Subject Keyword Software development ♦ Education ♦ Compiler speed
Abstract This article lays out an intentionally provocative case against modern fast software development tools. Modern compilers run in at most a few seconds when presented with programs of the size students typically encounter. Might this speed encourage programmers to program too much by trial and error? This article will argue that this may in fact be the case.
