|Having never done well in college, I did not complete my degree when I was there.|
I'm curious about the best way that other people have found to learn theory or ideas that have made them way better programmers. Especially things they have done on their own time, or at least outside of college.
I've built complex systems and user interfaces, but I couldn't tell you about quick-sort algorithms, or sieves, or the best way to build a fibonacci sequence; I wonder if my programming is objectively worse because of it.
