We talked about basic programming in one my classes today. We basically just covered how to input matrices and vectors, and use them for solving problems. When we were finishing my professor said, "Any questions?" I asked, "So what's the most fun you can have with this program?" to which he replied, "Not a whole a lot, however it's satisfying to get the right answers and successfully program, and you can impress girls with your skills... (meanwhile he looks around the class and sees a few girls) --or guys."
"Hey baby, I want to put the alphabet in a long matrix and then enter a function to place U and I together." That's right, the programmers get allll 'dem ladies. I'll have to try this sometime and report my results.
