Learning Python by Doing

Learning Python by Doing

Learning to code can seem unrewarding at first. With some languages, you need to go through a complicated process to get even a simple result. Suppose you want to write a Java program that outputs “Hello world.” You have to create a class, put a function called “main” into it, compile it, and run Java on the class file. You can't do anything with less effort than that.

JavaScript: It's not Just for Browsers Any More

JavaScript: It's not Just for Browsers Any More

Most people who know a little about Internet tech know that JavaScript is the scripting language for Web pages. It adds interaction, verifies form inputs, and makes pages livelier and more useful. Not as many people know that JavaScript is one of the fastest-growing languages for server-side development. Today a website can use the same language behind the scenes that it uses on its pages, allowing tighter connections between client and server.

5 Reasons to Choose Python for Your Next Backend Coding Project

5 Reasons to Choose Python for Your Next Backend Coding Project

The backend has come a long way since PHP first arrived on the scene. During the past few years programmers have been flocking to other languages for their server-side needs.

One of the most popular choices has been the Python language. Python makes it easy to employ modern programming techniques and has many powerful libraries that speed up development time. We've compiled five reasons why it's worth learning Python for your next backend coding project.

Will We Be Able to "Recode" Our DNA?

Will We Be Able to "Recode" Our DNA?

Our DNA is, in a sense, the operating code for our bodies. We can describe it as sequences of base-4 symbols. If we just had the documentation for the hardware and the operating system, we could change the code to fix bugs. We could correct copying errors. People could avoid passing on genetic diseases to their children.

Looking at the Next Generation Computer Interface Devices

Looking at the Next Generation Computer Interface Devices

We have all seen it happen in the movies. A person walks into a room and says “lights” and the lights in the room come on. Sometimes, these fictional characters can operate their computer through an interface built into the kitchen table while they have their morning coffee. Then, there is the character that pulls up a 3-D display in mid-air then interacts with it, molding and shaping the data with simple gestures. 10 years ago this may have just been fiction, but with today’s computer interface advances, some of these “fictions” are quickly becoming a reality. The MIT Technology review wrote an article that highlights some of the interfaces that will someday become mainstream. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

Programming Robots to "Feel": Advancing Haptic Sensations

Programming Robots to "Feel": Advancing Haptic Sensations

Advanced robotics sounded like a sci-fi enterprise a mere decade ago, and now we're living in a time where engineers create things we thought we'd never see. While some of this falls under robots demonstrating amazing physical prowess in rough terrain, developments are underway to do more complex things.

Securing the Internet of Things with OTrP

Securing the Internet of Things with OTrP

Security is vital to the devices on the IoT, and too often it's not strong enough. Botnets grab up connected devices that aren't properly secured. When in industry play critical safety roles, the stakes are even higher. A compromised device regulating a machine could make it catch fire. A dangerous condition could go unreported, or false alarms could draw attention and resources away from real problems. These devices need to aim for six sigma security — 99.999996% defect-free operation. Meeting this need will require a radically new approach to their software.

How Far Can the Self-Taught Programmer Go?

How Far Can the Self-Taught Programmer Go?

In 1968, there was a bright high school student who learned about this new thing called “computer programming.” The school had a teletype connection to a college computer, and a speaker from the college came to talk about a brand-new programming language called BASIC. The student spent many days after school in the teletype room, creating code on a big roll of yellow paper and trying things out. His programs predicted basketball scores based on past games, set up computer dating, and played Mancala.
