After looking at colleges and preparing for life beyond academia, I have realized that I don't truly know what I want to do as a profession. I know I would like to do something with programming, but I'm not certain if I will get bored with just making software.
Here are a few projects I made that I liked doing...
-a rudimentary "siri" for the computer (java)
-arduino received serial information from python based gui in linux to make an led blink(python, arduino, bash) (simple, yet expandable)
-arduino transmitted serial information to control computer via tv remote and wii nunchuk (python, arduino, dos)
-rational route theorem calculator (vb, dos, java) (...It made my head hurt, but it taught me a lot, so I enjoyed it.)
After reading these examples, you might be able to see that I enjoy relaying data from the real world into and from a computer. If there was a job that would allow me to do similar things, but on a bigger scale, I believe I would thoroughly enjoy it.
So my question is, what job is right for me? And consequently, what majors/minors in college would be advised?
Thanks for your time!
