USA Computing Olympiad What every computer science major should know Portfolio versus resume Having emerged from engineering and mathematics, computer science programs take a resume-based approach to hiring off their graduates. A resume says nothing of a programmer's ability. Every computer science major should build a portfolio. A portfolio could be as simple as a personal blog, with a post for each project or accomplishment. Contributions to open source should be linked and documented. A code portfolio allows employers to directly judge ability. GPAs and resumes do not. Professors should design course projects to impress on portfolios, and students, at the conclusion of each course, should take time to update them. Examples Technical communication Lone wolves in computer science are an endangered species. Modern computer scientists must practice persuasively and clearly communicating their ideas to non-programmers. Unfortunately, this is not something fixed with the addition of a single class (although a solid course in technical communication doesn't hurt). Java

Doxygen This chapter covers two topics: How to put comments in your code such that doxygen incorporates them in the documentation it generates. This is further detailed in the next section.Ways to structure the contents of a comment block such that the output looks good, as explained in section Anatomy of a comment block. A special comment block is a C or C++ style comment block with some additional markings, so doxygen knows it is a piece of structured text that needs to end up in the generated documentation. For Python, VHDL, Fortran, and Tcl code there are different commenting conventions, which can be found in sections Comment blocks in Python, Comment blocks in VHDL, Comment blocks in Fortran, and Comment blocks in Tcl respectively. Comment blocks for C-like languages (C/C++/C#/Objective-C/PHP/Java) Having more than one brief or detailed description is allowed (but not recommended, as the order in which the descriptions will appear is not specified). As you can see doxygen is quite flexible. !
