An Impromptu Lesson

I had a pleasant conversation with my neighbor on the plane today. He was a young business guy who, after learning about my field, started to ask questions about what exactly coding is, how computers work, and how new programming languages are invented. We ended up talking for about an hour and a half and he was genuinely interested in learning more even after the plane landed. He was most amused by why we use the term “bug” to refer to an error in code. 
I’m a bit out of teaching practice (been taking a few months off to travel), but I was so happy to see that I jumped back into that position without too much difficulty, and it was the motivation I needed as I am now starting to go into the application process in my new area. 
Thanks, Shawn! Hope you continue to learn!
