Workflow Logic for Kids

What do you think?


Looks great to me! I'm so glad it worked so well. The little girl who wanted to do more is really encouraging and endearing.


There were stars in her eyes as she went to work on the next one. She was seeing great things. I hope this jumpstarts an amazing career for her.

So I'm thinking that this Workflow Logic for Kids is something I'd like to push to more than just our little community. Not only would it encourage children to explore programming as a career, but it might push them more into sciences and math.

That being the case, and since y'all seem to like the post so much, would you mind linking to it in other communities?

And of course feel free to use the burger example or redo what I wrote about to teach kids in your communities if you want / have the opportunity.

Also, if you do use it, comments on the post about your experiences or adding new thoughts on the process would be greatly appreciated.

A small suggestion: to make the decision more obvious (or easier to follow), I would make the arrows green for 'yes' and orange for 'no'.

AHHa. I like that suggestion. I will update the pic by the end of the day.

Threadzians, I could use some help with my own personal RBAR horror story here. It's not that we want to do RBAR, but that we really don't seem to have much of a choice.

Please.


I posted a set-based solution there for you.

A small suggestion if I might:
For everyone involved in SQL Saturdays, there are usually a few children at them. (Usually children of speakers and volunteers putting the event on.). Maybe during the lunch time period, take over one of the rooms and do this for the kids that are there. (At the SQL Saturday we did in March, we had about 8 kids.) Not a big group at all, but it sure would mean something for those that are there, and provide a break from the boredom for them.

That is a brilliant idea!

So, I don't feel that I'm doing one of our posters justice on a topic he's posted. I've gotten a very polite blow off. Not looking for a dogpile, he's quite nice. So, it may be presentation, it may be content, it may just be we don't communicate well together.

It's regarding sporadic Double Hop problems he's having from a linked server. If one or two others would be kind enough to drop by and see if they can provide more effective (or accurate) guidance, it'd be appreciated.

I tossed a couple ideas at the guy. More info might be needed, but we'll see where it goes...

Jeff, wanted to thank you (and everyone who helped) again for the delimitedsplit8k function, I just had an experience at work where you made me look really good.

file with completely 0NF data (abnormalized? lol) where two or three columns had CSV lists of specialties, FIPS codes for service areas, etc.

I was able to take the file as it existed, break out the data and create multiple records for each provider, specialty, location in order to create maps that we needed urgently.

My solution was supposed to be a fail-safe, ended up looking better than the original solution because I could get all that data out and generated within 24 hours. (~40 maps)

Thanks!!!
