WATCH: Inspiring TEDx Talk On Computer Science Education

Ashley’s talk shines a light on the major problem that is American Computer Science education. In 2020, 1.4 million new jobs will be available for those with competing backgrounds, but we’ll only have engineers to fill two-thirds of them.

Ashley shows us how we can right this wrong.

Ashley Gavin is a computer science education consultant with a passion for making computer science curricula empowering, accessible, and above all, fun.

Her work in curriculum and program development serves as the foundation for some of the finest educational organizations in the country including her brainchild “Girls Who Code”.

During high school, Ashley was actively interested in tech. However, she was denied access to computer science courses at her school due her failing grades in math and science.

In her senior year, the newly appointed CS teacher noticed her affinity for tech and took a risk by letting her drop math and take computer science instead.

Ashley has since been working to do so for as many students as possible, especially those in underrepresented groups.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

– Dominique Leuenberger, openSUSE team.

Noteworthy updates:

* Plasma 5.6.2
* XChat has been replaced by hexchat
* KDE Framework 5.21.0
* Mesa 11.2.0

The GNOME 3.20.1 desktop environment update should be landing in the openSUSE repositories early next week. Along with the GLibC 2.23 library and Linux kernel 4.5.1.

It’ll be wise to keep your openSUSE updated from here forward due to many components receiving updates and more.

Watch this TED Talk About Teaching Your Kids About Computers

Linda Liukas is a Finnish computer programmer, children’s writer and programming instructor. In 2014, her Hello Ruby coding book for children raised $380,000 on Kickstarter becoming the platform’s most highly funded children’s book.

Computer code is the next universal language, and its syntax will be limited only by the imaginations of the next generation of programmers.

Linda Liukas is helping to educate problem-solving kids, encouraging them to see computers not as mechanical, boring and complicated but as colorful, expressive machines meant to be tinkered with.

In this talk, she invites us to imagine a world where the Ada Lovelaces of tomorrow grow up to be optimistic and brave about technology and use it to create a new world that is wonderful, whimsical and a tiny bit weird.

Unity Tweak Tool Makes For moving Launcher in Ubuntu 16.04 Easier

Canonical will finally allow Ubuntu users to move the Unity Launcher to the bottom of the screen.

The feature was added in to Ubuntu from an idea by the developers.

Unity Tweak Tool 0.0.7 was pushed a few hours ago to the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS repositories, and the new “move launcher horizontally” setting, which is called “Position,” was implemented in the Launcher section, under “Appearance.”

Here is a screenshot of the Unity Tweak Tool as well as the Unity Launcher at the bottom.
