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.

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.

The Tech Jobs That Pay The Best (And How To Get Them)

The Tech Jobs That Pay The Best (And How To Get Them)

Tech is red hot; there's no other way to put it. There's just not enough qualified candidates to meet demand in the world of programming, and that's a situation that is expected to continue for at least a few years. That's great news for job seekers, as it means great salaries right out of the gate. If you want to get a taste of the possibilities, check out these top-paying jobs for tech workers with programming skill.

How To Land A Job As A Python Programmer

How To Land A Job As A Python Programmer

If you're in the market for a Python programming job, there's good news. The language has surged in terms of demand in recent years, now rivaling JavaScript in the scope of its use in the business and scientific realms. Salaries are also very good, coming in at $70,000 at the entry level and ranging all the way up to $115,000 for very experienced developers.

The Coming Quantum Computing Age

The Coming Quantum Computing Age

Quantum computing is a strange and charming discipline. In normal computing we have bits. They're 1 or 0. Quantum computing has qubits. Like Noah, you might ask, "What's a qubit?" It's a bit that’s like Schroedinger's cat, which can be alive and dead at the same time. It can be 1, 0, or both at once.

Coding for Cutting Edge Tech

Coding for Cutting Edge Tech

What does it take to bring a software idea to life? Lots of skilled development work. The initial idea is vital, but as Thomas Edison once said, "Two percent is genius, and ninety-eight percent is hard work." Someone devises an idea, such as blockchains, augmented reality, the World Wide Web, or social networks. Turning it into a deliverable product takes the work of designers, software developers, and testers. Lots of work.

DaVinci Coders form IBM Watson AI X-Prize Team

DaVinci Coders is excited to announce that the students in our upcoming JavaScript course will serve as the foundational team for competing in the recently announced IBM Watson AI X-Prize, a $5 million competition designed around using artificial intelligence to solve some of the world’s greatest problems.

Margaret Hamilton and Apollo 11

Margaret Hamilton and Apollo 11

The Apollo 11 landing was a close thing. Shortly before touching down on the Moon, the Eagle's onboard computer fell behind in its real-time navigation calculations. The result could have been a disaster except that the software was clever enough to recover from a user error.
