okay so i found this hilarious, we have an intern who wrote the following when asked to show her java competency:


public static void Main(){
Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in);

String mary="Mary";
String johnson="Johnson";

System.out.println("Welcome, Mary Johnson");


}




i almost fell off my chair!

Don't be an asshole. If she's an intern then mistakes should be expected, not laughed at.

Honestly, DivideByZero, that's not a mistake. It's an elaborate way of saying: "I have no clue what I'm doing."

I agree, though, that there would be no need to be disrespectful about it. Not everybody is built to be a programmer. - Not that we know that Bairon actually did that. Posting anonymously about it here and being an asshole to her face are two very different things.

Seriously? Based on the code you posted, it doesn't look like she's done more than a day or two of a basic Java course. Is nobody paying attention to whether or not these people are actually learning anything during their training? I'd have though there were tests along the way that would evaluate people's progress...

it was training provided by Sun...everyone else is great, she doesnt seem to have even followed through at all...so dont say you doubt our learning systems...R100, 000.00 has been spent on each of the 10 students..whilst i did speak to her about this matter, i found the code itself to be quite funny. if you dont agree, dont post geez people get serious dont you have something better to do than discuss how i (someone who actually works hard) am a bad person for passing comment on someone who clearly wasted time and money by being lazy and not focussing in class DESPITE all the aid given to her (yes we leaise with the students every Friday to discuss their grades and personal issues) so the correct action was taken...i work for Standard Bnak, not some 2 bit company with no procedure.

Regards.

we had MANY issues with her. Lecturer and student complaints but the general learnership (this is now their 6 month practical phase) had certain conditions that prevent us from just firing her, plus we would have lost money, now were gonna place her in another position more adjusted to her.

What was the actual task she was assigned to perform with this code? I'm actually curious.

"No seriously, jokes over. I need your real code." - Interviewer

"What? This is my real code." - Intern

"Then why are you here?" - Interviewer

1 year and seriously, this? Yeah, it's possible if she skipped everyday of that class or slept through it everyday, again, on that class. By the way, isn't a year enough to fire her? I know some companies who fire someone who show signs of not being an asset to the company even at their first day before lunch.

Simply put, this made me happy.
Whether or not this post was truly honest or not(making the statement that I really don't care) last I checked this sub-forum isn't about being serious, just relax. I had my day lightened by this so rawr to the haterz.
