Four years have passed and I have NOTHING to show for it besides this moronic math degree and I can't even build useful applications. But wait! At least I can tell you about the traveling salesman problem! Cause that's so damn useful

IT'S OVER

      Let me guess, nepotism? If not then how don't you get where you were? I'm not trying to be smug or some jealous I'm actually curious how you guys do what you do.

    most of the great programmers i know stared coding in their teens or earlier. some even while being single digit aged.

    even the goods one become good because they spend their time programming.

    and then there's gays who think they can be good programmers just by attending a 4 year long certification racket.

    it's as absurd as a person thinking they can become fit by just watching fitness videos on youtube but without doing any workout or having any diet.

    I'm glad AI will be slowly chasing most of the fake money chasers out of the field.

    The only thing you need from a CS education is a lecture or two on time complexity and various useful data structures and algorithms. Then you should drop out and spend four years actually building software.

    Did you seriously expect that any work straight from college (low end) would let you in with passing knowledge of fricking academia?
    You need to do shit ton of grunt work before you can even think of being on a cushy job.

    OP, you need to learn about "competition", and "might makes right". Put these 2 together and you will realize that unless you are a master programmer, in the top 1% most skilled in the world, then you are worthless to these businesses.

    kek, you remind me of boomers that have been in the field for 20+ years doing one narrow tech stack and know a shitton about it but fall flat on their face doing fizzbuzz.

    you deserve everything that happened.

      KEK based, this was me in my interview too.
      the interviewer was a nice chinese older guy, he had a thick accent but I've gotten used to it from my chinese professors. He reminded me a lot of them so I instantly felt comfortable and didn't spill my shit.
      >"do you know what OOP is?" yep
      >"nice, can you explain what inheritance is?" yep
      >"are you going for a frontend or backend position?" backend sounds funner
      >"haha i recommend frontend for new guys, it's easier" *he then spent like 10 minutes explaining why backend is hard*
      >insert some other easy basic ass programming questions, like if I'm familiar with react
      >no leetcode in sight, not even a for loop, no code at all
      >"hmm... ok, i think that covers everything, do you have any questions"
      >*i don't, but i make something up on the spot*
      >umm... so which do you prefer, frontend or backend?
      >*he proceeds to spend like 25 minutes giving me his whole life story, education history, past jobs, etc. i just nod the whole time and make interested facial expressions. you could tell he liked talking about it*
      >"hmm ok, i think we're out of time, I'll tell them to move forward with you, have a nice day"
      >i smile and say thank you, likewise, etc. give him a firm nod (since you can't give a firm handshake through a videocall)
      and done, comfy job acquired. i do have a degree though and had to apply to a ton of places. I just happened to land somewhere that doesn't do the whole leetcode circus.

    You learn absolutely nothing useful in CS. You get the degree to prevent your resume from being automatically deleted for not having a degree listed. That's it.
    If you want to be a codemonkey (why?) then you build a portfolio.

    >ivy CS program
    the point of an ivy league is to build nepotistic relationships
    you should have went to a state college if you wanted to be an actual programmer
    unlike ivy schools, state colleges have to tailor their cs programs for the job market to make the degree worth it
    you can't even finish capstone without some type of real world programming experience
