Why Everyone Should Learn Software
Sungmoon Cho
A little bit about me
Silicon Valley,
a heaven for engineers
Software is eating the world!
If you know the code, you can do more of everything. Here is what I did.
Implement your own idea
Software is the substitute
of the brain
So, how can you learn?
Technical background matters here, and I appreciate that I have the right background.

Then, I started to teach people coding.

That's when I realized...

Extension of arms and legs
Extension of the brain
Big data & machine Learning open doors to new business models
Knowing Software means you understand the world better.
The same way as you understand the world better once you learn physics

public int[] getAverageRGB (BufferedImage image) {
int[] rgb = new int[3];
int width = image.getWidth();
int height = image.getHeight();
for (int l=0; l<height; l++) {
for (int k=0; k<width; k++) {
int pixel = image.getRGB(k, l);
rgb[0] = rgb[0] + ((pixel >> 16) & 0xff);
rgb[1] = rgb[1] + ((pixel >> 8) & 0xff);
rgb[2] = rgb[2] + ((pixel) & 0xff);

rgb[0] = rgb[0] / (width*height);
rgb[1] = rgb[1] / (width*height);
rgb[2] = rgb[2] / (width*height);
return rgb;

Right timing, right skill set.
Then, draw markers on the Google Map

if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
var map = new

for (var i = 0; i<1100; i++) {
var latlng = new GLatLng(pos[i][0], pos[i][1]);
map.addOverlay(new GMarker(latlng));
LookupService cl = new

for (int i=0; i<IP.length; i++) {
location[i] = cl.getLocation(IP[i]);
latitude[i] = location.latitude();
longitude[i] = location.longitude();
<IP Addresses of Those who took the survey>
