Fang Talks

Fun for the whole family!

So our teacher knows fuckall about her subject.

The second week of project week is promising to be a little less busy school-wise, since we already finished about half of our programs on the first day. Well, programs, little widgets you have to write for exercises, like a small application that converts roman numerals to their decimal counterparts (ie XII becomes 12).

There’s also a free choice exercise, which I’m doing. I chose to make a little maths game in which you have to solve simple equations involving two numbers between 0 and 10. The more you score, the harder it gets. (ie you start with adding, then later subtracting, multiplying, and dividing are added)

It’s glitchy as all because ugh Java. Our teacher told me that the method of drawing stuff we’ve been taught is crappy, unstable, and there’s a way better alternative out there, but they don’t teach that because it’s “too complicated for the newer people”. GOD I SO HATE EDUCATION SOMETIMES. You can’t teach ’em the wrong things and then later on expect ’em to do it perfectly right and optimized! Fuck, we haven’t even covered “writing neat code” yet which should’ve been the first thing you learn if it wasn’t for the fact you need to know how to program first.

Also our teacher can’t even solve problems students have with her own exercises.

    It’s good to know that teachers everywhere are useless. But only in collegs/universities. The teachers in highschools/primary schools are pretty awesome and know what they’re talking about

    Well I think you’re used to knowing more than your teachers, especially when it comes to coding and whatnot. Seeing how some of these new and super cool languages are being written by young people to be more accessible I really don’t think they’re all that difficult for newbies. You should become a teacher, the kind you wish you had.

    You know, a competent one who knows their subject.
