…ways I don't even comprehend them anymore. Trying to help those who have come up through Hungry Academy, even just a little, has paid dividends in understanding "junior" programmers and more experienced developers who don't have my experiences.

Again: hold all the things in your …

I sat down with Elise Worthy at RailsConf to pair with her on a Rails application that used the Wunderground API to retrieve the weather for multiple cities. If you don't know Elise, she's a Hungry Academy student formerly of Seattle. You can read about how she built her app on the Hungry Academy Blog . Since Elise is new to programming, pairing with her made me think about how I work on small tasks when implementing a larger feature.

Jeff yesterday and posted an article about the Washington DC Hungry Academy program on the RailsBridge Open Workshops blog . I'm skeptical that you can got from "I've never coded" to writing production code on a web app like Living Social in 5 months, but if you have a passion to learn, go for it. At worst case, you'll get some great training and experience and be on your way to becoming a software developer.

Jeff is a dedicated and imaginative …

…framework's logic is contained on the client-side and is generated directly off of Khan Academy's REST API .

By moving logic to the client-side we're able to have a much more interactive experience (doing all problem generation on the client-side, doing Ajax-y background submissions, things of that sort).
