Description

"Supporting opportunistic learning in software development with Wikipedia"

Programmers are continually in situations where they must discover what they do not know and learn new concepts. Based on my recent research in this area, this talk will contrast the strengths and weaknesses of Wikipedia as a resource for learning about new computing concepts and technologies opportunistically, as the need arises.
