    Thanks!

    The name was supposed to be a combination of the words Swift and Twitter. I originally was going to call it Swiftter or Switter but both of them felt a little odd to write. As for the logo, that was a just a bit of fun. I've spent a lot of time coding recently so I thought it'd be nice to take a break to do some designing. Makes it seems a bit more "professional" too I think, but maybe that's just me

  • Posted to What is a Computer Science degree worth?, Apr 09, 2014

    I'm seeing a lot of people in this thread saying outright that there is no value in studying CS which, speaking as current CS undergrad, just isn't true.

    A degree is not going to guarantee you a job, and to many employers is may not matter at all, but frankly I think that shouldn't be how you determine it's value.

    Studying something formally gives you a very different sense of understanding compared to teaching yourself. There are countless things that I've learnt during my degree that I frequently come back to when working on external projects. Many of them are things I'm sure I would have a notion of it weren't for choosing to study CS. I also feel it has given me a much broader understanding of how things I'm doing work which can be incredibly helpful. I'm very glad that I have this solid foundation of knowledge that I can go back to.

    So what's the worth of Computer Science degree? Well, it's sort of up to you. By getting a degree in CS you'll learn all kinds of things that you wouldn't otherwise. So it all depends on how much you value put on that.
