Computer Science touches virtually every aspect of human endeavor. Its impact on society is seen in the proliferation of computers, information systems, game systems, web browsers, search engines, computerization  and automation of automobiles, and all the wonderful application programs that have been developed to make computers more productive and easier to use.

Computer Science Podcasts


Software Engineering Radio is a podcast targeted at the professional software developer. The goal is to be a lasting educational resource, not a newscast. Three to four times per month, we publish a new episode talking to experts from the software engineering world about the full range of topics that matter to professional developers.

undefinedIn Security Now, Leo Laporte and I spend somewhat shy of 2 hours each week discussing important issues of personal computer security. Sometimes we'll talk about long-standing problems, concerns, or solutions. Either way, every week we endeavor to produce something interesting and important for every personal computer user.
