Today we had so much comp-sci at school that it actually became distasteful. And this comes from someone who is considered to be a big enthusiast and hype about computers...

    Might want to consider Electrical/Computer Engineering at uni if you like computers but not compsci as such

    That's my field, though I also basically do coding, but it's for hardware systems and stuff. There's a lot of cool stuff going on in ECE (comp arch, low power designs, accelerators etc.)

    (I love compsci, just wanted hardware)

    @RememberMe no, I love comp-sci, but the students in my class were given an option: no breaks at ALL and come back home earlier or have normal breaks, and they chose the first option.

    It was jack shit.

    @OmerFlame lol. Fairly natural tbh, I would probably do that too. Work done earlier = better

    @RememberMe thing is, it was stuff that I already knew so I was bored without breaks.

    @OmerFlame fair enough. Yeah compsci in school is generally useless. You just need to suffer through it till you hit undergrad, from then on it really picks up.

    Compsci is not boring for those who don’t have extensive experience in the general computer logic field.

    But I started my learning process 6.5 years ago...

    @OmerFlame tbh there's value in structured learning. Even if you've been doing it for ages on your own, school will be a lot more systematic about it and will cover stuff you missed (like data structures, eh :p)

    @OmerFlame you sound unnecessarily defensive lol

    Chill man. It's natural to get worn tf out having to sit through lectures you already know. For the fourth time I had to sit through a HTML 101 lecture. Took all of 3 mins for me to zone out.

    Also, @RememberMe is right about no breaks. I'd have taken that too. Power through that shit and being free earlier is without a doubt better than having a few breaks

    @RememberMe I learned data structures and that is exactly what we are learning right now.

    They WILL teach me binary trees though, and that I will learn from them.
