: : :) Yup yup yup, my major is something else not the programming.
: : I am thinking the reason why I needed to take programming is to make us get used to with the 'programming' or 'technical designing' or 'mathmatical' idea / notation of it. I understand it completely and programming notation is something I've never been through in my entire life!! :D
: : Even to communicate with you guys here is entirely new thing for me and I do enjoy it! Again sorry for my lack of knowledge on programming as I just started it last year and sadly.. (or more releave? lol) I am finishing it on October and I am having a final exam on August 10th!!! (ahhgggggrrrr!)
: Its sad, no relief...
...but we're all flattered, I'm sure, that we had such an effect on you. Thanx for the comment. If some of us aren't, the left side of their brain has already devoured their right, they have no more emotion...they are...no longer human
: You know, my mom was studying to become a nurse, and she had to take calculus...not that I don't like math, as most programmers love it, but the practical use for calculus in the nursing field...um...
: What was ur major anyway?
Yes, it's bit sad... because I started understanding a little weee bit of programming world and starting knowing you guys. Knowing or learning comletely new concept is always a challenging but fun. Then, it started getting really head (difficult) so it's a little bit of relief too but I will check this web site time to time not to forget about the subjects. I think the more and more nre ppl logong this page and start asking questions which I asked before! Well, then I can asnwer!
My friend studied Business and she did computer programming as well. I think in the many field the need of programming or at least let's say the skill of understanding the programming notation is much more required.
I am studying Product Design Technology. So yes I am gonna go thru calculus too. Scary!! I know the ppl do programming must be good at math. I am not and there will be more and more ppl involved in programming courses without even the basic knowledge of math and for them or for me, the simple notation of programming IS already a math notation and therefore is quite difficult.
: : It's also interesting to know or realise the each person has the programming style. I mean, sure of course but if you never deal with programming you would have no idea what the world of programming is!
: : What a nerdy teacher to teach and promote unreadabe code!!
: : Proberbly not practical but interesting...
: : Well, I will stick to something readable and comprehensible as that's only what I can stick to... to be nerdy requires great amount of skills.
: If you read it the other way, it says that people who have a great amount of skills are nerds. Hehe, the gurus here apply!
Oh I think yes deffinitly. :D
ANY subjects ANY nerds must be more or less smarter than other ppl who are not nerdy. I am from Japan and we use the word, Otaku for nerds. It started as a negative meaning calling somebody Otaku is like someone who never gets followed by girls or boys (for girl Otaku) but nowadays I think Otaku are getting citizenship. Ppl started realising how valuable their skills and knowledges are. Innovative at the same time sad part of it and it's truth I think is that non-nerdy ppl try to make money out of nerd's idea. Look at open sourse firefox and all that, it all came from nerds or ppl with less or no money. Ideas do not come from riches because they dont need to do "something" about it. But it's always the richs who make business out of it to make them selves richer because they have capital and can start anything. Parasites.
But the ideas always emerge from ordinary ppl or nerdy ppl. :)
I am bit nerdy on certain subjects (not computer or programming though) too.
