Thursday, January 28, 2016 18:00 at ISCS Office 210 Inverness Parkway, Birmingham, AL 35242
Meeting starts at 7 PM Central. We hope to see you at the Birmingham CocoaHeads Reboot Meeting! The ISCS office is on Inverness Parkway next to the Inverness Country Club's Racket Club. Jarrod Parkes, Instructor at Udacity.com, will present a talk titled "Futures in Swift". Jarrod is no stranger to trying new things for the sake of education: both a self-starter and advocate for reinventing the ways we learn, he first started challenging the status quo when he helped create virtual science labs for middle school students at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. While studying Computer Science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, he started supplementing his college curriculum with online courseware, and he has never looked back. He holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
