Advice for CS Majors

In my recent journies surfing the web, I have come across a great blog. Joel Spolsky has some awesome ideas, and though reading his blog entry today made me feel inadequate as a budding programmer, it was interesting to see what a person in the industry had to say about what one should do while studying CS in college.

Here is his short list:
1. Learn how to write before graduating.
2. Learn C before graduating.
3. Learn microeconomics before graduating.
4. Don't blow off non-CS classes just because they're boring.
5. Take programming-intensive courses.
6. Stop worrying about all the jobs going to India.
7. No matter what you do, get a good summer internship.

I have a lot to do.
