  • I just hope the people teaching Computer Science degrees have realised that tradtional CompSci stuff (like optimising algorithms) is now largely irrelevant for what most of their graduates are going to be doing, and are teaching development practices like TDD, Continuous Integration, Agile, etc.

    But I doubt they have.

    • While I'm not entirely certain I agree that the CompSci stuff is largely irrelevant, I will agree that universities do seem to be doing a bad job of teaching graduates skills they'll actually need. I don't care if you can code a heap sort from memory as that probably won't influence my decision to hire you. If you are a TDD fan, however, it will influence my decision to hire you (not that I do hiring at the BBC, but I have in the past).
