What's the best Uni and course to take to be a programmer? Considering Physics, but everyones bitching that I should take ComSci or SoftEng
depends,OP. I'd pick physics and math for myself, but it's easier to find a job with cs.
Personally, I picked cs, didn't regret it because I love it more than the previous two, but you should rather pick what you love. You'll find an ok job anyway.
Grad physics student here. In my experience you can probably take plenty of programming courses as a physics student, if that's your thing. So if you also like physics/math it's a decent option.
However the type of programming you'll learn is a bit different from (what I think) most CS students get. You'll mostly be learning about writing simulations in Fortran and learning a bit numerical analysis instead of developing conventional programs.
Also there will not be a lot of handholding in general, so be prepared to just get a very general assignments and then figuring out how to implement it in whatever language yourself.
Programming is part problem solving part experience. maths and physics will help with the first part. The second part requires hundreds or thousands of hours and you only get it by programming.
Softeng (+ minor physics) here.
I wish I'd just gone for computational science instead of software engineering, the latter fucking sucks and its curriculum was mostly just stale OOP and stiff enterprise-tier development processes.
