    How does he compile them tho? XD in my web development class in UNI, the teacher legit asked us to design a web site on paper with css and html and all

    I don't find this wrong in program logic formulation classes. If you cannot write pseudocode then how do you expect to break down logic in more difficult problems in the future?

    When the problem is hard enough I write it down almost like so.

    Maybe it helps memorize code?

    @jennytengsonM I was never asked to write a program on paper, but I hear that many are. It would not be bothering if they were asked to write pseudocode -- it's a very handy skill and paper&pen are exactly the tools for it! (well okay, a whiteboard is better, but hey, not everyone has a whiteboard at home!)

    What I find annoying is that they have to write a compiling piece of code. Meaning all the quotes, all the semicolons -- everything. Meaning they are forced to learn a language rather than how to build the logic flow.

    That is annoying IMO. And frankly not that useful.

    What is wrong with writing a program on paper? If someone can type it on keyboard, they can also write it on paper. That is there are no fancy IDE, which does part of the typing for them.

    @arjob I don't know about you, but I love my backspace button because I misspell function names often.
    Can't do that with paper. It ends up looking like a mess.

    @PrivateGER I do not know about all the schools, but where I studied, I have to say that when we were asked to say write a program in BASIC, we were tested for our logic and a few basic syntax. But yes, once in college or University few will ask students to write entire programs. But even then, we are asked to write algorithms.

    @arjob Yeah, German high schools want you to write full Java programs (multiple classes) without any syntax errors.
