My continued association with Computer Science

It has been 27years of my association with “Computer Science” today!

Recently I heard a student making a remark while selecting the course for undergraduate: “What is there in computer science? I can learn java on my own”

My clarification is as follows: “Computer Science” is not just a programming language or the skill of writing an program. A deep understanding of operating systems, memory management, compilers, data structures and algorithms, data storage, compression, encryption and security, parallel processing, analytics and on and on….

Along with the understanding, ability to apply the understanding to implement the algorithms with existing computing resources for solving the problems makes up the study of “Computer Science”

Of late, I have started learning the statistical language “R” and trying to experiment my ability to apply machine learning on some #kaggle challenges. My first submission to a competition: (Currently stand at 1110th position) 

Having moved my regular technology blogging to LinkedIn, my last year’s post:

So, like any other subject, “Computer Science” has lot of depth and breadth, if one wants to explore it!!
