Install Ubuntu Linux Alongside Windows 8 in 10 easy steps

I have just obtained my first laptop that contains Windows 8 and therefore my first laptop with UEFI and secure boot enabled. The hardware The hardware that I used to compile this guide is the Dell Inspiron 3521 laptop which you can pick up for around £400 at Argos. The Dell Inspiron 3521 has 6 gigabytes of RAM, an Intel core I3 processor, a 1 terabyte hard-drive and a 15.1 inch display. Strategy The actual strategy for installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 8 isn't much different to installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 7, Vista or even XP. 1. This is the most important step in the whole process, especially if you harbour any hopes of booting into Windows again should the worst happen.

It used to be the case that when you bought a computer you received a set of disks or a CD that had a rescue image on it. 2. Stencyl.

Remembering when and what and how many can be a chore - as you know! But your doctors also need to keep all this information straight. Help the docs out. Maintain a master list of your medications, including: name of medicine when taken frequency (times per day) Give a copy of this list to each medical professional you visit. Do keep your list up to date, though, or it won't help - it might even mislead. Looking for an easy way to manage and share your medication regimen?

CS50: Introduction to Computer Science. CS50x is Harvard College's introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming for majors and non-majors alike, with or without prior programming experience.

CS50: Introduction to Computer Science

An entry-level course taught by David J. Malan, CS50x teaches students how to think algorithmically and solve problems efficiently. Topics include abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development. Languages include C, PHP, and JavaScript plus SQL, CSS, and HTML. Problem sets inspired by real-world domains of biology, cryptography, finance, forensics, and gaming. Students who earn a satisfactory score on 9 problem sets (i.e., programming assignments) and a final project will receive a certificate from HarvardX. Audit this Course.

Transform Your Photos with a Magic Word

Pierre Yves-Laffont has a solution: sleep in, take a photo later, and let a computer do the work of turning back time. He and other computer scientists at Brown University have come up with a program that can edit outdoor photographs using keywords or phrases like “more snow”, “less gloomy”, or “more daylight”. To build it, the researchers funneled 8500 images from over 100 outdoor webcams into a massive database, and used crowdsourcing and machine learning to teach the tool to recognize more than 40 attributes of outdoor scenes. Is it sunny? Raining? To use it, you simply upload a photo and enter a keyword. The photo editor can automatically change a photo to a new weather scheme, or you can use an interactive version for more control. Researchers can now gain access to the whole dataset.

C++ faq - The Definitive C++ Book Guide and List. Swift Programming Language. Playgrounds and REPL in Xcode Much like Swift Playgrounds for iPad, playgrounds in Xcode make writing Swift code incredibly simple and fun.

Swift Programming Language

Type a line of code and the result appears immediately. You can then Quick Look the result from the side of your code, or pin that result directly below. The result view can display graphics, lists of results, or graphs of a value over time. You can open the Timeline Assistant to watch a complex view evolve and animate, great for experimenting with new UI code, or to play an animated SpriteKit scene as you code it.

Read-Eval-Print-Loop (REPL). Fast and Powerful From its earliest conception, Swift was built to be fast. Swift is a successor to both the C and Objective-C languages. Designed for Safety Swift eliminates entire classes of unsafe code. Another safety feature is that by default Swift objects can never be nil. Objective-C Interoperability To get started with Swift, download Xcode and follow the tutorials available on the Resources tab.
