Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code.

From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. 

Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: 

"Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code.

I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books.

Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn?

This site is here to help you figure that out."


Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time.

Free to use. 

Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10

A Curated Audio-Visual Masterpiece: A Color Map of the Sun by Derek Vincent Smith

Ra's insight:

I don't even understand half of what he has done in this film but it is captivating. The music is pretty, the composition of the images is clever and there are moments of levity to break it up. A new slant on curation to create something new. Interesting watching.

Here's a great curation story. Derek Vincent Smith also known musically as Pretty Lights has published a video album that is a curation masterpiece since its very inception. To create a uniquely personal sound and style Derek has brought to the recording studio tens of musicians to record and master 25 vinyls from which he would then sample, remix and curate the final tracks of his new album.

The videos of the tracks, (here is a short playlist I've created of some of the most representative ones) are equally impressive, as they have been produced by capturing imagery that would be otherwise be considered utterly useless and curated with graphic and visual effects of all kinds as to generate some truly visual masterpieces.

Check the story of the making of the video here: http://youtu.be/jOZtWO7P6-g 

The results, in my humble view, are truly stunning. 

See this video to get an idea of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RlcrCRSY4Y&feature=share&list=PLCoh11EkrUagtT06Dlv4ayybfF1BlHNHc 

Here we have a music artist who has not simply written music and recorded it, but has conscioulsy produced musical content to the curate from it something new and unique. 

Curation at its best: 10/10

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。
