Inferential Thinking, Free Coding School, Technical Wealth, and Social Linked Data
- Computational and Inferential Thinking — textbook for the Foundations of Data Science class at UC Berkeley.
- Ars Covers 42 — free coding school with a really interesting approach (aims to provide social mobility). The measure will be its failures, not its successes, so I’m keen to see more reporting on it as it expands out. Very ambitious!
- Building Technical Wealth — work to fix things that make developers less productive because the value from today’s development compounds.
- MIT Solid — (derived from “social linked data”) is a proposed set of conventions and tools for building decentralized social applications based on Linked Data principles. Solid is modular and extensible, and it relies as much as possible on existing W3C standards and protocols. TimBL’s latest project.
