The Internet: IP Addresses & DNS | Video

December 5, 2019

The co-founder of the Internet (!) Vint Cerf and software engineer Paola Mejia take us through the ins and outs of how networks talk to each other and what makes the Internet tick.

This is Part XII (7 minutes) of the series produced by Code.com explaining computers in terms most of us can understand. This is our last posting of this series.

If you like this series and want to go through it at your own rate, or wish to recommend the series to others, the 33 (so far) videos listed HERE include the twelve which I scheduled. Having some familiarity with the topics, I watched these twelve in about an hour. It’s time well spent.

The twelve videos we’ve seen, in order, are: How Computers Work-Bill Gates Introduction; What Makes a Computer a Computer; Circuits and Logic; Binary & Data; Hardware & Software; How Search Works; HTTP & HTML; Encryption & Public Keys; Cybersecurity & Crime; Internet, Wires, Cables & WiFi; What is the Internet; Internet, INS Addresses & DNS.

The additional five videos available HERE are: Packets, Routing & Reliability; Pixels; Data Compression; Data & Medicine. Six videos on coding have been added: IF/ELSE Statements; Pair Programming; Repeat Loops; Functions; Repeat Until; Persistence & Building a Foundation. Finally there are ten very short videos designed to inspire you to learn more about computers, the internet and coding. Have fun and learn something at the same time.
