C6975: Language Taste Test in Spark! 2013 (Mar. 16, 2013)
Learning a new programming language can bend your mind like Keanu Reaves in the Matrix. In this class you'll get introduced to as many different paradigms as I can fit in. In APCompSci they only teach you imperative and object-oriented stuff. Learn the cool stuff. Among other paradigms I'll let you sample: imperative, object-oriented, prototype-based, logic, functional, lispy-languages, and (the) proof based language(s). Among the more popular we'll probably taste: C, Ruby, Javascript, Haskell, Prolog, Closure. Among the less common: Io, J, Coq. And maybe some esoteric ones too: Brain****.

C6976: Learn the Command Line (Unix) in Spark! 2013 (Mar. 16, 2013)
Mac and Linux machines are both based on the Unix platform. Learn how to navigate your computer using the command line. Learn the basic unix commands. We'll be coving as many commands as I can fit, including, but not limited to: cd, ls, pwd, touch, grep, awk, sort, uniq, wc, du, df, echo, cat, man, rm, mv, mkdir, ssh, find, cp, rmdir, less, cut, tail, more, chmod, which, whereis, tar, gzip, bzip, etc. If you want, bring a unix based laptop (linux, or mac os) and you can follow along as I introduce you to all the commands.

A5511: Aso, Shutter Speed, Aperture and All That: An Introduction to Photography in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Ever wanted to impress that special someone with a good profile picture but never understood how to make your camera do what you want it to do? Even if you didn't, but simply had an interest in knowing what those buttons, ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, controlled I'll teach you the basics of both the artistic and scientific sides of photography. We'll also learn simple image editing techniques and, time permitting, play with some/learn how to use expensive DSLRs and lenses.
