comment How important is Discrete Mathematics for a Computer Scientist?
@Thomas Owens: The degree name is Software Engineering. I chose that one because it provides the freedom to actually focus on Computer Science (there isn't a specific degree for that at my university...)

comment Is it reasonable to concentrate on one topic of CS for one semester at university?
At my university, I can choose courses from a rather long list. Anyway, the question is not really related to my specific school; it's rather asking about whether to concentrate on one topic for a while or do all of them for most of the time.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm in my Master's.

comment interview for an internship but I think I may be unprepared
@DeadMG: True again, BUT: OP is a beginner - what help is it telling a beginner that he's not a C++ master? If the company wants someone that knows about that stuff, they shouldn't be interviewing a student that just attended beginner's classes.

While your point for sure is valid, I think the answer is a bit harsh since OP is obviously a beginner. In my opinion it's more important for beginners to be able to deliver working - but not necessarily good - code.

comment What would you do if your client required you not to use object-oriented programming?
@Ramhound: True, but the author could still earn a bad reputation if he accepts the task and then can't deliver what the client expected.

+1 for "you might just learn something you didn't expect"!, BUT: If the OP doesn't have much experience in functional programming and the client expects a good and cheap solution, it would be rather risky to dive into a new way of solving problems.

comment Studying parallel programming
I already did basic network and database courses and had to deal (just a little) with concurrency issues. Apart from that: is that really all?
