    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for more than one reason. First and foremost, there is an underrepresentation of Black women in STEM. Therefore, to have this class led by a successful, strong, and educated black woman, that looks like me, is inspiring. Secondly, though computer science can often present its challenges, it's a rewarding career field all the same. Computer science goes further than "just programming". Computer science applies problem-solving and analytical skills. Such strong skill assets are vital in today's growing technological led society. Lastly, computer scientists are innovators and entrepreneurs that keep producing this mainstream of talent. To work for yourself, at the leisure and power of creating products that help alleviate social problems and creates convenience, speaks magnitudes.

    Course highlights:

    First and foremost, the main highlight to this course is learning how to code. When you know how to code, you basically can take over the world. By that, once you learn to code, you open the doors to learning to build web apps, mobile apps, and more technological advances. However, on a deeper level, I learned how to apply sharp analytical and problem solving skills. I learned how to approach any and every situation from a computer scientist's standpoint. I know how to break down large obstacles and piece them together piece by piece . I learned what type of programmer I am. I prefer front-end development versus back end. I also learned that I can tackle big problems that require a lot of conceptualize thinking.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely say not to give up! The most rewarding part is mastering, finishing, and seeing it through a tough project or problem. When you push through a difficult concept in computer scientist or finish that project you thought you couldn't, you see your work come to life. That in itself is one of the most rewarding parts. It's not like finishing a 10 page English paper or that mastering a Calculus problem, but it's about seeing your work come into form. You can see all of your hard work through the apps, websites, and designs you implement and build. Your design, implementation, analytical and problem solving skills expand and sharpen. You become a stronger programmer through the passing days.
