Things you don't learn at university

As experienced software developer, maybe you also have learned that good education isn't everything. Especially as programmer, you'll never finish learning. There is always a new language, some new design patterns or a cool new algorithm. Lesson for today: Intelligent Design sort. Damn it's fast.

good education… i wish i even had that. i just found out that my university actually has only 4 computer science instructors. 4..total! the entire department is 4 people. that’s ridiculous, no wonder the program sucks. finish learning? i haven’t even started learning anything.

ha ha !! There is also the supra-intelligent design sort : all you have to do is delete the list, so you SAVE memory instead of not using memory at all…

then of course there’s the Carl Sagan sort…repeated random permutations…it works, but it may take “billions and billions of years”

>> Where is the Darwin Design Sort?
Nowhere, that’s the point. ;) Else it looks like the Sagan version, which is only a rehash of Darwin. Though actually it is more like repeated random non-pathogenic permutations

Hahaha, I remember seeing this a few months back. I showed it to a CS prof, he got a good laugh out of it.
