If you have been following my website, which you probably haven't since I don't update often enough to keep it interesting, but anyway; I started to go back to school to get my Bachelors of Science degree in 2011. When I started I knew that the B.S. should only be the beginning, after all, I had been in the technology industry and career field for 18 years. So my intent was to complete the B.S. and go directly into an advanced degree. When I completed the first degree 17 months later in 2013, I wasn't sure which direction to go.
Today was day 4 of the GCIH course being taught by Mark Baggett. Things are going great and I'm learning stuff, I today we discussed SQL injection and cross site scripting.
Regarding prevention, the training it states to perform input checking and disallow/block the user from entering symbols or specials characters such the apostrophe (') or the semi-colon (;) or the percent (%), etc.
This is a presentation I did for my "Language and Communication: Presentation". For my research project I wanted to determine, based on pollution from the generation of electricity if an electric vehicle was any more environmentally friendly than a comparable gasoline engine.
With current power generation techniques in the US, it's not.
Today my courses opened at Western Governor's University. The first course is designed to take up to 15 days and must be completed within 20 days. So far, I have completed all activities for the first class and can't begin my second class until I speak with my student mentor.
I can review the course requirements, what will be "learned" in a particular class, but I can't actually begin the material until it has been opened.
I was actually still awake at 1AM this morning because I wanted to get started, but alas, it was not available.
Starting this coming Saturday, October 1st I begin taking classes again at Western Governor's University.
This will be my second attempt at starting a degree at an online university. The first was through Capella. And as I'm writing this blog entry, there is an advert for Capella right here.
The reason I was not successful with Capella was that the course I took was dependent on time spent "in class". As well as dependent on group projects.
