Lesson: Object-Oriented Programming Concepts (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language) If you've never used an object-oriented programming language before, you'll need to learn a few basic concepts before you can begin writing any code. This lesson will introduce you to objects, classes, inheritance, interfaces, and packages. Each discussion focuses on how these concepts relate to the real world, while simultaneously providing an introduction to the syntax of the Java programming language. What Is an Object? An object is a software bundle of related state and behavior. Software objects are often used to model the real-world objects that you find in everyday life.

It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by adults and children all over the world to learn programming and digital making.
Frontiers of Computational Thinking: A SXSW Report—Stephen Wolfram Blog Last week I spoke at SXSW Interactive 2015 in Austin, Texas. Here’s a slightly edited transcript: A Most Productive Year Well, hello again. I’ve actually talked about computation three times before at SXSW. And I have to say when I first agreed to give this talk, I was worried that I would not have anything at all new to say.

Just Landed: Processing, Twitter, MetaCarta & Hidden Data I have a friend who has a Ph.D in bioinformatics. Over a beer last week, we ended up discussing the H1N1 flu virus, epidemic modeling, and countless other fascinating and somewhat scary things. She told me that epidemiologists have been experimenting with alternate methods of creating transmission models – specifically, she talked about a group that was using data from the Where’s George? project to build a computer model for tracking and predicting the spread of contagions (which I read about again in this NYTimes article two days later). This got me thinking about the data that is hidden in various social network information streams – Facebook & Twitter updates in particular. People share a lot of information in their tweets – some of it shared intentionally, and some of it which could be uncovered with some rudimentary searching.

Why H2O? H2O is for data scientists and business analysts who need scalable and fast machine learning. H2O is an open source predictive analytics platform. Unlike traditional analytics tools, H2O provides a combination of extraordinary math and high performance parallel processing with unrivaled ease of use. H2O speaks the language of data science with support for R, Python, Scala, Java and a robust REST API. Smart business applications are powered by H2O’s NanoFastTM Scoring Engine. Get H2O! Quarks Place This library provides a rich collection of 2D GUI controls for your sketch. It also supports multiple windows and a simple but customizable event handling system. G4P now uses double buffering for all visible controls and although it reduces the workload on the processor it requires more memory. When creating a control it is now necessary to specify a rectangular area of the display for the control, and the control must fit inside this area. So all visible controls (apart from GWindow) requires a minimum of 5 parameters.
Data visualization with Processing, Part 1: An introduction to the language and environment Although many open source projects are driven to build alternatives for existing applications, there are numerous projects that represent new and innovative works. Processing is one of those programs. Processing began at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT's) Media Lab in 2001, created by Ben Fry and Casey Reas, though it has contributions from Carnegie Mellon; the University of California, Los Angeles; Miami University; and others. The original goal for Processing was the development of a graphical sketchbook and environment that could be used to teach (graphically) the fundamentals of computer science. It has since evolved into an environment that can be used to create professional works for graphical visualization. A community has grown around it, building libraries that evolve the language and environment for animation, visualization, vision, network programming, and many other applications.

GCSE Electronics - Measurements in Electronics Measurements in Electronics Many students in their electronics studies have difficulties in understanding the units used in electronics. Whatever units you are dealing with amps(current), volts (voltage), watts(power) then the unit of measurement is broken down into smaller and larger units. If you are refering to the electrical measurement of amps, 1 amp is a rather large unit used in power electronics, smaller units are required in electronics.
