    i am currently going after my bachelors degree in computer science. Want to do some applications development when I graduate so figured I would start a thread and see if anyone else is in the same path as me?

    I am a student at the university of South Carolina, have 2 years left towards my degree before I can Graduate, hope they go by fast lol.

    Just figured this would be a nice thread to talk about school/programming/classes and whatnot if any other college students around, or anyone older has anything to throw into the thread!

    I am currently learning Java and have started my UNIX/Linux, c and c+ programming. Next semester getting more in depth on c and c+ And have some computer architecture class to begin.

    I would recommend you venture into functional programming as Java, C and C++ are very limiting though great for backend/web service layers (think DevOps). I think it's great experience to learn the core principles of the languages you're learning at school but again you should learn functional as well, you will thank me later.

    I should have clarified limiting in the sense of the lack of expressiveness not the power of the language. What I meant my limiting, Java is your typical classical object-oriented language (strict typed) and is not very malleable like JavaScript. That can be a blessing but also a huge resounding curse.

    Good luck, BTW check out www.leanpub.com a lot of amazing digital books and won't break your bank.
