Think Like a Computer Science Professor

By freeCodeCamp.org
Published: Jul 20, 2022

freeCodeCamp.org See how to think like a computer science professor. You will observe Radu’s thought process as he codes a project for the first time. Many tutorials demonstrate how to build something that the instructor has already fully planned out beforehand. But in this video, you learn what really goes into building a project from scratch. And he does it all without even referencing the Internet.

Radu Mariescu-Istodor has a PhD in computer science. He teaches computer science at a university as well as on his YouTube channel.
