Beginning of A Learning Adventure

Asif Ahmed

I am a recent graduate of USC and over the summer I realized that there is a world of knowledge out there and that I want to constantly be learning. We waste a lot of time watching TV, checking Facebook, or surfing Reddit, but what if we used at least half of this wasted time trying to learn and build our skills?

People say that you learn something new everyday. Well, I’m here to prove that and document what I learn each day. This blog will serve as a way for me to record my progress but also as a way for trying to explain what I learned to the reader. I feel that we learn better when we try to teach. Most my posts will be focused around computer science topics. With computer science, however, reading must be accompanied by doing for true learning. Coding and practicing programming is necessary to get a full understanding of computer science concepts. I will also have other posts on productivity, websites for learning, and ways for the reader to contribute towards education in the world.

Today marks the beginning of a journey where I will learn (and teach) daily.
