This webclass deals with important aspects of today’s world such as storing data, the basic structure of a computer and algorithms.
We are becoming increasingly dependent on computers, but they cannot work without us either! After all, someone has to tell them what to do. That requires people who enjoy devising ever-smarter solutions and innovations. Computing scientists design, improve and implement the software and computer systems that businesses and our social life cannot do without.
In this web class we give an introduction into computing science. We discuss challenges that are important in this digital world: How do I save large files in a compact way? How do I encrypt my data? How easily is encryption cracked? What can be computed and what not? Can we actually compute everything that is theoretically computable before the last stars in the galaxy fade out? On a simulated computer we will also show you what happens in this machine. During the web class you will write some simple programs, but previous programming experience is not required.
Enrollment for the web classes is now closed. You can enroll again on the 31st of January.If you have any questions regarding this web class, you can reach us at webklassen rug.nl or have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.
