The Lean Startup Circle Wiki / Case Studies Eric Ries Remarks I've been really inspired by this case study and the resulting discussion. I get asked all the time for more examples, more case studies, and more implementation details of lean startup techniques. Are any of you interested in collaborating on a regular series of case studies like this one, for presentation on my blog (and other venues where I am asked for guest posts).
Introductory Human Physiology The goal of this course is to provide an introduction to human physiology. The students learn to recognize and explain the basic concepts that govern each organ and organ system and their integration to maintain homeostasis, as well as some clinical aspects of failure of these systems. The organ systems covered include: nervous, muscle, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, male and female reproductive, gastrointestinal, and urinary. This human physiology course is targeted to undergraduate and graduate students with an elementary background in biology. In a typical undergraduate setting, this course would fulfill requirements for students applying to professional health science programs such as medical school, nursing, physician assistant, pathologists’ assistant, physical therapy, and doctorate of physical therapy.
DARPA Grand Challenge (2005) The second driverless car competition of the DARPA Grand Challenge was a 212 km (132 mi) off-road course that began at 6:40am on October 8, 2005, near the California/Nevada state line. All but one of the 23 finalists in the 2005 race surpassed the 11.78 km (7.32 mi) distance completed by the best vehicle in the 2004 race. Five vehicles successfully completed the course: Beer Bottle Pass Vehicles in the 2005 race passed through three narrow tunnels and navigated more than 100 sharp left and right turns. How To Build a Web Startup – Lean LaunchPad Edition If you’re an experienced coder and user interface designer you think nothing is easier than diving into Ruby on Rails, Node.js and Balsamiq and throwing together a web site. (Heck, in Silicon Valley even the waiters can do it.) But for the rest of us mortals whose eyes glaze over at the buzzwords, the questions are, “How do I get my great idea on the web? What are the steps in building a web site?” And the most important question is, “How do I use the business model canvas and Customer Development to test whether this is a real business?”
The Modern and the Postmodern In this course we shall examine how the idea of "the modern" develops at the end of the 18th century in European intellectual history, and how being modern (or progressive, or hip) became one of the crucial criteria for understanding and evaluating cultural change during the last two hundred years in the West. We shall be concerned with the relations between culture and historical change, and our materials shall be drawn from a variety of areas: philosophy, the novel, and critical theory. Finally, we shall try to determine what it means to be modern today, and whether it makes sense to go beyond the modern to the postmodern. The Modern and the Postmodern traces the intertwining of the idea of modernity with the idea of art or culture from the late 18th century until the present. Beginning with the Enlightenment, Western cultures have invested heavily in the notion that the world can be made more of a home for human beings through the development of culture (and technology).
Take Stanford's AI Course For Free Online Not too long ago we told you about how you can access the course materials for Stanford University's introduction to computer science course. If you're looking for something a bit more advanced, Stanford will offer its artificial intelligence class online for free this fall. It will run from Sept 26 - Dec 16. Online enrollment ends Sept 10. The course will be taught by Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig. The course will include online lectures by the two, and according to the course website both professors will be available for online discussions. Agile Web Development That Works Agile web development is not a specific process, action, or a daylong exercise. Agile is a mindset, an attitude with which a project is undertaken. It means streamlining the project, taking away time-sucks, performing frequent sanity checks, and making sure that you’re not spending excessive time on things that don’t add value to the project. It’s about spending quality time on actions that add value to the website and make it better, and taking away time and energy from parts of the process that cause headaches. Your team will reach the same goals and milestones, but in half the time or less. In this article, I’ll show you how the agile project management method can be applied to developing websites.
A Brief History of Humankind About the Course About 2 million years ago our human ancestors were insignificant animals living in a corner of Africa. Their impact on the world was no greater than that of gorillas, zebras, or chickens. Today humans are spread all over the world, and they are the most important animal around. The very future of life on Earth depends on the ideas and behavior of our species. You (YOU!) Can Take Stanford's 'Intro to AI' Course Next Quarter, For Free Stanford has been offering portions of its robotics coursework online for a few years now, but professors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig are kicking things up a notch (okay, lots of notches) with next semester's CS221: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence. For the first time, you can take this course, along with several hundred Stanford undergrads, without having to fill out an application, pay tuition, or live in a dorm. This is more than just downloading materials and following along with a live stream; you're actually going to have to do all the same work as the Stanford students. There's a book you'll need to get. There will be at least 10 hours per week of studying, along with weekly graded homework assignments.
Agile Joomla Web Design: The Planning Phase The most important part of the website design process happens way before one line of code is written or one graphic created. We, of course, are talking about the planning phase of an agile Joomla web design project. The planning phase is the most important part of the process and lays down the foundation in which the entire project is built from. Nutrition for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Module 1: Introduction to Nutrition Science If you are what you eat, you should probably know something about how to eat! In this introductory module, you will learn about the field of nutrition science, the basics of nutrition research and some important terms that will set the stage for the remainder of the class.
Online Code Repository The goal is to have working code for all the algorithms in the book in a variety of languages. So far, we have Java, Lisp and Python versions of most of the algorithms. There is also some old code in C++, C# and Prolog, but these are not being maintained. We also have a directory full of data files. Let email@example.com know what languages you'd like to see, and if you're willing to help.
