Are you an Intro Computing instructor who moonlights as a web developer? Microsoft announced its second annual Microsoft Edge Web Summit will be held in San Francisco on April 4, 2016. This free event gives developers the opportunity to learn from the engineers who build Microsoft’s Edge browser, rendering engine and developer tools through breakout sessions, Q&As, and workshops. Registration will open soon.

On April 4, the Computing team will be in Orlando for the Cengage Learning Computing Conference. But if you’re on the West Coast, let us know if you’re attending Microsoft’s summit!

 

Computing Team is Excited for the CLCC

 

   

The Cengage Computing team was asked what we’re most looking forward to at the 21st annual Cengage Learning Computing Conference. Our team is excited to demo SAM 2016, meet authors and customers in person, and learn and interact with Intro Computing instructors. Two more reasons why we’re eagerly anticipating being in Orlando from April 4-6 for the CLCC: warm weather and an evening at Disney!

Cengage Learning Computing Conference

Cengage Learning Computing Conference 2015

From March 18 through 20, 2015, we celebrated twenty years of the Cengage Learning Computing Conference in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. Joined by dozens of presenters and hundreds of enthusiastic computing instructors, we enjoyed two-and-a-half days of engaging presentations and interactive sessions on a wide range of topics: 3D printing, online portfolios, privacy and cyber security, digital literacy in the 21st century, Raspberry Pi, computing in the cloud, and much more. And of course, we had plenty of sessions devoted to SAM, MindTap, and other Cengage Learning solutions.

Keynote presenters Curtis Bonk of Indiana University, Jim Federico and Anthony Salcito of Microsoft®, Corinne Hoisington of Central Virginia Community College, and teen inventor Jack Andraka addressed invaluable insights, trends, and tips related to teaching computing to today’s students.
