Myth Five – Although playing computer games is interesting, studying the knowledge behind them is boring.
Learning Computer Science is FUN because everything is "possible" within the virtual world of computers.
- Computer Science concentrates on the studies for the development of different types of reliable, efficient and secure software which is the "intelligence" of a computing system.
- Building software, especially powerful software, could be challenging but a very rewarding process as the execution of software by a computing system is similar to creating the world in the sense that the one created by a computing system is a "mini-virtual world". Many software developers enjoy the satisfaction of creating something based on their vision and creativity in the same way a movie producer creates a movie.
- Within this mini-virtual world, computer professionals have total control over the system and can define whatever they want the system to perform and resolve. Thus, within the virtual computer world, everything is "possible".
