General Development What is the best way to think of software development? Is it science? Is it art? Is it craft? Is it something else entirely? Read Steve McConnell's article here.

The age old Software Engineering versus Com Sci fight. Memories from university ;)

Being a computer Engineer, I'm on the engineering side ;) Computer Science people can't code...Just kidding.

I just find engineers better at judging when to optimize, how to handle errors, and using common and simple design patterns.

Maybe thats also due to their just being more computer science students that computer/software engineers so they're of less quality ;)

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure they're better at writing some sort algoritm. For me, its look it up and copy it ;)

Computer scientists are also trained how to properly use "their" vs. "there" and "that" vs. "than" :-).

Calm down, it's the comment section of an internet meta-news site...
He's not writing his thesis. Besides, he could be tired or something. Or he could just be completely ignorant of how to write in english.
