1) “I was just convinced that everyone was going to be coding on the computer all the time, not really interacting with people,” says student Angelita Graves, who majored in psychology and picked up a computer science minor her senior year. “I wish I understood that it is way more interactive. I do so much team building here.”   Why do you think there is so much team building going on when it comes to building apps?
