29 [M4F/T] London, Ontario/Anywhere LF a gaming friend and possible relationship

2020.09.24 19:00 NightDweller 29 [M4F/T] London, Ontario/Anywhere LF a gaming friend and possible relationship

Hi, quite sick of spending my time alone, would really like to find someone to spend time with on a daily basis. Preferably in voice chat while we play games. I'm currently looking for a Spelunky, Magicka, Risk of Rain, Stardew Valley, Terraria, Don't Starve Together buddy. I also wouldn't be oppose to buying Vegante, Fall Guys, and Risk of Rain 2 if we enjoy each other's company quite a bit.
Personality wise I'm looking for someone who is nice, easy going, and caring. Who doesn't take things and life too seriously. Who is more prone to be the decision maker in a relationship. Who is active and willing to let me tag along in swimming and working out. I'm thinking of buying an e-bike to cruise around town with. If you like watching movies/TV shows and cuddling that would be great too. I would like to find someone to take me out of my bubble occasionally as I tend to be a very stagnate person. Someone who is more of a submissive type in the bedroom. I'm open to long distance but must be willing to travel eventually.
Physically, I naturally gravitate towards petite women(and men who are androgynous). I don't care what you identify(MtF, Male Trap, CIS Woman) as, just as long as we have a genuine attraction towards each other. I'm not attracted to masculinity at all.
About me:
  • Caucasian, 5'11": I am obese and would like to change that with swimming and diet
  • No kids/never married: I don't want any kids in life
  • GAD: I have nervous and anxiety issues but am not really shy per se
  • Introvert: I like my solitude but some times being alone gets to me
  • Open-minded: I like to learn and explore things that are normally outside my comfort-zone
  • Day-to-day type: I try to live in the present as much as I can
  • Homebody: I'd rather stay in and watch Netflix
  • Nocturnal: I naturally gravitate towards night time
  • French: I'm French-Canadian. My extended family is from Quebec/Montreal/Ottawa area but I was born in New Brunswick
  • Agnostic: pretty self explanatory
  • 420 Friendly: I don't smoke anymore but did in high school excessively
  • Video Games: My main hobby. I love playing all types of different games
  • Anime: Have watched quite a few anime in my past. I wouldn't call myself a weeb or anything though
  • Psychological Horror: Like it a lot but much more enjoyable with someone
  • Animal lover: My cat is the love of my life. Helps me deal with my GAD at times and loves affection
If you're thinking of messaging me please...
  • Do not send me a chat message. PM me instead
  • Be available to message for a little bit when messaging. Don't just send me a message and reply 12 hours later
  • Be a gamer and willing to voice chat(eventually). My post is about finding someone I can bond and do activities with
  • Write a little bit about yourself. It doesn't have to be a novel. Don't just say hi and expect me to carry the conversation
  • Don't just reply with one sentence and leave it to me to try and continue the conversation. I'm just going to assume you aren't interested

2020.09.24 18:59 iisamti I don't know how to come out

So I've just recently found the language that fits my gender identity and that's demigirl. I thought before that I was gender fluid or gender queer but this makes the most sense to me. For one thing I'd like to officially start using both she/her AND he/him pronouns, since this is something that im used to. When I did identify as cis, people would still constantly call me he/him, or sir or whatever because I naturally look very androgynous. There were times when I would say out loud things like "I'm a girl why'd they call me he, I'm not a he", but really that was similar to when people would call me gay and I would insist that I was straight (I'm queer) . Like when I denied ig it was really just for show, secretly I've always love being to referred to as he/him. I love when people are unable to tell what my gender by looking at me or speaking to me. I love when my sister calls me bro, or when my friends call me dude or boi. Though don't get me wrong, I feel no connection to being a man. I feel like I have a sliver of connectivity with being a woman. But it's really only a sliver. Like I like to dress up and be hyper femme a lot of the time. I relate to being a bad bitch. And carrying myself "like a woman". However, first off that's not all the time, and secondly that's about as far as it goes. I love my body (I'm Afab) because I think it's naturally very androgynous. I have smaller breasts that sometimes is show off and sometimes I very easily cover them to look a bit more flat chested and masculine/androgynous. My body's build and frame can really go either way. It's like, I feel connected somewhat to being a woman, but heavily with just being a being that transcends gender.
When it comes to dysphoria, I don't experience any with my physical appearance, because like I said I feel like my build already perfectly fits the way I feel about my gender. However I do feel dysphoric about the fact that I get my period. I knew from very young that yes I want to be a parent, but I don't want to get pregnant. I literally remember the playground talk in elementary school, I always said I wanted to adopt my children, before I even knew what a period was. And then once I did learn what it was I dreaded it. I didn't get my first one until I was 14 and up until it came I was proud of the fact that I hadn't gotten one. I had hoped that it would never come. I'm a person who knows a LOT about pregnancy, after aiding many women through theirs, and reading several books on it and watching several informative documentaries. I know, and I have known for a while that this is not for me. Sure it's a beautiful thing and all but it's simply not for me. I feel like just because I have a uterus there is this expectation for me to get pregnant and that seems very unfair. Every time I get my period, ever since the first time I got it, I hate it and I try my best to hide fromy self and from others that im even on it. I started off using pads but as soon as I could I would steal tampons from the houses of older women so I could use those and not have to look down every time I pee to see blood. Then I moved on from those to menstrual cups, because you don't have to change those for 12 hours at a time and there's no string to remind you you're on your period. Then I moved from that to a soft disc, because you can have sex with those and just completely forget about the fact that you're on your period (for 12 hrs at a time) these are my ways of coping but I would really rather just not have a uterus at all. The whole point in a period is so that your body can prepare for pregnancy, which I don't want and I've always known I don't want. So yeah there's that.
Also, I love my vagina I really do. But sometimes I really wish I had a penis too. Its weird (or maybe it's not) but I always just imagine myself with one. I lounge in bed naked a lot and something I imagine having a penis tucked between my legs while watching Netflix. Or I envy that people with penises can pee standing up. After strap on sex I a lot of the time don't take the strap off for an extended period of time because I just feel so comfortable with something being there. It makes me feel so myself looking in the mirror and having a huge penis lol. I looked into it and I saw that packers are a thing. There are ones that you can pee with and have sex with and everything and I want itttt. I wouldn't wear it all the time just when I feel like it, bc like I said I like my vagina aswell. Actually I love my vagina.
Anyway, these are the things I feel, but the thing is, I'm not sure how to tell my family for one. On top of that, I have a large growing audience as I am an aspiring influencer and artist. I'm not one to care about other people's opinions, yet I'm so apprehensive about what type of response I'll get. Does anyone relate to these feelings? Have any insight or advice?

2020.09.22 22:36 coolcastform Data Scientist/Engineers di r/italy lavorate/avete lavorato a qualche progetto che vi ha fatto pensare "quello che sto facendo non mi sembra al 100% eticamente corretto"?

Una volta uno mi disse che era contento di come al supermercato l'esposizione della linea dei prodotti x venisse fatta in quel modo, perché ci aveva lavorato lui.
Ora ho visto "the social dilemma" su Netflix e praticamente è lo stesso concetto all'ennesima potenza. Non ti invogliano a comprare il pacco di merendine y, ma a votare x, odiare z, etc. Oramai c'è una fetta dell'utenza di ogni social network che ha in testa il bollino "MANIPOLABILE"...
Quindi la domanda è questa. Avete lavorato ad un progetto che vi ha fatto pensare di stare facendo una cosa sbagliata?

2020.09.21 14:52 QMetry_test DevOps, Continuous Delivery and Continuous Testing in the Healthcare Sector

The DevOps paradigm unifies development and operation processes to aid software development. The main benefit of DevOps is that it breaks traditional silos and lets enterprises create or improve products at a faster pace than traditional methods.
This is not mere theory. Digital native companies like Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Adobe, Google have long been using DevOps to automate and accelerate their deployment pipeline with quantifiable technical and business benefits.
While the advantages of DevOps are fairly commonplace for enterprises, DevOps and the CI/CD pipeline are increasingly relevant to the modern healthcare landscape which has a specific set of challenges:

1. Regulatory compliance/security

GDPR was introduced in 2018 and as a result, personal consumer data has become more sacred and regulated than ever. Many of the key requirements of regulatory bodies mandate restricted access to data to the minimal requirement, ensuring transparency in data management, security and customer’s final authority on the data or the “right to be forgotten”. Additionally, FDA 21 CFR Part 11 is a key compliance challenge for the healthcare, pharma and medical device industries. It sets out norms for companies that use electronic quality records and digital signatures to meet FDA regulations.

2. Faster time to market

Innovation in healthcare faces the additional challenges of faster go-to-market. This is mainly because of the stringent regulatory checks, no or little digitalization, lack of centralized data that can be tracked across locations.
DevOps holds the answer to many of these ‘speed with quality’ challenges. With a continuous delivery model in place, an in-sprint automation is enabled. This results in faster deployment of high-quality software ensuring safety and reliability.
Automated infrastructure and testing allow for faster releases, thus improving customer service time and experience.

3. Big Data projects

Healthcare thrives on data and operators are increasingly looking to speed up their big data project deployments. Patient data grows exponentially over time and these projects have several data sources from medical devices, pharmacies, lab reports, EHRs, wearables to insurance claims. To streamline, optimize and generate maximum value and insights from this data is one of the biggest challenges that companies face today.
What makes it even more challenging is a divide between the analysts, developers and testers in healthcare companies that follow the traditional SDLC approach. It slows down productivity and impacts the competitive advantage that insights of large data sets can reveal.
What companies need is a modern, un-siloed approach where teams collaborate, share information easily and test earlier in the development cycle.

How DevOps and Continuous Testing in Healthcare help accelerate innovation

DevOps in healthcare provides an opportunity to make the most of big data projects as opposed to traditional SDLC. It brings operational efficiencies, facilitates speed with better quality to gain the maximum value from this data. Additionally, using the right tools that enable easy integration between systems, better visualization and reporting capabilities lead to significant gains in transparency and productivity.
DevOps has the answer to many of its challenges with the emphasis on performance and security, constant monitoring of infrastructure, automation of repetitive tasks, faster deployment and enhanced collaboration.

2020.09.21 07:52 OutsideFunny Unpopular opinion: I don't like heterosexual people.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I totally respect the HCWM (Hetero, Cis, White, Male) community and all. I'm all for equal rights no matter if you're a cisman, a ciswoman, a hetero, an alien or whatever, you know? But het people are so fucking annoying. I mean, I get it, you think you're a fucking guy who fucks women, shut up about it already. Every time I'm hanging out with my cishet man friend, it's always "I'm such a manly man" this and "man I love tits that". I really wish they would shut up for once instead of making their entire personality the fact that they're straight.
Not only that but the language policing is so annoying too. They had the audacity to call me a "heterophobe" for simply saying that het people are disgusting. Sure, I support your rights, but only if you don't come near me or push your agenda on me.
And what is up with hets indoctrinating children? Everywhere I go, I see het people in public. Every single Netflix show has to have one useless heterosexual person with no relation to the plot, with their only personality being that they're straight. And in children's media too! Children shouldn't see stuff like this. I get that it's done for "inclusiveness" and "diversity" but it's getting to be too much at this point.
Again, I completely respect them, I even have a couple of heterosexual cismen as friends. But I just wish they would accomodate ME, and instead of being themselves and expressing themselves however they like, I was kinda hoping they could do what I want them to do, to make MY life more comfy and nice uwu.
That's it really, sorry for the rant. I can already see all the angry SJW replies I'm gonna get for not adhering to the Het agenda, but I don't care. I'm gonna speak my mind, no matter how much of an ass it makes me sound like.

2020.09.20 21:55 chasecrosswa 31[M4F]Seattle - Dom ISO for his Opposite-Yet-Equal Cis-Female Sub partner

I'd like to preface my post by saying that I do not intend to physically meet up with anyone until we've both determined we've successfully social distanced from people for, at least, two weeks. I also would like to this moment to encourage everyone else to also practice social responsibility by staying home and avoid physical encounters. This pandemic is STILL a serious issue and if you want to protect your loved ones, the best thing to do is avoid all risks of being a carrier. Trust me, I know what's it's like to be overwhelmingly lonely -and horny- but health takes precedence.
With that said...
Hello, everyone. My name is Chase. I’m a Dominant/Master who is 31yo, an INFJ, transplant from California, feminist, proud nerd, photography and astronomy enthusiast. I spend most of my free time exploring the Seattle area, exploring new restaurants, and scouting out places to photograph. Alternatively, I can also be a homebody so I do love my days-ins. I can be an adult when the situation calls for it, but honestly, I feel no shame whatsoever in laughing at old memes or dumb youtube videos.
So, I'm seeking Someone who is my opposite and yet my equal. My ideal partner is someone whom I can teach to be the ideal submissive. On the other hand, she is also someone whom can teach me to be the ideal dom. Perfection is by no means a pretense of mine and I would expect us both to learn from our mistakes as well as our successes. Trust, comfort and safety take precedent overall else. I feel that if I, for whatever reason, fail to adequately provide even one of the three, I fail as a partner and dominant. This is also why I also value open-communication
What I’m looking for: I’m primarily seeking a mutually nurturing and fulfilling long-term, monogamous, in-person relationship with a D/S dynamic with someone who identifies as cis-female. I strongly prefer someone who is around my age or younger and someone who is petite to athletic. I will consider every message I receive, though. Personality-wise, my partner would be extroverted, spontaneous, passionate, confident and energetic. She craves adventure, excitement and is likely to smile and laugh. Think Daisy Ridley offset (God, I adore her!)
I have a great admiration for women who are strong, independent, knows exactly what she wants from herself and her partner(s), won’t let inhibition get the better of them and are able to fully embrace their kinks and desires. With that in mind, I have a desire for a sub who is physically-affectionate, service-orientated, slutty, obedient, sexually-inclined and intuitive on how to please her simaster. So, I'm in search for someone who proudly claims ownership of her own life and craves for the release of submission knowing that it won’t compromise her integrity as a strong individual. Basically, my ideal partner is a strong submissive.
I’m exceptionally turned on by objectification so my ideal partner would be someone who is either tolerant of being treated like a toy or turned on by it. Otherwise, I greatly appreciate child-like innocence. In other words: a sub whose spectrum can range from Little to Slave When things get hot, intense and intimate, I would expect my partner to behave like the submissive that she is. She would also be my “sex slave”, “cock whore”, “grope toy”, “cum slut” or any other arbitrarily demeaning noun I can assign to her. She’ll be someone whom I’ll teach, tie up, protect, spank, reward, collar and leash among other things. I’d love someone who will cook for me wearing nothing but an apron and butt plug. Or will willingly wear a harness underneath her clothing for the whole day when I want her to. Or will immediately drop her panties to the floor when I order her to. And so on, and so on, and so on.
And when it’s all said and done… She can gently and safely step down from sub-space so that she can spend time with me doing other things. Vanilla things. This includes going out to do things like exploring, checking festivals, hiking, watching films, checking out new restaurants or going on roadtrips. Alternatively, we could have days-ins where we can enjoy playing Mario Kart/Smash Bros, binge-watching Netflix/movies or cuddling. Preferably while watching Marvel or Disney films. Honestly: I've got a giant weakness for them.
What I have to offer: Affection, comfort, intellectual stimulation, emotional security, loyalty, total safety, private play space, check-ins and mandatory post-play aftercare, unconditional nerdy trivia and mean-ass steak and the best gluten-free pho you’ve ever had!
If you’re wondering about my end goal, it’s this: This isn’t strictly a kink-relationship. I also want it to be a vanilla one. If the stars-align and we match up perfectly, minds and hearts, I’ll undoubtedly would like to have a future with you. Bring you home to meet my mom; visit Disneyland together; possibly get married; have children. But for now, one step at a time, right?
In any event, I sincerely thank you all for taking the time to visit and read through my ad. I apologize if it seems long-winded or overly-demanding. I'm just over-elaborate more than anything, heh. But if I somehow managed to entice you and appeal to your interests, feel free to message me! Alternatively, if you know someone who may match my interests and vice versa, please pass along my ad.
Either way, I hope you all have a wonderful week!

A /cscareerquestions College Survival Guide

With our final school year beginning, we were reflecting on how lost and confused we were when we first started university. We made a lot of mistakes (still am) along the way, but we’re in a much better place after learning from them and constantly putting ourselves out there. In hopes of shining some light and helping others, we decided to make a comprehensive guide for university students – based on our knowledge/experiences - on how to start your successful CS Career (or gain the wisdom to avoid CS altogether, more on this later).
rishiss Background: I am a 4th year student at UC Irvine majoring in Software Engineering. I am an incoming Software Engineer at a F100 company (received return offer after interning this summer). Before that, I interned at an R & D center for space, a small cloud company, and a small IT company. I have a 3.65 GPA, won a few awards at startup competitions/hackathons, and remain pretty active in my schools CS organizations.
chaitu65c Background: I’m a 4th year student at UC Irvine majoring in Computer Science. I’m currently a SWE Intern at a Unicorn and just wrapped up my 2nd internship at a Live Streaming Company(you can most likely tell who they are if you browse my history LOL). Before this, I interned at my school’s IT department, did research under a professor, and worked on a few small startups that other UCI students were building. I have a 3.3 GPA, won some awards along rishiss and was pretty active in my school’s CS clubs.
Disclaimer: “But rishiss/ and chaitu65c, you don’t work at a Big N, go to a target CS school, why should I take your advice?” You’re absolutely right; we are, by no means, ‘up there’ like some other folks on this sub. And, you don’t have to take our advice! Simply close this tab and do whatever else you want 😊. Our intent is to guide and prepare uni students for a CS career they enjoy, not work at Big N or get the highest TC. Life is much more than a dick-measuring contest, and the earlier you learn that the better.
We have also created a guide with our own personal advice/stories

Please, take this advice with a grain of salt. we’re not Tony Robinson or Tim Apple, we’re just two random reddit users.

Table of Contents:

This guide is divided into the following sections:

Is CS Right For Me?

The way we see it, there’s 3 types of people pursuing CS.
  1. Those who know CS isn’t for them – They’re in it for the money, to appease their parents, for a minorequirement, some external factor. They hated programming while taking the introductory CS course and just try to get done with their class/degree ASAP.
Advice: The majority of people who fall under this usually burn out quickly, as they aren’t motivated enough to learn the material and to apply themselves. This usually leads to them cheating and getting kicked out of their major, minor, or university altogether. Even if you manage to earn a degree, we've seen a large number of these folks endure a 'pre-mature' mid-life crisis or simply get fired from their jobs. Before you even start this major, you should definitely understand that this isn’t going to be easy, and you do have to put in a lot of effort to succeed. If this isn’t your cup of tea, definitely look into switching into another major you like.
Some folks are really passionate about technology, but don't want to pursue an entire Computer Science major or see themselves as Software Engineers. That's completely ok! Try looking into related majors or minors. We know many students who switched from CS to majors like Informatics, Business Information Management, and Economics and are thriving in tech-related roles like Data Analytics, Product Management, UI/UX Design, and Technical Recruiting. CS is not (and should not be) for everyone, and there is no shame in having the wisdom quit and move on.
  1. Those who don’t know if CS is for them – Where most of the CS community is IMO. These folks (like me, rishiss) are riddled with something called Imposter Syndrome: “the constant feeling of not being good enough or knowing enough to do your job well.”
Advice: For students, really take the time to learn and be open to anything you go through. Try sticking it out until you've taken a Data Structures course, one of the harder, more important courses out there. If you're not understanding the material or just aren't having fun with it, it’s definitely ok to switch majors/careers. Otherwise, CS just might be the career for you! Give it your best shot!
Admittedly, it's hard to provide stronger insight to overcoming Imposter Syndrome, as I am afflicted by it as well. For me, my IS derives from constantly comparing myself to others and confusing inexperience with incompetency. As such, I continue to work and focus on myself and take baby steps towards smaller goals I set out for myself. Knowing that I've put the effort to improve myself by just 1% everyday has made me a lot more confident.
  1. Those who know for a fact CS is for them – The diamonds in the rough. Learning and practicing CS material gives them a euphoric high.
Advice: Broaden your scope and learn new areas of CS! Who knows, you might find another new field that you really want to work in. Other than that, definitely make new friends regardless of whether they’re a CS major or not. Even try pursuing other hobbies like weightlifting, reading, dancing, or even public speaking. Don't limit yourself!

We recommend not taking more than 3-4 classes in your first quartesemester, as you shouold keep an ample amount of time to go to professional/social events, make new friends and hang out with them, and pursue your interests.
We've seen a lot of freshmen (and upperclassmen) CS folks get cooped up in their dorm rooms playing video games and watching TV. We understand that these two are a passion for many, but please be cautious to not get consumed by them.
You have the privilege of pursuing higher education, making valuable connections/memories, and setting up your CS career in the trajectory you want. This year is the best year to take advantage of all that university has to offer; make the most of it.
One of the best ways to get involved in your school’s/region’s CS community is by joining clubs like ACM and WICS and participating in hackathons (see ‘Hackathon’ section below). Try pursuing internships and positions in these organizations and events as well!
One, major issue we see with freshmen (even upperclassmen) is their ignorance on all the avenues available in the CS Industry. So we’ve tried to narrow it down (not exhaustive).
  1. Cyber Security Engineer
  2. Front-End Web Developer
  3. Backend Web Developer
  4. UI/UX Designer
  5. DevOps/Cloud/Site-Reliability Engineers
  6. Mobile Engineer
  7. QA Engineer
  8. Product Manager
  9. Data Scientist (Machine Learning/AI)
  10. Embedded Software Engineer
  11. Systems Administrator
  12. Database Administrator (The Wizards)
  13. Networking Engineer
  14. Hardware Engineer
  15. OS Developer
  16. Video Game Developer
  17. Solutions Architect/Sales EngineeTechnical Account Manager
As a freshman, definitely take the time and see if you can picture yourself doing any of the listed fields. You should open yourself to all facets of CS and not just the “hot field” like Data Science and Machine Learning. Choosing a field because it’s “exciting” will usually lead to bad results as usually, other people are thinking just like you and will lead to over-saturation.
Our recommendation is to select the top 5 fields that have piqued your interest and experiment with the field. For example, if you are interested in Mobile App Development, try learning how to build an Android app from the ground up. A simple weather app or alarm clock is completely suitable for a first project/prototype. This lets you understand what skills you would need for this field and can serve as a forecast as to what your career would look like.
You should definitely look for an internship. Ignore the people that tell you to wait until you’re a junior, as it’s going to be very hard to get an internship if you don’t have any experience. Common places that most students don’t realize are available are usually IT departments at your school and even research with professors. Researching is highly recommended as you can definitely learn more about a field you can be interested in and if you’re interested in graduate school, that’s going to be a letter of recommendation that you can ask for.
If you’re considered a minority in Computer Science, look into first and second year internship programs as they’re meant to help you succeed. Here’s some programs that come to mind:
Google STEP
Microsoft Explore
Amazon Future Engineer
Uber STARInternhip
Facebook University
Another way to get internships is to research into smaller companies in your area. If the company is very small (<100 employees), consider reaching out to the CEO on LinkedIn. They might be able to help you! Also, take advantage of university recruiting websites like Handshake to see companies that directly hire from your school. More info on how to get an internship in the ‘Searching for an Internship’ section.

Sophomore Year

Now that you have basic programming knowledge, create your own website or GitHub account and start contributing to them with small personal projects. Nobody expects you to make a full-stack MERN project hosted and scaled on AWS at this stage. Focus instead on clean code, learning a framework or two on a language you like, and creating a small, robust feature. Grow from there!
If you weren’t able to find an internship/research opportunity as a freshman, community involvement, projects, and hackathons become especially important, as they are a great way to make you stand out on your resume and to recruiters when you reapply. As you brush up on your skills, apply again, and try your luck out.

Data Structures and Algorithms

In addition, you are most likely to take a Data Structures and Algorithms course this year. Make sure you are focusing on this class and writing good notes; you will need this knowledge when interviewing for internships and full-time jobs in the near future. Here is a link to our DS and A course (in C++) for reference

Junior Year

As a junior, companies are more willing to hire you for an internship, as they are likely to convert you into a full-time employee after graduating. This transition process is much easier than interviewing, and they'll usually offer you a higher compensation package if they want to convert you to a full-time employee. As you now should have knowledge of Data Structures and Algorithms, we highly recommend looking into coding interview prep sites like LeetCode and HackerRank or purchasing a prep book like CTCI or EPI (advanced).
Continue to attend hackathons, remain active in clubs/organizations, and grow your portfolio.
Classes will be much harder; expect the time for completing projects to double and the content covered to be much more difficult. We recommend taking no more than 2-3 upper-division CS courses and balancing your load with 1-2 GE classes. You should not be taking more than 16 units (assuming 4 units per course).
Start to get an idea of what field in CS you would like to pursue. Research what it takes to be successful in that field. You can do so by looking up job postings with that title on LinkedIn and looking at the requested skill set or take a look at Roadmap.sh. If you want to learn more about a related skill set and your school doesn't offer a course, consider picking up a class on udemy.com.

Senior Year

Focus heavily on your senior capstone, project classes, etc. as they're the last thing you can put on your resume before applying for full time. By now, you should have at least 3 polished, working projects on your GitHub that you can easily talk about with your recruiter. Preferably, they're aligned with the CS field you wish to enter.
If you were able to get a return offer from an internship, congrats! However, don’t immediately sign the offer. Once you have an offer, you should still try to interview at companies that you’re interested in by the deadline of the time to accept the offer. A good way of doing this is to reach out to a University recruiter for that company and explain the deadline you have. Usually, they’re really helpful and can potentially help skip interviews that you were supposed to do!
In addition, if your friends were able to intern at places you’re interested in, definitely ask for a referral or to send your resume to their recruiter. This usually reduces the risk of being ghosted by that company and increases your chances of getting hired!
Once you finally sign, definitely take the time to relax and enjoy. Just make sure you pass your classes and stay out of trouble

Classes:

What Classes should I take?

Should Already be Required:

Must Take:

Good to Have

How do I succeed in these classes?

rishiss: You’re more than likely coughing up hundreds, if not thousands, to attend university. It makes no sense to not take full advantage of the course and course staff.
The way I take notes: I learn from examples; I want to enter my code into the IDE to see what happens. I do a three way split; Google Docs on the left, IDE on top right and terminal (to compile, see output, make new file, etc) on bottom left. I note down the date and topic of the lecture and write questions I have in the comments on Docs. I make sure to highlight important information and possible test questions. I even share the link with friends!

In the quarters where I followed the steps above, I never got a grade lower than an A-.

Dealing with Bad Professors

During your time in college, you’re likely going to have at least one bad professor that might make it worse if you have to go to class. If that’s the case, it’s definitely fine to not go to class (as long as it’s not mandatory). However, if you do decide not to go, you must make sure you learn the material, so you won’t be behind on the coursework and studying for tests. In addition, you should be doing something productive on the side. If you don’t go to class and spend the time watching Netflix or playing video games, you’re losing time that you can spend on something that might be fun and can help you in the long run.

You can take Graduate Courses!?

chaitu65c: A highly underutilized set of courses you can take would be graduate courses. Graduate courses are usually very specialized in certain fields. If you were able to take all the undergraduate courses you wanted and still have spare classes to fill out, I'd recommend researching into taking Graduate courses! They’re a good way to build out your specialization and learn new, cool stuff! In addition, if you’re looking for classes to reach the required number of CS courses needed, your CS department might allow you to make the course count towards your degree!

Projects

They're super important.

How do I succeed in class projects?

Personal Projects and your CS Career

rishiss: Projects are your saving grace, especially if you are lacking work experience. They show technical aptitude, willingness to take initiative, and leadership. I’ve seen people with only projects on their resume get positions at the Big N. Projects are good ways to expand your knowledge of CS as the possibilities are endless! It is best to have a variety of projects dealing with a variety of technologies. As such, you can open yourself up to more positions and have more talking points during the interview.
I tend to edit the ‘Project’ Section of my resume with relevant projects and technologies. For instance, if I made a full stack web application and applied to a DevOps organization, I would highlight my AWS, CI/CD, and Terraform experiences more than my React/Node js work.
It is recommend the project is about something that motivates you and are passionate about e.g. video games, movies, books, sports, etc., as it is very easy to give up half way due to stress or lack of motivation/interest.
Like anything else in Computer Science, projects require you to break it down into smaller pieces. Start with the end in mind and draw out the intended architecture/functionalities. Start with what you know and research on the parts you don't know after that. You will be using these skills often in industry for any project/feature planning.
Spending 15-30 minutes a day is all you need to make a successful personal project. Don't make excuses and get coding!

Open Source Contributions

If you’ve ever noticed popular github repositories such as torvalds/linux, these are repositories where people from all over the world can report issues with it and someone can fix it. If you are able to make a contribution to a huge open source repository, it looks really good on your resume.

Hackathons

What are Hackathons?

Hackathons are large scale coding events, where students from around the area come together and collaborate - usually in teams of 4 (but you can go solo or with a partner!) - to build some software. Companies like Amazon, Northrop Grumman, Google, and Twilio sponsor awards related to best use of their technology. After 24 - 48 hours of intensive coding, participants submit their projects, whether it be an Android video game, Chrome Extension, productivity web app, etc. Submissions are shared with the companies and other hackathon organizers, where they select the best projects and award teams with swag like keyboards, gift cards, and even summer internships at their company.
Participating in hackathons are one of the best ways to hone your coding skills, network with companies and other students, and get free comfy T-shirts. It is also one of the best ways to gain industry knowledge, as representatives from these companies and hackathon organizers create numerous workshops and answer any questions you may have. Winning awards at these hackathons are also great resume boosters and talking points during interviews.
The biggest hackathon organizer is Major League Hacking. Visit their website, and you can see all the hackathons (remote or local) they are partnered with. Make to be on the lookout for application release dates from the hackathons and apply early.
With Covid, you may miss out on the free goodies and the in-person networking with students and professionals. However, most hackathons are accepting many more applicants due to it being virtual/remote this year.

What Should I Do At Hacakathons?

Take advantage of the resources available at hackathons. You’re attending a mini CS conference and should be, besides coding, networking with professionals, learning about the different companies, attending workshops, asking technical/non-technical questions to mentors, and getting as much free shit as you can get. Besides T-Shirts, companies give out vouchers to their services, applications to their internship and full-time positions, pillows, notebooks, water bottles, sweaters, and even backpacks.
If you’re looking to get an award, judges at hackathons care a lot about the pitch and the idea rather than the actual execution of the idea. Having an idea beforehand is also helpful, so you can spend your time focusing on the MVP.

Friends and Networking

chaitu65c: I think it’s definitely useful if you have two different friend groups: One dedicated to career and Non-Career Group.
Career Group - When making a friend group dedicated to career, try to be the dumbest person in the group, you’re definitely going to learn a lot from them as you soak up knowledge! Best ways of meeting friends who are career-driven can be through major specific orientation (actually how I met rishiss), courses, major related clubs, etc.
Non-Career Group - While having a group that motivates you for your career is important, it’s also important to have another friend group that can help you relax and to enjoy your time! A really good way to find these friend groups can be anywhere from your hall to General Education courses, social clubs like Circle K, fraternities/ sororities(if that’s your cup of tea) and others!
This is what has worked for us; no need to follow this exact format.

Resume

rishiss: Here are the few take-aways on writing a resume that gets through the ATS.

Searching for Internships

Searching for internships in CS is really different and harder from searching for internships in other professions. CS internship interview processes are often longer and much more technical on what you have learned as a CS major. We've prepped 2-3 months beforehand on CS concepts, whiteboarding, etc.

Timeline

This timeline primarily focuses on large, non-government/defense companies or competitive startups. This also assume you are applying for a summer internship.
August - September: Applications are opened to the public. Make sure to look out for positions and apply early, as most companies admit students on a rolling basis. A site that we used often is Apply.fyi. After applying, you may receive an automated (< 48 hours) invitation to complete an Online Assessment, consisting of multiple choice and/or coding questions about Data Structures, Algorithms, and Run Time Complexity. You will have usually 1-2 weeks to complete the assessment. Please that you may be rejected if you are not able to pass 90% of the questions on the assessment: Please also note that you may be instantly rejected due to things out of your control like years of experience, cancellation of internship, internal corporate issues, and more. Don't take rejections too seriously; just keep applying!
October - November: After passing the resume screen and the OA, you will be contacted by the company's recruiter for a phone screen. During the screen, you will probably be asked a few confirmation questions about your resume, sponsorship, years of experience with X, etc. and minor behavioral questions like what made you apply for this position, what are you pursuing outside of class, etc. You may also receive questions about your CS fundamentals e.g. what is a hashtable, whats the difference between a process and a thread, what is the runtime complexity of sorting a string, etc. As long as you're cool and confident (and not cringe/edgy), this part should be a breeze.
November - Mid January: If you made it through the two Thanos snaps, you will be invited to an onsite “Power-Day,” where interviewees attend 2-4 whiteboard interviews while being grilled on their technical skills and projects. Some companies make applicants go through a panel interview, where a team of 2-5 Software Engineers grill you on technical questions and your resume. You are often pampered with free travel, food, stipends, etc.
December - February: If you were deemed a good fit by the hiring committee, you will be extended an offer to intern at the company during the upcoming summer for 10-12 weeks. Remember, nothing is final until you receive an offer letter in your inbox. Some companies may also place you on a wait-list and offer you a spot if someone were to reject their offer letter.
For government orgs, defense companies, and smaller organizations, the recruiting season starts in February/March and usually ends in April and May. After applying online and passing the resume screen, you will usually be immediately pushed to an on-site interview. Most likely, you will be interviewing with your future boss/co-worker.
Please note that internships are not only offered in the summer, they are provided in the Fall, Winter, and Spring (rare) as well. The competition for these internships is usually lower, and the process usually starts 3-4 months beforehand.

How to get the Interview

Besides following resume tips, make sure to apply to as many places as you can. To get our first internships, we recall applying to approximately 250-300 places before we secured our internship plans for that summer. Also, if you do get ghosted, don’t take it personally, usually, university recruiters often spend so much time reviewing a lot of applications.
Other precautions to take to get noticed are to try attending career fairs if you can, you might be able to get an interview(worst case, free swag!). Other than that, try reaching out to upperclassmen or friends you know that interned and ask for referrals. It’s one of the best ways to get noticed!

What to expect

As part of the interview process, there’s 4 types of interviews that you should make sure you know.
Behavioral Interview: These interviews ask you questions about culture fit such as “Why are you a good candidate” and “Tell me about a time when you ...”
Coding/Technical Interview: These interviews ask you questions similar to what you see on Leetcode and Hackerrank. These interviews are designed to test your Data Structures and Algorithms knowledge.
System Design: System Design involves the interviewer testing your building to design a service/software and test your knowledge of understanding what things to use for the task and how you will integrate them together. You’re definitely not expected to know this and it’s not likely you’re gonna get asked this. Places that could ask you this are Unicorns, Trading Companies and Hedge Funds, and Big Established Companies.
Concurrency/Low Level Interviews: If the company’s biggest product involves low level principles such as networking principles and kernel stuff, there’s a possibility you can get asked this. Places that come to mind are hardware companies and trading firms.
Some companies may adopt only one of these interviews and some may adopt all.

How to Ace the Interview

It’s highly recommended that you look up the interview experiences that other students have faced so that you can potentially filter out companies with red flags and know what questions to expect. Common sources to search up on this would be Reddit (csMajors and cscareerquestions), Jumpstart (Relatively new portal for students), Glassdoor and maybe Blind (Aside from the toxic TC or GTFO culture, they do give good advice on interviews). With that said, here’s some advice we have when you approach each kind of interview we’ve seen.

Advice on Behavioral Interviews

Use the STAR method when describing your experiences. Being quantifiable with the impact of your actions will impress the interviewer.

Advice on Technical Interviews

Begin by reviewing your notes from the Data Structures and Algorithms class. Do not proceed further until you know how to implement these DS and As from scratch with the language of your choice(If you do know python, it’s recommended as there’s a lot of builtin features!). After doing so, we highly recommend a book like CTCI and EPI to gain a review on programming language details and your DS and As. Then, visit sites like LeetCode to practice real questions from major companies. A Facebook Engineer completed 600 LC problems and compiled the most important ones into a list here. During the interview, make sure to talk out loud about possible approaches and tradeoffs before whiteboarding. It is perfectly acceptable (often recommended) to ask the interviewer to ask questions about the problem and get clarification. Once you have an idea in mind and have talked about it with your interviewer, begin whiteboarding. While you talk about the final idea you want to use, write out pseudo code and comments about all the steps you need to implement in order to finish coding your solution. After that, start coding. Make sure to have proper function headers, syntax, spacing, classes/structs, imports, etc. After coding your solution, give a brief explanation and attempt to make it run with less space and in less time (if your solution is not as efficient as you think it can be).

Advice on System Design

These are somewhat hard to approach if you don’t have experience ever doing it. If you do have experience designing and building services in your spare time and as part of your work experience, definitely rely on your experience. An important thing is to definitely ask clarifying questions. There might be hidden requirements you didn’t think about that could drastically change the way you approach the solution.

Advice on Concurrency/Low level

Understand basic principles such as Processes vs Threads (A lot of people don’t know the difference!)TCP vs UDP and how to make an application thread safe. Other than that, it’s recommended that you familiarize yourself with basic OS concepts such as Deadlocks, locks that you can utilize to make an application thread safe, etc.

Searching for Full Time Jobs:

The big bucks.
The process for finding a Full-Time Job is usually very similar to finding an Internship. There’s three main differences are:
  1. Harder Questions. Ex: Google usually asks Leetcode Mediums to Hards + the special Leetcode Hard question that Google asks it’s applicants (they create a new one every year).
  2. More Rounds of Interviewing: For example, Microsoft makes interns do 2 rounds while New Grads do 4 rounds during the onsite part of the process.
  3. Compensation: Interns usually get an hourly rate and, possibly, a housing stipend. New grads, however, are given a yearly salary and, possibly, a sign-on bonus, stocks, and benefits e.g. health insurance, vacation days, etc.
The process for finding a Full-time Job won’t really change as much as finding an internship, but keep in mind that the bar is higher. This is probably the biggest reason why you should look into interning early; by getting an offer at the place you like, you don’t need to go through the daunting process of finding a full-time role.
Get as many offers as you can this time around, so you can negotiate and select the position, company, compensation, and location that works best for you.

Negotiation

Negotiation is a really powerful tool that you can use in the interview process, even as an intern. There’s a lot of guides to negotiation and we recommend Nick Singh’s guide (Look at his LinkedIn and newsletters) for more.

Final Thoughts

University is a probably the most important time of your life and a foundational block of your CS Career. Like any foundation, it must be sturdy and takes a tremendous amount and energy of time to develop. Take advantage of all the resources (like this one) you can get your hands on. Definitely learn from the mistakes people have made and make sure you don’t repeat the same mistakes.

A /cscareerquestions College Survival Guide

With our final school year beginning, we were reflecting on how lost and confused we were when we first started university. We made a lot of mistakes (still am) along the way, but we’re in a much better place after learning from them and constantly putting ourselves out there. In hopes of shining some light and helping others, we decided to make a comprehensive guide for university students – based on our knowledge/experiences - on how to start your successful CS Career (or gain the wisdom to avoid CS altogether, more on this later).
rishiss Background: I am a 4th year student at UC Irvine majoring in Software Engineering. I am an incoming Software Engineer at a F100 company (received return offer after interning this summer). Before that, I interned at an R & D center for space, a small cloud company, and a small IT company. I have a 3.65 GPA, won a few awards at startup competitions/hackathons, and remain pretty active in my schools CS organizations.
chaitu65c Background: I’m a 4th year student at UC Irvine majoring in Computer Science. I’m currently a SWE Intern at a Unicorn and just wrapped up my 2nd internship at a Live Streaming Company(you can most likely tell who they are if you browse my history LOL). Before this, I interned at my school’s IT department, did research under a professor, and worked on a few small startups that other UCI students were building. I have a 3.3 GPA, won some awards along rishiss and was pretty active in my school’s CS clubs.
Disclaimer: “But rishiss/ and chaitu65c, you don’t work at a Big N, go to a target CS school, why should I take your advice?” You’re absolutely right; we are, by no means, ‘up there’ like some other folks on this sub. And, you don’t have to take our advice! Simply close this tab and do whatever else you want 😊. Our intent is to guide and prepare uni students for a CS career they enjoy, not work at Big N or get the highest TC. Life is much more than a dick-measuring contest, and the earlier you learn that the better.
We have also created a guide with our own personal advice/stories

Please, take this advice with a grain of salt. we’re not Tony Robinson or Tim Apple, we’re just two random reddit users.

This guide is divided into the following sections:

Is CS Right For Me?

The way we see it, there’s 3 types of people pursuing CS.
  1. Those who know CS isn’t for them – They’re in it for the money, to appease their parents, for a minorequirement, some external factor. They hated programming while taking the introductory CS course and just try to get done with their class/degree ASAP.
Advice: The majority of people who fall under this usually burn out quickly, as they aren’t motivated enough to learn the material and to apply themselves. This usually leads to them cheating and getting kicked out of their major, minor, or university altogether. Even if you manage to earn a degree, we've seen a large number of these folks endure a 'pre-mature' mid-life crisis or simply get fired from their jobs. Before you even start this major, you should definitely understand that this isn’t going to be easy, and you do have to put in a lot of effort to succeed. If this isn’t your cup of tea, definitely look into switching into another major you like.
Some folks are really passionate about technology, but don't want to pursue an entire Computer Science major or see themselves as Software Engineers. That's completely ok! Try looking into related majors or minors. We know many students who switched from CS to majors like Informatics, Business Information Management, and Economics and are thriving in tech-related roles like Data Analytics, Product Management, UI/UX Design, and Technical Recruiting. CS is not (and should not be) for everyone, and there is no shame in having the wisdom quit and move on.
  1. Those who don’t know if CS is for them – Where most of the CS community is IMO. These folks (like me, rishiss) are riddled with something called Imposter Syndrome: “the constant feeling of not being good enough or knowing enough to do your job well.”
Advice: For students, really take the time to learn and be open to anything you go through. Try sticking it out until you've taken a Data Structures course, one of the harder, more important courses out there. If you're not understanding the material or just aren't having fun with it, it’s definitely ok to switch majors/careers. Otherwise, CS just might be the career for you! Give it your best shot!
Admittedly, it's hard to provide stronger insight to overcoming Imposter Syndrome, as I am afflicted by it as well. For me, my IS derives from constantly comparing myself to others and confusing inexperience with incompetency. As such, I continue to work and focus on myself and take baby steps towards smaller goals I set out for myself. Knowing that I've put the effort to improve myself by just 1% everyday has made me a lot more confident.
  1. Those who know for a fact CS is for them – The diamonds in the rough. Learning and practicing CS material gives them a euphoric high.
Advice: Broaden your scope and learn new areas of CS! Who knows, you might find another new field that you really want to work in. Other than that, definitely make new friends regardless of whether they’re a CS major or not. Even try pursuing other hobbies like weightlifting, reading, dancing, or even public speaking. Don't limit yourself!

Freshman Year

We recommend not taking more than 3-4 classes in your first quartesemester, as you shouold keep an ample amount of time to go to professional/social events, make new friends and hang out with them, and pursue your interests.
We've seen a lot of freshmen (and upperclassmen) CS folks get cooped up in their dorm rooms playing video games and watching TV. We understand that these two are a passion for many, but please be cautious to not get consumed by them.
You have the privilege of pursuing higher education, making valuable connections/memories, and setting up your CS career in the trajectory you want. This year is the best year to take advantage of all that university has to offer; make the most of it.
One of the best ways to get involved in your school’s/region’s CS community is by joining clubs like ACM and WICS and participating in hackathons (see ‘Hackathon’ section below). Try pursuing internships and positions in these organizations and events as well!
One, major issue we see with freshmen (even upperclassmen) is their ignorance on all the avenues available in the CS Industry. So we’ve tried to narrow it down (not exhaustive).
  1. Cyber Security Engineer
  2. Front-End Web Developer
  3. Backend Web Developer
  4. UI/UX Designer
  5. DevOps/Cloud/Site-Reliability Engineers
  6. Mobile Engineer
  7. QA Engineer
  8. Product Manager
  9. Data Scientist (Machine Learning/AI)
  10. Embedded Software Engineer
  11. Systems Administrator
  12. Database Administrator (The Wizards)
  13. Networking Engineer
  14. Hardware Engineer
  15. OS Developer
  16. Video Game Developer
  17. Solutions Architect/Sales EngineeTechnical Account Manager
As a freshman, definitely take the time and see if you can picture yourself doing any of the listed fields. You should open yourself to all facets of CS and not just the “hot field” like Data Science and Machine Learning. Choosing a field because it’s “exciting” will usually lead to bad results as usually, other people are thinking just like you and will lead to over-saturation.
Our recommendation is to select the top 5 fields that have piqued your interest and experiment with the field. For example, if you are interested in Mobile App Development, try learning how to build an Android app from the ground up. A simple weather app or alarm clock is completely suitable for a first project/prototype. This lets you understand what skills you would need for this field and can serve as a forecast as to what your career would look like.
You should definitely look for an internship. Ignore the people that tell you to wait until you’re a junior, as it’s going to be very hard to get an internship if you don’t have any experience. Common places that most students don’t realize are available are usually IT departments at your school and even research with professors. Researching is highly recommended as you can definitely learn more about a field you can be interested in and if you’re interested in graduate school, that’s going to be a letter of recommendation that you can ask for.
If you’re considered a minority in Computer Science, look into first and second year internship programs as they’re meant to help you succeed. Here’s some programs that come to mind:
Google STEP
Microsoft Explore
Amazon Future Engineer
Uber STARInternhip
Facebook University
Another way to get internships is to research into smaller companies in your area. If the company is very small (<100 employees), consider reaching out to the CEO on LinkedIn. They might be able to help you! Also, take advantage of university recruiting websites like Handshake to see companies that directly hire from your school. More info on how to get an internship in the ‘Searching for an Internship’ section.

Sophomore Year

Now that you have basic programming knowledge, create your own website or GitHub account and start contributing to them with small personal projects. Nobody expects you to make a full-stack MERN project hosted and scaled on AWS at this stage. Focus instead on clean code, learning a framework or two on a language you like, and creating a small, robust feature. Grow from there!
If you weren’t able to find an internship/research opportunity as a freshman, community involvement, projects, and hackathons become especially important, as they are a great way to make you stand out on your resume and to recruiters when you reapply. As you brush up on your skills, apply again, and try your luck out.

Data Structures and Algorithms

In addition, you are most likely to take a Data Structures and Algorithms course this year. Make sure you are focusing on this class and writing good notes; you will need this knowledge when interviewing for internships and full-time jobs in the near future. Here is a link to our DS and A course (in C++) for reference

Junior Year

As a junior, companies are more willing to hire you for an internship, as they are likely to convert you into a full-time employee after graduating. This transition process is much easier than interviewing, and they'll usually offer you a higher compensation package if they want to convert you to a full-time employee. As you now should have knowledge of Data Structures and Algorithms, we highly recommend looking into coding interview prep sites like LeetCode and HackerRank or purchasing a prep book like CTCI or EPI (advanced).
Continue to attend hackathons, remain active in clubs/organizations, and grow your portfolio.
Classes will be much harder; expect the time for completing projects to double and the content covered to be much more difficult. We recommend taking no more than 2-3 upper-division CS courses and balancing your load with 1-2 GE classes. You should not be taking more than 16 units (assuming 4 units per course).
Start to get an idea of what field in CS you would like to pursue. Research what it takes to be successful in that field. You can do so by looking up job postings with that title on LinkedIn and looking at the requested skill set or take a look at Roadmap.sh. If you want to learn more about a related skill set and your school doesn't offer a course, consider picking up a class on udemy.com.

Senior Year

Focus heavily on your senior capstone, project classes, etc. as they're the last thing you can put on your resume before applying for full time. By now, you should have at least 3 polished, working projects on your GitHub that you can easily talk about with your recruiter. Preferably, they're aligned with the CS field you wish to enter.
If you were able to get a return offer from an internship, congrats! However, don’t immediately sign the offer. Once you have an offer, you should still try to interview at companies that you’re interested in by the deadline of the time to accept the offer. A good way of doing this is to reach out to a University recruiter for that company and explain the deadline you have. Usually, they’re really helpful and can potentially help skip interviews that you were supposed to do!
In addition, if your friends were able to intern at places you’re interested in, definitely ask for a referral or to send your resume to their recruiter. This usually reduces the risk of being ghosted by that company and increases your chances of getting hired!
Once you finally sign, definitely take the time to relax and enjoy. Just make sure you pass your classes and stay out of trouble

Classes:

What Classes should I take?

Should Already be Required:

Must Take:

Good to Have

How do I succeed in these classes?

rishiss: You’re more than likely coughing up hundreds, if not thousands, to attend university. It makes no sense to not take full advantage of the course and course staff.
The way I take notes: I learn from examples; I want to enter my code into the IDE to see what happens. I do a three way split; Google Docs on the left, IDE on top right and terminal (to compile, see output, make new file, etc) on bottom left. I note down the date and topic of the lecture and write questions I have in the comments on Docs. I make sure to highlight important information and possible test questions. I even share the link with friends!

In the quarters where I followed the steps above, I never got a grade lower than an A-.

Dealing with Bad Professors

During your time in college, you’re likely going to have at least one bad professor that might make it worse if you have to go to class. If that’s the case, it’s definitely fine to not go to class (as long as it’s not mandatory). However, if you do decide not to go, you must make sure you learn the material, so you won’t be behind on the coursework and studying for tests. In addition, you should be doing something productive on the side. If you don’t go to class and spend the time watching Netflix or playing video games, you’re losing time that you can spend on something that might be fun and can help you in the long run.

You can take Graduate Courses!?

chaitu65c: A highly underutilized set of courses you can take would be graduate courses. Graduate courses are usually very specialized in certain fields. If you were able to take all the undergraduate courses you wanted and still have spare classes to fill out, I'd recommend researching into taking Graduate courses! They’re a good way to build out your specialization and learn new, cool stuff! In addition, if you’re looking for classes to reach the required number of CS courses needed, your CS department might allow you to make the course count towards your degree!

Projects

They're super important.

How do I succeed in class projects?

Personal Projects and your CS Career

rishiss: Projects are your saving grace, especially if you are lacking work experience. They show technical aptitude, willingness to take initiative, and leadership. I’ve seen people with only projects on their resume get positions at the Big N. Projects are good ways to expand your knowledge of CS as the possibilities are endless! It is best to have a variety of projects dealing with a variety of technologies. As such, you can open yourself up to more positions and have more talking points during the interview.
I tend to edit the ‘Project’ Section of my resume with relevant projects and technologies. For instance, if I made a full stack web application and applied to a DevOps organization, I would highlight my AWS, CI/CD, and Terraform experiences more than my React/Node js work.
It is recommend the project is about something that motivates you and are passionate about e.g. video games, movies, books, sports, etc., as it is very easy to give up half way due to stress or lack of motivation/interest.
Like anything else in Computer Science, projects require you to break it down into smaller pieces. Start with the end in mind and draw out the intended architecture/functionalities. Start with what you know and research on the parts you don't know after that. You will be using these skills often in industry for any project/feature planning.
Spending 15-30 minutes a day is all you need to make a successful personal project. Don't make excuses and get coding!

Open Source Contributions

If you’ve ever noticed popular github repositories such as torvalds/linux, these are repositories where people from all over the world can report issues with it and someone can fix it. If you are able to make a contribution to a huge open source repository, it looks really good on your resume.

Hackathons

What are Hackathons?

Hackathons are large scale coding events, where students from around the area come together and collaborate - usually in teams of 4 (but you can go solo or with a partner!) - to build some software. Companies like Amazon, Northrop Grumman, Google, and Twilio sponsor awards related to best use of their technology. After 24 - 48 hours of intensive coding, participants submit their projects, whether it be an Android video game, Chrome Extension, productivity web app, etc. Submissions are shared with the companies and other hackathon organizers, where they select the best projects and award teams with swag like keyboards, gift cards, and even summer internships at their company.
Participating in hackathons are one of the best ways to hone your coding skills, network with companies and other students, and get free comfy T-shirts. It is also one of the best ways to gain industry knowledge, as representatives from these companies and hackathon organizers create numerous workshops and answer any questions you may have. Winning awards at these hackathons are also great resume boosters and talking points during interviews.
The biggest hackathon organizer is Major League Hacking. Visit their website, and you can see all the hackathons (remote or local) they are partnered with. Make to be on the lookout for application release dates from the hackathons and apply early.
With Covid, you may miss out on the free goodies and the in-person networking with students and professionals. However, most hackathons are accepting many more applicants due to it being virtual/remote this year.

What Should I Do At Hacakathons?

Take advantage of the resources available at hackathons. You’re attending a mini CS conference and should be, besides coding, networking with professionals, learning about the different companies, attending workshops, asking technical/non-technical questions to mentors, and getting as much free shit as you can get. Besides T-Shirts, companies give out vouchers to their services, applications to their internship and full-time positions, pillows, notebooks, water bottles, sweaters, and even backpacks.
If you’re looking to get an award, judges at hackathons care a lot about the pitch and the idea rather than the actual execution of the idea. Having an idea beforehand is also helpful, so you can spend your time focusing on the MVP.

Friends and Networking

chaitu65c: I think it’s definitely useful if you have two different friend groups: One dedicated to career and Non-Career Group.
Career Group - When making a friend group dedicated to career, try to be the dumbest person in the group, you’re definitely going to learn a lot from them as you soak up knowledge! Best ways of meeting friends who are career-driven can be through major specific orientation (actually how I met rishiss), courses, major related clubs, etc.
Non-Career Group - While having a group that motivates you for your career is important, it’s also important to have another friend group that can help you relax and to enjoy your time! A really good way to find these friend groups can be anywhere from your hall to General Education courses, social clubs like Circle K, fraternities/ sororities(if that’s your cup of tea) and others!
This is what has worked for us; no need to follow this exact format.

Resume

rishiss: Here are the few take-aways on writing a resume that gets through the ATS.

Searching for Internships

Searching for internships in CS is really different and harder from searching for internships in other professions. CS internship interview processes are often longer and much more technical on what you have learned as a CS major. We've prepped 2-3 months beforehand on CS concepts, whiteboarding, etc.

Timeline

This timeline primarily focuses on large, non-government/defense companies or competitive startups. This also assume you are applying for a summer internship.
August - September: Applications are opened to the public. Make sure to look out for positions and apply early, as most companies admit students on a rolling basis. A site that we used often is Apply.fyi. After applying, you may receive an automated (< 48 hours) invitation to complete an Online Assessment, consisting of multiple choice and/or coding questions about Data Structures, Algorithms, and Run Time Complexity. You will have usually 1-2 weeks to complete the assessment. Please that you may be rejected if you are not able to pass 90% of the questions on the assessment: Please also note that you may be instantly rejected due to things out of your control like years of experience, cancellation of internship, internal corporate issues, and more. Don't take rejections too seriously; just keep applying!
October - November: After passing the resume screen and the OA, you will be contacted by the company's recruiter for a phone screen. During the screen, you will probably be asked a few confirmation questions about your resume, sponsorship, years of experience with X, etc. and minor behavioral questions like what made you apply for this position, what are you pursuing outside of class, etc. You may also receive questions about your CS fundamentals e.g. what is a hashtable, whats the difference between a process and a thread, what is the runtime complexity of sorting a string, etc. As long as you're cool and confident (and not cringe/edgy), this part should be a breeze.
November - Mid January: If you made it through the two Thanos snaps, you will be invited to an onsite “Power-Day,” where interviewees attend 2-4 whiteboard interviews while being grilled on their technical skills and projects. Some companies make applicants go through a panel interview, where a team of 2-5 Software Engineers grill you on technical questions and your resume. You are often pampered with free travel, food, stipends, etc.
December - February: If you were deemed a good fit by the hiring committee, you will be extended an offer to intern at the company during the upcoming summer for 10-12 weeks. Remember, nothing is final until you receive an offer letter in your inbox. Some companies may also place you on a wait-list and offer you a spot if someone were to reject their offer letter.
For government orgs, defense companies, and smaller organizations, the recruiting season starts in February/March and usually ends in April and May. After applying online and passing the resume screen, you will usually be immediately pushed to an on-site interview. Most likely, you will be interviewing with your future boss/co-worker.
Please note that internships are not only offered in the summer, they are provided in the Fall, Winter, and Spring (rare) as well. The competition for these internships is usually lower, and the process usually starts 3-4 months beforehand.

How to get the Interview

Besides following resume tips, make sure to apply to as many places as you can. To get our first internships, we recall applying to approximately 250-300 places before we secured our internship plans for that summer. Also, if you do get ghosted, don’t take it personally, usually, university recruiters often spend so much time reviewing a lot of applications.
Other precautions to take to get noticed are to try attending career fairs if you can, you might be able to get an interview(worst case, free swag!). Other than that, try reaching out to upperclassmen or friends you know that interned and ask for referrals. It’s one of the best ways to get noticed!

What to expect

As part of the interview process, there’s 4 types of interviews that you should make sure you know.
Behavioral Interview: These interviews ask you questions about culture fit such as “Why are you a good candidate” and “Tell me about a time when you ...”
Coding/Technical Interview: These interviews ask you questions similar to what you see on Leetcode and Hackerrank. These interviews are designed to test your Data Structures and Algorithms knowledge.
System Design: System Design involves the interviewer testing your building to design a service/software and test your knowledge of understanding what things to use for the task and how you will integrate them together. You’re definitely not expected to know this and it’s not likely you’re gonna get asked this. Places that could ask you this are Unicorns, Trading Companies and Hedge Funds, and Big Established Companies.
Concurrency/Low Level Interviews: If the company’s biggest product involves low level principles such as networking principles and kernel stuff, there’s a possibility you can get asked this. Places that come to mind are hardware companies and trading firms.
Some companies may adopt only one of these interviews and some may adopt all.

How to Ace the Interview

It’s highly recommended that you look up the interview experiences that other students have faced so that you can potentially filter out companies with red flags and know what questions to expect. Common sources to search up on this would be Reddit (csMajors and cscareerquestions), Jumpstart (Relatively new portal for students), Glassdoor and maybe Blind (Aside from the toxic TC or GTFO culture, they do give good advice on interviews). With that said, here’s some advice we have when you approach each kind of interview we’ve seen.

Advice on Behavioral Interviews

Use the STAR method when describing your experiences. Being quantifiable with the impact of your actions will impress the interviewer.

Advice on Technical Interviews

Begin by reviewing your notes from the Data Structures and Algorithms class. Do not proceed further until you know how to implement these DS and As from scratch with the language of your choice(If you do know python, it’s recommended as there’s a lot of builtin features!). After doing so, we highly recommend a book like CTCI and EPI to gain a review on programming language details and your DS and As. Then, visit sites like LeetCode to practice real questions from major companies. A Facebook Engineer completed 600 LC problems and compiled the most important ones into a list here. During the interview, make sure to talk out loud about possible approaches and tradeoffs before whiteboarding. It is perfectly acceptable (often recommended) to ask the interviewer to ask questions about the problem and get clarification. Once you have an idea in mind and have talked about it with your interviewer, begin whiteboarding. While you talk about the final idea you want to use, write out pseudo code and comments about all the steps you need to implement in order to finish coding your solution. After that, start coding. Make sure to have proper function headers, syntax, spacing, classes/structs, imports, etc. After coding your solution, give a brief explanation and attempt to make it run with less space and in less time (if your solution is not as efficient as you think it can be).

Advice on System Design

These are somewhat hard to approach if you don’t have experience ever doing it. If you do have experience designing and building services in your spare time and as part of your work experience, definitely rely on your experience. An important thing is to definitely ask clarifying questions. There might be hidden requirements you didn’t think about that could drastically change the way you approach the solution.

Advice on Concurrency/Low level

Understand basic principles such as Processes vs Threads (A lot of people don’t know the difference!)TCP vs UDP and how to make an application thread safe. Other than that, it’s recommended that you familiarize yourself with basic OS concepts such as Deadlocks, locks that you can utilize to make an application thread safe, etc.

Searching for Full Time Jobs:

The big bucks.
The process for finding a Full-Time Job is usually very similar to finding an Internship. There’s three main differences are:
  1. Harder Questions. Ex: Google usually asks Leetcode Mediums to Hards + the special Leetcode Hard question that Google asks it’s applicants (they create a new one every year).
  2. More Rounds of Interviewing: For example, Microsoft makes interns do 2 rounds while New Grads do 4 rounds during the onsite part of the process.
  3. Compensation: Interns usually get an hourly rate and, possibly, a housing stipend. New grads, however, are given a yearly salary and, possibly, a sign-on bonus, stocks, and benefits e.g. health insurance, vacation days, etc.
The process for finding a Full-time Job won’t really change as much as finding an internship, but keep in mind that the bar is higher. This is probably the biggest reason why you should look into interning early; by getting an offer at the place you like, you don’t need to go through the daunting process of finding a full-time role.
Get as many offers as you can this time around, so you can negotiate and select the position, company, compensation, and location that works best for you.

Negotiation

Negotiation is a really powerful tool that you can use in the interview process, even as an intern. There’s a lot of guides to negotiation and we recommend Nick Singh’s guide (Look at his LinkedIn and newsletters) for more.

Final Thoughts

University is a probably the most important time of your life and a foundational block of your CS Career. Like any foundation, it must be sturdy and takes a tremendous amount and energy of time to develop. Take advantage of all the resources (like this one) you can get your hands on. Definitely learn from the mistakes people have made and make sure you don’t repeat the same mistakes.

2020.09.14 16:16 BIT_TEAM Earn securely on cryptocurrency with BIT.TEAM

How profitable is it to invest in cryptocurrency in the present unstable time, all interested people ask themselves. After all, the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic will soon come, because of which the ruble has suffered a historic fall. However, we want to assure you that the cryptocurrency market is only growing. During the coronavirus pandemic, interest in bitcoin began to rise again. Now the cost of one bitcoin is more than 10 thousand US dollars. Its market capitalization has surpassed $ 220 billion for the first time since the beginning of 2020 and equaled the market capitalization of such a market giant as Netflix. Many investors are moving from markets to the digital currency market, transferring funds to them in order to wait out a difficult period in the economy. If you invested in bitcoin at the beginning of the year and only sold now, you would get 64% profit. However, the beauty of Bitcoin is in its volatility, which allows you to make money on this asset quickly and often. Ukraine, in particular, ranks first place in the world in the use of cryptocurrencies and the population's interest in them is only growing. In order to start investing money in the cryptocurrency market and make a profit from this, first of all, you need to choose a reliable platform for work. One of these platforms is the British company BIT.TEAM, which is very popular in the European market and in the CIS. Here are all the most popular cryptocurrencies, in particular: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, etc., more than 60 ways to deposit or withdraw funds, fast and easy verification, most importantly, the platform works in FCA - one of the most reliable UK regulators. So, you don't have to worry about the safety of your funds, because the government of foggy Albion has already taken care of it. A big plus is that the site is completely Russified, and for those users who do not speak English, it will be much easier to use the platform. Forward to new heights - with BIT.TEAM, one of the most reliable services for buying/selling cryptocurrencies.

2020.09.13 16:00 Mr_Draven La polemica intorno al film "Cuties"

Premessa, non ho visto il film quindi non lo sto criticando nè difendendo. Commento soltanto la polemica in corso.
Breve riassunto. A fine agosto Netflix pubblicizza un film che vorrebbe denunciare l'ipersessualizzazione delle minorenni utilizzando un poster e una trama ammiccante. Il film era stato presentato mesi prima al Sundance Festival ed ben recensito su Rotten Tomatoes (88%). Prima polemica, Netflix si scusa per il marketing inappropriato. La polemica rientra, almeno aspettiamo di vedere il film.
Esce il film, la polemica riesplode. Hashtag cancelNetflix, perdita di 9 miliardi in borsa. Il film mostra ragazzine di 11 anni che fanno twerking e movimenti sensuali. In sostanza mette in scena quello che vorrebbe denunciare.
Questo in estrema in sintesi, per avere altri dettagli basta cercare "Cuties" su Reddit, Twitter o youtube e venire sommersi da una quantità impressionante di rant.
Rimango perplesso dalla portata immensa di questa polemica. Cioè, il film potrebbe essere pessimo come trama, con un buon intento ma malamente eseguito ed avere contenuti inappropriati ma questo incubo di vedere child pornography ad ogni angolo, che ci siano pedofili ovunque e conseguentemente di volere denunciare così vigorosamente tutti i soggetti coinvolti lo trovo assurdo.
Sicuramente il tutto viene cavalcato dalla destra americana (si vedano prese di posizione di candidati Repubblicani, i soliti QAnon, i soliti Obama messi in mezzo perché collaborano con Netflix...) ma mi pare che questa volta sia un argomento abbastanza trasversale. E per questo mi fa una certa paura.

2020.09.12 04:37 WholesomeTransGirl I Just Bought 3 New Netflix Subscriptions!

First off I'd like to congratulate Netflix on being brave enough to support creative and bold female directors like Maïmouna Doucouré, and not backing down when faced against the seemingly endless supply of fascists and conservative nutjobs in this country.
Yes, I bought three (3) new Netflix subscriptions, and here's why you should too! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely despise capitalism, but the Cuties movie is something far more than just another capitalist scheme to get money. The movie has inspired, and will continue to inspire thousands if not millions of young girls (and boys!) to feel sex positivity and be given the courage to stand up against tradition (peer pressure from dead people who didn't know any better).
The peaceful and inevitable march of progress will is going to be relentlessly attacked by those who profit from the privileges given out by a racist and xenophobic society such as the Western colonizer-ran world. Although it doesn't seem fair, we as white progressives should be incentivizing companies which will help make the world safer and more inclusive for POC and young women. For every Netflix subscription which a MAGA dimwit cancels we need to compensate to let companies like Netflix know that is both healthy and safe to expose the media to progress whether they are supportive or close-minded.
After watching the Cuties movie I was absolutely enthralled. I woke up the next morning and watched it a second time, absolutely in tears of how artfully well crafted the story and choreography was. It makes me so envious that I was never allowed to play with other girls when I was still cis, but I was able to relive my own childhood through this masterpiece of a movie. I knew that there would be /some/ bigots who refused progress, but when I checked twitter and saw that #CancelNetflix was at the top of trending I nearly had a panic attack as I was instantly hit with the realization that evil still exists at an extremely high level in this so-called country existing on stolen land.
Please Netflix, don't feel threatened by the meek cries of old white men who will be dead in a few years anyway. I'll be continuing my extra 3 netflix subscriptions until Netflix recovers to at least $600 per stock.

2020.09.10 02:19 radnovaxwavez Budget Gaming/HTPC Build

I'm building a PC for a 1080p projector system, it'll be handling Plex, Netflix, amazon prime and some light PS1 era and before emulator gaming, there's a few parts i need to buy but budget is tight (under £40), i'm building it into an old drawer box to save buying a new case. Most of the parts are ones i have lying around, theres no room for upgrading those
Spec list so far;
First problem is the CPU, i need something that can handle 1080p video without eating up too much of the budget,.
Second is the PSU, which just about doesnt fit in to the case with the motherboard in there, how dangerous is it to cut one of the edges off of the power supply to make sure it fits in the case? (i'd saw and file the edges off to fit exactly, then canned air on the components to get rid of any metal, no internals would be exposed).
Third is the GPU, to fit the sound card is have to make a custom slimmer cooler for it, i'm fine with this but im wondering if the on board Radeon HD 3000 graphics chip would do whats needed and i could avoid a GPU altogether, i know its a super old GPU but i cant find anything on the chip's video processing quality.
Thanks to anyone for suggestions, this is definitely an interesting build but needs some questions answered.
Thanks again.

2020.09.05 02:11 danlang 36 [M4R] #CedarRapids - A long shot from the cornfields of Iowa!

Hey there, and welcome to my somewhat awkward, somewhat charming (ideally), somewhat acerbic, and entirely honest post on this here subreddit.
Let me first confess, I do not, in fact live in a cornfield, we just have them here. So. Sorry if that’s what drew you. My bad.
Let me also confess that I’m hoping R stands for relationship and not a gender I’m unaware of—I tried to post this with [M4MorMM] or something, to indicate that I’m interested in guys single or coupled (or throupled, I suppose?), but my post was removed by the little bot person. Sooo... hopefully this headline works?
I digress. I’m Daniel—though I’ve gone by Dan or Danny as well—and I’m a gay cis dude who just finally read about polyamory (rather than just thinking about it a bunch and only having a vague awareness of what it was/could be) and found it really resonated with me.
If this were Grindr, I’d be a guy with pics and actual information in my profile. Though if this were actually Grindr, I’d have already run out of charact
Anyway, if you were hoping for pictures (and let’s be honest, who wants to consider dating someone when you don’t know what they look like?), there are a handful in my posts on various subs. Now that I’m writing this novella of a post, I’ll probably try to post a few to my profile also. But maybe don’t hold your breath.
Anyway again, I realize this is a long shot because Iowa is pretty small and I honestly don’t know how good I’d be at maintaining something long distance, especially in the age of Covid... but I’m just eager to explore connections with people, particularly people who understand and embrace polyamory.
I also realize this is a long shot because this sub is fairly heavy with posts from and for women. And while I love you all, ladies, I’m just not sexually or romantically attracted to you. And yes, your incredibly gorgeous and amazing bisexual husbands will make me want to reconsider that, but I’m pretty shoved over on the good ‘ol Kinsey Scale.
Okay, I figure I’ve rambled enough about whom I’m looking for.
A little about me.
I taught 8th grade English for three years and now work with teachers (in the same school) as an instructional coach. I liked teaching better, hate that we’re going back to school in person at the same time as I recognize being in person is better for kids in normal circumstances. And ultimately, I want to do other things - write, and make videos, mostly. I dabble in both currently. I do like my job, I just like other stuff better?
Otherwise I’m pretty nerdy. Trek over Wars, though I enjoy Wars as well. My frequent game rotation lately is Animal Crossing (Switch), Overwatch (X-Box), and No Man’s Sky (PC), though I haven’t played NMS lately. Tend to be a homebody, but don’t mind being outside, depending on the level of discomfort you want to subject me to 😂
Netflix, reading (young adult and fantasy mostly), writing (young adult and fantasy mostly), an occasional D&D game (though not for a while—shit’s been rough lately! Ask me what a derecho is!), and hanging with friends (up close if we’ve had to break quarantine already, or at a distance/masked if not).
Have three cats, a house that I’m selling to a friend soon, and a fairly decent life. I’m hoping to find someone(s) to share the good, work together on the bad and the mundane, and create the great.
Say hello if that might be you(s)!
PS - Also a long shot because I wrote so much, and people who read all of it will either be very much my people, or very much not. And that’s just the people who actually will read it! 😂

2020.09.03 23:37 richardsmustache “Paranoid” British crime drama, claims PMDD is not real

I recently started watching Paranoid, a series on Netflix, and I was already finding that the dialogue and general ideas surrounding mental health was really a load of Bologna. Well around 23:53 of episode 5 in season 1, one of the characters, cis male too, tells two detectives that along with ADHD, PMDD is a “made-up disorder.” I find it really disheartening that writers and frankly producers, and production companies, can continue to alienate whole groups of society instead of looking into the research and science surrounding depressive and psychological disorders rather than, especially in this case, add fuel to the fire that women are just “crazy” and delusional. But why should we be taken seriously right... Find it ironic that after years of PMDD not being a household term, and it’s still climbing, finally it is to some degree and yet fully mentioned in a negative sense.
