Security 2020: Protecting Yourself and Your Data in a Changing Threat Landscape

Security 2020: Protecting Yourself and Your Data in a Changing Threat Landscape

Cyber attacks have skyrocketed during the global pandemic, with new scams targeting working from home, online finances and COVID-19 headlines (link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/08/24/cybersecurity-202-cor...). Learn how to protect yourself and your data in this changing environment using new tools and best practices.

3D Modeling 301: Fusion360 For CAD

This class will assume basic knowledge of modeling terms and basic computing. This class will be dedicated to adapting general CAD (Computer Aided Design) knowledge to Fusion 360. We will be spending a equally small amount of time going over intermediate modeling techniques. We will be going over importing objects into Fusion 360 as part of the adaptation portion.

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.

Linux & The Bash Shell

Though we may not be consciously aware, Linux is powering the world around us. From supercomputers, to smartphones, to automobiles; Linux is more often found "under the hood". It's open source nature has lead to hundreds of distributions and wide adaptation throughout the industry. This course aims to explore how to work in the Linux environment. In order to do that we will learn how to use the Bash Shell. Bash is a command line and shell for Unix operating systems.

3D Modeling 401: Rhino

Rhino is a 3D modeling software that, while may look daunting, is actually a super intuitive tool for design. It's useful for making drawings, renderings, animations, files for 3D printing, and much more. This class will go over the interface and some basic commands to introduce the functionality of Rhino. After the introduction, we will learn how to model a fidget spinner ready to 3D print! Link to 30 day free trial for Rhino: https://www.rhino3d.com/download

Understanding APIs

API is one of those terms we hear thrown around in the tech world a lot, but what are they? APIs are how our applications talk and interact with one another. In this workshop we will learn the basics of using a REST API over the web.

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.

3D Modeling 210: OnShape (2/2)

CAD 210 picks up where CAD 201 left off, we strongly recommend attending that class first. In CAD 201 students learned how to sketch an object and create simple 3D parts from those drawings. Those parts are stand-alone objects. In CAD 210, we'll extend those concepts. Students will learn how to make "machines" and understand the concepts of multi-body parts and assemblies.

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.

Illustrator For Laser Cutting

You've visited the lab and you've been dying to use those awesome laser cutters. There is one problem though... you don't really know how, or maybe, you just don't know how to use Illustrator. Whether you've never touched the software or the laser cutters (or you just want to come and make something with us) this class is a good starting point. In this class you will learn the basic use of Illustrator in regards to laser cutting while making a fun and easy project you will be able to take home with you.

Working Securely from Home... with Children- Family Feud Edition

As schools have moved to virtual learning at home, more parents and children are sharing the same home computing resources and face increasing security risks. Parents from Duke's IT Security Office offer their suggestions for protecting kids online, with tips on passwords, Zoom security and parental control options. Participants are welcome to attend with their children as the presenters will include their children in the discussion as well.

Create A Website: Styling (CSS Basics)

So you have created an HTML file, and it holds all your content, but it's lacking inspiration. It is time to add color to your world! In this second class in our Create a Website series, we are introducing a new language: CSS. CSS is the styling language for the web and it can make "most" of our web styling related dreams come true! With that said, CSS is a vast language with loads of possibilities and just like with everything, we must start small to one day go big. This class is geared towards CSS beginners, who have done some HTML work in the past.
