Curiosity, coding and kids
Driving the world forward
Albert Einstein credited his success not to his undeniable genius, but to his curiosity. What an empowering statement about human potential.
My own curiosity inspired me to pursue computer science after seeing an IBM Selectric typewriter typing by itself. I had to know how it worked. I enrolled in the only computer course NC State offered at the time, and that led to my future in software. Jim Goodnight CEO SAS
