computer programming

Posted: Fri Mar 22, 2013 12:12 pm



I put this here because it has a similar thinking philosophy as math, and shares a few traits with science as well.

Are there are any other computer programming/computer science majors on this site? Or anybody else who is just learning it for funsies? I'm about to finish my first programming class and I love it. Still using bluej for now, looking forward to using eclipse/C++. What do the rest of you guys use?

I just got into FSU and am stuck deciding a major, but computer science is currently the one I picked (there is no undecided option). How is the math?

I taught myself Java in 8th grade. Taught myself C/C++ and various other languages over the years. I've contributed to some open-source projects, I run an open source project myself, done various projects regarding computer security, web design, and some other stuff.

You could say I enjoy the computer sciences.

I'm at Stanford doing CS, just finished learning eclipse/java. Programming is really fun when it isn't due the next day, I'm thinking about majoring in CS as well as music

It's great..

I started on a TI-83 my freshman year..then went to Java and ran my own Runescape private server for a while..then some Visual Basic..then Objective C (iPhone programming is fun)..now I'm taking more Java

Eclipse is too requiring for my computer to run it, I program in netbeans considering I like it more anyway. And I only know java, considering what I originally learned from was the fact that I'm in robotics at my school and that's what I do in it.
I've programmed some android apps for my personal uses and also some desktop apps.

Coding has actually been peaking my interest as of the last couple weeks and I got to poke around with Objective-C and Xcode last weekend on my flights to and from rehearsal for the first time. I'm following along with "Mac Programming for Absolute Beginners." The only issue is that the version of Xcode that I have has outdated the book(pdf)! So not everything works the way it should lol but I enjoy it nonetheless. It's a lot like drumming; It's either written correctly (clean diddles) or it doesn't work (unacceptable dirty diddles).

That is SO true haha you have no idea how many times last quarter I wanted to argue with my computer like "Mac, you're wrong" only to find out I would lose every time. It is very much right or wrong.

I've used TI Basic on my TInspire for some basic math programs (that I've used on the state EOCs) for formulae and stuff. The problem is it lost functionality from the TI-84. But I know a little Java. Mainly I've been writing math programs, mainly because they really help when you're learning.

I'm not really a fan of the Inspire..it isn't nearly as intuitive as the 83/84

It's pretty cool, the graphing interface is nice, and the geometry program is a nice addition. (in fact, I used the geometry program to figure out a theorem I missed on a quiz the other day) But most of the features I don't use regularly. Like, really, who's going to take notes on a calculator with an alphabetical, not qwerty, keyboard? I know someone who works for TI, and she said that they couldn't put a qwerty keyboard AND have it usable on standardized tests, just because they won't want you copying the questions into a text file.

At times I do wish I could get an 84 keyboard to use because it's a little more simple.

I'm doing a 3-2 program with my university, so I'll end up with two degrees after five years-engineering from one and computer science from the other. My focus is engineering and computer science is foreign to me. What exactly is it?

I hate Objective-C so much... as much as C++ and I fought, I thought we had a good thing going... until I switched to a Mac and learned Objective-C was the language of choice. In retrospect, I should have learned to transition over, but I picked up my old hobby of web development and never looked back.

I've been programming for almost 15 years in school and out in the field. If you can learn to live with the fact that you truly know absolutely nothing and how most technologies you learn in school may very well be obsolete by the time you get a real job, then it's definitely a very rewarding career option.

If anyone needs help with some code drop me a PM and I'd be more than happy to help.

I'm considering going into some kind of computer science in college. As the world becomes more computer-centered (it's amazing how far we've come...) there's going to be a demand for more programmers and IT people. It's becoming an important and lucrative field... I'm glad I'm able to get a head start on it. The internet is quite a resource.

Harvard released their entire CS-50 introduction to programming on itunes. all the lectures, full, with the 'help' lectures as well as all worksheets and handouts. It covers a whole lot, and its free. look it up!!!
