We were done with everything and everybody in our AP group had 4.0's and above anyway so we were just bad as hell.
We just took college courses , applied for scholarships, and misbehaved.

Our grades/attendance and everything was in the school system.
Since my mom worked for the district she would see everything instantly.
Wasn't no skippin' class.

Not that surprising. Most IT related jobs don't require computer science degrees with the right certifications and experience.

My employer won't hire anyone for a technical position without a degree. Degrees are way too prevalent now. Besides they stress that they want engineers, not technicians; certifications aren't enough.

I think it is sad that Black folks are not taking advantege of the oppurtunities in this field. I must say .. in all these years I have never experienced workplace harrassment, racial problems etc I have worked at companies like DEC and IBM etc.
 


do you remember PROFS?

I hate that there aren't more women in the field and especially black women. I do see more black women these days  and hopefully it's not as difficult  now.

 I will never forget a meeting where I demo'ed a program I'd written for the client and after my presentation, a man asked me if my husband had taught me how to do that.  what??
