2005-Jan-02 Advice for Computer Science College Students
From The Joel on Software Translation Project
Original article: http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/CollegeAdvice.html
Most college students, fortunately, are brash enough never to bother asking their elders for advice, which, in the field of computer science, is a good thing, because their elders are apt to say goofy, antediluvian things like "the demand for keypunch operators will exceed 100,000,000 by the year 2010" and "lisp careers are really very hot right now."
I, too, have no idea what I'm talking about when I give advice to college students. But that's never stopped me from writing before.
