Startup Engineering - Stanford University About the Course Spiritual sequel to Peter Thiel's CS183 course on startups. Bridges the gap between academic computer science and production software engineering. Fast-paced introduction to key tools and techniques (command line, dotfiles, text editor, distributed version control, debugging, testing, documentation, reading code, deployments), featuring guest appearances by senior engineers from successful startups and large-scale academic projects. Over the course of the class, students will build a command line application, expose it as a web service, and then link other students' applications and services together to build an HTML5 mobile app.
Free Online Classes - Find Free Online Classes If you’re new to learning through the internet, want to test out a class, need to brush up on some skills for your credit classes, or just want to learn a few new facts, you’ll want to check out one of the many free courses available online. Although these courses don’t provide college credit, they do give students a lot of information and can be a valuable supplement to your regular studies. There are two main types of online courses: independent courses that are made exclusively for the internet and open courseware classes that are designed for actual classrooms. Independent Courses Independent courses are made especially for e-learners.
Robotic Xylophone With the holiday season approaching, we are always looking for a way to add a little Christmas spirit to our office. This year, we thought it would be awesome to have a musical instrument that we could control with a NerdKits microcontroller kit, and have it play holiday music. Keeping true with the NerdKits spirit, we decided to build a xylophone, build the whole thing from scratch, and teach about solenoids and shift registers along the way!
Peter Thiel's CS183: Startup - Class 1 Notes Essay Peter Thiel’s CS183: Startup - Class 1 Notes Essay Here is an essay version of my class notes from Class 1 of CS183: Startup. Errors and omissions are my own. Credit for good stuff is Peter’s entirely.
Universities with the Best Free Online Courses Free online courses are offered by real schools. Learn which courses are available, what topics they cover and which ones lead to real college credit. Online Courses for Credit All of the schools listed below are well-known universities with a variety of free online course offerings. Open textbook An open textbook is a textbook licensed under an open copyright license, and made available online to be freely used by students, teachers and members of the public. Many open textbooks are distributed in either print, e-book, or audio formats that may be downloaded or purchased at little or no cost. Part of the broader open educational resources movement, open textbooks increasingly are seen as a solution to challenges with traditionally published textbooks, such as access and affordability concerns. Open textbooks were identified in the New Media Consortium's 2010 Horizon Report as a component of the rapidly progressing adoption of open content in higher education.
Solenoid Theory V2.01 18-Mar-03 1. What is a solenoid? A solenoid converts electrical power into linear mechanical power. Whereas a motor converts electrical power into a continuous rotational mechanical power, a solenoid has a finite, generally only short, mechanical movement. Solenoids are normally built by winding a coil of wire around a moveable soft iron core. MIT Mathematics Mathematics and computer science are closely related fields. Problems in computer science are often formalized and solved with mathematical methods. It is likely that many important problems currently facing computer scientists will be solved by researchers skilled in algebra, analysis, combinatorics, logic and/or probability theory, as well as computer science. The purpose of this program is to allow students to study a combination of these mathematical areas and potential application areas in computer science. Required subjects include linear algebra (18.06, 18.700 or 18.701) because it is so broadly used; discrete mathematics (18.062J or 18.200) to give experience with proofs and the necessary tools for analyzing algorithms; and software construction (6.005 or 6.033) where mathematical issues may arise.
List of academic databases and search engines the general list of search engines for all-purpose search engines that can be used for academic purposesbibliographic databases for information about databases giving bibliographic information about finding books and journal articles. Note that "free" or "subscription" can refer both to the availability of the database or of the journal articles included. This has been indicated as precisely as possible in the lists below.

This handbook is designed to help educators find, use, develop and share OER to enhance their effectiveness online and in the classroom. Although no prior knowledge of OER is required, some experience using a computer and browsing the Internet will be helpful. For example, it is preferable that you have experience using a word processor (e.g.
An attempt to access a memory card (MMC) using a PIC with limited RAM (PIC16F877A) Video of my PIC16F877A based MMC digital voice recorder: This is my first digital voice recorder which is made using a mid range PIC with a total RAM of only 256 bytes. Generally people may say that we cannot access MMC/SD card using a microcontroller with a RAM < 512. I had seen such posts and comments in many electronics forums, sites etc. But now i could comment it is also possible to access MMC/SD using a uC with limited RAM but may have much limitations compared to uC with enough RAM.

Google Scholar Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines. Released in beta in November 2004, the Google Scholar index includes most peer-reviewed online journals of Europe and America's largest scholarly publishers, plus scholarly books and other non-peer reviewed journals. It is similar in function to the freely available CiteSeerX and getCITED. It is also similar to the subscription-based tools, Elsevier's Scopus and Thomson ISI's Web of Science. Its advertising slogan – "Stand on the shoulders of giants" – is taken from a quote by Isaac Newton and is a nod to the scholars who have contributed to their fields over the centuries, providing the foundation for new intellectual achievements.
