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 Kit 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.

Talking with George Dyson about the Maketer Movement

hwms.coverart As we were getting started, George was one of the few who accepted the idea that fictional characters might interview real people.  So it only made sense for Anna and Rohit to kayak to the office of the great kayak maker. The Maker Movement. It’s hot in the tech world. How far does it go? Is there a Maker Movement for Handbags? Anna & Rohit explore with Special Guest George Dyson.

Moving to Seattle (Series I)

hwms.coverart We didn’t move to Seattle.  We thought it would be cute to set s series there.  Office in a houseboat.  A houseboat with a basement.  Slugs.  Techies everywhere. 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.” [16405]Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
