Message to the 2010 HICAP Graduates
Thursday, June 24, 2010
I would like to thank you for coming to class through your pain, after chemo, after waiting in the sun so long that you almost had heat stroke trying to get here on time; and also for coming to class after doctors' appointments just to capture the last few minutes of knowledge.
I would like to thank you for believing that this boring technical language will someday be useful. Most of all, I would like to thank each of you for achieving and surpassing my expectations.
A special acknowledgement to those who've had family and health issues and could not continue with us; remember, we are here when you are ready. My mission is to empower you with the understanding that you control this bit based system that we call computer. Your coursework over the summer is to remain hungry for knowledge. Most of all, I thank you for being you--HICAP ISOC-NY.
