Join Doug Winnie for an in-depth discussion in this video Contact, part of Computer Science Principles: Digital Information.
- [Voiceover] There are multiple ways to contact me or keep up with my courses or other materials that I cover. In addition to creating courses here, I also do a lot of writing and publishing in other places as well. So, here's how to find me. Years ago, I created a handle for myself called sfdesigner and it's kind of just stuck, even though I've added programming and coding to my design shops. So, you'll see that pop up a lot if you try to find me online. The first place you can go to is my webpage, dougwinnie.com. On this site, I have a lot of information on the projects I'm working on and general updates and additional information on the courses, apps, and materials I create.
On LinkedIn, you can follow me and read my posts and updates at linkedin.com/in/sfdesigner. On LinkedIn, I do a lot of articles and posts on working, teaching, and living in a technology industry. Plus other anecdotes from my professional life that I hope can be valuable to you. Next, you can find me on Twitter under @sfdesigner. On Twitter, I share a lot about my professional and personal life. But I generally use hashtags if there are areas that you are specifically looking for. I love Instagram and I post all kinds of photos and also I have a number of Instagram series that might be valuable to you.
You can find me on Instagram under @sfdesignerdw. Note the extra dw at the end. Finally, there's Facebook. While I have a personal Facebook account, I'd recommend that you go to my Facebook fan page, which is located at facebook.com/sfdesignerdw. I'd love to hear from you, so check out the website and reach out whichever means works best for you. But just a heads-up, while I love hearing from everyone, just remember that I can't answer any technical support questions about the course. For those, be sure to follow the appropriate links on the site.
Talk to you soon.
This course is the first in our Computer Science Principles series, designed around the AP Computer Science Principles (CSP) curriculum. It is a great foundation for anyone, at any age, to prepare for careers in technology and computer science. Lessons in this segment cover the building blocks of computing: binary logic, number systems, text and image encoding, compression, and simple communication protocols. Understanding these basics will help you understand the interplay between hardware, software, data, networks, and the people that use them.
- Binary and bits
- Digital communication
- Number systems
- Encoding text
- Compressing text and images
