I strongly concur.

I suspect that most Monks who object to homework posts (and I'm one of them, though I don't usually want to spend a vote on them) object because they work with, or have worked with in the past, a "programmer" who insists on having their hand held full-time. Thus, we react strongly when we see the same thing happening elsewhere. (Also, on a personal level I'm irritated that "some Anonymonk" considers my time to be so much more expendible than theirs.)

As for the four engineers story: let's assume that the course in question was thermodynamics. Which engineer would you rather have designing jet turbine blades?

Update:"What's a heat transfer equation?" "How do I do this integral?" "What does this graph mean?" "Why's titanium better than nickel for that part?"
