Computer science professor has brilliant comeback to man who tried to explain computer science to her


Occasionally, what we have to deal with at work can get on our nerves. Jen Golbeck, computer science professor at the University of Maryland, can certainly relate.

She tweeted out a complaint about the computer programming language, Java:

At this point, a man named Ludovic Reenaers took to responding that she should actually learn it:

Of course, being a computer science professor, Golbeck certainly knows Java. She told Reenaers so, and screenshot the exchange to express her annoyance:

Golbeck’s screenshot has gone viral and obtained thousands of likes and retweets. It’s not hard to see why, as she certainly had the right to be upset. Hopefully Reenaers and others research to see if one is an expert in a topic before telling them they should learn it.
