Re: What can I do with coding skills?

I've been going through a bunch of random Wikipedia articles lately, and I think I'm beginning to understand what CS/programming is all about. To my knowledge, programming is a means for creating software that does something important (the act of which requires a level of skill to do efficiently), a...

Re: What can I do with coding skills?

Hey thanks for the replies everyone! It seems that I have a lot to learn.

One question though: what's Project Euler for? I solved the four easiest problems using Java. Do you guys view it as an effective way for learning a programming language?

What can I do with coding skills?

I'm in my second semester of college and I'm currently taking an intro Java course (I never programmed before college, and I started with C last semester). So I know the basics of programming, but something that's really been bothering me is that I don't know how this applies in the real world. What...

Re: Which CS class should I take?

For CS1:MO, here's the course syllabus . The guy teaching the class apparently has a striking resemblance to Gordon Freeman, and he's also a decent professor. My roommate is taking Programming with Objects this semester, and it's a course based off the "Big Java" textbook. Here's a syllabu...

Which CS class should I take?

So I'm in a scheduling dilemma because I'm undecided between electrical engineering and computer science, and I feel like my advisors are giving me misleading advice. Here's the lowdown: I'm taking a "Programming I for Engineers" class this semester, which is basically just a breeze intro ...

Re: Should I take Intro Chem?

My advisor actually suggested taking chem at a community college, maybe I'll do that. Thanks!

Re: Should I take Intro Chem?

I'm leaning toward EE/CS right now, so chem is irrelevant. It is required though, but it's not something I'd be bothered to self-study. Sucks, I guess I'll have to take chem. Thanks for the advice though!

Should I take Intro Chem?

I'm an engineering student in my freshman year of college. I haven't declared my engineering specialization yet, but I have taken calculus and physics in high school and I'm ready to choose. However, my advisor wants me to take intro chem (basically AP Chem) next semester because I don't have AP cre...

Knowledge

I feel as if I'm becoming more and more alienated from the community-at-large by not reading more books. Does anyone have any that they would like to recommend (I'm interested in science, philosophy, pretty much everything)?

Thanks in advance. :)
