Alan Turing and Computer Science ( matter of education )
Now, stating that Alan Turing is the modern father of computer science, when dealing with Education nowadays, they want you to learn his ancient language or something that's low level ( E.G. Cobol | Fortran ) which would have some purpose in what way, specifically? Most programmers nowadays don't even use COBOL, or Fortran, more specifically Assembler | C / C++ | PHP ( win ) | Java | etc, which makes it more of a history lesson in Programming? Rather than actually programming the instructions which are converted straight down to BASE 02 ( Binary ), which in fact would be useless to most modern Jobs, unless those skills were harnessed with the power of C/C++ | Assembler.
Is it to make better Programs?
PS . A history lesson is good if you're in Major of Computer Science, but really, what's the point? If its going to be a low level language, then why program in that?
Always good to know them I guess?
Your opinion is welcomed.
PSS Correct me if I'm wrong. ^_^
