So, I decided to offer a freshman seminar!
The title of the seminar is "What is Computing?" and here is how I describe it:
"Computer technology has produced many impressive gadgets that surround us every day. However, its foundations are still a mystery to many. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss what computing is, with the hope of getting some insights about its essence and its future potential."The seminar is not exclusively targeting students who plan to get a computer science degree. It is open to everyone who is interested in computing.
I will prepare a post for each topic I plan to discuss in class. I hope to make my posts as readable and as entertaining as I can. No formulas, no graphs, just plain English.
I hope it will be a fun seminar.
