Wow, glad to be on the list. I can attest I'm in very good company.
There has been much ado lately about the DevOps movement—the software development and delivery methodology that is revolutionizing the way that...

"From then on, I vowed to never sit quietly again. I let go of the need to be liked and started speaking my mind. This was a big moment for me because leading up to that day I always valued qualities like humility and deference, and as a woman this felt like a “natural” way to be."

When Reshma Saujani’s attempt to appear “nice” actually made her look weak and dull, she vowed to never sit quietly again.

Why women stopped coding. In 1984 boys started receiving computers as toys. Girls did not. So when students took CS classes in college, the boys had the advantage since they already had experience with computers.

A lot of computing pioneers, the ones who programmed the first digital computers, were women. For decades, the number of women in computer science was growing. But in 1984, something changed.

Really +Google Maps?!?! Why is the street name wrong? Roselawn only exists south of Honolulu. Rosemont Avenue is where ROSEMONT Middle School is.

This is bothering me far more than it should. And yes, I have already reported the problem.

How do you keep a classroom of 40 students quiet? You give them #Chromebooks so they can do #HourofCode.

Its always a gamble to stay in a non-chain hotel. This time our gamble paid off. The hotel was cheaper than the local Best Western and right on the beach. We brought our dinner with us and ate on the porch. Then the kids played in the surf while I relaxed. The rooms are dated and the wifi is spotty (but free). But its clean, the staff is great. the towels are soooo soft and thick. I would definitely stay here again. Great location for the price.

I remember when this location was a Shakeys. I am so happy that there is a pizza place back in town. I have been here a dozen times in the last few months. The ingredients are fresh. The place is clean and well-stocked. I have attended soccer parties, birthday parties and dine out nights. They give back to the community. They are always happy to make a to-go pizza and quickly. I find the staff helpful and kind. You will not be disappointed. Great pizza. Gluten free! Beer and lots of big screens.
