I first took to programming in high school because I thought programmers were cool. Now, it’s something I do every day.
I love computer science because it is such a useful skill. Since their invention, computers have come a long way. A simple calculator today can compute a million unimaginably large numbers in a fraction of a second. Advanced software can outthink the smartest humans. A clever algorithm can solve a problem trillions of times faster than the naive solution. Knowing how to program puts into your hand this superpower, one that will only become stronger in the future.
Each year, the most perceptive hackers ready their mechanical keyboards, dark themed IDEs, and birth programming language to engage in a fearsome battle of code errors, bugs, and cursing at computers.
Just kidding, programmers don’t leave the house.
I participate in many programming competitions including the CCC, USACO, and many different online contests.
