So I'm just finishing up my first semester of university studying CompSci. We're supposed to start looking at internships around winter of next year so i wanted to get ahead and do something to make myself stand out, like a side project of sorts. Right now I have a simple blog im working on where I write about things I've learned. The blog itself will be updated/corrected whenever applicable and I'll basically share my understanding on certain computer science concepts. Right now i just have a post about what algorithms are.

Will a blog like this have any affect on anything i may want to apply to in the future?

Also, what type of side projects should i be looking into making with my limited skills? The only idea i could come up with is making a simple app by learning swift.

The Blog: Blog Link (Only accessible through the link at the moment which I have attached to my linkedIn profile.)
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
