I'm sure things will be different in industry and your boss will let you use whatever special-snowflake dev environment and libraries you like, right?

Or better yet. You're too good to beg, so you will make demands for accommodations in interviews. There's only hundreds of thousands of prospects with far more experience and technical expertise competing for the same positions who aren't going to think about starting petty bullshit arguments over IDEs or whatever.

Also, arrogance and intractable views on minutia are two highly desirable traits that every developer expects from their coworkers. A nontrivial part of the job is getting a bunch of people in the same room from different teams and possibly different orgs with different overall goals and different visions to agree on things, and that's hard enough, but I'm sure they'll be willing to hear out your brilliant reasoning and bow down to your ironclad logic.

>>46686432
While I agree centering your abilities around the niches of any one IDE are bad, Visual Studio is a fantastic IDE and there's no reason not to use it for .NET-centered projects or C/C++. It even has some good plugins for CPython/ IronPython.

You're not impressing anyone with your codeBlocks/ Sublime skills, wizardo.

Software jobs are usually all about making things happen within constraints. Time and budget are usually the two big constraints, but technical constraints are almost always a part of it as well. Usually, the higher-paying jobs have less well-defined problems and more / tighter constraints to deal with. And most companies don't put a priority on elegant, beautiful code with absolutely everything working exactly how it was intended with every other system - they care mostly about being able to deliver results to customers and driving the business forward.

Any good programmer should be able to work within whatever constraints exist, putting aside personal feelings or attitudes about it, recalling but not dwelling on past experiences. A great programmer should be able to identify ways to improve existing systems or workflows and accommodate any anticipated future growth / direction changes, as well as provide migration paths and scope estimates. An excellent programmer can actually influence the business to take these steps by providing financial / customer impact justification, and then drive it home / own it end-to-end.

Because any trained robot can write code. Coding is pretty easy honestly. Most SDEs are hired to solve problems, and the solutions to those problems need to take all technical and business needs into consideration.

Short version, you're a moron pushing back on your professor over something this simple, because it's only going to get worse.

False. Freshman here, in one of my classes they've stressed the importance of familiarizing yourself with the terminal and using an editor like vim. The lab machines are all running Ubuntu as well.

Some of my college lecturers would emphasize the importance of knowing how to use vi, because it's often the only available text editor on Linux servers and the like.

This.
You can typically do whatever the fuck you want, provided you can work with the team no problems.

Plus, good programmers can make plenty of demands, shitty programmers are a dime a dozen, but an interview is as much a chance for you to see where you'll be working, as it is for them to see if you're worth hiring.
If you have any self respect, choose somewhere you like.

Worst part is working with people using VS2010, and they can't use half the c++11 features.

>>46692989
Yea, if the code works, I doubt they'll care.
This is to help the people who can't code without the IDE hand holding, and standardizing it to avoid having to install every IDE from eclipse to vs to compile the projects that all rely on the IDE build system.

but, anon, monodevelop doesn't have any of the ASP.NET development stuff to drag+drop together a website. (web forms designer)

If you need C or C++, use "CodeBlocks", or "NetBeans" (with Clang or GNU toolchain).
If you need C#, use "MonoDevelop".

It won't run in Wine, make a dual boot or a virtual machine if you got shitloads of RAM and a good CPU.

>>46684303
Dual boot and use it. More than likely you will not run into problems with gcc, but you will on VS's compiler. If it doesn't work on the compiler your instructor uses, he'll mark it off. I learned the hard way.

Windows 7 is fine with 2gb of ram.

VS2010 can do anything that 2013 can - it will run with minimal amount of rams.

School should be mostly about getting connections. The degree is just another resume liner that is part of the process, but making the connections should be your first concern and the majority of your time spent. Learning of course is nice and possibly necessary depending on how much you already do or don't know.

I have to take this stupid shit too. I already took an entire course on C#, passed it flying colors, only showed up for the exam and project.

Now I have to take the C# + ASP.NET equivalent. C# is fine, I am not liking ASP.NET though. Really wish I could have skipped the first portion of the class. Even better, since most of my class did not take C#, they took VB, my prof has to teach them the basics of C#.

So essentially I'm paying for a class that is a reiteration of the class I just took with ASP.NET basics tacked on.

>talk to prof that I'm doing research project for
>mention that I will need to wait a week to get the next portion of the program done because I have shit to do like the exam tomorrow
>tells me not to worry about it because it's just basic shit
>wish I had the balls to ask him if he could get me exempt from that exam so I could work on his junk and my other class's project

Wish he taught more courses, he's great and actually knows his material.
