Kevin's going to talk with us about analysis. Our sponsor is Cambridge Web Design. Kevin Neelands has been programming for 30 or 35 years or so in a wide variety of circumstances, from educational programs for K-12 to sophisticated mathematical analysis using everything from AppleSoft BASIC to Java, C# and ARM assembly language.  Some of his work can be found in  iTunes and on Amazon.  It's all free, so download some and give a raving review.There is still a problem with a lack of analysis in computer software, with coders racing to 'get something shippable' quickly instead of giving a problem a through examination and exploring different solutions before deciding on a path to take. Kevin will attempt to examine this problem and offer a few solutions by drawing comparisons between coding analysis and some aspects of learning theory, but he may just ramble aimlessly for 45…Continue

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease.
