Teach Your Students How to Use Computing to Explore Powerful and Creative Ideas In the twenty-first century, computers have become indispensable in music making, distribution, performance, and consumption. Making Music with Computers: Creative Programming in Python introduces important concepts and skills necessary to generate music with computers. It interweaves computing pedagogy with musical concepts and creative activities, showing students how to integrate the creativity and design of the arts with the mathematical rigor and formality of computer science. The book provides an introduction to creative software development in the Python programming language. It uses innovative music-creation activities to illustrate introductory computer programming concepts, including data types, algorithms, operators, iteration, lists, functions, and classes. The authors also cover GUIs, event-driven programming, big data, sonification, MIDI programming, client–server programming, recursion, fractals, and complex system dynamics. Requiring minimal musical or programming experience, the text is designed for courses in introductory computer science and computing in the arts. It helps students learn computer programming in a creative context and understand how to build computer music applications. Also suitable for self-study, the book shows musicians and digital music enthusiasts how to write music software and create algorithmic music compositions. Web Resource A supplementary website (http://jythonMusic.org) provides a music library and other software resources used in the text. The music library is an extension of the jMusic library and incorporates other cross-platform programming tools. The website also offers example course and associated media resources.

The C Food System has been created to facilitate the production of edible meals by Geeks and Nerds, especially Programmers. Careful compilation of the functions contained in this manual will result in dinners that you will be proud to serve to family, guests, maybe even someone you're trying to attract (or keep in your life!) There are benefits in the C Food System for every segment of Society: Geeks: There are too many things in the kitchen that you just don't understand. Well, no promise that we can fix ALL of that, but this is a start. You'll be turning out edible food in no time! Nerds: You can figure out anything. This volume simply puts it in a syntax that you can relate to. The Amish: OK, not the Amish. Nor any other segment of society that chooses to reject technology. I'm cool with that. We should have lunch. We could talk about gardening. Or the weather. Mothers: Are you worried that your wonderful son who just got his first job as a software engineer will starve without access to his alma mater's food service? Is he too far away for you to cook for him? Fear not! The C Food Food Enhancement System puts recipes in a language he understands (even if you don't). He'll eat well and maybe even get a date! Fathers: Do you REALLY care? Just get the money pit out of your house... Everyone else: C'mon, there are a lot of elements at play here. We've got humor, pathos (OK, not a lot of pathos), melancholy (again, not a lot) and delight (hopefully a bunch!) You might have to read some of these recipes through a few times (and/or learn a little programming), but you'll get it eventually! I mean, this stuff is EASY! What's wrong with you? Why can't everyone do this? Recipes as C++ functions, written in a form that any self-respecting geek or nerd will be sure to understand. This book contains a couple of silly recipes (including the Time Warp Cocktail) and lots of advice in not so down-to-earth language. Hey, buy a book, feed a Nerd!

THE GEEKS HAVE INHERITED THE EARTH. Computer nerds are our titans of industry; comic-book superheroes are our Hollywood idols; the Internet is our night on the town. Clearly, geeks know something about life in the 21st century that other folks don’t—something we all can learn from. Geek Wisdom takes as gospel some 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes from movies (“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads”), television (“Now we know—and knowing is half the battle”), literature (“All that is gold does not glitter”), games, science, the Internet, and more. Now these beloved pearls of modern-day culture have been painstakingly interpreted by a diverse team of hardcore nerds with their imaginations turned up to 11. Yes, this collection of mini-essays is by, for, and about geeks—but it’s just so surprisingly profound, the rest of us would have to be dorks not to read it. So say we all. From the Hardcover edition.

Are you the innovative type, the cook who marches to a different drummer -- used to expressing your creativity instead of just following recipes? Are you interested in the science behind what happens to food while it's cooking? Do you want to learn what makes a recipe work so you can improvise and create your own unique dish? More than just a cookbook, Cooking for Geeks applies your curiosity to discovery, inspiration, and invention in the kitchen. Why is medium-rare steak so popular? Why do we bake some things at 350° F/175° C and others at 375° F/190° C? And how quickly does a pizza cook if we overclock an oven to 1,000° F/540° C? Author and cooking geek Jeff Potter provides the answers and offers a unique take on recipes -- from the sweet (a "mean" chocolate chip cookie) to the savory (duck confit sugo). This book is an excellent and intriguing resource for anyone who wants to experiment with cooking, even if you don't consider yourself a geek. Initialize your kitchen and calibrate your tools Learn about the important reactions in cooking, such as protein denaturation, Maillard reactions, and caramelization, and how they impact the foods we cook Play with your food using hydrocolloids and sous vide cooking Gain firsthand insights from interviews with researchers, food scientists, knife experts, chefs, writers, and more, including author Harold McGee, TV personality Adam Savage, chemist Hervé This, and xkcd "My own session with the book made me feel a lot more confident in my cooking." --Monica Racic,The New Yorker "I LOVE this book. It's inspiring, invigorating, and damned fun to spend time inside the mind of 'big picture' cooking. I'm Hungry!" --Adam Savage, co-host of Discovery Channel's MythBusters "In his enchanting, funny, and informative book, Cooking for Geeks (O'Reilly), Jeff Potter tells us why things work in the kitchen and why they don't." -- Barbara Hanson, NewYork Daily News
