Computer game development 'Hacker Cup' at Lafayette Elementary produces all winners

The first "Hacker Cup" computer game development competition at Lafayette Elementary was held on Monday, April 7th 2014, and the students gained insight into real world computer programming.

Each of the students created his/her own computer game and then presented it to a panel of judges. Judging was based on several factors including creativity, design, programming logic, and, of course, fun. Trophies were awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers.

Kevin Brown of West Seattle and wines whose background is in computer programming came up with the concept. "In 2013, I started a non-profit computer programming/game development education organization focused on kids. We are called the Seattle App Academy. We’ve been piloting our programs via the Lafayette Elementary enrichment curriculum."

Jerry's View: A tip of the hat to a departed friend 

 I found this old picture of me. I was with a fishing buddy named Dave Stamborsky. Dave passed away about a year ago. I miss him. 

  He was a demon fisherman and we were fishing for steelhead one winter day on the Stillaguamish River. I take heart in the tragedy of the recent landslide there. I fished not far from that very area and remember the sheer cliff faces cut through by the river. I am not surprised there are landslides. It is a dangerous area.
This day was icy cold and the crust on the  snowy river bank was pretty firm so we headed upstream. We had gotten about a quarter mile and Dave, who was 30 pounds heavier than I, kept  breaking through the crust and pulling his entrapped leg out of the crust. He was fast running out of breath and suggested we forget it and go back down to the car. I said okay even though I was lighter, there was no way I could carry him. I suggested he just sit down and I would just push him back down to the car on his bottom.
