I planned on taking Introduction to Computer Programming with C++ at my local community college, but realized that I was too late to sign up. Throughout the summer, I have been learning to program C++ from YouTube videos and was wondering if that is worth writing for college apps. So far I spent around 5 hours a week just practicing programming. I attended two UC college seminar and they suggested to write what you did during the summer. My volunteer program and my internship was cancelled, so I have been volunteering for different pop up pantries and take a community college class.0 replies
