I did history in undergrad with some math coursework (through linear algebra, ODEs, real analysis). I worked for a bit and am taking an intro CS class, focused on programming in Python.
I'm really enjoying the class and, although it's not particularly challenging, find myself fairly good at it. I'm going to do this program in the fall/spring (it's a 2-semester program):
A few questions:
1) I'm hoping to get a better background in CS/programming so I can get involved at a startup and really contribute. Any thoughts on how much more (beyond PAC) I'd need to take class-wise to do this?
2) What other sorts of careers are out there for someone interested in CS/math/optimization kinda stuff? Really don't enjoy finance fwiw.
Thanks in advance,
