short one.

So my CS course is full of people who can't write a fucking for loop (I shit you not) after more than half a year.
And then there's those that don't know what a return type is.

So I asked them once, after they stated that the course sucks, why they even chose it in the first place.
Freely translated it would be:

"I dunno, I thought we'd be doing cool hacker stuff in here..."

At that point I just wanted to jump out of the window.

    Oh boy, those still exist? I had them in class a long time ago. One said he wants to hack the mall wifi but absolutely fails at the basics. He works in retail now. Who knows? Maybe he's hacked the mall wifi.

    I tutored computer science part-time while I was in college. It was hell. So many people didn't actually want to learn computer science and just wanted to get to the part when they can make video games. I even had a student tell me, "I don't care about all this math stuff. I just want to make games."

    And yes, I did check to make sure he wanted to be a game developer who writes code and not some other non-technical career in the game industry.

    @EmberQuill The classmates I had in College ended up working in retail. A few years later, they asked me to tutor them on a specific language. I asked for cash, of course. I was teaching them the basics and they were just bored and asked "Where is the part where we make games?"

    I don't know what these people are expecting, a magical box where you just "make things happen"?

    That's what I'm thinking, they want to skip the basics, and go from zero to hero (=hacker) in an instant. Some people will never understand why the world doesn't work that way.

    @SomeNone because they failed to learn one of the core lessons in life: there's very little magic in the world, and none of it substitutes for luck and diligence.
