All developers need to understand what's going on at the machine level so they understand concepts like pointers, heaps and memory allocation/deallocation. Too many younger developers don't understand these basic concepts and the resulting bloated execution environments show this.

A good computer science degree that drills these concepts into its graduates is well worth the time. Unfortunately too many computer science programs gloss over fundamental machine operating concepts.
