Wow…this is truly amazing. The AFSE (Academy for Software Engineering) in NYC is going full steam ahead and the first 9th grade class is being recruited now. Read Fred’s post for the story.

Why isn’t every major city in the country following NYC’s lead? Seems like getting our country’s youth interested in software engineering at an early age is one of the best things we can do to help the long term economic growth of this country. It’s safe to say we’ll see a number of these projects in the next two years.
