As threats, regarding these two risks, Spectre and Meltdown, Fruhlinger wrote, “In the first days of 2018, published research revealed that nearly ever computer chip manufactured in the last 20 years contains fundamental security flaws, with specific variations on those flaws being dubbed Spectre and Meltdown ” (Fruhlinger, Jan 15, 2018). Fruhlinger was stating this: despite the best known efforts Electrical Engineers and Computer Scientists exercised, computer chip technology dated 1998 AD - 2018 AD has experienced an error, design flaws, that led to known defects, Spectre and Meltdown, and these are potentially great failures.  Side-channel technology requires high grade technical research, and this can be because Spectre and Meltdown exist, so a layman would not have known it, 22 years ago.

Sedgewick accorded: recognizing the "truth": the increasing educator count; but educators have not met this need.  Is Computer Science Normal Sedgewick asked: was requiring each college student one Computer Science course normal? Sedgewick described his question: debatable. For all students: As an available necessity, Sedgewick supported Computer Science. Except Computer Science, Sedgewick stated colleges and universities: in almost any course discipline, they are allowing enrollment: for any student.

On my development experience, Dash's criticism #ad Dash wrote, "We developers are very particular about our IDEs and with a good reason."

Dash wrote that I spend my major development time: with an Integrated Development Environment, unknown and unspecific work, and love and care choosing the right Integrated Development Environment.
