Re: Is Computer Science Really A Science?

Sure, then I'd say all CS people/programmers are scientists to different degrees, because programming is nothing but constant hypothesizing and experimentation. It's almost impossible to be a professional programmer and not follow something that resembles the scientific method. This is because the t...

Re: Is Computer Science Really A Science?

What criteria are you using? These?

Predictability and testability
Reproducibility

If yes, then I would say it is a hard science.

If I had to guess, the auth...
