That said I have a job I like already, and plan on using what I learned here.
Those 1000 with more time and drive to be the best probably are some of the best job candidates though. Plus chances are they do need a job after all.
Definitely learnt a lot, which surprised me because I did 3 classes that were based around AI and probability in my course. It has enlightened me a bit on the difference between a top of the range CS college and where I did my degree just it terms of how much ground can be covered and covered well.
