    Stanford free online networking course


    Read about this interesting course this morning:

    Stanford Online | An Introduction to Computer Networks | Home

    About the Course

    This is an introductory course on computer networking, specifically the Internet. It focuses on explaining how the Internet works, ranging from how bits are modulated on wires and in wireless to application-level protocols like BitTorrent and HTTP. It also explains the principles of how to design networks and network protocols. Students gain experience reading and understanding RFCs (Internet protocol specifications) as statements of what a system should do. The course grounds many of the concepts in current practice and recent developments, such as net neutrality and DNS security.

    It is being conducted by a couple of Stanford profs. Apparently, there are tens of thousands of people already signed up for it. The class runs about 6 weeks, and has already quite a few videos (and embedded quizzes) posted for the first week, so if you're interested and have the time, check it out.

    coursera.org is a great website for anyone wanting to do some online courses.
    They supply certificates and you get given assignments which are then peer reviewed (actually a very accurate way for marking exams).

    Very nice, thank you. I just signed up for the Python class that is starting in a couple days. I started programming with Python a couple weeks ago to see what it was about, and I must say it's an easy language to jump into.
