Python Programmer Chews Gum After Lunch

LAKEWOOD, CO—Tim Chambers, a Reno-area computer programmer and father of two, expressed befuddlement Tuesday when two of his most gossipy co-workers stopped mid-sentence as he approached the water cooler during a new higher orientation workshop the 3 were hosting.

After months of subtle complaints from his coworkers, Tim Chambers has finally starting to acknowledge his post-lunch halitosis. For the better part of the week, he had been toying with the idea of bringing a toothbrush and toothpaste to work and keeping it in his office drawer but told reporters today he has made a final decision to leave them at home.

"It just seems weird to bring my whole toothbrush and everything to work, you know?” (nodding vigorously) “What's next, deodorant, fingernail clippers and a comb? Before you know it, management will install a shower in the storage room and never let us go home to be with our families."

To address the problem without looking like a pushover, Tim bought a pack of spearmint gum from the vending machine on the 2nd floor and said, “I will give this a try for a bit.”

Tim told reporters on a follow-up interview 3 weeks later that the subtle complaints were gone and "he did not think it was as big a deal as Lenny and Penelope made it seem," but later also acknowledged, " I don't like it when other people smell, so I see where they are coming from.”

02 - Orientation

I tried to create a unique learning experience for you by building all my content around a handful of learning methods. In this video, we will get a high-level overview of the learning methods the course was constructed around, then a few recommendations to help you get the most out of your time.

This course addresses all topics in two ways, first by having a no-code discussion explaining the “what” and the “why,” then we add code examples to demonstrate the “how.”

Why Lessons

Creative Right-Brained Visual Discussions
Often the creative right side of our brains use the excuse, “It’s too complicated.”
So our right-brain videos, use plain English discussions, stories and memory mnemonics to address the “why” of programming without letting the technical stuff get in the way.

How Lessons

Logical Left-Brained Explanations and Examples
Often the logical left side of our brains use the excuse, “What's the point?”
So our left-brain videos, use code examples and syntax explanations to address the “how” of programming.

Cutting-Edge Learning Methods
This course was built around several learning methods that take advantage of new discoveries from the science of learning.

The Spacing Effect

Learning is faster when the studying is spread out over time.
So this course includes an easy-to-follow schedule (90 min. sessions, 3 days a week) that takes two months to complete.
The course is split into 3 chapters that start with a no-code, reading-friendly e-book written in Q&A style with mnemonics.

The Mnemonic Effect

Humans are wired to learn about real-life objects, but often in programming, learning is not hands on or visual.
Each concept we discuss is connected to a physical object that you have likely interacted with in real life and can imagine seeing, feeling, etc.

The Metaphor Effect

Learning is faster when an instructor builds on associations that a student has already made.
This course uses visual/spatial mnemonics along with every programming concept. Each mnemonic is tied to a metaphor, so you can connect the discussion topics with physical objects to aid in memory retention.

Memory Palace

A Memory Palace works by imagining a place you know well and then putting the physical mnemonics we learned from the other chapter in your spacial memory.
After the “what” and “why” videos, you will find bizarre stories that are all told in a single geographical location.

The Bizarreness Effect

The Bizarreness Effect is the tendency to remember bizarre material better than common material.
The stories are purposely designed to make absurd leaps of logic, anthropomorphize objects and generally address bizarre and unrealistic situations.

The Belief Effect

Studies show that students who are told they will do better on tests end up performing better, and vice versa.
This course is sprinkled with stories that humanize the life of a programmer, comparing programming to creative writing, sports and painting. Just as anyone can learn writing or painting skills, anyone can learn to code; this course keeps that perspective in focus.

The Eureka Effect

The Eureka Effect describes the experience of suddenly understanding a previously incomprehensible problem.
To help increase this sensation, we learn passes. This approach lets the concepts build up in steps, but also allows the whole picture to come into focus slowly, as you learn about previous concepts on a deeper and deeper level.
We use two numbering systems for every lesson. The top number shows the breadth: how much progress you are making across topics. The bottom number shows the depth: how deep into a topic's complexity you are.

Project-Based Learning

Automate Boring Songs, Make Interactive Jokes, Randomly Pick Characters, Identify Positions, Remove Vowels, Reverse a String, Check for Palindromes, Pluralize Single Words, Calculator Stuff, Solve the Pythagorean Theorem, Odd or Even Test, Trig Homework, Randomize a Guessing Game, Print the Fibonacci Sequence & Solve the FizzBuzz Problem, Check if it's Dark Outside, Read a Spreadsheet from the Internet, Make a Progress Bar, Scrape Jokes off a Website, Share Data through an API & Make a Beautiful Chart

Man Unsure If Calendar’s Time Zone Is Correct

ATLANTA, GA—Local blender manufacturer recently outsourced some of their development needs to a team in India. Hoping to have a Skype check-in meeting last night at 7pm with the team's lead programmer Sonja Mortiza, project manager Tom Anderson told reporters, "I know there's a 12 hours difference between Atlanta and India, so I sent a 7pm calendar invite (Atlanta time) hoping to catch him in the morning."

Eyewitnesses reported around 7:18pm, there was still no sign of Sonja on Skype, leading many to believe Tom messed up the calendar invite show it showed up as 7pm in Sonja's calendar as well as Toms.

Giving further credence to this theory, upon leaving his home office and re-entering the living room at approximately 7:29pm to find his family gathered around the TV just as his favorite show was wrapping up, he was quoted as saying, "Dang! I could've just stayed in the living room with everyone after dinner.”

At press time, reporters confirmed Tom is lying in bed even though he isn't tired, because he needs to get up “extra early” so he can be ready in case Sonja tries calling him at 7:00am Atlanta time tomorrow morning.

Do you think questionable 7am Skype calls from your home office sound exciting? If so learn to program now at
