I'm a software engineering student and I don't have much interest in graphics programming like you do (but I do still find it really cool, just not what I imagine myself doing). What are some things that you could suggest doing so that I can find my passion.
Right now I've been doing data mining, but it's meh. Any examples so that I can start learning them and training in them?
