Exam board deletes C and PHP from CompSci A-levels • The Register
Looks like the UK have dropped C (as well as PHP and C#) from their syllabus.
Delphi? VB6? Why? Delphi was cool for a little while may years ago and the world would be a much better place without VB6Quote:
Schools teaching the Assessment and Qualifications Alliance's (AQA) COMP1 syllabus have been asked to use one of its other approved languages - Java, Pascal/Delphi, Python 2.6, Python 3.1, Visual Basic 6 and VB.Net 2008. The final resits allowing work in C, C# and PHP will be held in June 2011.
I can understand Python being involved heavily, but getting rid of C with all the linux code out there as well as it giving a helping hand towards things like C++ and Objective-C it seems daft.
Then I'm self taught and for my coding work I'm self employed so maybe I'm missing something
