(Posting this here as well, would genuinely like input), this is in response to a comment I just read. "Colleges are pumping out shitty coders by the hundreds."
I'm trying to become a programmer. What exactly makes a programmer shitty? Why is it bad to get a degree with the intent to be a programmer?
What exactly do I need to do to not be a shitty programmer? I'd appreciate some answers, because broadly labeling college graduates trying to be programmers shitty is confusing me right now. What is the difference, what do I have to do to be a 'good' programmer?
