My Best Teaching Is One-on-One

一対一が僕のベスト

Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.

当然、先生方と共同レッスンも、特別レッスンの指導もします。

But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.

しかし、僕の一番意味あると思っている仕事は、講義が終わってから、
一対一と
個人的にその課題の勉強を応援することです。

It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

まあ、コンピュータプログラムにすると、得意先の方に出来上がった製品を体験させるようなことと思います。
役に立たない製品はまだ製品になっていないと同様です。

Thinking about Learning Ada -- Could You Write Unix in Ada?

I'm pretty much dissatisfied with every programming language I know. But I used to think Pascal was not too terrible, and Ada has a reputation for getting right many of the things C++ gets wrong.

The question is, Can it be used for the kind of programming I tend to do? If it is a good language, why hasn't anyone built something like Linux using Ada?

This is a list of stuff that came up when I started casually looking for work on implementing a Unixish kernel and userland in Ada:

I'm not finding all the links I found yesterday, but it's enough to make me curious enough to see if I can pick up Ada. I'll try to update this list as I do so.

I'll also try to post some of my self-education efforts on my languishing Programming Fun blog.

(By the way, I did find enough to be sure that Ada is not going to be my dream language. Just enough to get me interested in seeing what I can do with it.)
