Udacity: Udacity at Google I/O

Udacity at Google I/O
2013-05-24 00:09:00

This year, the Google I/O and Google Chrome teams were kind enough to invite Udacity to participate in their Developer Sandbox at I/O. On Friday, fellow Udacians Stuart, Chris and I manned a Udacity booth equipped with a new mini lesson to show everyone what Udacity’s all about. Martin Conway, developer of Utactica and winner of an I/O ticket in our HTML5 Game Development contest, makes an appearance! Colt, Peter and I were psyched to meet Martin. I’ve been trying to think of the right way to describe our experience at I/O, and I keep coming back to the same phrase: Blown away. Seriously, the response Udacity got from developers at I/O was nothing short of astonishing. We were mobbed by people all day, we had to tag-team getting food and drinks around lunch time because there was no way we could leave our space. As to the actual response from developers at our station, we got a wide range of people and opinions. A huge number of current Udacity students stopped by to…

Inside Udacity: Developing Intro to Programming
2013-05-22 23:25:00

Hi, I’m Sara! I work at Udacity as a course manager, meaning I’m often on the Udacity end of the conversation when students check in with questions about our courses. I’ve also recently donned a course developer hat, meaning I work with Professor Cay Hortsmann and Cheng-Han Lee to develop our new Intro to Programming course. Developing a course at Udacity is pretty exciting. It generally goes like this: Brainstorming, scripting & writing sample codeInitially, Cheng-Han, Cay, and I brainstorm cool examples of things you can program, like drawing a graph of your friends. Next, we write lesson scripts and test out all the example code. Filming When we film the videos, I always find that the code has a mind of its own. I plan some mistakes so students can see the process of reasoning about bugs, but sometimes I make new mistakes while filming. I guess those ones will be more authentic :) Recognizing and fixing bugs is a critical skill. Bugs are a constant…
