    Nebraska Author, Marilyn Coffey Joins Kori on the Back Porch

    in Writing

    Great Plains writer Marilyn June Coffey has written three books, 600 poems, and dozens of articles and stories. A trained journalist (B.A., University of Nebraska, 1959) and creative writer (M.F.A., Brooklyn College, 1981), she has produced work that includes a popular memoir, a record-setting novel, and a prize-winning poem. Her poem, Pricksong, reviewed in the Los Angeles Times Book Review and Newsweek, won a national Pushcart Prize. Coffey's novel Marcella made literary history. It was the first novel written in English to use female autoeroticism as a main theme. Gloria Steinem called it "an important part of the truth telling by and for women. In 1989, Coffey's memoir, Great Plains Patchwork, appeared. The New York Times called it entertaining and insightful. Atlantic Monthly featured a chapter as its cover story. Natural History bought two chapters, American Heritage one. Harper & Row, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, and Harcourt Brace Jovanovich printed excerpts. Known as a prose stylist, Coffey received a Master Alumnus award for distinction in the field of writing from the University of Nebraska in 1977. Since 1987, the UN-L Archives has collected forty boxes of Coffey's papers in its Mari Sandoz room. In 1991, Coffey investigated the orphan train movement, developing three programs for the Nebraska Humanities Council. One became the second most popular of the 232 programs underwritten by NHC and spurred her to write Mail-Order Kid. Now retired, Coffey taught writing at Boston University, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and Fort Hays State University in Kansas for thirty-four years, twice earning tenure. She became an interpretive reader/performer, appearing on local radio stations, statewide TV, and before more than 130 groups in twelve states, from Maine to Texas.  


    Her new book, Thieves, Rascals, & Sore Losers is available for pre-order.

    IT Life: An Alternative to University IT Programs

    in Technology

    Ashu Desai, our latest guest on IT Life Radio thinks college computer science programs are failing their students. He's founded a new kind of school to make the next generation of software developers that he thinks is more cost effective, faster, and most importantly, makes better developers than traditional IT programs from four year universities.


    Ashu thinks that developers aren't getting enough hands on experience or managing enough projects in college, and that the teachers they get are more interested in research than teaching. Desai knows first-hand. He dropped out of a college program himself when he realized he had learned far more from designing his own app than he was learning in school. After a few successful years as an IT pro, he decided to fix the problems he has seen. He founded Make School.


    According to Desai, Make School is designed to work more like a startup than a school. The "campus" looks like any office of a San Francisco startup. And the students spend part of their day in lectures and part of the day working on projects of their own. In other words, they get the startup experience. They've only had one class so far, but most of those folks are working and some are making well above the average salary for developers coming out of college and they're doing it in less time.


    The kicker? There is no tuition. Make School has a different business plan. Instead of taking money from you before you've made any they defer the tuition and then take a percentage of your salary in your first years after they get you a job. No job? No tuition.


    Ashu Desai is one of the founders of Make School, a university replacement for computer science. He attended UCLA to study computer science before dropping out to join Y Combinator and found Make School in hopes of improving computer science education.
