Code your own lines of code for a Space Mission

Astro Pi,

An outstanding group of space companies from the United of Kingdom are working very hard with Tim Peake, a British astronaut, to encourage students to develop and program their own software for Raspberry Pi, which will be considered as a part of a mission leaded  by Tim Peake and it will be shown in the International Space Station.

Code your own lines of code for a Space Mission

yo te aconsejar…

yo te aconsejaría que te centrases en lenguajes de programación funcional como Haskell, OCaml y F# (incluso algunas nociones de Coq no te vendrían mal), ya que ahí es dónde está el futuro de la programación.

But Mitch Resnick, who spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet, is skeptical of this descriptor. Sure, young people can text and chat and play games, he says, “but that doesn’t really make you fluent.”

[ted_talkteaser id=1657]Fluency, Resnick proposes in this TED Talk, comes not through interacting with new technologies, but through creating them. The former is like reading, while the latter is like writing. He means this figuratively — that creating new technologies, like writing a book, requires creative expression — but also literally: to make new computer programs, you actually must write the code.

The point isn’t to create a generation of programmers, Resnick argues. Rather, it’s that coding is a gateway to broader learning.“When you learn to read…
