I'm going back to school for the first time in almost ten years. And this will be a very different experience. Last time, I went for a degree in culinary arts, which involved mostly long hours in kitchens, with some lecture classes. Now I'm going back for a certificate in database design and administration. Lots of sitting-down lecture classes, with, eventually, some computer lab classes.
This quarter is all prerequisites, with two math classes, a class on Windows applications, and something called Introduction to Information Systems Concepts, with a description that sounds like it hasn't been updated since the 80s. I only hope the class has been. I don't expect to enjoy this quarter much. Fortunately, being summer quarter, it's short.
Classes start tomorrow, so don't expect any posts this week. Give me a chance to get settled in.
