You know "learn to code" is real when Kaplan steps in.

+Upstart is excited to partner with them to provide tuition funding to their students.

We're hiring at Upstart!

Looking for a killer Operations Associate who can smile cooly while riding on top of a runaway train.

Now here's a Google Glass use case I'm excited about!

Congrats to upstart +Ian Shakil, who today launched his company +Augmedix to bring Google Glass applications to doctors.

Rocks are hard, math is just fancy counting. To prove this to yourself just do the four basic operation in binary.

addition - add the two numbers
subtraction - change every one to a zero and every zero to a one, then add the two numbers
multiplication - flip the second number end to end, then add the two numbers
division - do both, change the ones and zeros and flip, then add the two numbers.
