Interesting Links 13 July 2015

Usually I write these up on Sunday so it will be ready first thing in the morning on Monday. This week I am at the annual CSTA Conference and I was in networking events and a great workshop by Mark Guzdial and Barbara Ericson followed by some great discussions until it was past time to go to bed. So I put this together in the lobby of the conference hotel between more conversations. If you teach K-12 computer science and are not here I hope you’ll try and make the one next year. If you are here please make sure to find me and say hello.
