Joel has some pretty good advice for computer science students. X years later, I can't help but stress how useful this advice really is.
- Learn how to write before graduating.
- Learn C before graduating.
- Learn microeconomics before graduating.
- Don't blow off non-CS classes just because they're boring.
- Take programming-intensive courses.
- Stop worrying about all the jobs going to India.
- No matter what you do, get a good summer internship.
