Spent the day tweaking my SweetCron based frontpage lifestream (nakikiuso as usual :P ). The theme’s currently a mix between Tarot and CCG frame templates. If all goes well, I should be able to tweak that to use more xxxHolic and Persona motifs.

It’s already 10 PM so I’ll keep this short.

If you’re a Computer Science student, you should at least learn the following before graduating regardless if it’s in your college’s curriculum or not:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • basic photo-editing/image manipulation

Trust me on this.

    Just wondering, how important is the photo-editing/designing skill in this field?

      Unless you are a systems/embedded developer, you will be dealing with user interfaces. That is where basic design knowledge comes in to play.

      Also, when dealing with user interfaces, whether it’s a web page or a mobile app, you will be dealing with image assets. Even with dedicated designers in your team, being able to know how to do basic stuff like cropping, resizing, adjusting levels, optimizing compression, making minor edits, etc. can save a lot of time.
