Interesting Links 14 July 2014

Another week another trip. Last one of the summer though. I am at the CSTA Annual Conference today and tomorrow. If you are as well look me up. I’ve wearing my hat. Also take a look at the Code Hunt Contest for CSTA 2014 Attendees from Microsoft and maybe win a Surface Pro 2.

Here or not you can participate virtually in the National CS Principles Summit on Wednesday.

An interesting look at what we may be doing wrong trying to get more women in Computer Science How not to attract women to coding: Make tech pink -  via @SFGate

I found a new CS Teacher blog Coding 2 Learn by Marc Scott @Coding2Learn and added it to my Computer Science Education blog roll

Congrats Ohio! You're the 23rd US state to allow computer science to count toward high school graduation.
