Getting an unclear error message can be really frustrating. How can we make them better? The project js-better-errors aims to do just that. We are looking for input from the wider JavaScript community!

I was not thinking about approval. Dev communities are great but ultimately they run on the energy of people who do a lot of unpaid work to keep it running. While universities who are funded fail to teach students.

I wonder if there is a similar agency here with people who have the experience and expertise of the field. 🤔

Yeah. Sure. You also described a bit of that work in your article. I'd be interested how you got the university on board. Because I see a lot of community work is done my people in their free time. Which sometimes leads to burn out.

You're right. Also a big problem I guess for countries like Malaysia is that the top talent gets recruited away after university to go to global north countries like US. So it may be hard to maintain a local community.

I am very attached to the topic because I almost dropped out as well. And it was only with the support and help of my Berlin community that I am still here. and many more people who invested their private time in my education.

If they don’t have a network? If they study in a rural area?

There are schools that try to do better but we see similar problems there. Some of my professors also said that it is the students' responsibility to search for opportunities outside of the university. But how can students do that if they have no access to the industry?

BUT: We need computer and data scientists! So why would you filter? Instead of getting everybody excited and on-board? I really liked your sentence: “Every student deserves to be exposed to that pool of opportunity and culture of opportunity-taking”!

In Germany we have the this term of “sieving” which means filtering out “non-brilliant” people in the first semester. That IMO doesn’t help at all and fosters fixed mindset instead of growth mindset, which you described as crucial. People drop out feeling like a complete failure.

So consequently, drop out rates are at 50% in Germany for computer science after the *first* semester! (Numbers from on request from Sorry, it’s in German but just to prove the numbers are correct.)
