Interesting Links–18 August 2014

Seems like I spent all my time last week doing last minute tasks before school starts. Getting cars inspected and reregistered for example. And a haircut that my wife insisted, correctly, was overdue. Teachers at my school report back tomorrow. I’ll see students on Wednesday!  I spent hardly any time on line last week. That showed in a shortage of my own posts last week and a brief set of links today.

Favorite quote found on Facebook this week. “Without requirements or design, programming is the art of adding bugs to an empty text file.” -- Louis Srygley

Ray Chambers has a nice blog post about Multi-Dimensional Data Structure – Example

Mike Zamansky wrote over the weekend about the crew (the teachers) of his summer CS program. The Crew

Ever CS and ICT teacher I talk to has stories of digital technology knowledge that is just a thin veneer

Someone sent me to a link to an interesting infographic and set of information about The Raspberry Pi: The Tiny Computer That Could
