Lmao! Java was my first programming language, but being a CS undergrad its obviously not my only one. Funny joke, you take this pic?

Truth.

Java abstracts things too much for the beginners.

I started on C when I was a computer engineering major.

When I switched into Computer Science, all the freshmen had to learn Java. I found it to be super easy, coming from C, and I feel that I understand many nuances of programming that my peers simply don't get.

This! I went from comp engineering to CS and from C to java as well. cout>System.out.print

Actually I believe that is

Code:

Code:
cout<<System.out.print;
You were probably thinking of cin.

I think he was referring to cout is preferred over System.out.println() not that you should have two << instead of one <

but..meh

Java is a decent learning language because you can get logic and basics down without worrying about platform details and other things that are abstracted away, but I argue that it's an absolute requirement that students take a C/C++ course later on so they can learn about memory management, null-termination, pointers, and all that good stuff. Even if you never use it, it makes you a better programmer when you understand what's going on behind the scenes.

Of course, a good computer scientists has to be able to abstract to a very high level while understanding low level nuances.

I think programmers should be familiar with at least one OO language (java, c#, c++). One Procedural language(C, fortran, ectra). One assembly language, and one scripting language.
