Andy Ko’s sabbatical research pivot into Computing Education

June 1, 2016 at 7:55 am Leave a comment

Great blog post from Andy Ko on why he’s shifting into computing education research.  I hope lots of researchers come to a similar realization — that computing education is valuable, hard, and interesting.

After I stepped down as AnswerDash CTO and begin my post-tenure sabbatical, it became clear I had to pivot my research focus. No more developer tools. No more studies of productivity. I’m now much less interested in accelerating developers’ work, and much more interested shaping how developers (and developers-in-training) learn and shape their behavior.
