[18+] Is Computer Science overrated?
 | 
Netherlands Removed 
forbes.com/sites/jessecolombo/2019/01/30.. Do you guys think that due to the massive influx in people taking CS classes just because they like computers and therefore assume they will like coding will result into a flooding of the job market and less opportunities because of inflated supply? Do you think it's still wise to go for a CS degree in 2k19?

cause I work in the field and there is a crazy need of people. People jumping into computer science cause they "like" computers is not a new thing, happened when I went to unti as well, most people quit or just suck in the end. Some really fall in love with it though but there will be more than enough jobs trust me, especially if you attend a prestigious uni, they will scream after you in 5 years just like they do now.
2019-01-31 20:39
What would you count as prestigious? Would you count any EU unis other than ETHZ and Oxbridge as "prestigious"?

It will be like lawyers. If youre a good one and go to a good school there will be no shortage of opportunities, but if you got a cs degree from your community college you probably won't be cashing in Most dumb people probably can't make it through the coursework so its probably ok, but its something to keep in mind after all, shitty law schools and pharmacy schools started popping up that dumb kids could make it through

Yeah but the demand is also skyrocketing. They are encouraging people that like computers to get into the field so that they have more workers. If you don’t just ‘like conputers’ and excel in the subject then it is a VERY WISE pathway to take

Would you say it's one of the best?

If uninformed people are going into CS without a clue what it is, that won't have any effect on those who actually are good at programming and are high-level coders.

Ye, has to be bubble cause it skyrocketed lmao The truth is that dude writing this article is clueless. There is a huge demand for CS, much bigger than it was in 90s or early 2000. Basically every company has a branch of the company focused on data management, network security, graphics and guys responsible for simpler management in the workplace (setting up computers and software). And that's not even talking about firms that make software... so yeah, bullshit.

Depends how you take it, just getting a degree is pointless but if you know your way around the stuff yes it is.

If you like something you will probably be good at it

the demand is still growing a lot, so i dont think so. Rn it isnt even that hard to find decent Jobs in most places with a good cs degree. Like some guys already stated, every serious company needs a tech branch so the demand is huge and wont decrease any time soon.
