I started learning how to program in high school and did not really think too much about it until I went to college. During my first year in college, I was working full-time at a local accounting firm and took an Intro to Computer Science course. This taught me everything I ever needed to know about computers and taught me how to get my first job as a computer registrar. Throughout my years in college, I have taken many, from computer sciences, to programming, to accounting, and anything else that has given me the skills I needed to get where I am today.
During my years in college, I also took courses in computer science, which I like very much. During this time, I was very interested in the subject matter and wanted to do all the work myself, as I always had trouble with the subject matter when I was in school. However, I knew that it would take me four years at the most to earn a bachelor’s degree in computer science, and I also figured that I could probably not take all the classes on my own. Therefore, I began to search for ways to save money, and one of them was to take programming courses online or at my local community college.
When I finally got around to doing just that, I was very surprised by the low cost of the course. In fact, I found that the entire course was less than the price of a single college class. The coursework was spread out over four semesters at about twelve weeks each. During those semesters, I actually completed a lot of programming homework assignments. The software that I used for the course was really easy to use, and I did not have any problems at all getting it going. In fact, I loved programming homework so much that I repeated it four times in a row, earning myself an A.
After completing my programming homework at home, I started to search for someone to teach me how to write programs. My first stop was the University of Utah. There, I discovered that there are quite a few professors that teach programming, including a couple of ex-computer programmers. I decided to take a course with these guys, as they were the ones that taught me how to write programs as a college student. My experiences from that course are what I will be discussing here, and I will also tell you why I did not want to pay someone to do my Java programming homework for me.
The computer programmers in this course were very friendly and very knowledgeable. I got to talk to them on a personal level, asking questions, and even got to know one of the students in the class who studied computer science. This guy became a close friend, as we worked together on many of my programming projects. He ended up leaving the school after the course ended, but he has kept in touch with me ever since.
My final stop was the University of Maryland, College Park. This is where I am currently enrolled in school. I found that this university has an excellent program for those who are looking to get an education in computer science. My program here will focus on web design and computer programs, and they even have a minor in web development. I was very impressed by all of the computer programmers who attended this course, and I think it paid off well for me to choose to learn computer programming from these guys.
I ended up going to six different computer programmers training courses before I found one that was right for me. From the six classes I took, I have learned enough to pass all of the state bar exam. Now I will just have to take the exam next year to become a practicing computer programmer. At the current rate, that shouldn’t be too difficult. Computer programmers don’t get much recognition, so I hope to change that one bit.
