Why You Should Learn To Code (And How To Actually Do It)

Why You Should Learn To Code (And How To Actually Do It)
In the Lost Interview with Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder said, “I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.” I like to think of coding as applied math and sciences because it teaches us an iterative approach to solving problems and testing out our ideas. While I don’t consider myself a coder, apart from HMTL/CSS I don’t code in my daily work, I did find that learning the basics of how to code on CodeAcademy has done wonders for improving my problem solving skills. Now that software is eating the world by automating all kinds of routine jobs, the basic knowledge of how lines of code create the digital worlds we explore every day is becoming a fundamental digital literacy. Coding isn’t particularly easy to learn but that’s exactly why it’s so valuable. Watch the video below to discover why coding is the new “superpower” that isn’t being taught in in 90% of schools. Fortunately, it has never been easier to learn how to code.

The 5 Craziest Ways Famous Actors Got into Character Some people might think that acting is the easiest job in the world: You get millions of dollars just to read lines that someone else wrote, and at the end of the day you get to relax in a swimming pool filled with cocaine. And that might be true, if you're a really shitty actor. But if you want to get good at it? Well, you have to be a little crazy. Actually, probably more than a little ... #5. For the casual moviegoer, Tom Cruise's versatility as an actor ranges from cocky, attractive action hero in Mission: Impossible to cocky, attractive action hero in Top Gun, while some also remember him in his standout role as a cocky, attractive action hero in Minority Report.

Game programming for beginners In these series of tutorials I will explain new java concepts of an intermediate level (threads, AWT, Swing, etc.) and basic concepts for game programming (game loop, FPS, sprite, etc). My idea is that these tutorials are useful both for those who want to program games, as for those who, with a basic or intermediate level in java, want to learn and improve java programming concepts in an entertaining way. Games in Java Until very recently, professional games have been developed in C or C++. I hope, with this series of tutorials, I can motivate you to step into the world of java programming and in particular into game programming. The game: Mini Tennis In this series of tutorials we will developed from scratch a version of one of the most famous games. This game is not meant to be the next most sold game but just a platform from which to teach and maybe inspire someone to be the next most succesful developer in the world ;) Index

Christopher Columbus was awful (but this other guy was not) Sources: All of the information in this essay came from A People's History of the United States, by Howard Zinn, and Lies My Teacher Told Me, by James W. Loewen, both of which uses primary sources such as eyewitness accounts, journal entries, and letters from Christopher Columbus himself. A very important note about Bartolomé de las Casas and the African slave trade This issue keeps coming up and, despite my footnotes, I keep seeing commentary about it so I'm going to address it here. I soon repented and judged myself guilty of ignorance. I know that the discovery of the New World means a lot of different things to a lot of different cultures. But please, oh please do not call it Columbus Day. Less than a year after the publication of this comic, Columbus Day was renamed to Indigenous People's Day in Seattle.
