>>15793>That really sucks that most programming is pointless bullshit. I hadn't thought about that before actually.
Giving it second thought, next to anything is pointless bullshit, its true programming has alot of reptetive "copypaste, test, debug, adjust" loops and trivial crap.
But next to any occupation or activity has a similar cycle of repetiveness, even hard science.
I suppose you best disregard that.>Is there even a subject in college that you will learn a lot from? I really don't want to change my major. I've been at this for over a year and down over $10,000.
I couldnt really say, if changing or adding a different course are possible without losing money then maybe consider it.
As for the fields themselfs, i cant really say.
I suppose programming is good because it offers a very general and practical direction and can be done with cheap means easeley on your own.
Whereas say comperatively physics is very theoretic and of little practical value, but then again you could also learn it on your own.
And then comparing to some more specialized fields such as chemistry or biotech that cannot be effectively applied and learned on your own but are probably lucrative job oppertunites.
Screw humanities, law, finance and all that other crap.
Well im not the right person to give advice in general, im just giving things to consider.>Some of my teachers say I'm quite talented as a programmer and it could be a good career for me, though these are the same teachers with questionable competence and who don't help me much. Plus I've always wanted to do the programming thing since I was very young.
Thats good, maybe your teachers are lazy or burned out but now their stuff, atleast they have good oppinion of you, you will find out if you are good enough or not yourself and there are many bad programmers that get away with things so dont worry about it.Post too long.
