  • Learning the low level nuts and bolts of how computers and OSes work, i.e. the lowest possible level, can I build my own hardware or OS?
  • Or the highest possible level, i.e. subjects like formal algorithms, machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc.
  • Those other options are nice, but I enjoy prototyping and experimenting with all the things, broadening my horizons.
