David Leedy just produced a brilliant NotesIn9 video that all developers should go and watch now. Seriously, go and watch it.
Here’s a video my friend Andrew Pennington, a student at the Washington State School for the Blind made:
Here is a some more information about my recent experience with Andrew while teaching at Clark College that was originally shared on Facebook:
What a wonderful day it has been. My job shadow student from the Washington State School for the Blind spent the day working with me on class prep, code examples, a tour of the campus and then spent 2 hours in my PHP class. The students in the PHP class made him feel part of the class. He also shared with the class his plans for becoming a programmer and his plans to attend WSU. He was also very witty, which for those of you who know my PHP students, fit in perfectly
Another thing that truly struck a chord with me was that he has the same visual acuity as I do. Throughout the day I kept flashing back to myself at his age.
Again, what an awesome experience it was to host him at Clark College — Vancouver, Washington today.

We’re excited to share Prime Air — something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.
The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.
Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.
