Those of you who are interested in coding and computer science, please take a look at the following presentation on the Google Code-in contest. It is available to any student 13-17 years old. It is an excellent way to get real-world experience in programming and working with industry experts in open-source software.
If interested, I will hold weekly lunch meetings starting in November, to help out students who have signed up. We may also have FLEX time available for those who may wish to work during that time.
