Week five

“You look so much happier!”

I get the best compliments. Also, I feel so much happier. I have put people, friendships, connections, and experiences first, and am taking advantage of the rewards.

One such experience was a visit a couple of further education (16-18 years old) computing classes in my county. I was mostly there to talk about my background in the industry and help them to understand what jobs there are and what employers look for. I was blown away by the things these students could make in their robotics classes though, with Mindstorms kits talking to laptops and mobile apps.

That was a huge step up from the turtle robots we had shuffling around the floor. in my school. And it still feels like there’s even more opportunity there, like there’s a huge gap between what a student sees computers being capable of and what they can do with the tools we (the industry) give them.
