In Computer Science, a string is a linear sequence of characters, symbols, words, or units that is treated as a unit. As a programmer, you find that the most common usage of this term is in reference to a sentence; Most often sentences your program is meant to display.

As such, the title of this section to me is both a pun and a definition. You need not understand or appreciate the pun to understand what you will find here. Essentially this is a list of lessons learnt in 2010 in form of simple strings - One line sentences or phrases. You will also find that I tag the teachers of these lessons.
