Today feels like cheating – but it’s a great article so I’m passing it on. Medium is a great online publishing magazine and I subscribe to the daily digest and usually end up reading one or two. Since my job is to introduce Computer Science to students, this article really hit home for me. Enjoy!

Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Was Learning How To Code by Cecily Carver is a great meta piece about coding in 2016.
