One complaint Howard voiced in that interview was the lack of security-related
awareness and training among entry-level programmers arriving at Microsoft.
He specifically pointed a finger at undergraduate institutions, which he said
were producing programmers who didn't have to consider code vulnerabilities
during their formal education. As a result, Microsoft now sends new arrivals
to a weeks-long security training program, just to get them up to speed. In
a sense, Microsoft is doing the work that schools should've accomplished.
We've heard other complaints, as well, about college-level programs.
Our senior editor, Kathleen Richards, is working on an upcoming feature about
computer science education in colleges and graduate schools, and how it's changing
(or not changing) to meet modern challenges. We want to hear from you. If you're
hiring newly graduated programmers, what are you noticing?
And as a development manager, if you could send a message to the people who
run the computer science curricula at major schools, what would you want to
say to them? Now is your chance. E-mail me at [email protected].

Microsoft, apparently trying to enhance every product it has with an AI-powered Copilot, announced a new one for the latest release of SQL Server Developer Tools (SSDT) in Visual Studio.
A cross-platform media player highlights the new Uno Platform 4.9, the latest edition of the application framework that lets developers write an application once in XAML and C# and deploy it to any target platform.
"As opposed to traditional deep learning (DL) model training, On-Device Training requires efficient use of compute and memory resources."
With Visual Studio v17.6 becoming generally available recently, Microsoft provided a peek at what's coming up in the next iteration, VS 2022 v17.7
Dev team shows how Welcome revamp was first presented and then how it was shaped by community feedback.
