In an ill-advised attempt to understand the workings of the universe, and with that the nature of existence, I obtained a Bachelor's in Physics from Cal Poly
. On the other hand, perhaps more developers should take solid-state physics. They might appreciate how amazing it is that with enough layers of abstraction, electrons wiggling around in crystalline structures become Youtube.
Of course, I eventually decided it would be a good idea to get a real job, and to that end I studied Perl, Java, PHP, Assembly Language, and a bit of Android dev and German at Santa Monica College and Ohlone College in what happily proved to be a better-fated attempt to become more useful.
