Fun.
 
Trace the Paths

This is a simple memory game built with a drag-and-drop #JavaScript library and #SVG. Surprisingly challenging. Works on mobile, too.

Excellent closing keynote by Dave Cheney at Gophercon India.  It might become my "go to" standard response when somebody asks me what I like about +The Go Programming Language

This is the text of my closing keynote from Gophercon India. It has been slightly altered for readability from my original speaking notes. I am indebted to the organisers of Gophercon India for inviting me to speak, and to Canonical for giving me the time off to attend the conference.

"the Finns are teaching phenomena—such as the European Union, which encompasses learning languages, history, politics, and geography. No more of an hour of history followed by an hour of chemistry. The idea aims to eliminate one of the biggest gripes of students everywhere: “What is the point of learning this?” Now, each subject is anchored to the reason for learning it."

Love that approach, and I expect to see a more integrated approach to teaching in the future.

For educational purposes, there are many ways to thread different subjects together, grouped by phenomena is just one way.. Another easy way to relate different subjects together would be by historical concurrency.   For example, in the year 1776 the America Revolution was a significant event occuring, but in that same year Mozart was writing this Adagio for Violin and Orchestra.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwfDAWE42Yo  .. David Hume the philosopher died in 1776, and the French Mathematician Sophie Germain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Germain) was born. She fought against gender prejudice, making solid contributions to the field, including the  interesting Sophie Germain primes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Germain_prime).

By pulling on any one of those threads, the educational story could head off in several directions.
No more of an hour of history followed by an hour of chemistry.
