  4. 4. You Alumni 1 Professor 1 Alumni 2 I was wondering if I would ever apply cs203 in real life… Hey, I graduated 3 years ago. Last week in my project I was applying what I learnt in my cs203. While I was a student I had the same doubt. Hi Professor, I recently realized that students need little bit more on practical knowledge in CS203. Can you add some real life examples into it … I am happy to hear you were able to apply theory I taught in CS203.
