A nice list with interesting history — I didn’t know most of these (Thanks to Guy Haas who sent it to me): Although “Amazing Grace” Hopper is sometimes mentioned, Lovelace often serves as a token when talking about women in technology. However, her…

The March 2015 issues of Inroads (linked here) has a special section on “The role of programming in a non-major, CS course.” I was disappointed by several of the articles in the special section for making arguments without empirical evidence, and decided…

An argument for diversity is that it leads to better team decisions and designs.  But it turns out that having women on the team at all leads to better group performance.  It’s an important finding to argue why we need more women in CS, which is still a…

Nice (short) interview with Mehran Sahami — addresses several issues around computing education and about Stanford’s CS department. How did you convince Mark Zuckerberg to come to your class every year for the last four years to lead a Q&A with students?…

I highly recommend the article below, for the perspective above all.  The issue of “If we fix teachers, do we fix the American educational system” is discussed below and in a recent Freakonomics podcast (see link here).  The Freakonomics team comes to the…
