the colors. What at a fucking waste of ink 😰

    But why ????

    I think the worst part of all is that they're using Eclipse...

    The thing is there is not even the I cant be bothered to download a screenshot software when you can use snipping tool or just press win + print screen lol

    @mjones44 the school default is NetBeans. Eclipse is sooo much better in basically every way.
    Just out of curiosity as a former Java dev, what is the current "industry standard"? Please don't tell me it's IntelliJ...

    @franga2000 it's IntelliJ...

    not sure this is history exam or coding exam

    This is about as stupid as universities making CS students take programming tests in pencil and paper

    @grgersh they were studying for a paper and pencil test 😅

    Yup im a student too and my last test was basically "write quicksort, insertion sort etc" you have memorized before

    @rEaL-jAsE I had an Java exam today. My college didn't use us any great editors like nano, vim or atom, instead they tell us to write programs in notepad. So I single-handedly remembered all the import functions that are needed so that I can write a program that doesn't show any errors. So I think that kids used printouts for remembering the functions that they're need. Still idk but printouts that's silly.

    @Banele all that ink going to waste... O.O

    @sladuled complete waste I know. I hope they passed though and hopefully @franga2000 has shown them a better way of doing things.

    @Ritzing yeah lol

    My school teachers had a clever way to prevent students getting good grades from learning snippets of code.
    At the exams, they pulled out an exercise different from what seen in class BUT they provided in /opt all the javadoc and correction of exercises. You could get a good grade only by understanding what you were doing.

    One guy at uni, printed out 40 something pages of blocks of code no comments or anything just full blocks of code, we tried telling him it isn't a good idea in the nicest way possible. He lashed out at us and told us his way was right.

    Then during the exam, you hear this guy cursing throughout the whole test, I wonder who it was.....

    Fucking disgusting indentation and vertical spacing... they only learn shit nowadays... Ah and learning from printouts is bad too.

    Everyone has a different way of approaching studying. If it works for them, then super.

    I for myself love to print out stuff if I have to study from it extensively. Gives me better control / multi screen view of whats going on.

    But two dimensional arrays, for loops, if branches... that stuff isn't too hard guys.

    It's sad, because if they would've payed some attention it's very easy to learn. I don't know the circumstances, maybe the lecturer was bad, but this stuff is easier than most math.
