I had heard this class was easy. The universal consensus was that this class was an easy-A, walk-in-the-park, sort of a joke of an upper-level Computer Science course.
I hate the people who told me that.
CPSC 110 and CPSC 210 (the prerequisite stream for this course) were probably my two favourite courses I had taken at UBC so far. Thus, I was definitely a bit excited to be taking CPSC 310 this term.
I’m not going to lie – I didn’t really take this class out of personal interest. It’s a prerequisite for CPSC 416 (Distributed Systems), which is pretty much the only 400-level CPSC course I wanted to take. That is, of course, other than CPSC 410 (Advanced Software Engineering) which UBC has again failed to offer this year. Being my final year, I won’t be waiting around for that one!
As of December 16th, I have only 12 credits left (or one semester of classes) to complete to finish my Bachelor of Computer Science degree! Which is very exciting, as being a 28-year-old full-time undergraduate student has lost most of its charm – over two years after it began.
I’d been putting this off for a little while – I originally created this static website during my first co-op job search to make me stand out a little bit from the other candidates. I’d had some previous experience with HTML/CSS, and knew I needed an edge when I was competing with hundreds of other CS students who had been doing the same courses.
