10 places where anyone can learn to code

Teens, tweens and kids are often referred to as “digital natives.” Having grown up with the Internet, smartphones and tablets, they’re often extraordinarily adept at interacting with digital technology. But Mitch Resnick, who spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet in November, is skeptical of this descriptor. Sure, young people can text and chat and play games, he says, “but that doesn’t really make you fluent.”
Fluency, Resnick proposes in today’s talk, comes not through interacting with new technologies, but through creating them. The former is like reading, while the latter is like writing. He means this figuratively — that creating new technologies, like writing a book, requires creative expression — but also literally: to make new computer programs, you actually must write the code.
The point isn’t to create a generation of programmers, Resnick argues. Rather, it’s that coding is a gateway to broader learning. “When you learn to read, you can then read to learn. And it’s the same thing with coding: If you learn to code, you can code to learn,” he says. Learning to code means learning how to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively. And these skills are applicable to any profession — as well as to expressing yourself in your personal life, too.
In his talk, Resnick describes Scratch, the programming software that he and a research group at MIT Media Lab developed to allow people to easily create and share their own interactive games and animations. Below, find 10 more places you can learn to code, incorporating Resnick’s suggestions and our own.
1.At Codecademy, you can take lessons on writing simple commands in JavaScript, HTML and CSS, Python and Ruby. (See this New York Times piece from last March, on Codecademy and other code-teaching sites, for a sense of the landscape.)
2.One of many programs geared toward females who want to code, Girl Develop It is an international nonprofit that provides mentorship and instruction. “We are committed to making sure women of all ages, races, education levels, income, and upbringing can build confidence in their skill set to develop web and mobile applications,” their website reads. “By teaching women around the world from diverse backgrounds to learn software development, we can help women improve their careers and confidence in their everyday lives.”
3.Stanford University’s Udacity is one of many sites that make college courses—including Introduction to Computer Science—available online for free. (See our post on free online courses for more ideas.)
4.If college courses seem a little slow, consider Code Racer, a “multi-player live coding game.” Newbies can learn to build a website using HTML and CSS, while the more experienced can test their adeptness at coding.
5.The Computer Clubhouse, which Resnick co-founded, works to “help young people from low-income communities learn to express themselves creatively with new technologies,” as he describes. According to Clubhouse estimates, more than 25,000 kids work with mentors through the program every year.
6.Through CoderDojo’s volunteer-led sessions, young people can learn to code, go on tours of tech companies and hear guest speakers. (Know how to code? You can set up your own CoderDojo!)
7.Code School offers online courses in a wide range of programming languages, design and web tools.
8.Similarly, Treehouse (the parent site of Code Racer) provides online video courses and exercises to help you learn technology skills.
9.Girls Who Code, geared specifically toward 13- to 17-year-old girls, pairs instruction and mentorship to “educate, inspire and equip” students to pursue their engineering and tech dreams. “Today, just 3.6% of Fortune 500 companies are led by women, and less than 10% of venture capital-backed companies have female founders. Yet females use the internet 17% more than their male counterparts,” the website notes.
10.Through workshops for young girls of color, Black Girls Code aims to help address the “dearth of African-American women in science, technology, engineering and math professions,” founder Kimberly Bryant writes, and build “a new generation of coders, coders who will become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures.”

What Are Zip, RAR, 7z File Formats?

What is the difference between the Zip, RAR, 7z File Formats?
1. ZIP -- It's a best and easiest format to use if you want to combine multiple files into a single archive file and also want to decrease the size of it. This is the most commonly used file format on the Internet. The interesting thing about this format is that the new operating systems (XP, 7, 8, MAC, Linux) can easily open these files without even installing any kind of software.
2. RAR -- If you want to reduce the file size a lot more, than you should use RAR format. It's the best format to choose when it comes to file size reduction. But in order to compress your files / folders in RAR format, you have to use a software called WINRAR.
3. 7Z -- It's another file compression format, but just like RAR, you have to use a special software name 7-zip to compress your files / folders in this format.
You can use any of these file format according to your file compression need

BSNL Broadband Error Codes- Reasons and Solutions

BSNL Broadband Error Codes
If you are customer of BSNL broadband and using a modem connection, you must have experienced these or at least some of these errors at least once in your system and would have thought what is the reason and solution of these problems.
Although it is a very elaborate topic but I will here give solutions to frequent coming error codes. I will take the error codes not according to ascending/ descending order, but according to frequency of error occurrence.
    ERROR 678: "The remote computer did not respond"
       It is a common broadband error code and frequently occurs.
  •         Wrong connection at broadband CPE.
  •         LAN card of PC may be disabled.
  •         PC Ethernet (LAN card) port fault/ Driver corrupt.
  •         Line problem between your end and POP of Internet Service Provide
  •         (ISP).
  •         Modem fault/ Modem Configuration Fault.
  •         Voice and Data Splitter at your end may be faulty.
  •         Spy ware is running on the computer and is interfering with
  •         the connection.
  •         Server down or due to higher network element faults at ISP.
  •         Third-party firewall software is blocking the connection.
       Please follow instruction step-by-step to solve this error:
1.       Check whether ADSL/ DSL/ Link light of your modem is stable glowing or not. If it  is Stable, then take a ping test from your PC to modem.
Procedure for PING Test:
start-> run,
then type “ping –t” and press enter.
If reply is ok, then check the modem configuration. If reply is not ok (i.e. Destination host unreachable or request time out), then LAN card/ Ethernet Driver or modem is faulty. So, better you check your modem in another PC or laptop for modem verification.
2.       If ADSL/ DSL/ Link light of your modem is not stable means either blinking or off. First of all check your CPE (i.e. Modem, Splitters, Phone Jack etc.) Physical
connection, whether all are connected perfectly. If all is ok, then surpass the Splitter box and directly terminate the line cable to your modem, it should work if your splitter is faulty. Still your Link light is not stable then you should lodge a complain to BSNL office or through online complain Portal.
ERROR 769: “The specified destination is not reachable”
       Due to LAN port disabled.
      Enable the LAN port (or Local Area Connection).
Start->setting->control panel->network connection->right click on local area connection->enable.
ERROR 676: “The phone line is busy”
       Due to Modem Configuration problem.
       Reconfigure the modem with correct value of VPI/ VCI.
ERROR: 619- “The remote computer did not respond and port was closed”

1.       It occurs when another application / process requires the same port as being used by the broadband / internet modem. In particular, fax software is often associated with error 619.
2.       Due to corrupted Modem USB driver (If using).
3.       Due Registry Problem.
4.       You may have installed a router and is causing you some issues with connectivity.
1.       Most of the time, when you restart your system it automatically solved.
2.       Fix your System registry problem with registry cleaning software.
3.       Uninstall and reinstall your Broadband modem USB driver.
ERROR 691: “Access was denied because the user name and/or password was invalid on the domain”                             
1.       Incorrect User name or password, or Spelling error.
2.       Due to forget of changed password.
3.       Due to wrong port binding by ISP.
4.       Due to authentication problem in AAA server of ISP.
1.       Check spelling of User name & password.
2.       Verify Caps Lock Key.
3.       Ask to BSNL office for password reset.
ERROR 651: “Your modem (or other connecting device) has reported an error”
This error comes mainly on Windows 7 OS. This problem is due to problem in windows 7 files mainly with PPPoE driver file raspppoe.sys.
1.       Replace the raspppoe.sys in Windows/System32/Drivers directory. (High Risk!): The RAS PPPoE driver file “raspppoe.sys” found under c:\windows \system32\drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, we can workaround the problem simply by renaming the original raspppoe.sys file to something like “raspppoe_orig.sys” copying a working file from a Windows Vista system. If you do not have access to a Windows Vista system. You  may  download raspppoe.sys file (unzip) from        http://www.windowsreference.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/raspppoe.ziphttp://www.windowsreference.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/raspppoe.zip
2.       Windows System Restore in back date may solve the problems.
3.       Uninstall Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, the problem seems to be fixed.
4.       Disable IPv6 for your connection source.
5.       Reinstall LAN/NIC drivers.
6.       Last but most easy solution is to change the modem configuration from Bridge to
 PPPoE .                                        
Error 815: “Error connecting broadband connection WAN Miniport (PPPOE)”

This error comes especially on Windows Vista System and as per my practical experience it is due to LAN driver problem or IP related issues. One more reason may be registry Problem.
1.       Login with your admin account and verify IP add.
2.       Uninstall and reinstall your LAN drive.
3.       Fix your System registry problem with registry cleaning software.
Error - 630-633: “Port Is Invalid or Busy / The Modem Is Not Installed or Configured for... “ 
These types of error come basically due to Computer LAN Card problem. So, better you check your card. Some times when you restart your system it automatically solved.
Error 718: “Timed out waiting for a valid response from the remote PPP Peer”

        A problem with the server at the BSNL (This problem occurs if loading is high on the system     
        and number of customers exceeds the traffic handling capacity of system).
        The wrong username and or password were entered.
        The modem may need initialization string to stabilize its operation.

1.       Reboot the modem.
2.       Make sure the correct username and or password have been entered.
3.       Make a complaint to BSNL regarding this.

You can alter these settings again any time incase you feels your start menu  is too fast or slow.
