Interesting Links 11 July 2016

Yes I’m late with this week’s interesting links. In my defense I have been extremely busy the last four or five days. Last Thursday and Friday were the CSTA Board meetings. Saturday was helping to set up for the CSTA conference. Sunday and today have been the first days of the CSTA Conference. With over 500 attendees the place is hopping. I’ll have a post or two about the conference later in the week after its over. In the mean time if you are not at the conference but are on Twitter follow the #CSTA16 hashtag for a lot of great stuff going on.

But for now a few links including some things I have learned at the conference.

I learned about this How-To: Papercraft Enigma Machine at one of the workshops at the CSTA Conference. This link may be the most retweeted link I have ever tweeted. Looks like fun.
