Harvard is now offering a free Introduction to Programming with Python course. I’m enrolled and ready to learn. I’m a big fan of Professor David J. Malan.
Here’s a video by Vicky Zhao on communicating confidently on Zoom and virtual meeting calls. Are we not, after all, headed to the Metaverse, right?
Next summer, I will be back at Portland State University, teaching the Harvard Computer Science 50 course to graduate students. Also, my alma mater, Stevens Institute of Technology, located in Hoboken, New Jersey, has reached out to see if I would be interested in teaching Python to their graduate students; remotely of course.
Here’s a video of my talk at the Vantalks 2017 event held in Vancouver, Washington on May 24, 2017.

This conversation took place late last night on Slack:
Student: Bruce I see you the Sublime Text editor.
Bruce: I have tried many of them out and prefer Sublime.
Student: I want to be a professional web developer one day. I also have some questions about the assignment that’s due tomorrow.
Bruce: A professional web developer wouldn’t start a project the day before it was due.
Student: Only the good pros do.
Bruce: It better be perfect then.
