Advice for students

Via Planet Ubuntu i read Aaron Toponces Good Advice For Computer Science Students. Read his article! For reference here is the short version of the list:

  1. Practice the fundamentals (For example solve exercises in The Art of Programming)
  2. Seek challenges (Write 100,000 lines of code)
  3. Practice, practice, practice
  4. Don’t forget about mathematics
  5. Develop a team spirit and to learn how to work well with others
  6. Encourage innovation, and don’t necessarily stick to the authors code in the books
  7. Work strategically (Part time jobs, pick good bosses/environments)

Originally this list seems to come from a Dr. Kai-fu Lee from Google China.
