Once upon a time there lived two programmers who were great friends. They loved the same programming language, wanted to make similar kinds of things and shared similar interests. Their ideas were convergent. But their code was separated by physical distance.
Recently there has been a lot of active pushing going on by the media/technology bigwigs for the “coding movement”. Biggest example of that being Code.Org which is backed by Facebook, Microsoft and Google, just to name a few. Not long back, there was a massive online campaign going on featuring celebrities sharing their experiences about learning code and how it had made their life better.
It had been a tiring semester, in every sense of the word. The weather was hot and humid; made even more so by the uphill climbs one had to endure to reach either food or class.
