[Week 44 rant] Worst CS teacher experience:

In Uni (aka college), CS teacher would show introductory C code during the lecture, then proceed to run it... And compilation errors. And then spend the next 45 mins trying to fix it. Usually they would get it working in the last 5 mins of the one hour lecture.

This would go on every single lecture for the next 10-12 weeks.

Most of it was basic stuff like hello world through to sorting algorithms etc.

At the time it was pretty silly and 3/4 of the class stopped attending the lectures...


In hindsight maybe it was all intentional and training us for what real dev life would be like?
