Strengthen Your Skills

As a computer science major it is important to strengthen your tech skills.  Just like musicians and athletes, it is important to practice so that you get better.  The Computer Science Department recommends that you do at least 1 hour of day of "tech" at least 6 days a week.  This includes during your semester breaks.  Build something for fun, learn something new and share it with others.

Here are some resources that can help get you started.  If you found a resource that you enjoyed, please send it to a CS faculty member so we can add it to this list.
