Asking a person to go through a CS program without a computer is like
asking a Mechanical engineer to design a car without ever having seen
something as complex as a bicycle.  You need both theory and practice
to make a well rounded student.  I would agree with the point that
most CS programs are too heavy on the practice and a little light on
the theory but completely abonding either one would produce worse
