Lucian Wischik: Inside VB.NET Async and Customizing Awaitable Types Lucian Wischik digs into the new VB functions and iterators being developed for asynchronous development. You can get an early look at these new features, available as the Async CTP, today! Give VB.NETAsync a try. In this whiteboard-heavy conversation, Lucian demonstrates how to make custom awaitable types and provides deep insights into the mechanics behind and inside Async.

The goal of the Genetic Origins Program is to allow students to use their own DNA variations (polymorphisms) as a means to explore our shared genetic heritage and its implications for human health and society. Genetic Origins focuses on two types of DNA variations: an Alu insertion polymorphism on chromosome 16 (PV92) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the control region of the mitochondrial (mt) chromosome. With two alleles and three genotypes, PV92 is a simple genetic system that il

C++ Console Lesson 24: Fundamental Data Types
More at http://xoax.net
This C++ video tutorial explains the fundamental data types that are used in C++ and their ranges of values. C++ provides the following fundamental built-in data types: Boolean, character, integer and floating-point. It also enables us to create our own user-defined data types using enumerations and classes.
C++ Console Lesson 26: Enumerations
More at http://xoax.net
This C++ video tutorial explains how to use declare and use enumerated types in C++. enumerated type (also called enumeration or enum) is a data type consisting of a set of named values called elements, members or enumerators of the type. The enumerator names are usually identifiers that behave as constants in the language. A variable that has been declared as having an enumerated type can be assigned any of the enumerators as a value.

2.6 Summary of Section 2 The results of the visual attention experiments we have considered can be interpreted as follows. Attention can be directed selectively towards different areas of the visual field, without the need to re-focus. The inability to report much detail from brief, masked visual displays appears to be linked to the need to assemble the various information components. The visual information is captured in parallel, but assemb

Etude de connaissances d'élèves de seconde sur les mutations génétiques.
L'ADN est une notion qui pose problème aux élèves de lycée aussi nous nous proposons d'identifier et de classer les conceptions des élèves sur ce sujet. Pour cette analyse, nous avons utilisé la notion de mutation, qui permet d'étudier à la fois, comme nous le souhaitions, la structure et la fonction de l'ADN. Après avoir effectué une étude bibliographique et une analyse du savoir, nous avons cherché à vérifier l'existence de six niveaux biologiques dans les productions des élèv
