What do computer science and ballroom dancing have to do with each other? Nothing!
My point is that I think computer science and information technology in particular can be used to enhance or add value to any other industry, career, or education. A dancing robot you say? Maybe not a robot, but there are certainly aspects of IT that can play a role in the dance industry, from choreography and video editing to the more mundane tasks as running a dance studio.
Individuals with a unique background in a field other than IT can bring tremendous value to both the technology industry in general and to those industries in particular.
I deal a lot with health care, and some of the best medical software companies are run by physicians that also understand IT; not by “techies” that also happen to understand the medical profession.
