Introduction to. Computing. Explorations in. Language, Logic, and Machines. David Evans. University of Virginia. This chapter defines the notion of computing, discusses the concepts of with an introduction to the development of software, called computer programming. Introduction to Computer. Computer. A computer is an electronic device, operating under the control of instructions stored in its own memory that can accept data.
From a technical stand point, the following are the valid definitions and hence the distinction between the two terms. A hardware is a name that describes all the electronic, electrical and mechanical components of a computer together with its peripheral devices. Explanation of the terms Peripheral devices referred to above are: input devices e. These are devices that are used at the periphery or at the side or alongside the computer. Documentation refers to, in its simplest form, the manual that helps the user to know how the different parts of the software work, how to install it, uninstall, trouble shoot or as a reference book. The definition of software is not complete until documentation is included. This is far from the truth.
Anything that exposes these assets to the outside world, including Messengers the ability to send images to stakeholders for input and Portfolios public facing image galleries , are also carefully scrutinized and secured appropriately.
This will be applied a little differently to our Enterprise vs Web and Business tier customers. For Web and Business customers, they will be able to apply these granular permissions to users and give them operational roles across their entire library.
Enterprise customers will be able to apply these permissions to assets at any point in their libraries. This means that they will be able maintain highly customizable levels of security right down to each Folder, Collection, and Project.
Users can be given permissions such as Owner, Editor, or View Only; or even completely restricted from accessing content in certain areas of the library. Needless to say, from a technical perspective, these are complex issues. Does the user have Share permission?
How about Files permission? That will allow them to download the files for local use. Owners will be able to delegate permissions to other users.
Admins will have global access to everything including account information. Regarding feedback, this year we decided to focus resources on the computer lab, so that you could get immediate feedback on your workings.
We may revisit this decision for the next year. You should attend only one of these, as shown in your personal timetable. It is extremely important that you attend your allocated lab session: computer programming needs to be learned by actually doing it yourself as opposed to just listening to someone talk about it , so although the lectures will introduce the relevant concepts, the main focus will be on the lab sessions.
Lecture notes and lab exercise sheets will be uploaded on a weekly basis, in sections labelled "Week 1", "Week 2" and so on, below. Scroll down to see these. Note that you will be required to submit your answers to the lab exercises via the "lab report" links in the relevant weekly sections.
These do not contribute to your grade, but will be used to monitor your engagement with the module in accordance with the School's Student Engagement Policy. This means, in particular, that if you do not submit lab reports then you may be contacted by the School office and required to attend make-up sessions.
The tests will be computer based as opposed to written and held in the usual lab sessions in weeks 7 and Instead of a final exam, the bulk of your assessment will take the form of a project for which you will write an individual report.
