    really all you need to know about the american health care system is that there’s a popular tv series where a man turns to cooking industrial quantities of crystal meth in order to pay his hospital bills

  6. Announcing Code Studio!

    codeorg:

    I’m proud to announce the launch of Code Studio, Code.org’s new open-source learning platform designed to teach students the basics of computer science, starting as early as kindergarten. 

    The Code.org vision is to bring computer science to every student in every school and today marks our latest step towards that vision.

    We believe passionately that every child who has an opportunity to discover the world around them through a smartphone should also be given the learning capabilities and tools to build their own app. Code Studio enables even our youngest students to learn to build a basic animation or app in elementary school, and then share it to a friend’s phone within minutes.

    The Code Studio tutorials enable students to cover programming topics such as repeat loops, conditionals, and functions, as well as broader concepts such as how the internet works, or the role of digital citizenship in modern society. Code Studio expands on Code.org’s previous online tutorials which have already been used by over 30,000 classroom teachers and tens of millions of students. Any student can sign up for the beginner courses at http://studio.code.org.

    Within Code Studio, we’ve developed Play Lab, where elementary students can create and send apps or animations directly to a cell phone, just by typing in the phone number. This is a first in education for kids, made possible through a collaboration with Twilio.

    To help new teachers integrate the system into their classrooms, we are also launching free, one-day professional development workshops in more than 60 cities throughout the U.S., aiming to prepare 10,000 teachers to integrate Code Studio into their classrooms. Any elementary school teacher in the US can sign up for a local workshop at http://code.org/k5.

    We can’t wait for students to start learning with the new Code Studio. Try it out!

    founder, Code.org

  9. Anonymous said: I've started checking your blog back in the 90's before you were with VA Linux. I'M interested to know what primary and secondary OS's you use nowadays and what apps for Text editing, IRC etc.... Also where do you hang out in IRC nowadays if at all..

    I use OS X for my desktop mostly these days, probably for about 8 years now.  it’s unixy enough for me, and I spend most of my time in terminal emulators and Macvim.  Apps I use regularly are:

    • Macvim (most of my code editing here)
    • Textual (irc)
    • Sublime Text (mostly I use this as a pasteboard for various things I am keeping track of)
    • iTunes (I know, I know)
    • XCode (the rest of my code editing here - since I’ve started doing iOS and OS X applications)
    • Excel / Powerpoint (because what PHB would be complete without these two tools)
    • Chrome (web browsing)
    • PaintCode (this is a pretty awesome util if you want to do code based drawing on osx/ios)
    • Querious (a handy SQL tool)
    • DB Monitor (a handy monitoring tool written by yours truly)

    I do still go on irc semi-regularly.  you can find me in #gah on freenode though I’m more often idle than not :)
