Computer And Technology Articles

With advances in technology, demand for computer engineering specialists is high. At the 2006 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) announces it will create a program to deliver technology and resources to targeted schools in the least developed countries. The project became the One Laptop per Child Consortium (OLPC) founded by Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of MIT’s Media Lab. The first offering to the public required the buyer to purchase one to be given to a child in the developing world as a condition of acquiring a machine for themselves. By 2011, over 2.4 million laptops had been shipped.

This unit provides a practical and theoretical overview of programming for computer games, games design, industries and audiences. Students will learn how to critically evaluate current debates in games design and apply practical production skills. Includes industries and gaming cultures, narrative and storytelling in games, … Read more

IEEE Computer Society Predicts The Future Of Tech

American Journal of Computer Science and Information Technology (AJCSIT) is an intercontinental free access, peer reviewed journal. While many early digital computers were based on similar designs, such as the IAS and its copies, others are unique designs, like the CSIRAC. Built in Sydney, Australia by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research for use in its Radio physics Laboratory in Sydney, CSIRAC was designed by British-born Trevor Pearcey, and used unusual 12-hole paper tape. It was transferred to the Department of Physics at the University of Melbourne in 1955 and remained in service until 1964.

Students who do the Schools units that relate to computer games or animation may incur costs for external storage media such as USB or HDD drives. Level 5 students may complete a Live Project on the Professional Development unit – this may incur some travel costs. In team-based projects, the future video game designer … Read more

What Is The Difference Between Information Technology And Computer Science?

Employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics , computer programmers can make upwards of $79,000 per year. Most computer programmers have at least a bachelor’s degree; of course, the more education you have, the higher your earning potential will be. And while many work in offices, there is a growing space for computer programmers to be able to work remotely. However, this shift has also caused a projected decline of 7 percent for hires in the industry from now till 2026. This is because many companies are outsourcing programming to foreign folks outside of the U.S.
