I have this habit of getting into the nice guy’s suit at times. And a few times when I was in the suit I took the risk of teaching some of my classmates. Remember, these are people who did their bachelors in computer science and has a gate score (>95 percentile). This one was the latest that happened.
Me: Well.. forget about the low and intermediate level representation. Consider the control flow of this high level program.
a = 1
if ( a not equal to 0)
So, what do you think it will print?
Friend 1: world?
Friend 1: Hello?
friend 1: Hello World.
I nearly had a nervous breakdown.
Before a few months I happened to overhear one of my classmate trying to make another understand, how important Java is. And all of a sudden I heard the following sentence, which reminded me about Pramode sir’s blog article .
friend 2: Computer Science is JAVA.
Me: ……. …. … so JAVA is a programming language and programming is a part of computer science. You see the difference, don’t you?
friend 2: Yup.. But the biggest part of computer science is Java.
Some people never change!
Once I dared to teach someone a bit of complexity analysis. I could not believe that the guy was not joking when he asked such a question.
Me: .. thus the complexity of the algorithm is O(log^2 n). That is a cool proof, right?
friend 3: Yes. But what is the complexity if the input is not n but m?
“friend 3: Yes. But what is the complexity if the input is not n but m?
I feel like I too want to do MTech ( I Promise I won’t ask THIS question again :D)
Ha ha ha so we are still producing Quality Engineers. I though it had stopped with me. BTW, do people Java anymore ? I though C++ was new ‘C’ as apple also have converted all its frameworks in C++.
Had a good laugh..
And the third one.. Terrific!
Incident 1 -> I will never, ever believe it.
Incident 2 -> difference b/w a computer scientist and a jada (oops java) programmer.
Incident 3 -> was that a challi?
>> I have this habit of getting into the nice guy’s suit at times.
seems like you’ve got to do a lot more of that
@ it’s me
I am happy that i could inject a bit of interest in M-Tech studies into your MBA aspiring brain.
You mean the recruitement officers of the 4 companies you worked were stupid..
BTW, I missed your blog article on change of blog.. and was wondering why you were not updating your blog!
1: I can understand.. but it’s true…
3: Look at the link in pramode sir’s comment..
abt the suit.. Even i think so.. but the fact is I looks really odd in that…
@ Pramode sir.
Friend3 – For this you are responsible since you tried to teach him something.
You have a point there… maybe I should have started with ‘m’
This is just to inform all others that vivekettan is the M-Tech topper in CSA.
(he is yet to give me the treat).
Done.. You are going to get a treat for sure, buddy.
I am still confused…. Isn’t the correct answer “world”?
@ Himanshu aka Heman
Hehe… I also am..
Very happy to know that you read my blog.. Thank you for commenting, buddy..
