This is a fragment of an interview with Scientist and former comp1927 student Glen Kelley in which he talks about how they do things in the "real" sciences like biology and physics, and reflects on computing as a science. Recorded to help students think about their approach to task 1 in COMP1927 and shown in class in week 3 session 2 2009.
These are the 2009 lectures of COMP1927 Algorithms and Data Structures, aka Computing2 the second computing course taken by first year computing students at UNSW. This course follows immediately on from COMP1917 (also available on YouTube).
These lectures were recorded August-November 2009 and are gradually being uploaded to youtube.
A selection of the course material is available at www.openlearning.net All of the course material will eventually be available (once all the videos are posted)
This course is followed by COMP2911 which looks at Design in computing, including OO design and algorithm design. In the first half of 2010 Richard's lectures for this course were also be recorded and will be posted next.
Founded in 1849, the University of New South Wales (UNSW) is one of the world's leading research universities and part of the Universitas 21, a coalition of international research-focused universities. As one of Australia's leading schools, its campuses teach over 46,000 students in 600 academic programs. In 2009, the Financial Times ranked UNSW's The Australian School of Business the top MBA program in Australia and 32nd in the world. During the school's relatively short history, it has also managed to produce some of the leading political figures in Australia including a foreign minister in Bob Carr and former Attorney General of Australia, Robert McClelland.
