My perspective on IT, IS, and CS

A common questions for computing students is: what is the difference between degree progream between IT, CS, IS, SWE, etc.? How do they affect the career path? Let me share some of my own ideas, experiences, and perspectives

"If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out... Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won't make us happier."

"Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted. And experience is often the most valuable thing you have to offer."

From the Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
