While we're here, let's fix computer science education

A session at DjangoCon US 2012

Wednesday 5th September, 2012

10:15am to 11:05am (EST)

Selena Deckelmann a major contributor to PostgreSQL, open source advocate and a fan of @feministhulk will be talking about the state of computer science (CS) education. Recent statistics predict that by 2017, 50% or more of jobs in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines will be computer-related. But enrollment in computer science is dropping and standards for education are inconsistent and limited. Selena will tell her audience why this is relevant to all developers and what they can do to support a reform at the federal, state and local level.
