And you just spent years of your life getting a degree in computer science. Or anything remotely useful. This makes my blood boil.
Not at you, but instead at our computer science programs. My company hires and trains a lot of people out of these programs. Of these freshly minted graduates, we have come to realize that while you can now write a compiler, and are now able to conceptualize many important algorithms all of which have already been solved you have almost no practical or useful experience. I am lucky to have Nick on my team. Nick was a winter graduate of an exceptional CS program.
He seemed to know so much more than most graduates, and I asked him: why? Most of what made Nick stand out from others is that he spent a great deal of time on his own trying to do practical things that used his learnings from college. He also worked at internships during college where he realized that most of what they were teaching him was abstract and useless. Nick is not normal I worry about him at times , but he just managed to get a small jump on his peers. I studied computer science at college back in before there was even a CS degree. It was pretty abstract then so abstract that my major was Econ.
What I have come to understand is that college teaches you concepts and, largely college teaches you to learn how to learn, not how to do. Nick is exceptional because he took the time and effort to learn stuff that was practical on his own. I am old now, and my son just got back from his freshman year at college holy crap, holy crap, holy crap, I am old. Fuck these college programs who tell you they are preparing you for anything.
