yo. started this thread by accident. oh well.
Haha, where are you from?
from Philly, living in SF now. What about you?
Oh nice. Philly, good place. I'm in Atlanta. You working out in SF? The valley?
I'm working in SF.. medical research. pellet sucks though. Tryin to learn how to code cause I feel like it could potentially open some doors
haha, yea no doubt. Learning programming could definitely help in SF. How's the course coming along? What's it missing?
well I just started a couple days ago so I'm not sure if I can say yet. I haven't been watching the videos cause I feel that they're probably just a reiteration of what you read.
right, yeah some of it is definitely a redundant. The problem sets is where you proof in the pudding comes out in my opinion.
Things like this, where you give/get feedback from people are much more conducive to learning
yeah for sure, have you seen the older version of OpenStudy. I think they are testing this new one out. The old version has like over 6K people in the study group...it is ridiculous. How do you like this though?
this is the older one: http://openstudy.com/study-groups/MIT+6.0+Intro+Computer+Science+(OCW)
I saw it a couple months ago when I was gonna try the course, but I forget it. For some reason I feel like the old way was better though. This has too much of a twitter feel to it and it's not organized
yeah, I feel ya. How would you organize it?
Something more on the lines of a forum would be a whole lot nicer. Much more organized.
Problem set/exam sections, break things down by maybe lecture or topic
the number of repeated threads would be reduced too
yeah the thing I like about this is that I know where you are and know what everyone is doing. Forums, you post something and hopefully "someone" see it.
I've written them a couple emails to have them put a schedule function on here.
To help organize the people, not the content
do you work for them or you're just takin the class?
I'm a Ga Tech student... but I know some of the interns and prof who started it
yeah, did you go to undergrad in philly?
yea, just graduated from Penn in the spring. Now I realized that a science major wasn't the way to go.
sucks because on paper it looks like I'm not qualified for much, ya know? While people had internships that make them qualified for a lot of positons, I was in a lab.
not a bad uni thou :)
true. Just wish I did something else when I was there cause my major isn't gonna help with anything.
ah, f "it" the founder of Groupon was a damn music major...
aight man, well good luck, gotta bounce
alright dude, later
