My Five (5) Computer Science Genre’s

Lots happening! Authors picture of tech-hub Seattle during a recent concert night

Did you ever see the opening scene in The Player, by Robert Altman 1992? It’s a famous long take much like Hitchcock's “Rope” and others.

A person with paper, pencil, eraser, and subject to strict discipline, is a universal machine. — Alan Turing

Computing is integral to science, not just as a tool for analyzing data but also as a method of thought and discovery. — Peter Denning

Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes — Edsger W. Dijkstra

Dependence on wizardry to mitigate the fundamental limitations of software is called hacking. — Grady Booch

Enter the FIVE (5) Genre

“One of the things that makes computing so interesting is the utter generality of binary representations. We choose to make the bits mean anything we wish.” — Vint Ceft (2014) forward to Peter Dennings book.

Kauai’s Waterman Steve Cole and Authors innovation for self mapping reefs
Potential inventions where IoT devices will shine
Authors course storyline showing ups and downs once reality is shown (the ice berg). The concept was adapted from the Sparkline approach.

EPILOG: My RTC College Analysis on the Denning Computer Science book:

which is not simply its discovery, classification, storage or communication. Algorithms have the ability to read information into their structure and then modify the structure (creating new information).

And key:

but they are “Generative
