When I was getting started, we were taught to think, not reproduce by rote: we had to code on punched cards, and the tutor got a summary of each students run count: your score dropped with each increased run above two, and was zero if you got to five.

It taught you to learn the language, and proofread your cards: it taught you to think hard before committing to code.

Now, they expect to find the code they need on CP / SO and just throw it in, compile and hand it in - just like history homework: read the page in the book, type it up in Word, hand it in.

Dev isn't like that, and frameworks and patterns don't really help them to learn what the heck they are doing. IMHO, that is!

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
