Step forward and make things happen. Don't wait.
Especially in Computer Science, you cannot be passive and "just be filled up with computer science" You must be active and engaged in your learning. Just code. Just code. Just code.

Work Together. Because without us all, we're nothing.
Computer Science is a collaborative discipline. Everyone needs to help everyone else. Make sure you are not just a "taker". You must also be a "giver" to a community. What community have you helped today?
