INF 410 - Code and Power

3 Credit Hours
Computer code, the language that drives information and communication technologies, is inherently powerful. It frames how we think, prescribes our actions, and controls how we interact with others. In this course students assess technology by exploring specific technologies and their code constructions. Topics include open and closed source coding, communities, and culture, with special emphasis on competing value sets and the role of intellectual property rights (e.g., the DMCA) in protecting closed code constructions.

Prerequisite(s): INF 110  and INF 120  (or concurrent enrollment)
