hmm software engineers should be trained on how to write

like, words

lot of them need to be trained on how to write code too but writing words is an underrated skill that's necessary and also nobody does it


CS major programs need to be less vocational. make room for actually mandatory philosophy classes, technical writing classes, and also "what they didn't teach you in AP US history"

@haskal In my country state college has a "mandatory basic year" where they teach you philosophy, history, how the scientific method works and more

@haskal @furtivo they had mandatory history classes & such at my uni too and 100% of engineering students ignored those classes 🤷

@haskal i have this at my school and it's godawful because us academia ruins everything
i am not going to be staying at this school
