“Something’s wrong with your keyboard,” a friend borrowing my laptop would say. “When I type, all that comes out is gibberish!” “Nothing’s wrong with my keyboard,” I would reply with a grin. “It’s the layout on your keyboard that’s wrong!” What usually follows is a long lecture on how the Dvorak keyboard layout is better than QWERTY in every way.
This course is the largest of the introductory programming courses and is one of the largest courses at Stanford. Topics focus on the introduction to the engineering of computer applications emphasizing modern software engineering principles: object-oriented design, decomposition, encapsulation, abstraction, and testing. Programming Methodology teaches the widely-used Java programming language along with good software engineering principles.
I spent most of yesterday afternoon working on a paper I’m co-writing. It was one of those days when the writing came easy. I was moving from topic to topic, but then I realized that I was reaching too far backward – I was explaining things which I shouldn’t have had to explain to the audience I was trying to reach. When I first started writing, one of the pieces of advice that I heard was that you should always imagine that you are writing to a particular person.
It's fairly easy to multiply two numbers that are close to the same multiple of 10. The algorithm for doing it is called “Nikhilam Navatascaramam Dasata.” It is part of a system of algorithms and mnemonics to remember them, collectively known as “Vedic Math”, that was developed by Jagadguru Swami Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj in the early 20th century. The easiest way to explain the algorithm is to give examples, and explain the algorithm along the way.

Imagine that you discovered a gold mine (or, to be more realistic, a program that beats the odds of the stock market) and would like to convince a wealthy corporation to give you some money to pursue your discovery. Obviously, it is not a very smart idea for you to reveal your secret---whether it is the location of the gold mine or your algorithm for milking wall street---to prove to the other party that indeed you are truthful. In brief, the problem that needs to be solved is: How could one party convince the other that it knows a secret without revealing that secret?! In many computer applications, the above problem arises and there are techniques that allow for one to reveal the fact that they "know" something without revealing that thing. These techniques are called "zero-knowledge proof techniques".
