17125: How do we learn to code?

hwms.coverart

We’re actually asking the bigger question. How do we learn anything? Do we learn form experts? From Teachers? From each other? There is a lot of evidence that we learn technical skills from each other, from peers who know little more than we do. Sure, there are classes and textbooks and formal lessons. However, the computer field has given us many examples that we learn the most from people who are learning just like us.

The week we introduce Katerena Kuksenok, our in house expert on learning to code. Dr. Kuksenok is a graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle and is now employed by SAP in Berlin. Her work looks at the processes we use to teach ourselves to code.

She’s energetic, she is, optimistic and completely convinced that her emotional and organizational intelligence will lead her to a stellar career in the technology industry. As played by Sarah Corbyn Woolf, she has shown herself to be a bit of a title hound (and who among us is completely free from that fault, and has provided us with an interesting way to probe the challenges that 20 somethings face as they enter the business world.

16405: Seattle & the Problems of an Innovative Organization

hwms.coverart

This fall, the podcast moves to Seattle. Such moves keep us flexible, agile, ready to face any task. Well, perhaps any task. There is this problem with slugs. However, we’re in Seattle to consider the attributes of an innovative organization. In the process, we’re looking at four attributes: Vision, Refinement, Socialization, and Decision-making. But to do that, we have to settle into our office. A local property manager is some help (though not much) and our hardworking intern puts down her box of material to deliver the lyrical speech “Rohit that Slug had a mother.”
