  1. Interview with Jeff Atwood of Coding Horror - Boing Boing

    By Mark Frauenfelder

    Our guest on Gweek this week is Jeff Atwood, a cult hero in the modern computing world. For the last ten years he’s run the popular blog Coding Horror, and is the the co-founder of the question-and-answer websites Stack Overflow, Stack Exchange Network, and Discourse.

    In this discussion with Boing Boing’s software developer, Dean Putney, Jeff shares many good insights about learning. For instance, he says no one really buys giant programming book anymore: “Programmers are learning online from each other now. They just “page fault” in the information. That’s how people learn today.” He also says, “If you want to prove that you understand something, teach it to someone else.”
