Undereducated software developers


I was just reading
More Trouble with Programming
The second part of our interview with Bjarne Stroustrup, the inventor of C++.

When I came this line…

Indeed, one serious problem is that currently, too many software developers are undereducated and undertrained.

and I couldn’t agree more. Holding a degree from any college hardly makes one a software developer… Colleges here in India are churning out “software professionals” who know nothing about software. I have millions of examples to support that. It is a grim situation cause the bad code written by them becomes part of many software systems. This introduces flaws in architecture and design, that not only cost a lot to fix, but may go undetected for months or years together.
