New Research from Best Computer Science Degrees Compares Pricey vs. Cheap Degrees

The launch of a new web article by Best Computer Science Degrees compares 15 affordable computer science degrees versus 15 cost-no-object ones for the ultimate shoot-out

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new web article by Best Computer Science Degrees explodes the myth that high-cost universities offer the best returns on investment. "Ultimate Computer Science Degree Shootout: Top 15 Affordable vs. Top 15 Cost-no-object Programs" makes a good case for low-cost, high-quality degree programs. The piece was published as an adjunct to Best Computer Science Degrees' website, which is a free research portal for college-bound users.

The new article compares data from two lists; the first is made up of 15 high-quality, affordable schools and the other contains the 15 best computer science degree programs regardless of cost. Five data points were used for the rankings: Acceptance Rate, Graduation Rate, Recognition, Tuition Cost, and Return on Investment. The two 15-school lists were then sorted in order of expected 30-year ROI. Among the findings in the article, "...a degree from a reputable school at half the cost of a top school does not necessarily mean half the earning potential."

"Ultimate Computer Science Degree Shootout: Top 15 Affordable vs. Top 15 Cost-no-object Programs" is available now on Best Computer Science Degrees' website at this URL: http://www.bestcomputersciencedegrees.com/top/affordable-vs-cost-no-object-programs/

P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
