In this introduction to computer programming course, you’ll learn and practice key computer science concepts by building your own versions of popular web applications. You’ll learn Python, a powerful, easy-to-learn, and widely used programming language, and you’ll explore computer science basics, as you build your own search engine and social network. You’ll learn the programming language Python, and you’ll explore foundational concepts in computer science. Most importantly, you’ll start thinking like a software engineer by solving interesting problems (how to build a web crawler or a social network) using computer programming. This course is a first step into the world of computer science, and whether you want to become a software engineer, or collaborate with software engineers, this course is for you. You’ll be prepared for intermediate-level computer science classes when you’ve mastered the concepts covered in this course.

"Ascertain the meaning before consulting this dictionary," warns the author of this collection of deliberately satirical misdefinitions.

Amazon.com Review
Warning: If you aren't a true-blue geek, you won't even have a clue as to why this cracked glossary of computing terms is supposed to be funny. But if you're capable of finding humor in jokes about OO programming, TCP/IP, Bjarne Stroustrup, and operating system kernels, The Computer Contradictionary is truly hilarious. Sample: "ISAM … One of the most successful data-security systems so far devised. Information is protected from all but the most persistent, patient, and devious." If you're even tempted to smile, you'll enormously enjoy British author Stan Kelly-Bootle's witty, urbane, and well-informed parody.

From man's earliest battles to the combat visions of the future, the Weapons at War series richly illustrates the history of weaponry throughout the ages - and what weapons will be like in the future. Despite amazing technological advancements appearing on the battlefield, one of today's most powerful weapons has remained virtually unchanged for nearly six centuries. Artillery cannons are still the only guaranteed all-weather, day or night, weapons systems that are immune to interference by electronic means. Trace the evolution of cannons from the smooth bore muzzle loaders of the turn of the century to the precision, computer controlled long range guns of Desert Storm.
