Teaching Your Kids to Code

LifeHacker has a story today about an interactive programming tool developed by Code.org.  It’s a really great idea and a visual way to teach kids how to code.

In a genius move, Code.org licensed MineCraft and Star Wars as the two sandbox environments that your kids learn in.  I remember doing some similar 30 years ago in Turtle.

Highly recommended.


Amazon Web Services in Plain English

Found this little gem today and had to pass it on. The folks at ExpeditedSSL have put together a nice little glossary of all  Amazon Web Services and a brief description of each.

A very handy reference that you can send to folks that aren’t up to speed on Amazon or perhaps a bit non-technical.
