Interesting Links 22 July 2013

The big thing for me last week was the annual CSTA conference. A great professional development experience as always. Almost 300 computer science educators were there. And they announced the dates and location for next year’s event. The dates for CSTA 2014 are July 14 & 15 2014 at near Chicago

I haven’t really blogged about the CSTA conference. I was pretty busy giving two talks and while I saw a bit of it I really didn't feel like I saw enough to blog. Fortunately a couple of other people have written some good summaries.
