CCATP #714 – Bart Busschots – PBS Tibit2 – It’s Ok to Play a Different Game!

This episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond perfectly straddles the line between Programming By Stealth and Lite. While it’s definitely a nerdy discussion topic, Bart Busschots is really just telling a story. He starts by explaining how he ended up a computer scientist essentially by accident, and tells us about a fantastic CS professor he had who inspired him through an assignment about a game called 8 Queens. He tells these stories as a way to explain that when I used the Terminal and egrep to help me solve the game Wordle a few weeks ago, it wasn’t really cheating. I think whether you’re a programmer or not, you’ll enjoy hearing Bart explain why.

Bart’s shownotes can be found at pbs.bartificer.net/…
