Day in the Life of a Computer Science Student | UoG

This is what I’m doing when I’m not posting YouTube videos. For a change I decided to film what I do at school, and show you guys some actual problems that software developers have to solve.

There’s not much content on YouTube which actually shows real software dev, usually people just talk and don’t really explain what they’re doing. I want to take it upon myself to show what actually happens when writing software and if there’s enough interest I can make videos as I am programming some new personal projects. On those I can actually show you guys code, and do whatever I want.

FAQ
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
What year / major / school?
– Second year computer science at university of guelph

What language?
– Almost everything for my assignments is written in C, I’ve had one Java course. Personally I know Java the most, then C, some web stuff for my website (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap), as well as R for stats courses. Oh and assembly haha that was fun.

How old is u?
– 19

Where u at?
– Canada

Why did u quit ur gaming channel?
– I want to be productive and create cool shit. Been working on many interesting side projects that I usually keep separate from YouTube but thinking about making videos about them. Gaming videos feel like a dead end for me creatively.

When can you post another video?
– When I’m not a slave to the education system (if everyone sent me a nice sum of money I could start my own company and be set, in the meantime subscribe and follow all my social medias will help)

Can I see some code / what’s next??
– ye look at my github (link under socials)

    I’m just starting out doing cs front end at Bootcamp, maybe one day I’ll come back to this and know what the hell ur talking about regarding algorithm stuff.



  2. imtooom on November 16, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    Brush your teeths



  3. BlueJarcher on November 16, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    What is the most used code in computer science



  4. Yur I on November 16, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    Ayeee a Canadian youtuberrr



  5. mohit arora on November 16, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    You should be happy your college provide practical knowledge to you. Here in my college we are not taught how to do practical implementation. All we do is learn code.



  6. Trending India on November 16, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    I’m cs guy i want to learn programming but I listen booring maths chemistry electronics engineering lecturer as they my subjects fir semesters and busy with writing assignment record



  7. Konsti K. on November 16, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    I started my first semester in Computer Sciences this year. Im not sure but my whole class thinks that teachers keep repeating themselves. For example we learn A in 4 subjects but get B, C, D, E for homework in this subjects. We have a subject called "Software Design" and in 3 months we only did theoretical stuff. No programming AT ALL. We do get a shitload to program at home now. Im currently trying to program a heron-square root programm in c. I´m already suffering. Is that normal ? 🙁



  8. TacticalKyuubi on November 16, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    i donated you tubes with airtime 20 cents <3



  9. Diego Acosta on November 16, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    never done any coding but what he was saying was making sense, lowkey wouldve watched the hour of him talking about coding



  10. Compact Cow on November 16, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    I kept thiking it can’t be that hard. Then 2:50 . I quit computer science lol.



  11. Omid. Am on November 16, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    hello
    are you a bachelor or master?
    which university do you study in?



  12. thesoldier on November 16, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    did you study discrete modeling? because it’s my first semester in germany as a cs student and we have discrete modeling but when i search on youtube videos about it, i get something different that what i learn, we learn basically discrete maths.



  13. Miguel C. on November 16, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Wow man Im from Spain studying the same degree and wow, we have the same subjetcs with the same names (obviously in spanish)



  14. Scottacious on November 16, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Are my classes supposed to be this difficult??????



  15. Bran Powell on November 16, 2019 at 6:37 pm

    Sometimes it’s so hard for me to understand what are the capabilities of human beings. Some can procrastinate and do shit with their lifes, while others grind hard and still manage to do what they love.



  16. Anxmon :3 on November 16, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    AAAAA ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF ALGORITHMS, I LOVE THAT COURSE



  17. Bluefire on November 16, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    please post more software development and coding, I’m learning a lot.



  18. Feuerwerk on November 16, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    What IDE are you using ?

    This video: I’m boutta end this mans career



  22. Federico Nuñez Avila on November 16, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    nice songs



  23. vivek sargotra on November 16, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    *Med student watching this*



  24. Hello_ World_ on November 16, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    Dude, trust me, computer science is applied maths



  25. tjayoub on November 16, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    I’m a science student from western, and I recently switched into applied math, and been doing some basic compsci stuff… glad YouTube randomly recommended your channel to me, you’ve gained a sub! I just know a bit of python, but love watching more complex video. Dope that you are studying in southwestern Ontario too



  26. sofyan mahmoud on November 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    Use VSCode instead of Atom 😉



  27. Aidan Polivka on November 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    This is lit, idk why it popped up on my feed but I’m about to graduate this school year with a computer science degree! Algorithms is all I have left lol 😬 computational theory was terrible



  28. Saygin Artiran on November 16, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    I hated my Digital Design class when I was in college lol



  29. maths on November 16, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    decided to watch it just for (procrastinating) fun but found here solution of my hw labs thank u



  30. emma on November 16, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    I think I wanna take computer science or software engineering



  31. Eusebio Erquiaga on November 16, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    I’m cs at UCLA it’s fuckin hell



  32. ömer __ on November 16, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    My dream is to be a computer engineer, but guess what .. There are no appointments for computer science graduates in Iraq. You are lucky, because you choose what you will be in the future, not as in Iraq, either as an oil engineer or to be a scavenger, I’m sad today, as every day, 18 years of reading and melting nights It is sad not to go to the branch you want, to live the life you want, to do the work that you love and creativity. ((((I am imprisoned in here)))) and As a sad young man who just realized that all the fatigue that he spent for his dream was in vain 😢



  33. KomboBoi on November 16, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    I’m 13 and I love everything about computers. I’m interested in a job like a software developer but I’m wondering if its *actually* a good job not just paying but an enjoyable job



  34. Milena Sanchez on November 16, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    i’m late but i’m actually motivated thanks a lot 🙂



  35. salima horan on November 16, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    I like this video so much cus whenever i watch videos like this they make me feel bad because the courses they are learning in the videos of whatever look so much complicated than what i’m currently learning hhhhh 😂😂😂😂 but when i saw the “nand,or ,and “ and the shipset image i felt less bad about my self because I’ve already studied these things . I hope you the best with your academics and have a good day



  36. Kalanidhi on November 16, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    what Linux OS do you use now???



  37. Luca Greggio on November 16, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Shit like every class of mine is math lol



  38. Mohammed Hussein on November 16, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    this video insults islam and you have stolen your algorithm



  39. Антон Алексеев on November 16, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    Классно. Я старался переводить как мог, но ты очень быстро говоришь, поэтому я мало что понял, но было интересно:)



  40. Zainab Siddiqui on November 16, 2019 at 7:06 pm

    any comp sci students from UMBC!?!



  41. Alex Pavelka on November 16, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    You should make a video about the part your cut off (for different problems ). It’s interesting hearing you explain what you’re doing. I don’t think universities really care too much if you do that



  42. Disolve Nusya on November 16, 2019 at 7:08 pm

    0:05 me before going to my school



  43. Deadline Eagle on November 16, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    2:57 fuckkkkkk in my college they ask us to do a problem on addition of two number and max to max bubble sort algorithm



  44. Shaaski on November 16, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Heeeeeell, there is such beautiful place you live at. Привет из России!



  45. StarchyMC on November 16, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    If you actually do the work, the majority of the time is still spent on Google with Stack OverFlow.



  46. James Kilpatrick on November 16, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Shit I was wondering where you went to school and now I see it’s Guelph, I’m from Toronto and I know lots of people who go to your school.



  47. R_y on November 16, 2019 at 7:17 pm

    I study at computer science and engineering collage. I still didn’t specialize in any field, I’m still a freshman student but watching your videos got me more motivated and now I liked the collage even more. I hope to see you talk more about different computer science fields and computer engineering fields, that would help a lot of students.



  48. Phxy on November 16, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    This is so cool and I’ve been wanting to get into programming and this is so cool



  49. omgacat520 on November 16, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    lol im a cs student and man these videos r fun, pretty sure ill be learning the exact same stuff in a couple of months.



  50. Turkish Fun on November 16, 2019 at 7:19 pm
