On Thursday, we’re going to have one of our most popular days of class, the day we talk about coding
First, check out the sweet life of coders in Silicon Valley.
And how important coding is to the future of our economy.
Next, to get a taste of what computer science is all about read chapter 1 of “Introduction to Computing: Explorations in Language, Logic and Machines” by David Evans of the University of Virginia (my alma mater).
Now, here is the really fun part. After doing all of this. You are going to sign up at http://www.codecademy.com/ and spend two hours on the site. Take a screenshot of where you get after two hours, post that on your blog and write about the experience for your blog post of the day. Trust me, you’re going to have some fun. Hopefully this other video will motivate you, too.
Have a great weekend!
