Want to become more hireable for a high-paying tech job in just nine weeks? A new trade school in San Francisco believes they can make that happen. “Dev Bootcamp” takes on coding novices and works them nonstop for nine weeks to help them master the coding world.  The success rate?  Pretty high.  More than 90% of graduates from the first two classes landed full-time jobs paying more than $80,000 per year on average.  More from Mashable here.

It’s not a fate most of us would wish on our worst enemy, but Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away on Wednesday in Rio de Janeiro, claimed that continuing to work was what sustained him. Niemeyer outlived his wife, one of his own children, and countless friends (like Le Corbusier). He was designing new buildings up until a few weeks ago.
