During a recession, school enrollment always increases.

As for the claim that "computer science entails little more than sitting cooped up in front of a PC banging out code," I (somewhat) agree.  I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and, if you work in the software industry, your job will be almost exactly that.  It's about 25% writing new code, and 75% debugging.

As it stands, I'm switching careers into something different.  I'm not sure what yet, but I want to do something where I don't have to spend all day in a God damned cubicle.

The days of a "programmer in a dark basement alone writing code" are over. If no one noticed, most, if not all, software is being written in teams, not by individuals. Computer Science is starting to involve more "people" skills than ever before.

PS. I am a student at Neumont University. This place is all about CS, if you are interested.

This fall I will be going to college to get a Bachelors in CIS in Networking, so I could see how this is going up, lol.

 

Very cool... kinda, I guess that means more competitions :)
