Computer Science HS Assignment Reference

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm currently a high school student taking a computer science course. One of my current assignments involves me finding someone currently working in the computer sciences field. I need to find information about their work and their education, and have proof of contact. Was wondering if there was anybody out there willing to help me out! 

The questions are: 

1) What does your typical day look like? (What does your work involve you doing. How long do you work. What kinds of problems/tasks do you encounter?) 

2) What education did you take in order for you to acquire your job (Degrees, University, Other extra-curricular programs) 

Please feel free to go as in-depth as you would like with your responses. I will also request that you would link me the website of your company, along with some personal information: name, email - just as proof that you really do work in the computer sciences field and that you are not made up for the sake of the assignment! 

Thanks in advance, I will be waiting for your reply! 

P.S. - Bonus points if you work in Ontario, Canada!

I am not sure there is anyone here working in computer science. You might like to try and contact your local university? Look through their department list and email a few people who seem relevant.

What education did you take in order for you to acquire your job (Degrees, University, Other extra-curricular programs) 

 

Most of the higher paid jobs $2,000,000.00+ require a university level qualification in a related field such as computer science, electrical engineering, network engineering etc. Technical support tends not to require a degree but supporting documentation may be required such as evidence you did specific online tutorials etc.

Depends on wheter I am working remote or not. Since I work as a freelance consultant at the moment much of my work is remote and highly varied. Generally I do network architecture designing scalable networks for my customers. Often this includes designing the wired telephone systems and email systems for an office, configuring public ip addresses, managing servers, setting up windows networking like you would most likely have in school. Often the client has a specific design or system they would like to have implemented for instance asterisk, opendigitalradio, plesk etc. My current contract involves designing a dab multiplex for the state radio broadcaster. The system was required to generate a 20Kw radio signal minimum and contained in a box that could be mass produced.

My brother on the other hand is a software developer works in a factory office full time but can work from home when he is not required in the office which is most of the time. His office runs an agile work environment with perforce for version control and docker for builds. They design enterprise storage solutions for large companies which usually cost $1,000,000 minimum. He has to do all remote work from his work laptop. Generally his work includes being online when the technical support team emails him about an issue a customer is having then he would have to solve the issue and email the technical support team with his solution. He sometimes gets specific projects to work on where he would be working with the international team which would require him to go into the office to have a meeting in the conference call room with people from America, India, China, Ireland etc.

I don't see how you would need my name since most high school students don't know what perforce, docker etc are. My brother works for Dell Technologies.
