I switched my major to computer programming from teaching English, because I am a masochist.
Here is my service announcement: After talking to programming friends, slowly learning C++, and dipping into a couple of other languages, you know what I learned?
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON FOR ME TO BE LEARNING CALCULUS. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COMPUTER PROGRAMMING, AT ALL.
I think the only reason computer science majors are required to take it is to try and make them quit. WHY they want people to quit the major I don’t know, but then there’s no other reasonable explanation for it.
All right. That is all.
