I'm John Fish, and this video is a day in my life as a Harvard sophomore. I'm a computer science concentrator at Harvard college that makes videos, video essays, and vlogs about my life.

This semester, I'm studying computer science, film, psychology, and the politics of nature. In this video, I talk to Steven Pinker at office hours (the author of Enlightenment Now and other books, featured on the Joe Rogan Experience, etc).

Day in the Life of a Computer Science Student | UoG

This is what I'm doing when I'm not posting YouTube videos. For a change I decided to film what I do at school, and show you guys some actual problems that software developers have to solve.

There's not much content on YouTube which actually shows real software dev, usually people just talk and don't really explain what they're doing. I want to take it upon myself to show what actually happens when writing software and if there's enough interest I can make videos as I am programming some new personal projects. On those I can actually show you guys code, and do whatever I want.

What year / major / school?
- Second year computer science at university of guelph

What language?
- Almost everything for my assignments is written in C, I've had one Java course. Personally I know Java the most, then C, some web stuff for my website (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap), as well as R for stats courses. Oh and assembly haha that was fun.

How old is u?
- 19

Where u at?
- Canada

Why did u quit ur gaming channel?
- I want to be productive and create cool shit. Been working on many interesting side projects that I usually keep separate from YouTube but thinking about making videos about them. Gaming videos feel like a dead end for me creatively.

When can you post another video?
- When I'm not a slave to the education system (if everyone sent me a nice sum of money I could start my own company and be set, in the meantime subscribe and follow all my social medias will help)

Can I see some code / what's next??
- ye look at my github (link under socials)

A Day in the Life of a Software Engineering Student | ConU

I wanted to take you guys into my journey to give you a broad overview of what its like to study software engineering. As a second year student, I have many things I’d love to share with you video-graphically. Why do I say video-graphically? As some of my viewers know, I have been active on Instagram for the past year, documenting my journey as I become a software engineer and make my way into owning my own business. With all this being said, I think sharing those experiences through YouTube would definitely be a nice way of motivating people to accomplish their studies and goals.

About Me
/** ————————————————————— **/
How old am I?

Where was I born?
Valencia, Venezuela

Where do I live?
Montreal, Canada

Current year of Software Engineering?
2nd year out of 4 since Engineering is a 4 year degree.

Favourite Programming Language?

First programming language?

Current interest in software?
Web development (used to be iOS)

My biggest obsession?
Cars and football

Why did you start YouTube?
Throughout the year, my followers on Instagram wanted me to start a YouTube channel. Along the way, I fell in love with creating content and motivating people to achieve
their goals through my daily grind. I think YouTube is the perfect place to expand that and build on top of it.

How often will I post?
As often as I can, depending on how busy school and work gets.

A Day in the Life of a Broke Computer Science Student 2019

Plans for April video:
Hey, I'm Max, and I challenged myself to document my life for 1 year (a little more) as a (almost) graduated Computer Science student - challenge started February 2019 ending May 2020.

This video shows a day in my life. I did it on a Sunday, that's when I have some extra time - I decided to spend it on the video.

Apologies for the quality, I'm recording with what I currently have, but this summer I'll be upgrading to something better :)

Hope you enjoy!

Okay... it's actually 3 days in the life of a computer science student but I needed the familiar title haha. I was meant to do a day but then I ended up spending most of it sitting in front of my computer staring at a screen (classic!). That didn't result in enough content so I extended the vlog, hope you understand lol! Let me know if you enjoyed this video and leave any questions or comments down below! Lots of love and thanks for watching. It means a lot. x
