Submission + - Where Are Tomorrow's Embedded Developers?

An anonymous reader writes: In a similar vein to a previous article about the New York professors who take Java to task for damaging Computer Science education, Mike Anderson of the PTR group wonders why it's so hard to find good embedded developers these days.

"As for today's CS programs, it seems that long gone are the computer architecture classes, writing code in assembly language (or even C at this point) and engineering software economics. In fact, a large number of CS majors apparently believe that everything can be implemented in a virtual machine and that both memory and central processing unit (CPU) cycles are infinite."
