Computer Science Education Had A Good Day In America | TechCrunch
A nice upbeat piece! I hadn’t talked about the Code.org video here — I recommend checking it out. (I will point out that Chris Bosh who “coded in college” according to the video, was at Georgia Tech for his one year in college.)
America’s elite institutions came out in full force for computer science education. First, the House of Representatives voted to update its traditional students arts competition to include a nationwide mobile apps competition. Then, to top off the day, the nation’s leading geeks, from Mark Zuckerberg to Bill Gates, helped launch a national nonprofit to encourage young programmers.
