For undergrads

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 1:00 am

If you have good foundation in math and coding, you can pick up (almost) everything and compete with (almost) everybody and their brothers. So, take as many math and programming courses as possible, in particular those that will make you (actively) do things (e.g. projects) instead of just (passively) reading books and passing exams.

That is basically what I did as an undergrad (plus taking the swimming class so that I can access the school pool). I did not plan or think much beyond that. Life is simply too random to over-plan.


  1. hello,Mr.Wei. Do you think a undergrad who want to work in graphic area has to speed a lot of time in operating system?
    In my university, we have to learn much classes about operating system, and i am a little tired of that.
