ACM Fireside Chat
David has posted about the ACM fireside chat that took place last night. Here are my observations.
My sincere thanks to David, michael, Sean, Joseph, and to the new officers Ben, Jim, Raquel, James for all their work for the ACM chapter.
I think points 4 and 5 are really good. I'm taking 342 next semester and am worried because I have no programming experience in anything but Java.
I especially like point 5 however. In fact, maybe it could be taken a step further. I have Linux installed on my computer, and wanted to do my programming in it, but never really had enough time to actually get everything working correctly. It is significantly more difficult, I found, to get Java working under Linux. So maybe if there were at least instructions available, students would be more likely to try out Linux. Actually, this summer I was planning on trying to set up a Linux computer that can completely duplicate my Windows computer, and of course Java will be on there. I'd be happy to provide any results that I find to help future students.
