[in]genius: facebook's youngest engineer

Meet a not-so-average tech entrepreneur, Michael Sayman. He’s been making iPhone apps since he was 13 years old. His work has made him “more money than I could have ever imagined,” says the Florida teen -- money that’s used to provide for his family.

His work has caught the eye of some of Silicon Valley’s biggest names, but his latest app 4snaps, a multi-user photo game, caught Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s attention—offering Michael an engineering internship at the social network’s headquarters in California.

Coding: Prisoner to programmer - BBC News

Computer software, apps and websites are all made using coding languages or code for short. But despite the importance of coding, there is a major global shortage of people with the right skills. One group in South Africa is working to change that and hopes to create better opportunities for former prisoners. Brothers For All is an organisation founded by former criminals who now teach coding both in poor neighbourhoods and in prison.

3 years of Computer Science in 8 minutes

This is the most asked question on my channel by far so I thought I'd explain how I learned programming. In the process I got a little distracted and accidentally explained all of computer science in 8 minutes (kind of).

The goal of this video was to show you the connections between modern day (high-level) programming and how it was implemented at the low level. I show you the basics in Java and convert it to C code, then into Assembly, which leads me to talk about how computers perform addition/subtraction, and the logic design behind that is all implemented with transistors. In case you couldn't tell, I love low level programming. Just a disclaimer that I'm not saying this is the best way to learn programming I am simply sharing what I feel was the most valuable in my learning so far. I know many people start with web technologies which can be a great introduction as well! I am currently teaching myself a lot of server networking & all that stuff. I just believe if you really want to understand how to design algorithms and solve problems in creative ways then the most valuable things you can learn are at the low level. Even though C is 40 years old it is still regarded as producing the most efficient code since you have full control over pointers and memory management with minimal overhead. (the only thing faster is assembly.. an even lower level)
