La educación y los desarrolladores

La tengo rondando por aquí desde hace varios días pero no me animaba a ponerla: Learning, or, Learning How To Learn.

As a college-bound high school junior, I was impressed. I thought my Apple II was the neatest tool ever, but this guy had a freaking electron microscope. He was articulate, intelligent, and on top of that, one of the coolest people I had ever met. And he graduated from MIT, one of the best engineering schools in the country. During lunch, I asked him how much of his schoolwork applied to his current engineering job. His response?

I can't think of a single thing from my MIT classes I've used on the job.

Y luego:

The value of education isn't in the specific material you learn-- it's in learning how to learn.
