Bjarne Stroustrup: The mis-education of software developers

Alan Zeichick’s Weblog quotes a very interesting interview of Bjarne Stroustrup (the father of C++) at the blog post "The mis-education of software developers", on the issue of the lack of education on programming style, even at Computer Science university departments.

Bjarne believes that, “few students see code as anything but a disposable entity needed to complete the next project and get good grades. Much of the emphasis in teaching encourages that view.” Ouch!
