 The Perils of JavaSchools

Wonderful article by Joel Spolsky on why programming should be harder in schools.

"But it's still important for some of the most exciting programming jobs. Without pointers, for example, you'd never be able to work on the Linux kernel. You can't understand a line of code in Linux, or, indeed, any operating system, without really understanding pointers."
