I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

I think you’d be surprised at the number of complete shit CS grads out there. I might consider hiring ~5% of the CS people I graduated with, if not less. Most of them could barely program Hello World without google or a TA/professor’s help, yet they graduated by leeching off other people, and because of grade inflation. They’ve never done any extra-curricular programming, learning, etc. They’re not actually interested in programming or CS. But they heard you can make lots of money as a programmer, so they stuck it out to the end.
