I've always thought that if I retired, I'd more or less do what I had been doing as my job - except without the meetings and reports. That is, write interesting and fulfilling software.

In this episode of Talk Python To Me, we are back together with Philip Guo to discuss his research project aimed to improve the learning to code experience for older adults (those 60 - 85 years old).
