Are you a professional developer, or do you want to be? Worried that your computer science theory is not enough, or is outdated? We'll talk about which parts are useful, which aren't, and why/where.

The experiments start off simply, with baking a potato to destruction, but by the end you will be isolating and extracting the DNA of a kiwi frui ...
