Comp 110 Lilly Whalen

Why Computer Science?

Before taking 110, I had no idea what a line of code looked like. Kris' and the UTA's enthusiasm and passion for computer science made me feel more comfortable with its unfamiliarity and I eventually fell in love with everything about it. Programming is creative, flexible, and structured. Once you learn a few basic concepts, you can apply them in so many different ways to solve a multitude of problems. As a part of the UTA team, I hope to share my passion for computer science with other students so that you may feel the same way too!
