Joel's Advice for Computer Science College Students

By Joel Spolsky Sunday, January 02, 2005

....... here are Joel's Seven Pieces of Free Advice for Computer Science College Students (worth what you paid for them):
  1. Learn how to write before graduating.
  2. Learn C before graduating.
  3. Learn microeconomics before graduating.
  4. Don't blow off non-CS classes just because they're boring.
  5. Take programming-intensive courses.
  6. Stop worrying about all the jobs going to India.
  7. No matter what you do, get a good summer internship.

Now for the explanations, unless you're gullible enough to do all that stuff just because I tell you to, in which case add: 8. Seek professional help for that self-esteem thing.
