Advice for Computer Science College Students


Hi !

Today i will share a very useful and important link for us , CS students . It’s a very good practice to learn from others who have succeded it before us 🙂 So stop programming for a while and begin to read this paper . To sum up , he says there is 7 key things to do it :

  1. Learn how to write before graduating.
  2. Learn C before graduating.
  3. Learn microeconomics before graduating.
  4. Don’t blow off non-CS classes just because they’re boring.
  5. Take programming-intensive courses.
  6. Stop worrying about all the jobs going to India.
  7. No matter what you do, get a good summer internship.

1 says it is more important to learn how to communicate your work to others in both spoken and written English.Writing a blog is a good practice.

We also should learn C programming although we will never use it in a project.Joe says this is the language every computer scientits use to communicate with each other (sure it is!)  for example they chat like  :

Cs1 : printf (“hi Cs2 how it is going”)

Cs2 :scanf (“%s”,%Cs1)   , printf (“thanks Cs1 , every think is well”)

Also an important thing i see in the article is it says dont blow off boring non-CS classes.It says that it means you just work when the work is fun but no employer searches a funny CS graduate who works just to have fun! Every work has a boring line.
