Computer science (CS) has emerged in last 40+ years to be a branch of science on its own. The concerns in CS involve all the way from fundamentals of mathematics to designing usable social networking apps. Since CS is a relatively new science, it has developed its own culture of doing research that is quite distinct from the other fields of research. In this talk, we will discuss key aspects of the culture and how to adapt oneself to be a great computer scientist.
