It’s computer science education week and that has me thinking about what I’d like to tell students about computer science. So I decided to record something on the subject.
The short version is that 38 years after the life changing experience that writing my first computer program was I am more excited about computer science than I was then. And that is saying something. This is my first experience trying to do a video cast but since a lot of students don’t read this seemed like a good time and a good topic to try it out. I hope you like it.
Some links that I talk about for reference:
What kind of personallity has that much fun with programming for 30 some odd years? I don't know but I has the same problem. Programming and weird puzzles. I am terrible at both but they sure are fun.
