blazer258Its my minor right now, I took python last semester and am taking Java now. My professor is terrible though, makes it so much harder to learn. Our lectures are completely irrelevant from our programming assignments. I was thinking of switching minors but CS is going to be so useful later on and it looks good for getting a job I think. What classes have you taken?
C_DowdI'm currently an undergrad double majoring in EE and CS. At my school it only takes 35 additional credits to get a bachelors is CS from what is already required to get an EE major. Seeing as I'll be proficient in two heavily related fields it will definitely be worth the extra year of school to get that CS major. So far the only programing classes that I've actually taken in my program are 2 C++ courses, but I've self taught myself java to the point that I know more java than those two C++ classes ever taught me about C++. Next semester I'm taking a course for EE that's called "Micro Processors" that is pretty much a class that focuses on programing in assembly code for a couple different processors, which should be interesting.
SonOfAnderYeah took some assembly code stuff, working with switches in the processors themselves. Shit was brutal, I commend you for going EE. I decided early on to go with the software side of things haha.
C_DowdSounds like you were doing some micro coding. I did some of that in my digital logic class, we only spent roughly two weeks on it though so I hardly got to wrap my head around it haha.
For anyone curios about what micro code is here are some pictures
(Individual rows = clock cycles
Individual columns = switches)
did that make you nauseous?
If it didn't......get ready for it to.
blazer258I/m starting to pick some of my CS classes for next semester, how many of you guys took C++ and was it beneficial/ would you highly recommend it? I know its probably gonna be useful later on
Rparrpython is fucking me in the ass, but matlab was a joke two years ago. Thank god I am ChemE, because this shit drives me nuts
PDegI can't help but notice you're in WNY. I'm also a 3rd year CS major (at UB). Where you do you go?
