Well, here we are, the final week. Even though the class felt really short, due to it only lasting two months, I still had some fun here and there. And I did learn a few things.
The first being HTML, which was interesting to see how websites are created. The hardest part, when it came to coding, was aligning the text around the images. I can’t imagine how hard the really advance stuff is if something as simple as aligning text gave me trouble. Only regret I have about that assignment was that I couldn’t do more to the page, such as embedding videos for each anime suggestion, or giving each interest it’s own web page. Might learn more about HTML after this class.
The second was understanding how truly important and fragile security is in this day and age. Especially after that whole NSA leak. Now that it’s getting harder and harder to maintain one’s security on the internet it might be best to start getting into the field of network security. Otherwise we might not have much defense against those that seek to cause a lot of damage to us.
I would have to say the most fun assignment would have to be the Robotics blog post. Reason I say that is that when I first started the assignment I played the first two Portal games and watch both 2001 and 2010 movies. But once the assignment didn’t give me all that much material to work with, I decided to try something else. The result being claiming that Rob the Robot from Forbidden Planet being the first robot to showcase the laws of robotics. It was interesting in learning which robot was he first to have the laws built into him, and the movie is also pretty good so that made it more fun.
Overall I say this was a fun and informative class, albeit very short. I hope my blogs do help out those that need it. I wish the best to Dr. Brown and the rest of the class. Take care.
