comment Do you count a Masters in CS as a negative?
If I were to fork your question into another question, I'd ask what work-related challenges do Masters grads face in comparison to other programmers on average.

comment I still can't figure out how to program?
I wouldn't suggest a large project, but github presents many many projects which are just a few files and very easy code.

@Thorbjorn definitely, but its something I wish I would have done more of when I first started. As with anything, I think you learn a lot just by osmosis and diving in head first. At the minimum you'll get a better measure of whats out there that you don't know/understand - something far more valuable when you are first starting out and longing to know where to set your goals and what to work towards.

an alternative to getting directly involved is to fork a project's source and try and fix tickets on your own branch and just simply leave it at that. The values of reading code written and reviewed by multiple people, project structures that are well organized and can serve as templates for your own creations, and understanding how the collaboration process works are numerous. Just observe the public parts, and muck with the code privately.

comment What are important things to remember when reengineering a legacy application?
i got your back on this one. Im not sure in this case a rewrite is avoidable. I've taken your advice to heart and tried to start thinking of ways we can gradually transition between the two and if its possible to just refactor and adapt the existing codebase. My gut tells me that by the time we finish "refactoring," though, we will have rewritten most of the application anyway. The nice thing about this though, will be that it will help us maintain existing business logic.
