Why You Should Learn To Code (And How To Actually Do It) - DIY Genius
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.

10 Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice) I spent most of yesterday afternoon working on a paper I’m co-writing. It was one of those days when the writing came easy. I was moving from topic to topic, but then I realized that I was reaching too far backward – I was explaining things which I shouldn’t have had to explain to the audience I was trying to reach. When I first started writing, one of the pieces of advice that I heard was that you should always imagine that you are writing to a particular person. It gets your juices going – you’re automatically in an explanatory state of mind and you know what you can expect from your audience.

How to learn more in 2014 Albert Einstein once said, “Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” It’s one thing to be aware of what’s new in web design, quite another to be in the thick of it actually producing usable designs that solve problems. To keep up in this industry, You need a heightened sense of curiousity and a desire to keep learning. As a user-centered designer, I literally spend half of my days meeting with stakeholders, peers, and subject matter experts. Stories about famous serial killers and murder cases at the Crime Library. on truTV.com The Frankford area of Philadelphia was once a town older than the City of Brotherly Love itself. At one time, it was a prosperous area, but by 1980 it had become a crime-ridden slum populated by prostitutes, junkies, and small businesses struggling to survive. This was the area that Sylvester Stallone selected as the setting for his film Rocky. It was here in 1985 where the first victim was found in a railroad yard. Helen Patent was nude from the waist down and she had been posed in a sexually provocative position, with her legs open and her blouse pulled up to expose her breasts. She was 52 when she died, and while it was clear to the police that she had been stabbed many times, it took an autopsy to determine the official cause and manner of death.
