Colorado Tech Weekly #104: If I already knew how to do it, it wouldn’t be called learning
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
This week my Computation Theory homework kicked my ass. I learned there are 2 ways to find the intersection of 2 languages. There’s the hard way and the easy way. Without realizing until the end of the week, I had chosen to use the hard way to do my homework. Sometimes that’s how you learn. I always tell my daughter this when she’s struggling with homework so I might as well tell myself:
“If you already knew how to do it, it would’t be called learning.”
