CMU 推出 Product Management 的課程

CMUCS (Computer Science) 發的新聞稿:「Carnegie Mellon Offers New Master's Degree in Product Management」。

副標也清楚寫出是一年的課程:

One-Year Program Turns Computer Professionals Into "CEOs of the Product"

除了 CMU CS 外,也結合了 CMU 的 Tepper Business School 一起開:

A joint program of the university's School of Computer Science (SCS) and Tepper School of Business, the Master of Science in Product Management (MSPM) program will start January 2018.

另外一個不同角度的 Product Management。

新墨西哥州禁止因為學童付不起營養午餐,就要求他們以勞力付出

禁止這類變相的羞辱行為:「New Mexico Outlaws School ‘Lunch Shaming’」。

In some schools, children are forced to clean cafeteria tables in front of their peers to pay the debt. Other schools require cafeteria workers to take a child’s hot food and throw it in the trash if he doesn’t have the money to pay for it.

法案包括了所有有接受補助的學校:

On Thursday, Gov. Susana Martinez signed the Hunger-Free Students’ Bill of Rights, which directs schools to work with parents to pay their debts or sign up for federal meal assistance and puts an end to practices meant to embarrass children. It applies to public, private and religious schools that receive federal subsidies for students’ breakfasts and lunches.

美國年輕人的理想職業

紐約時報報導 National Society of High School Scholars 問了一萬八千名美國年輕人 (15~29 歲) 理想的職業,也不少出乎意料的結果跑出來:「The New Dream Jobs」。

常見的網路公司在上面,但讓紐約時報感到意外的,FBICIANSA 也在上面:

When the National Society of High School Scholars asked 18,000 Americans, ages 15 to 29, to rank their ideal future employers, the results were curious. To nobody’s surprise, Google, Apple and Facebook appeared high on the list, but so did the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency.

不過應該是不意外?在教育體系被灌輸愛國主義不就很容易就有這樣的結果?

芝加哥的高中將 Computer Science 列入畢業要求

芝加哥的高中將 Computer Science 列入畢業要求:「Computer science could become graduation requirement for CPS students」。

看起來沒有標準,有的學校以基本的 HTML 編寫為主:

Claypool announced the proposed requirement outside a technology classroom at Curie, where he'd earlier spent some time talking to introductory computer science students about the day's lesson on basic HTML coding.

在家族裡使用 Slack...

公司用 Slack 還蠻常見的,但在「My family uses Slack. It's pretty interesting.」這邊看到家人之間使用 Slack 的分享。

利用 integration 叫 bot 回答小朋友現在的地點,並且與 Google Calendar 整合通知事項。然後學校提供的 RSS feed 也可以拉進來。

再來是採買食物的 bot,是有這麼宅嗎 XDDD

感覺很資訊化的家庭啊 XDDD

阿肯色州成為第一個要求高中教 coding 的州

Slashdot 上看到「Arkansas Is Now the First State To Require That High Schools Teach Coding」,報導自「Arkansas is Now the First State to Require That High Schools Teach Coding」。

2015~2016 這個年度將會開始招募大量教師,在高中內教 coding,大約花費一億五千萬台幣。

Training programs for teacher preparation will be available, but with the majority of the infrastructure already primed, the execution of this new law should hopefully be painless and seamless.

推行到高中啊...
