Making a Gift
Findlay continues the work he and Phillips started... teaching young people to program. It's a testiment to the great work done by great people sharing knowledge and their time for the benefit of others.
"I have no doubt that Linda would be smiling from ear to ear if she knew that the Intro to Linux course has now reached every corner of the globe. I just had the first registration from Barbados yesterday," Findlay said proudly.
"She loved the kids courses. She would have loved the survey responses that I'm currently getting back from the Intro to Linux courses", he said.
By all measures the project has been a resounding success and can be summed up with a final comment by Findlay.
"Linda always liked to use the iCanProgram spelling... I've stuck with that."
