"I maintain that Seneca is the best school in Canada for software developers, and I'm proud of being a BSD graduate." Andrew Smith December 2010

"I'm not sure why I'm writing this; I don't really have any questions or need any feedback. I guess I'm just overwhelmed by what I just experienced. I have played a game called Stepmania for over 6 years, which is open source. In an interest to put my own features into the game, I just opened up the source code for the first time. Suddenly, everything we've learned in DPS901, all the systems courses for BTS, everything... it all makes sense now. I used to think programming was easy, and that in my current state, I probably could do 80-90% of what a professional could. 800 files, each with hundreds to thousands of lines of COMPLEX code that make BTP300 look like a joke. Upon seeing what a finished, professional product is like... suddenly the task of being a REAL programmer has taken shape. It's not as easy as I thought. I guess I'm kind of glad; easy was getting boring. :)" Graeme Smyth October 2010
