Hmm, looks neat, perhaps. I'll give it a gander in the near future

did anyone else wake up with a migraine today?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 09 2016 14:55
yup. But it's cuz I couldn't get to sleep last night. Lack of sleep = migraine which is why ya'll might hear me talk to much about ways to get me to sleep xD

it's altogether possible mine is from the same thing, I woke up with my back in knots from top to bottom too. Almost nothing I can take for it because I'm allergic to nsaids. Tonight I'll have a rum and coke before I go to bed should sleep like a rock then

o ok, whatcha workin on? I'd love to be able to go back I'm ineligible for financial aid at the moment and kinda scared that by the time I graduated some of this will be useless anyway obviously not the base stuff but there's a push to get away from java which most schools still use as their primary OOP course and who knows if things like ROR will have staying power over the well established languages like python perl sql etc

I have two math classes (precalc II and statistics) public speaking and CIS112 which is data structures and algorithms.

are you just crazy good at math or is it a requirement for your degree?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 09 2016 15:12
Lots of math required for computer science in general.

I barely got past algebra 2 discreet mathematics was like the first class I failed in college
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 09 2016 15:14
calculus is the required class so I have to do all the prereqs for it. precalc 1 in the spring and now 2.

I guess I would have expected that more in an engineering tract like I know they have software engineering and that machine code / c++ tend to use a lot of math

Computer science is a lot of algorithms. algorithms are based a lot in math.

College computer science is, to quote a teacher, more "more theoretical and foundational (sic) and not focus as much on the applied work skills or cutting edge technology". By the time a college degree is finished, knowledge should be very deep on theory, algorithms and the like.

being a server guy I can appreciate the approach, we had 3 server courses in 2 of them we didn't touch a server it was all about the theory of how to administer one so it was scalable and worked well for a diverse population regardless of what OS was on it. I didn't appreciate it when I was in school but I certainly do now that I've built a fe.

Yup! It's also why I don't take summer classes and do online bootcamps, personal projects and the like. I feel it gives me a more rounded experience.
