The software engineering section has some valuable information that will at least give you a conceptual framework that lessons can be mapped to in your head as you learn them.
Here’s something different. Keep your coding skills sharp by playing interactive games.
This article by author Matt Weisfeld brings up an important subject that will no doubt become more relevant as the public becomes more familiar with “The Internet of Things“. Matt points out that the conceptualization inherent with Object Oriented Programming is what makes IoT possible.
“It can safely be said that the object has been the driving force in the programming industry for a very long time and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. The evidence to support this statement is pretty compelling! Today, just about every major software development methodology is based on objects. As a result, virtually all programming languages, scripting languages and application designs are object-oriented or object-based.”
