Code Tasting: Data and Algorithms

Ready for today's virtual chat with a #coding expert? TOPIC: Code Tasting: Data and Algorithms. Learning to code has become a phenomenon - and we couldn't be more elated! However, it can be discouraging to see that many virtual programs require at LEAST a weeks’ long commitment, and #bootcamps/ academic classes cost a lot. Research in #ComputerScience education suggests that having even a minimal background before taking the dive into formal instruction is beneficial, as is getting the right start. Ursula Wolz, PhD, has been teaching introductory coding for over 30 years using innovate classroom techniques. She invented a conceptual model called ‘DAHLIA’ that stands for ‘Data’, ‘Algorithms’, ‘Heuristics’, ‘Logic’, ‘Interface’ and ‘Abstraction' which we'll be covering virtually, on PowerToFly! This three-part series introduces these concepts in three lessons as well as suggestions for further work. Using the P5.js online framework, participants will dive into code within five minutes of the first session. A ‘homework’ challenge will be given at the end of the session for those who want to take things further, along with access for time with Ursula if needed!

Taking Career Risks: Why Snap's Farnaz Azmoodeh Sees Her Career in Two-Year Cycles

Farnaz Azmoodeh used to dislike running. She was really, truly, actively not interested.

But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz. The same thing happened when she started making pottery: she says the first month was "terrible" as she struggled to shape the clay with no success but shares that she came to love the process of building after getting through an initial period of learning and adjusting.
