> Programming assignments need to be brought back! CS students like hands-on learning: an algorithm becomes real only once they see it run on real data. Also, computer scientists today —whether in industry or academia—rely on subroutine libraries and scripting languages.
> A few lines in Matlab and Scipy can be written in minutes and run on datasets of millions or billions of numbers. No JAVA or C++ needed! Algorithms education should weave in such powerful tools. It is beneficial even for theory students play with them.
