I’m doing a vocation paper for my last year of high school, and I wanted to do it on computer scientists, specifically front-end devs. Got any good interviews (video or text) of some of the leaders? I’d appreciate if you’d share. :-)
I’ve done Computer Science, not for web development though but just because I like programming. The curriculum included courses about networking, databases, computer graphics, Java (which can run on servers), all which can be used for web development. Media & Knowledge Engineering (part of Computer Science) even covers parts of obvious front-end related stuff because it’s all about human-machine interaction.
Sure for most web development you don’t need it, and I wouldn’t even suggest it (I’m a drop-out after bachelor :P )… but web development can definitely be part of Computer Science if you want it to be.
