Tics RAGE!

Today in our TICS class we had to do an evaluation of our instructor Aaron Pace.

One of the things that came up was how he doesn’t really lecture and kinda points us in a direction and tells us to boldly go.

What I don’t get is why people think that this is bad. No, he’s not teaching you how to program in HTML ok, that’s easy. REALLY easy. HTML is probably the easiest thing we will ever learn here at Neumont, and is barely even worth a section of class time for it. What Aaron does, is he actually forces you to learn how to learn. What do I mean by this? Basically, Aaron does like mother birds to the young, except that instead of just pushing you out of the nest, he shoots you out of a cannon, and you either figure out how to fly, or you get ownt. That’s how it is in the business. When your boss wants something done, you don’t get nice little chunks of code that pretty much reduce your job down to nothing. Oh no. You get NOTHING, and you have to build everything from scratch. In order to do that, you have to LEARN the tools or methods required to get the job done. If you can’t do that, you’re not going to make it in a professional environment.

Other Stuff

So today I’m diving into moodle development. I have no idea what to expect or even where I should start, but it should be a lot of fun, and if I have any problems I can just get Aaron to help me out. Maybe I’ll get monies for this. =]

About boringtechie

Hello, I'm the boring techie! So you've landed yourself on this site due to me or someone else linking you here, and you're wondering: "What does this kid do, and why should I even care?" Right? Of course you are. Basically, I'm a Techie, though I'm not as boring as the title says, that's one of those things where the word means the opposite of what's REALLY going on... Anyway, I write tuts and make commentaries. That's about it...
