"A remark by Vineet Nayar, CEO of Indian outsourcer HCL
Technologies, encapsulated this attitude. Speaking in New York City
in 2009, he opined that the majority of US college grads are
"unemployable." They're focused only on getting rich, and have less
patience than their global counterparts on learning critical IT
"His attitude is echoed from within the US. Robert Dewar, a
professor emeritus in Computer Science at New York University, told
me in 2008 that college CS programs have been dumbed down to the
point that graduates are essentially incompetent. Bjarne
Stroustrup, designer of the C++ language and a professor at Texas
A&M University, said to me that he's heard of employers –
from Microsoft to Apple to IBM – bemoaning the poor quality
of CS grads."
