“There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says “Morning, boys. How’s the water?” And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes “What the hell is water?”
Code.org is a non-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education. Our goals include:
* Spreading the word that there is a worldwide shortage of computer programmers, and that it’s much easier to learn to program than you think.
* Building an authoritative database of all programming schools, whether they are online courses, brick+mortar schools or summer camps.
Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn how to code. We believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
相信沒有多少個企業領袖的離世，會在民眾間掀起如此廣泛迴響。2011年10月5日，當喬布斯的官方死訊正式宣佈，社交網絡立即爆發出一輪向喬布斯致敬潮，推特上對相關話題的發貼速度最高達每秒1萬條，以#iSad或#ThankYouSteve等致敬標籤發貼也數以十萬計，一時間，喬布斯的名言如廣告語”Think Different”或演講詞”Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish”也成了社交網絡上的熱門詞句，自逝世消息公佈後的24小時，最少已有超過280萬條在各大社交網絡出現過的致敬訊息(數據來自澳洲社交媒體監察機構SR7)，其中當然不乏社會名人，最廣為備受轉載之一，首推喬布斯宿敵兼老朋友蓋茲在推特那句「Working with Jobs was an insanely great honor」的留言(註：喬布斯生前常以insanely great來形容自己的產品)。
