Computer Science: Why Bother?

Published 04 Apr 2016. Tags: computer-science, personal, video.

My employer, thoughtbot, runs a subscription-based online learning platform called Upcase which hosts the Weekly Iteration video series. I’ve been on a couple of episodes before, but we decided to make the latest one publicly available.

On Computer Science: Why Bother? Chris and I discuss why a perfectly successful web developer might want to squander their time with something silly like computer science. Unsurprisingly, this is a topic on which I have opinions.
