  14. 40 Programming Myths: The real art of tactical programming English | 2017 | ASIN: B073Z743DY | 28 pages | AZW3/EPUB/PDF (converted) | 927 Kb 40 Programming Myths The real art of tactical programming All the recommendations and programming tips that are collected in this book; I give based on personal experience. I hope they will help the beginning programmers to become better! Content: The general myths about programming Myths about teaching programming Myths about limitations Myths about the capabilities of programmers Myths about developer tools How to become a programmer? The image of a geek - an awkward introvert in an elongated sweatshirt, which reads comic books and is well versed in science - is actively popularized in society. "Smart is the new sexy", - said Howard from the series "The Big Bang Theory" almost 10 years ago. Since that time, oil has only been poured into the furnace - Mark Zuckerberg, who wears sandals on socks, and Sergey Brin, flaunting in Crocs, have become symbols of the generation. They are equal, they are envious. It's no longer a shame to be a botanist, even the opposite - it's embarrassing to be stupid. The apogee of this image is those who are called coders, developers or Software Engineers - programmers. Popularity is explained by the importance of the profession for society. While actors and musicians influence the mood of people, programmers directly change their lives. Remember the world before Uber, Airbnb or Google. Remember it before PayPal, eBay and Facebook. And this is just something that people face directly and regularly. The importance of the profession puts it on a par with the astronauts and scientists, close to the superheroes of comics.
  15. TTC Video - The Art and Craft of Mathematical Problem Solving Course No. 1483 | .AVI, XviD, 640x480 | English, [email protected] kbps, 2 Ch | 24x30 mins | + PDF Guidebook | 4.47 GB Instrucctor: Professor Paul Zeitz Ph.D. | Genre: eLearning, Mathematics One of life's most exhilarating experiences is the "aha!" moment that comes from pondering a mathematical problem and then seeing the way to an elegant solution. And many problems can be solved relatively quickly with the right strategy. For example, how fast can you find the sum of the numbers 1 + 2 + 3 up to 100? This was famously answered in the late 1700s by the 10-year-old Carl Friedrich Gauss, later to become one of history's greatest mathematicians. Young Gauss noticed that by starting at opposite ends of the string of numbers from 1 to 100, each successive pair adds up to 101: 1 + 100=101 2 + 99=101 3 + 98=101 and so on through the 50th pair, 50 + 51=101 Gauss was already thinking like a good problem solver: The sum of the numbers from 1 to 100 is 50 x 101, or 5,050-obtained in seconds and without a calculator! In 24 mind-enriching lectures, The Art and Craft of Mathematical Problem Solving conducts you through scores of problems-at all levels of difficulty-under the inspiring guidance of award-winning Professor Paul Zeitz of the University of San Francisco, a former champion "mathlete" in national and international math competitions and a firm believer that mathematical problem solving is an important skill that can be nurtured in practically everyone. These are not mathematical exercises, which Professor Zeitz defines as questions that you know how to answer by applying a specific procedure. Instead, problems are questions that you initially have no idea how to answer. A problem by its very nature requires exploration, resourcefulness, and adventure-and a rigorous proof is less important than no-holds-barred investigation. Read more Course Lecture Titles: 1.

  16. The Art of Critical Decision Making 24xDVDRip | AVI/XviD, ~556 kb/s | 640x432 | Duration: 12:19:37 | English: MP3, 128 kb/s (2 ch) | + PDF Guide | 2.93 GB Genre: Politics, Sociology Whether simple or complex, private or public, decisions are an essential part of your life. Not only do decisions affect your own life for good or ill, they can also affect the lives of your friends, your family, and your community. Indeed, the ability to make wise, educated decisions is essential to living a successful and fulfilled life. When is the right time for your company to change its business model? Is moving across the country for a new job the best option for you and your family? At what point do you roll out a new product or service currently being tested? Should you sell your house now, or wait until the housing market improves? But making a good decision and avoiding a horrible one is not a chance act. It's a skill-one that can be learned, honed, and perfected. Mastering the art of critical decision making is the key to improving your life at home, at work, or in your community. When you understand the necessary components of a smart decision, you can examine mistakes you might have made in the past and sidestep potential mistakes in the future. And when you know the underlying psychological, social, and emotional components that influence decision making-whether they are your own decisions or the decisions of others-you can make sounder choices that produce better results. Now you can learn to approach the critical decisions in your life with a more seasoned, educated eye with The Art of Critical Decision Making, a fascinating 24-lecture course that explores how individuals, groups, and organizations make effective decisions and offers you tips and techniques to enhance the effectiveness of your own decision making. Taught by award-winning Professor Michael A. Roberto of Bryant University-a scholar of leadership, managerial decision making, and business strategy-this dynamic course is an engaging and practical guide to one of the most fundamental activities in your life. Three Levels of Decision Making The heart of this accessible course is a thorough examination of decision making at three key levels: The individual level: Studying how individuals make decisions reveals a wealth of insights into how-and why-they make particular choices. Most individuals do not examine every possible alternative but instead draw on experience and rules of thumb. Most of us, it turns out, are susceptible to what psychologists call cognitive biases: decision traps that can cause us to make certain systematic mistakes when making choices. You also learn how intuition, surprisingly, is more than just a gut instinct and represents instead a powerful pattern recognition capability. The group level: Because you don't always make choices on your own, it's important to understand decision making at the level of group or team. Here, you try to answer the question of whether groups are "smarter" and more capable of making critical decisions than individuals. The lectures show you problems that typically arise in group decision-making scenarios, including groupthink (the notorious tendency for groups to be pressured into conforming to a particular view) and a lack of synergy between team members. You also learn how groups can overcome these and other problems to make better decisions. The organizational level: Studying decision making on the organizational level requires you to grasp how the structure, systems, and culture of a particular organization shape the behavior of its individual teams and members. Professor Roberto shows you how history's wrong decisions usually cannot be attributed to one wrong decision or poor leader. He also demonstrates how some organizations have encouraged and reliably performed vigilant decision making in the face of risky scenarios. The Key to Effective Decision Making The Art of Critical Decision Making reveals that bad decisions are usually made because of a poorly thought-out decision-making process. If decision makers put more emphasis on how to make a decision, ensure that they remove personal biases, collect information beforehand, glean the diverse perspectives of others, and perform a number of other constructive activities, they can vastly improve the strength and success of the process. Professor Roberto employs the case method used by America's most prestigious business schools, including Harvard University. Designed to expose students to a breadth and depth of real-world examples and scenarios, the case method allows you to compare and contrast various situations as a way to recognize patterns. In doing so, you refine your ability to distinguish between smart and poor decision making. Among the many compelling case studies you engage in throughout the course are these: IDEO's appropriate use of expertise: You study the decision-making practices of this California-based design consultancy. One of the key lessons you learn is that IDEO uses experts and their knowledge in an appropriate manner-recognizing that sometimes expertise as defined by past successes is not always ideal in a quickly changing environment. Improving patient care in hospitals: Professor Roberto's independent study of hospital staff demonstrated how experienced nurses can positively influence patient care through intuition. By relying on an understanding of warning signs and using the Socratic method of asking questions, veteran nurses were able to prevent patients from experiencing life-threatening problems and reduced the rates for heart attacks and mortality. General Motors' financial woes: In 1972, General Motors was the nation's most profitable company, but in late 2008 the carmaker's profitability sank drastically. According to Professor Roberto, the management team's assumptions during the 1970s-including the persistence of energy sources and the internal promotion of managers-were proved false in the near and long term and only perpetuated outdated ways of thinking in the company. Compelling historical and contemporary examples provide a captivating window through which to see the process of decision making at work. In taking key principles that great scholars and leaders have studied from history, business, and the modern world, Professor Roberto helps you understand exactly how the successful and unsuccessful decisions involved in these and other events are relevant to your own life. Learn to Make Smarter Decisions Whether you're the head of a Fortune 500 company, a government agency, or an everyday household, you constantly make decisions important to you and those immediately around you. The Art of Critical Decision Making offers you a toolbox of practical knowledge and skills that you can apply to various decisions-whether large or small-in your everyday life and work. Professor Roberto's lively lectures are packed with useful anecdotes, tools, and advice designed to improve your own ability to make informed decisions. Among the many insights you gain from these lectures are that a large part of making a good decision is not just solving a problem but accurately defining it; framing a decision in terms of what may be lost usually causes us to take greater risks than if a problem is framed in terms of potential gains; and hidden problems, not visible ones, are the true enemies of effective critical decision making. Become a Better Critical Thinker While a thorough exploration of decision making can be a complex endeavor, it takes a professor as knowledgeable and comprehensible as Professor Roberto to expose just how easy to grasp this science is. Warm, engaging, and vibrant, Professor Roberto possesses a passion for his field that is undeniably contagious. You quickly discover why this former professor at Harvard Business School and former visiting associate professor at New York University's Stern School of Business has won numerous coveted teaching awards. These include Bryant University's Outstanding M.B.A. Teaching Award and, on two occasions, Harvard University's Allyn A. Young Prize for Teaching Economics. Professor Roberto has also consulted at and taught in the leadership development programs of a number of America's most prestigious firms, including Apple, Morgan Stanley, Coca-Cola, and Walmart. This breadth of real-world experience shines through in each one of these 24 captivating lectures, as concepts and theories that might seem complex and confusing are instead made practical and accessible to everyone. As you explore the intriguing process of making a good decision, you strengthen your grip on individual theories of decision making and the situations-both well known and relatively obscure-that illustrate them. Most important, by the end of The Art of Critical Decision Making, you'll become a better critical thinker. You'll possess a stronger ability to learn from your mistakes, be able to approach and weigh individual choices more effectively, and make smarter decisions. Lectures: 1.

  17. The End of the World: Contemporary Philosophy and Art edited by Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback, Susanna Lindberg English | March 29, 2017 | ISBN: 178660261X | PDF | 316 pages | 3.7 MB The 'end of the world' opens up philosophical questions concerning the very notion of the world, which is a fundamental element of all existential, phenomenological and hermeneutical philosophy. Is the 'end of the world' for us 'somebody's' death (the end of 'being-in-the-world') or the extinction of many or of all (the end of the world itself)? Is the erosion of the 'world' a phenomenon that does not in fact affect the notion of the world as a fundamental feature of all existential-ontological inquiry? This volume examines the present state of these concerns in philosophy, film and literature. It presents a philosophical hermeneutics of the present state of the world and explores the principal questions of the philosophical accounts of the end of the world, such as finality and finitude. It also shows how literature and cinema have ventured to express the end of the world while asking if a consequent expression of the end of the world is also an end of its expression.

While the examples used in this course are rooted in the world of academia, the concepts and principles they illustrate- lecturing, presenting, leading discussion groups, using technologies, and using creativity and innovation -can be put to use in nearly every situation in which you're required to teach and lead. Learn How to Teach from the Best of the Best The Art of Teaching is delivered by award-winning Professor Patrick N. Allitt of Emory University, one of The Great Courses' most popular professors. A distinguished teacher with more than 30 years of classroom experience and 5 years as Director of Emory College's Center for Teaching and Curriculum (designed to study and improve the art and craft of university teaching), he is the perfect instructor with whom to explore ways to become a great-or even greater-teacher. What's more: He enhances his lectures with candid and illuminating interviews with an all-star group of veteran Great Courses professors, some of the brightest teachers in higher education. Not only do you hear what they have to say about their roles as teachers, you actually witness them applying their tools and techniques in lecture halls, seminar classes, and even one-on-one student coaching. These teachers are John Hale, Director of Liberal Studies at the University of Louisville Jeanette Norden, Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Stephen Nowicki, Dean and Provost of Undergraduate Education and Professor of Biology at Duke University Scott E. Page, Collegiate Professor of Political Science, Complex Systems, and Economics at the University of Michigan Steve Pollock, Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder Michael Roberto, Trustee Professor of Management at Bryant University With these professors' wealth of teaching awards and accolades, their combined decades of experience teaching in classrooms of all sizes, and-most important-their deep and abiding passion for the importance of their profession, you'll learn how to teach from the best of the best. Explore the Toolkit for Effective Teaching At the heart of this new and unique course are the lessons you learn on how to enhance and improve your own teaching. In each lecture of The Art of Teaching, you'll discover a veritable toolkit of tips, techniques, exercises, advice, and wisdom rarely assembled in a single, affordable package. Here's just a brief sample of what you'll learn in these 24 lectures: How to handle the first day: The first day of your class is critical, because it gives your students an idea of what their learning experience will be like. Make sure that, during your first class, you explain your subject and establish your credentials for teaching it, demonstrate why the subject matters, set your expectations, learn your students' names, and immediately engage your students. How to give a dynamic lecture: Excellent lectures are both informative and interesting. Some tips to make your lectures more dynamic and memorable: Start your lecture with something stimulating or controversial; vary your vocal volume, tone, and expression to maintain attention; occasionally ask rhetorical questions; and avoid overfilling your lecture with content. How to effectively use technologies: When dealing with aids like PowerPoint, remember that the more teaching technology you use, the more time you're likely to devote to it instead of to your students. Keep your PowerPoint presentations bold and simple, and don't forget the usefulness of "traditional" technologies like blackboards. When using a teaching aid, always ask yourself: What does this method of teaching add? How will it help my students to learn? How to create and administer exams: Exams should fully test your students' knowledge and thinking ability. Before writing an exam, ask yourself what you want the students to take from your course. Decide whether to administer a multiple-choice test, a take-home exam, or an oral exam; each has its benefits and drawbacks. Similarly, decide beforehand whether you're going to grade on a curve or according to an absolute standard, and what your policy will be for handling potential grade disputes. How to survive the challenges of teaching: Teaching can be stressful at times, but there are many ways for you to remain focused. First, never take conflict with students personally; remember that your relationship with them is professional, and any disagreements should be handled professionally. It's also important to periodically reflect on your life as a teacher to ensure that you still view it as a vocation and not just a job to suffer through. A Course Unlike Any We've Crafted Before The Art of Teaching is a course unlike any we've crafted before-specifically because of how thoroughly it immerses you in the experience of being a teacher. Professor Allitt's course takes you across the country and brings you inside the classrooms of some of the greatest universities in America, where you actually watch great teachers doing what they do best. It's this dynamic approach that makes the course a unique learning experience-one that gives you the knowledge on how to be an effective teacher, then demonstrates it for you. In addition, you get a chance to hear views about teaching from the students themselves. Professor Allitt's interviews with students offer a fresh and often undocumented perspective on the art and craft of teaching. What do students think are the qualities of a great teacher? How would they describe the perfect classroom experience? With its diverse perspectives, its immersive nature, and its unparalleled look at the lives and minds of a variety of instructors, The Art of Teaching will reshape the way you think about and approach this important profession. By the conclusion of the final lecture, you'll have an amazing reservoir of skills to draw on in your own teaching. Most important, you'll have found a source of guidance and inspiration that will last your entire career. Lectures: 00. Professor Bio.avi 01. Successful Teaching.avi 02.
