Hello everyone, it’s that time of year when I start looking for interesting people to Skype with my CS class. Especially people with a cool tech-related job that isn’t a traditional “programming” job, or people who got there in a non-traditional way. My goal is to show that taking CS courses can lead you anywhere! Not everyone will be a computer programmer, but everyone will use computers! So if you know someone, please pass along my contact info!
If you or your business is upgrading your laptops, please let me know! https://kttc.com/news/2019/05/30/program-provides-laptops-to-rps-students/
Tell your friends (in high school) to sign up for my new courses! http://blog.rctc.edu/rctc-to-offer-concurrent-computer-science-courses/
If you value equality and free competition on the internet, this should concern you. Without Net Neutrality, your ISP will be able to charge fees for websites like the cable companies do. Want Facebook and Instagram? You’ll have to pay extra for the “social” package. Want ESPN.com? Great, that’ll be $20 a month for the “sports” package. Want to start your own social media website? Too bad, you’re not part of a package so no one will visit your site. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/21/technology/fcc-net-neutrality.html
