I just read this http://tardis.linux.ie/2030/developers.slashdot.org and I was
shocked at the idea of CS students NOT learning assembly language. Now it has
to be said that it was last century (I won't be more specific) when I was in
college and my first programming was hand assembled 6800 but then I'm an
engineer - not a nancy computer scientist. But nancy or not, computer
scientists learnt assembly languages for various processor, and wrote
Don't they do that any more ? Does a computer science course now consist
solely of Microsoft training modules ?
Say it isn't so . . .
