Makes sense to me. what is the point of teaching dead languages like
Ada, Pascal, and PL/I? Teach C, Assembler, and Java/C# (for the
mainstream), and some lisp variant (Scheme, ML, Haskell) and Prolog
variant for variety. But Ada, Pascal, and PL/I are suitable only for a
"history of programming languages" course :)
What is wrong with this picture ?
I see both of you willing to mandate the teaching of C and yet not
mandate the teaching of any of Ada, Pascal, PL/I etc.
