It is exactly a decade since I left that place called a college, with a useless degree. As I look back, it was a criminal waste of four (4) years at that place. The worst part of it was, I was not equipped to make it to the IT world. Can you imagine someone to work in the web 1.0 world, without knowing http protocol?
It is something different that in my mandatory subjects had something to do with a subject called “Computer Networks” where we were exposed to all the protocols, without ever taking a practical look at the way systems operated.
Imagine the sorry state of the laboratory – all 286 machines with some 386s sprinkled here and there – meant for the blue cats (those who suck up to the incompetent lecturers).
The bigger mess was not the laboratory, but the useless fellows who masqueraded like lecturers and worse still calling themselves, professors. The entire industry rejects were in the place – as they could have not made it anywhere. The college was also ready to take these jerks, as they were dime a dozen.
However this “decade since” is not about my college (or the school, as they call it in the US) – but about what I did in these 10 years at my disposal.
