The last lecture by Randy Pausch( Recording )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and German and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." While they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What would we want as our legacy? When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--Wasn't about dying. It was about overcoming obstacles, enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment. It was about living"--Container

The last lecture by Randy Pausch( Book )

"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."--Randy Pausch A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance' If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy' When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have ... and you may find one day that you have less than you think"). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living. In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come

Lowering the barriers to programming : a survey of programming environments and languages for novice programmers by Caitlin Kelleher( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Since the early 1960's, researchers have built a number of programming languages and environments with the intention of making programming accessible to a larger number of people. This paper presents a taxonomy of languages and environments designed to make programming more accessible to novice programmers of all ages. The systems are organized by their primary goal, either to teach programming or to use programming to empower their users, and then by the authors' approach to making learning to program easier for novice programmers. The paper explains all categories in the taxonomy, provides a brief description of the systems in each category, and suggests some avenues for future work in novice programming environments and languages."
A tutorial for SUIT : the simple user interface toolkit by Randy Pausch( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "SUIT, The Simple User Interface Toolkit, is a subroutine library which helps C programmers create graphical user interfaces. A C programmer can invest approximately two hours with this tutorial and be able to create SUIT programs which run on UNIX/X-Windows, IBM-PC/DOS, and Macintosh platforms. SUIT is like having a window manager for interface components - as SUIT-based programs execute, users may change the location, appearance, and functionality of screen objects such as buttons, sliders, menus, etc. All changes are saved with the program so later invocations will reflect the interface changes."
Tailor : creating custom user interfaces based on gesture by Randy Pausch( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Physical controls for most devices are either 'one size fits all' or require custom hardware for each user. Cost often prohibits custom design, and each user must adapt to the standard device interface, typically with a loss of precision and efficiency. When user abilities vary widely, such as in the disabled community, devices often become unusable. Our goal is to create a system that will track user gestures and interpret them as control signals for devices. Existing gesture recognition research converts continuous body motion into discrete symbols. Our approach is to map continuous motions into a set of analog device control signals

Le dernier discours by Randy Pausch( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give a last lecture on what matters most, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment
Specifying Interaction Surfaces Using Interaction Maps by Jeffrey S Pierce( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: "Defining how 3D models respond to user actions is a crucial step in building an interactive 3D world. Unfortunately, existing tools make it very difficult for interaction designers to assign responses to any part of a 3D model that is not a pre-defined group of polygons. This is particularly problematic for applications that use image-based models or models where most of the detail is in the model's texture map. We present a flexible and easy-to-use technique that overcomes this problem by allowing a designer to specify interaction surfaces, parts of the model he wants to respond to events, by painting them onto the model. We capture the painted areas by projecting them onto a 2D interaction map. An interaction map is similar to a traditional texture, but it specifies interaction surfaces instead of affecting a model's appearance. We allow designers to name interaction surfaces and then assign them responses to events both statically and at run-time. In addition, designers can modify the size and shape of interaction surfaces at run-time and can pass parameters to these surfaces' responses by encoding them in the model's interaction map."
