CS isnt about the languages themselves, that is trivial.
Basically covered in the first or second semester.
You become experienced and skilled when you're passionate
Sure, imperative languages are all mostly the same, and easy to
learn once you know the basics (C++ being an exception).
Learning frameworks takes time, but there are too many
frameworks for anyone to master, and they are quickly outdated.
So the only knowledgebase that isnt getting outdated are the
models from CS.
Wirth puts it nicely, it is all about algorithms, data structures
learning how to apply them to any language.
