My dad pointed this this article, and it's a very interesting and informative read. I've got a lot of thoughts swimming around in my head on this topic, but I'm going to have to sit down with some dedicated time to hash them all out and give them voice.
This was an intense and fascinating CodeNewbie chat - there were points where it truly began to feel like the 140 character limit was holding a lot of people back from really getting into it. I don't mean that as a bad thing - this chat hopefully invited all of us CodeNewbies to a discussion that has the potential to generate incredible ideas and give us insight into a wide range of different perspectives on matters ranging from inclusivity in tech and striving towards a more meritocratic industry to the changing face of higher-level education in general.
I'm excited about this topic and can't wait to see where it takes us.
