Cryptography is present in everyday life, from paying with a credit card to using the telephone. Learn all about making and breaking puzzles in computing. This course assumes previous programming experience, comparable to what is covered by the Udacity CS101 course, as well as some understanding of probability and theory of computation and algorithm analysis. Explore how secrets are written and shared, as well as what can go wrong when cryptography is misused or implemented badly.
Following the concepts introduced in Responsive Design Fundamentals, senior author James Williamson demonstrates the practical applications of responsive design and shows how to enrich the appearance and behavior of your website across multiple devices. First, discover how to plan your design and take advantage of CSS media queries to create multiple layouts. Then make your site navigation respond to changing screen sizes with CSS and jQuery, and display media like images and video fluidly. Plus, discover how to take advantage of mobile capabilities like touch events and HTML5 forms to enhance the experience of mobile visitors. James also shows how to effectively manage resources and optimize the performance of your site.
Learn how to program all the major systems of a robotic car from the leader of Google and Stanford's autonomous driving teams. This class will teach you basic methods in Artificial Intelligence, including: probabilistic inference, planning and search, localization, tracking and control, all with a focus on robotics. Extensive programming examples and assignments will apply these methods in the context of building self-driving cars. You should either already know Python, or have enough experience with another language to be confident you can pick up what you need on your own. Fortunately, Python was built to be easy to learn, read, and use. If you already know another programming language, you'll be coding in Python in less than an hour. Additionally, knowledge of probability and linear algebra will be helpful. This course will cover probabilistic inference, planning and search, localization, tracking and control, all with a focus on robotics.
Build rich, dynamic, and interactive web applications with the Microsoft AJAX Library. This video series, presented by Asli Bilgin, explores not only the slick user interface controls, but goes deeper into the backbone of a web application. You'll also learn how to work with security, data access, and services orientation so that you can build a robust end-to-end application using Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX and the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit.
