    Talking Computer Science

    Hello my fellow Ubuntu brothers and sisters, i just registered for college and im going to take computer science. I just want to know if anyone has majored in computer science and or programming and if you could give me any advise as to what i should expect or not expect. I would one day love to work for ubuntu or linux as a dev and would like to know what i would need to do or major in so i can join the Ubuntu-Linux workforce.

    Don't expect CS to be programming; there's much more.

    Also, check out this list:

    Re: Computer Science

    Please don't feel discouraged by the previous comments. Studying Computer Science is a wonderful experience.

    There's so many careers you can choose from. For example: IT support, Web development, Software development, etc. Also there are more opportunities as you gain experience and seniority.

    The good news is you can go the way you want. The bad news (not that bad) is that you also will be prepared to be competent on the others areas, so you will have to be patient, and keep your mind open and learn all you can.

    I wish you the best of lucks!!
    Regards.
