Exploring the Year of Code Waterloo Region

This blog post kicks of a new component at Mark’s Musings. In recognition of the importance of creative thinking, tossing ideas around, and learning by doing it is equally important to allow forums for ideas to: germinate, build, be discussed, be modified, tested and challenged. As a personal ‘next‘ or next step, I have decided to add the Virtual Coffee Shop series within my blog to dedicate intentional time to capturing a conversation or two each month to share with a broader audience.

I am thrilled that Stephanie Rozek was able to join me for this first live streamed conversation in the Virtual Coffee Shop series to discuss the Year of Code Waterloo Region initiative.

I had a great conversations with team members Susan Watt, Peter McAsh and campaign director Stephanie Rozek. I look forward to my meeting with her next week …. just think of the possibilities!

Here are a few of of the sights I enjoyed today.
