"What makes a good programmer is not what he or she already knows:
it's whether or not they have the capacity to solve problems. Knowing
syntax always plays second fiddle to problem solving."

i always say you can teach people syntax but logic can't be taught....

Yup. Which is why I have a real problem with people saying Java is "hard"
because the concepts aren't any harder than any other language (since
they're the same), and in fact they're probably easier because they're so
rigidly defined. The syntax is finicky, but as we agree, syntax is arguably
the least important component of programming.

I guess Java just appeals to the orderly part of my soul <grin>.
