As Computer Coding Classes Swell, So Does Cheating by Jess Bidgood and Jeremy B. Merrill

New York Times May 29, 2017

This is an interesting article depicting an area that I had not thought of in regards to cheating.  Since I have not had opportunity, yet, to explore code beyond the basic HTML where everything is fairly routine I was unaware of how different each code can/should be from programmer to programmer.  This article explains that with the uptick of enrollment, complexity of homework, and availability of collaborative resources it becomes very easy for students to take shortcuts or blur the line between asking for help and plagiarizing.

I am glad that I read this articulate article, it helped me to gain insight into an aspect of coding I was unaware of.
