A working title…Broadening Participation in Computing Through Broadening Computing: Adults Learning Computer Science Through Computational Work
3 projects I am working on now, 1 thing that might be a failure
1 thing that has been hard, 1 insight/connection to my past, 3 things I been using for pro-active time tracking
1 major thing I learned, 1 insight/early idea
