What is great about Computer Science is that it’s a greatly equalizing field. You can sit and build something, I can sit and build something and people can judge us based on what we’ve built.
It’s a basic need
And having even a little bit of grounding in Computer Science can help you think about the world differently whether that’s algorithms or just creativity. Creativity is a result of an ideation process which involves solving real problems on the ground.
Computer Science can unlock the best opportunities in the world no matter where you’re! Personally, there has never been a better more exciting time to be a Computer Scientist than now.
Computer Science and kids
When I think about what we’re going to teach in schools five to ten years from now, I definitely believe that Computer Science is going to be as important of a skill as even what kids do every day like basic reading and writing.
Integrating Computer Science as a subject in primary schools or early schooling stages of kids should be something players in the education sector are thinking of. Kids have to have that basic understanding of Computer Science in order to do anything creative with technology. It really doesn’t matter which industry you’re in. You need these skills!
The creativity loop
Computer Science is applicable in all aspects of life. So whether it’s marketing, product design, financial analysis among others; having software skills in every one of those domains, makes a very big difference.
One important thing to note is that Technology touches every part of our lives. So if you can change technology, you can change the world. That’s it!
It’s for all
Another thing is that, it’s not all about being a boy or a girl. It’s about being talented. Computer science needs more talent people. People who are not afraid of being creative and can make the world a better place.
And maybe to fill that gap between women and men in Computer Science field, we could just support girls and give them a little more initial encouragement. With this, then we could just start balancing the skills & we won’t even have to play with balancing the equation of women to men in technology. It will just be a natural flow.
Building with Computer Science
In almost every aspect of life or rather fields from my experience as a Computer Science student; be it education, finance, transport
Computer science with community and teams
When you have a diversity of engineers in the room building hardware and software, it means that that software and hardware ends up being way more accessible to a diversity of customers. The knowledge and ideas shared by teams building a solution are tremendously huge and more productive.
Software or hardware can be built with all aspects of life integrated so easily. The ideation process becomes more of a large scale and the end product ends up solving real problems on the ground.
Teams, together widens what I call the “innovation-cycle-scale”. What I mean by “innovation-cycle-scale” is the simplicity in building software or hardware. The product is made so real. The ideation process flows so easily and what comes out from the teams is basically REAL and as mentioned earlier, software and hardware totally ends up being way more accessible to a diversity of customers.
To conclude, I would insist that; Computer Science can unlock the best opportunities in the world no matter where you’re! Personally, there has never been a better more exciting time to be a Computer Scientist than now.
