Finding the unjustly homeless, and teaching them to code.



Yesterday the internet exploded around a blog post I made about my plan to offer to help a man with a simple question,


Option #1: I will give you $100 in cash.


Option #2: I will return tomorrow with a basic laptop and three books to learn to code. I will then come an hour early before work and teach you to become a software engineer.




This is what people need.  They do not need hand outs, they need help.  They need someone to teach them skills that they can live from.   

Give a man a fish and he can feed himself for a day, teach a man to fish and he can feed himself for life.  I think I misquoted that saying, but that is the gist of it.
