Question by GND: Should I take a “Computer Programming” course next year?
Hello! It’s my senior year next year and Ive decided to sacrifice a fun elective and switch into “Computer Programming”. The only reason Im taking this course is b/c I have absolutely no idea what I want to pursue when I graduate h.s. Nowadays, obtaining a job is extremely difficult, and I figured going into computers is a good career move. I thought I might as well try it out and see if it’s right for me. However, I have no experience with Java or C++ or anything computer related. To be honest, it’s not even interesting for me. Im in a class of experienced freshmen, which makes matters worse! Im the only girl as well.
I dont know what Im going to do when I walk into that class. Im not even that intelligent, and math is probably my weakest subject. Im not familiar with the computer language, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice and tell me how difficult it is/what exactly Java/C++ is.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance 🙂

If it’s not interesting to you, my suggestion is do NOT take the class.
Computer programming is hard enough for people who LIKE that stuff. For those who don’t, it’s BORING!
Find something you enjoy doing, and take a class in that.
