devTea261331yFocus, and start early
I don't think there was anything I could say to improve.
I went to the public university but had little money to buy proper food to focus at class. Maybe push my dad for higher budgets...?
I wished I hadn't have the need to do that....
lastNick4711yFocus on social skills because they will become more important than your tech skills later when applying for leadership positions
What I'd definitely change:
- apply for a lesser renowned but nearby university instead of struggling at an "elite" uni because you either spend all your "free" time commuting or need 2-3 jobs to pay rent, food, etc. From a different perspective its not that bad - the gained experience as a developer helped me more than the actual degree.
- attend to more business oriented courses.
- more networking.
