+Engineering Studies in the Technion</a></h3>

+<blockquote>

+<p>
+The quality of the material [which is taught in the technion] is very good, in 
+my opinion. It is quite up to date and relevant to 
+what we have to learn, with a few exceptions (like the infamous teaching of 
+<a href="http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-il%40cs.huji.ac.il/msg44728.html">C-Shell</a>
+programming in Matam and Mamat). But as a general rule, there aren't many
+complaints here.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+The material seems to cover basics and foundations instead of cutting-edge
+technologies, which is a good thing, in my opinion, because a university's
+purpose is to teach just that. The latter is best taught by experiencing.

+about the Best Introductory Programming Language</a></h3>
+
+<p>
+Thoughts about what is the best introductory programming language in this
+day and age. Includes a critique of some other opinions, some useful relations
+(Language A should come before Language B), a conclusion and other useful
+food for thought.
