Interesting Links 1 December 2014

Well it was an interesting week for us last week. You may have heard that much of the east coast of the US was hit by a big snowstorm Wednesday – the night before Thanksgiving. My area was hit pretty good. We never lost power but many of my friends did. Some for days. At least it wasn’t as cold as it could have been. I’m very thankful it was not worse. Several of this week’s links are about Computer Science Education week and the Hour of Code.

Closely related to that last link, Deepak Kumar@bmcdeepak sent me a link to a book chapter of his about artificial intelligence for games like Tic-Tac-Toe (PDF) that is really great.
Microsoft is challenging people to learn coding with hour of code. Here’s how you can get started: Microsoft resources for Hour of Code
