A Rite of Passage Ceremony for Computer Science Graduates?

Pledge of the Computing Professional
Medical doctors have their White coat ceremony and Engineers have their Order of the Engineer ceremony; these rite of passage ceremonies remind graduates about the importance of proper ethical and moral behavior in their professional practice.  However, until very recently computer science graduates did not get an equivalent ceremony.  Given how much we all rely on software, isn't this disparity ironic? Dr. Ken Christensen of the University of South Florida, joins us in this episode to talk about the Pledge of the Computing professional.

Listen to learn more about the pledge, its history, and how your institution can help promote computing as a profession.
