Smartphones, tablettes, ces appareils ultra-portables sont désormais omniprésents dans notre vie quotidienne. Il y a des applications pour presque tout : retoucher ses photos, réserver une place de cinéma, réviser le code de la route, choisir une recette de cuisine, tourner et monter des clips vidéos, ou trouver les restaurants les plus proches.

Derrière ces applications il y a un savoir-faire spécifique à la programmation sur plateformes mobiles. En effet, contrairement aux ordinateurs classiques, les contraintes imposées par les caractéristiques ces terminaux font que certains « gestes simples » pour l'utilisateur, comme faire dérouler une liste de données, impliquent en réalité des mécanismes plus complexes.

Ce MOOC est le premier d'une série de deux MOOCs consacrés à la programmation sur iPhone et iPad. Il se concentre sur le développement d'applications « mono-vues » et présente en détail les principes d'une interaction réussie de vos applications avec ses utilisateurs. Nous avons également décidé de prendre en compte les dernières nouveautés introduites dans iOS. Ainsi, ce MOOC, s'il évoque Objective-C, le langage « historique » de développement sur cette plateforme qu'il faut connaître, passera beaucoup de temps sur le nouveau langage Swift (dans sa version 3, annoncée en Septembre 2016 avec iOS10). Un parallèle avec la problématique du développement de systèmes embarqués est également fait.

L'objectif, si vous suivez attentivement ce cours et réalisez les exercices proposés, est de vous rendre autonomes dans la réalisation d'applications pour l'écosystème iOS (le dernier exercice est d'ailleurs un jeu d'adresse). Vous serez aussi capables de travailler non seulement dans l'environnement de  développement d'Apple mais aussi dans des environnements similaires. Les exercices sont réalisés sous iOS10, publié en septembre 2016. Nous recommandons donc l'usage de Xcode 8 ou ultérieur (accès gratuit sur le site d'Apple).

Ce cours est principalement destiné à des personnes maîtrisant déjà la programmation objet. Il est dérivé d'une unité d'enseignement de 5eme année (master 2) dispensée à l'Université Pierre et Marie Curie, le premier établissement universitaire à avoir proposé en France, en 1967, un diplôme d'informatique. Il tient également compte des nombreux retours des MOOCs qui se sont déroulés en 2014 et en 2015.

Si ce sujet vous intéresse, n'hésitez pas à vous inscrire et à venir nous suivre. J'ai reçu plusieurs témoignages d'anciens participants en 2014 et 2015 qui se sont réorientés vers la programmation mobile après avoir participé à l'une des éditions précédentes.

Despite the large volume of data mining papers and tutorials available on the web, aspiring data scientists find it surprisingly difficult to locate an overview that blends clarity, technical depth and breadth with enough amusement to make big data analytics engaging. This course does just that.

Each module starts with an interesting real-world example that gives rise to the specific research question of interest.

Students are then presented with a general idea of how to tackle this problem along with some intuitive and straightforward approaches.

Finally, a number of representative algorithms are introduced along with concrete examples that show how they function in practice.

While theoretical analysis sometimes overcomplicates things for students, here it’s applied to help them better understand the key features of the techniques.

As a data pro, you know that some scenarios—particularly those involving real-time analytics, site personalization, IoT, and mobile apps—are better addressed with NoSQL storage and compute solutions than they are with relational databases. Microsoft Azure has several NoSQL (or “Not Only SQL”) non-relational data storage options to choose from. NoSQL databases are generally built to be distributed and partitioned across many servers. And they’re built to scale out for high availability and to be flexible enough to handle semi-structured and unstructured data. If you have a data model that is constantly evolving and you want to move fast, that’s what these databases are about.

In this practical course, complete with labs, assessments, and a final exam, join the experts to learn how NoSQL has evolved over time. Explore non-relational data storage options in Azure, and see how to use them in your applications. Find out how to create, store, manage, and access data in these different storage options. Get an in-depth look at Azure Table Storage, DocumentDB, MongoDB, and more. Learn about the “three Vs”—variety (schemas or scenarios that evolve quickly), volume (scale in terms of data storage), and velocity (throughput needs to support a large user base). Take this opportunity to get hands-on with NoSQL options in Azure.

As we see American women coming into positions of unprecedented economic and political power, we start to wonder: why now? This history course, the first of two Women Have Always Worked courses, explores women in America and introduces students to historians’ work to uncover the place of women and gender in America’s past.

This history course will trace an arc from the Colonial Period through the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which formally established women’s right to vote. You will learn how women negotiated for the home and workplace and how the tension between the two resulted in a persistent disadvantage for women in both arenas. You will also learn how race and class have shaped ideas about gender. This course tells the story of overall achievement and growth for women, but also discusses expanding democracy, social justice and new definitions of liberty and equality.

The Women Have Always Worked courses are the first full-length MOOCs on the history of women in America.
