Learning Bash Scripting

Bash, or the Bourne Again Shell, is a widely popular command-line interpreter for administration and programming tasks. But Bash is different than most scripting languages. That’s why Scott Simpson spends some time in this course running you through the syntax—introducing variables, numbers, and control structures—so you can start writing scripts right away. He shows you how to wrap up multiline operations in one file, implement flow control, and interact with users to get input. Plus, he offers challenges along the way that allow you to put what you’ve learned to the test.

Fusion 360: Simulation

Designing your parts is just the first step. In order to ensure they will perform as designed, you need to know how they will stand up to real-world conditions. Will they deform, break, or otherwise fail when they are used? Instructor Thom Tremblay shows you how to use Fusion 360 simulation tools to specify materials, loads, constraints, and then perform your analysis to learn what changes you need to make before manufacturing your part. Thom explains how to use the application’s various simulation tools, including Finite Element Analysis (FEA), thermal simulation, and tools to study cooling for electronics. He concludes with a recap of Generative Design, a cloud-based service that runs on Fusion 360 and uses simulation to offer design suggestions. Then he discusses how Autodesk CFD can be used in conjunction with Fusion 360 from computational fluid dynamics studies.

C#: Advanced Practices

In this course, instructor Mika Dumont introduces you to C# advanced practices. Mika begins by defining LINQ and showing you how LINQ makes it easy to query any data source. She walks you through how LINQ composes queries written in multiple statements, or even multiple methods, into a single query operation. Mika covers how LINQ works with Entity Framework to query SQL data sources. She describes how async features make it easy to write code that describes what your code does. She goes into how the Task class helps you organize asynchronous algorithms in logical ways. She steps you through how to recover and process asynchronous error conditions from faulted tasks. Mika concludes by explaining the similarities and differences between asynchronous operations and multithreaded, how you can apply similar techniques in both contexts, and how asynchronous operations may be single-threaded.
