08h00 – After sleeping 5 hours there we were, heading towards Redondo. Me and Ana were invited to give a talk at a local high school about the Computer Engineering course.
After a general introduction, I talked about what professional opportunities exist nowadays. Some of my university colleagues are now at [[http://www.ydreams.com|YDreams]], [[http://www.siemens.com|Siemens]], [[http://www.ibm.com|IBM]], [[http://www.edisoft.pt|Edisoft]], etc.. and so I tryed to pass the message that, at least in IT, the job opportunities aren’t as bad as in other areas. I then talked about Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Sergey Brin and other famous people in the IT industry. I finished by saying that if they follow this course they also have the opportunity to start a company with less money that in other industries. Other speakers included a biologist and a constructions engineer, but as we talked later with the professor that invites us, the kids were really thrilled in the end with computer engineering!
