ANSYS Webinars This Week – Feb 17

ansys webinars what you need to knowBefore I get to the ANSYS Webinars for the week, today in the United States we celebrate the birthday of George Washington, the first President of the United States. But, in his honor, I cannot tell a lie. Did you know that technically Mr. Washington was not the first President? Nope. That honor really goes to John Hanson. A fascinating story you might want to check out after you register for one of our free webinars this week.

What Do ANSYS Webinars and Grace Hopper Have in Common?

Today’s a very special day, so before I proceed with the ANSYS webinars for the week, I’d like to tell you a little about why. One hundred and seven years ago, a woman was born who would one day help to change the world. In fact, Google’s Doodle today is celebrating her birthday. Do you know who she is?

Grace Murray Hopper (Dec 9, 1906 – Jan 1, 1992) was an American computer scientist, a pioneer in the field, and one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer. She developed the first compiler for a computer programming language and conceptualized the idea of machine-independent programming languages, which led to the development of COBOL. She is credited with popularizing the term “debugging” for fixing computer glitches (inspired by an actual moth removed from the computer.

hour of codeYou might have noticed the One Hour of Code text in the image above. Today also kicks off Computer Science Education Week in the U.S., which promotes the idea that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. I agree!

I’m going to make an assumption that most, if not all, of our readers do a little coding from time to time. This week would be the perfect time to share that skill with your children, your nieces, your nephews, or the kid down the block. I would like to encourage you to introduce them to the Hour of Code project and have some fun!

ANSYS Webinars This Week – Nov 25th

ANSYS Webinar Learning EventsThis week is a short work week in the U.S. — due to the Thanksgiving holiday — so our list of ANSYS Webinars is a tad short.

For those of you in the U.S., have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am personally thankful that you, our readers, take time out of you day to read our blog.
