Anyone on /b/ with a computer science degree or in the process?

I want to get into software development/ design.
Any info would be great.
>>
Lol got my degree last week.

The thing I learned is that you don't need a degree in computer science to develop software. I think something like Java Certification would get you programming faster and for less $$$.
>>
>>595408650
I've heard that often, that you don't need a degree really.
I've been told it's nice for companies to look at, but ultimately they look at your creativity, problem solving, etc.

I'm teaching myself HTML and CSS right now, Java is next. It's just hard gettting started by yourself you know?

If you know HTML and CSS, JavaScript is the natural next step, not Java. You can make the server side with node.js if you want.

You don't really need too much guidance once you understand the basics of a language. I use Java because I'm still green, but it wasn't too complicated to understand, and there's always some online resource to use.

I would highly recommend checking out codeacademy.com to get the feel of it. I did about 8% of JavaScript class/course and enjoyed it, so I decided to try out programming I.

I'm in programming II and my major is Computer Science.

those of you saying you don't need a degree... this is true, and is true for most things. if you want to have the same education as a graduate you better fucking bust your ass full time understanding computer science concepts and actually BUILDING things to show people. I'm not talking about glueing shit code together. School will give provide you with networking and force you to expand your thinking into areas you wouldn't normally go in. Some may or may not be useful immediately (english, calculus, physics, chemisty, statistics) depending on the industry you work in. You could always learn this on your own but you need to FUCKING BUST YOUR ASS. I can spot a shit coder from a mile away.

Really depends on the Professor. My last professor was very lax on math, she rarely made us use formulas in homework.

My current Professor doesn't fuck around. He's a math/computer science teacher. Holy fucking shit this guy expects you to know every formula off of the top of your head. I'll probably just go full retard and memorize formulas and how to execute them.

Very rarely will you have to do anything too math intensive. Computer Programming classes are oddly logical.

For example. I was working with a library in python called scrapy in my last internship. The people that develop that library created a chat room in Irc for people to exchange ideas there. Someone looked up my ip address there and found out that I was in the area and asked me to go to their company to talk about a job opportunity.

About open source software, you could fix some bugs and talk about that during the interview. Since open source projects have all the changes documented they will be able to see your work.

i know, i was there 8 years ago starting my first year of school. heres my university career summed up:

first year:
i knew shit about programming "whats an array?!? im failing mechanical eng class, this is too hard". told myself that i would finish school no matter what
second year:
found a friend to help me out (really nice and smart guy). i made sure i worked just as hard if not harder than him on project we were working on together. still struggling with school

third year:
pick up ruby on rails, start a startup with my friend. incubate at a popular startup. everything i learn is on my own. reading the fuck out of ruby/rails and still gonig to school

fourth year:
still working on startup and its not going so well, it fails. learned a shit ton about business and what not todo

fifth year:
finish off school hating it, want to build things

1st job, dev, 3 months, sucks ass. i sell myself as a professional in interviews

2nd job is better, intermediate dev, 1.5 years, aways learning and contributing my design knowledge. when i tell them im leaving for my 3rd company, they want to give me a 30k raise to stay

3rd company, senior dev to team lead in 11 months. i love it here. looking to be in management role soon


also fuck certificates. they make you look like a idiot. if i interviewed someone and they had a certificate and they didn't need it for the role, id be like "really"?
>>
If you can code you're gold...degree is helpful but means jack shit if you're looking for someone to hold your hand on the job. i have a degree, one of my coworkers never finished highschool...but he's an awesome coder.

temp agencies keep sending us lame ass dicks who have the degree but act like babies, they don't last in our field.

be the man who can be dropped into a burning house and code his way out...be the one who gets the job done.

so many companies looking for talent here, hard to find. i am cozy in my job but get tons of offers for other companies.

rule of thumb, if you have the talent to code, then you can earn.
>>
>>595414073

As far as I know USA goes really easy on the math part. You just have to do your homework as far as I know.

Other countries, I think you need to take that very serious. My advise would be never use the book recommended by the professor, specially if it is called concrete mathematics. Grab a easier one and be happy.
>>
>>595408650
The way you do this is, odd as it seems, Anon, by doing it and the problems are basically all there for you to solve.
But whay is even more odd is that you would actually ask such a question. Do IT - one problem at-a-time.

I couldn't disagree more.

Software Engineering is the closest thing to a traditional trade in the professional world. Having someone that can mentor you is way more important than any tutorial.

In the U.S you usually need the book for economic reasons, as well as for practical use.

All of the courses at my college use Pearson Books, and the online service MyMathLab, used to use WebAssign but moved towards this.

You need the assigned book to do well with the homework, as well as get the online code, and also be familiar with the problems in the book. Most of the testing material will come from the homework and book.

The textbooks are actually pretty fucking good. I use them to supplement what the Professor glosses over.

Also, I don't know how or why, but once you get to Calculus shit gets easier as opposed to harder. At least that's how I feel at the moment.

>pic related.

>>595414237
Wow, thank you.

That sounds exactly like I thought it would.
I have to fail along the way to learn, but knowing it's apart of the process is nice.

I think once I'm out of the mud and can actually understand everything I'm doing then it feels like I would be able to then start completely busting my ass.

I didn't say you should take classes. I said you would learn more by doing it with the supervision of a mentor.

School isn't really about learning anything. It's about proving that you have the tenacity to stick with a shitty situation for 4-5 years.
>>
>>595415251

just to give you an idea of what i mean by "bust your ass". i've spend more time programming and learning then i have on entertainment in the last 8 years. sometimes you will feel like trying to learn something new like like moving a brick wall. honestly, just keep pushing forward. take different approaches. come back to it after a couple days rest. eventually it becomes second nature and you are the expert. you will stare at code for 6 hours trying to debug when you first start out. those 6 hours end up reinforcing what not todo and that has made you a better programmer.

There isn't the 'one' book I can work through beside the lectures since the professor assigned a bunch of books. He said to these that we should pick the one which "suit us the best". That's okay, but the problem is following: there are some things in the lectures which aren't covered in the books and must be found elsewhere.
Especially it lacks the problem sets and exercises you'd normally do to get it really down. Just solving the homework alone didn't do for me.

I did too. School was awesome, but if you're STEM don't think that classes will ever prepare you for what you'll encounter in the professional world.

Someone else brought up a great point though, there are some great books about being a better engineer. Read 'Clean Code' or really anything else by Uncle Bob. If you could combine (Uncle Bob) Martin, Fowler, and Feathers into a single tome it would be a programming bible.

>>595416591
>Just solving the homework alone didn't do for me.
It did for me personally. There's enough variation to cover all bases. I did A LOT of homework last semester. Average problems per week was about 80.

Some weeks were easy, but even then it was time consuming. Its just fucking exhausting at times. Didn't help that I was taking 7 classes last semester, with one of them being an almost 20 hour a week course in it by itself.

Fuck me. Last semester disgusted me.

I'd definitely recommend buying the Pearson issued textbooks. Shits legit.

im sorry you had to go through that.

few things to keep in mind non-programming related. when you start working, if you want an easier time moving past the 80k - 100k mark you'll need to be seen as a valuable person among your peers (not just other programmers). thing you do need to be outward facing and beneficial to the company. be an expert at something is good, being able to communicate your expertise is essential

i've chosen to be what people in the industry call a "unicorn". im a professional developer, i love business and its always on my mind when thinking about what im building. i talk to the business teams a lot. and im a designer (not a great one yet but my goal in 10 years is be an amazing designer). the design teams always run stuff past me before they finalize too. every department asks for my opinion but im a developer. design and business isn't for ever dev but i love it

>>595416579

It's funny. I interview technical candidates for the company I work for and while I will look for education on CVs, it's not really that big a deal. I'd rather be able to have a discussion about polymorphism, or the benefit of a design pattern, then talk about course work.

I've interviewed people with Masters in a technical field that couldn't write the signature for a java main method on a white board. I've also interviewed people with a GED, and after they breezed through all the canned interview questions we sat around and wrote UML representations of board games.

Education isn't a guarantee.

i think more people will start programming, but the industry will also grow. maybe the bubble will pop. who knows.

just be better than everyone else (or a majority of people). its really hard to hire smart people.

if you want to be the "unicorn" type just remember this is a 15 - 20 year learning process. best advice i can give you is try to bootstap your own company. do the UI design, programming, and marketing. don't do it as a fun project. take it seriously. my failed startup had me take a summer off work making only a $3k doing contract work. starting your own company will force you to think about solving a problem, finding customers, educating them on your product, and building a product that is useful and easy for them to use.

These CS programs usually make you take the 'math' version of the theoretical courses but the students are too dumb to fully comprehend the material so they water down the material. It produces dumb asses like >>595420638 that think since they took discrete math 101 they know all the CS theory.

No, it just means they attended a shitty CS program like 90% of the schools out there.

If you are weak in math and attend one of those schools you have nothing to worry about with a CS degree
>>
i've done both, taken programming courses at community college and done a computer science degree at university.

the difference: if you are the type of person that's interested in how things work under the hood university will teach all the theory behind how things work,how compilers work,how code gets executed on processors,how to compare runtimes on two different algorithms when given massively huge datasets that would take years to run (math heavy).project managment,QA software testing procedures.university usually has less work load five 3hour classes per week,professors won't be on your case if you don't hand in an assignment or don't show up for a test cause that's just one less thing they have to mark..

if you are the type of person,reading...nobody got time for that,community college will teach you need to know to get an entry level job right now with a focus on hands on learning.if technology changes well you're on your own. you'll be in class 9-5 every day then go home to do home work all night and try to get a few hours of work on the weekend.instructors will be on your case if you don't hand something in.it felt kind of like high school

A real program would include hardcore math courses (with proofs) in:

>Set theory
>Algorithms & Complexity
>Advanced Algorithms
>Computability & Computational Complexity theory
>Advanced Computational Complexity theory
>Artificial Intelligence & Logic
>Advanced Artificial Intelligence & Logic

No, but if you walk into a java interview listing on your CV a proficiency in Java and you can't write a main method that means something.

OP. A CS degree is way more than just programming. But coding doesn't matter, it's all about problem solving. CSS and HTML aren't really programming languages. I mean, they are, but you should shy away from web languages if your goal is to be a programmer. You should pick an easy language to learn (Python probably) and start attacking complex logic problems. Learn to solve problems in the general case, not in a specific case. Learn the pros and cons of data structures, and learn OOP. Java is good for OOP, and good for most other things. But what you will learn as you go forward is that (most of the time) a language is just a tool to help you put your problem solving steps into implementation. Learning to PROGRAM and to solve problems is way more beneficial than learning Java for example. You will also learn that langauges have their advantages, but you can largely do many of the same tasks with practically all languages. A Computer Scientist can of course program, but also gets into the theory of actual computations. Such as, "is this problem solvable?" Youtube the halting problem, for example. It deals with the theory and application of computing things. At the end of the day, a CS degree should again give you more tools to solve problems, but if you can't solve problems in the first place, itll do nothing for you. Start looking at writing implementations for binary search for example, and what binary search actually is, and youll start to see what im talking about.

I would suggest going for the degree. As you're working towards it look for internships with small, but stable businesses. That kind of experience gets you ahead of everyone else (doing real coding rather than writing documentation), and when you get the degree you can get some great offers.

Experience: 1 CS internship, 3 physics, $120k job offer before graduating with a BS.

Man this requires a long answer, to make this shit short, you should find what kind of software you want to write and for whom.

I'm studying CS and CIS because I want to understand computer software programming and design, not be a programmer myself, I want to start a business and hire programmers to work for me. But I want to understand the fundamentals of programming so my employees don't screw me over with shit tier programming thinking I don't know better

Man a creative person is needed everywhere a creative man filling potholes will make a machine to fill them for him, if you want to work in the front end this could be interpreted in two ways, you want to be a front end programmer or a front end designer, if you only want to programm you could learn html and css, most of the front ends uh lets call them apis work with the same logic, most of them use xml instead of html but it is practically the same thing. If you want to design front ends you should start by studying something related to graphic design, then learn about usability and user experience, a front end developer has to be in contact with the world constantly there are thrends in this field too, you have to be always on the look out what is hype right now and apply it to your work, there is this thing for example that when you click on a website logo it sends you to the main page, this shit isn't specified anywhere it is just some thrend that caught up.

lel, a degree

A degree means nothing. If you don't program as a hobby you'll never make it. So just do it, google "C tutorial" and get started.

>>595409569
>It's just hard gettting started by yourself you know?
no it's not, it's the easiest fucking thing in the world. It's easier than getting started with knitting socks. It's easier than getting started with making grilled cheese sandwiches. The web is chock full of resources to get started. There's literally no valid excuse for not making it except being an unmotivated faggot.

I got my CS degree from a 4 year university 2 years ago. im making $93k a year in a city with a low cost of living, and i didn't get good grades, i graduated with a 2.98 GPA.
Also, going to a 4 year school pretty much guarantees you'll know more than people who learned on their own or got quick certs. I know "senior" programmers who don't know basic design principals i learned during school, because theres a lot of stuff you'd never learn on your own because you only learn what you need to get by.

So programming front ends is more of a solid problem solving, while design is more trending designs, user experience.
Okay.

What if I want to do both?
If I want to be a UI/UX designer would that be possible to a reasonable extent?

>>595436185
thats actually what most people with a masters in CS do in my country. i support that fully.

I think it's just specifically hard for me because for the past two years I've only taken care of my father.
Quit school and my job to do so, so I've been "out of the game" for some time. I guess it's my confidence that's lackluster, but I know I can do things if I really cared to. I appreciate the honesty though anon.

Agree.

I force myself to use switch statements sometime just to diversify my "vocabulary."

>>595436823
Well, personal taste, but C is simple enough, it does everything, it's not full of bullshit like C++, it's oddly still popular, and gigashitton of resources, and it's pretty much the granddaddy of every other language you might want to learn later, doesn't matter if it's ObjC, Java or PHP really.

>>595437582
Yeah but you know, there really isn't much to it, take an hour at your computer every once in a while and soon enough you start getting somewhere. And you don't need a degree or even any prior work experience if you have a finished project you made all by yourself to vouch for what you can do.

Sure you can be a one man army, As I said to design a not only usable(search for this word in software engeenering context) but beatiful graphical interface you have to know a bit about graphic design. Most of the time interfaces are done by a graphic designer that knows a bit about software rather than a programmer that knows about art. You can learn as much as you want just try to make one thing at a time. And get very specific about what you want if you want to work in gadgets start researching about where you would like to work find in stackoverflow.com what are the qualifications the need for their employees and learn that.

Who's peeking out from under a stairway
Calling a name that's lighter than air?
Who's bending down to give me a rainbow?
Everyone knows it's Windy
Who's tripping down the streets of the city
Smiling at everybody she sees?
Who's reaching out to capture a moment?
Everyone knows it's Windy
And Windy has stormy eyes
That flash at the sound of lies
And Windy has wings to fly
Above the clouds (Above the clouds)
Above the clouds (Above the clouds)

spend time studying/chilling/whatever in places with more traffic, not just the CS area of your school. unless you happen to look like orc or are awkward as fuck, you might catch the eye of a future exgirlfriend somewhere.

Dont fucking start with Java or C. Learn javascript, python, ruby, perl or some other high level language. Then once you are a decent fucking programmer, go back and learn c, java, whatever...

I'm not even going there with you, but it really is bad that STEM majors have a serious lack of girls.

gcc on debian. If you are in CS you are part of the problem.

ooh you're asking for the way to catch a unicorn... I'm afraid I have no knowledge of that

I only saw 2.. TWO! real cute girls in my major when i was in school. one super cool and smart but taken (fml). the other bitchy and kinda dumb. the rest were just ehh and not gf type. (not that pretty)
