NO RATINGS
@BillGioino:  That's encouraging.  Ok.  Have a serious one for everyone.  I'm in the process of designing a 2 year degree specific to embedded programming and design.  No, it's not a 4 year degree... I know.  What it does is cut out most of the B.S. that students have to go through to get to the meat.  Sad side note: Most CS students that I see in our state don't touch a word of code until their 3rd year!  So, the idea is to cut out that first 2 years and go straight for the gusto.  Question is: How attractive do you think that would be to employers?
