How important was your image in moving you forward in your endeavors/ambitions? I'm trying to do a lot of different things, and I'm curious to know what experienced people think.
Also, I am debating dropping out of college or changing my major to physics or business to use my time to do more of what I love to do, good at, and at an attempt to make it into a living. I'm good at development, just not feeling challenged in my current curriculum.
I thank you all, for your helping me. As this internet was a powerful tool in obtaining the knowledge that I know, more so than college has been. I go to an accredited University, but its not a Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, MIT, or Berkeley, and I've reached the conclusion that I am going to have to build my own network in order to grow. I could do it under the pressure of going to college or I can do it with full time. Just not sure what the best course of action is. Most people I go to college with are learning how to program at a trivial level.
If feel like I need to give back, and at the same time make a living rather than rote learn useless information or doing random mundane tasks that are not constructive.
Again, thank you active/genius users who use this website. Many of your usernames escape me, but I believe you know who you are if you have responded to my threads.
It happened a year ago. It was a 6 months course on mobile app development. The guy was our iOS teacher.
He's young and we had a good time chatting during breaks. I wasn't trying to "get a contact" because I didn't yet understand how important they are.
Then last october I mail him asking if he needs help with anything (hoping to get stuff for my CV) and it turns out his company was looking for python programmers. Really lucky as I said.
