Welcome to the Department of Practical Computation!

What is "practical computation?" Computer education seems to be split between two different camps: Computer Science, which studies the nature of computation and the math behind it with only a passing regard for practical applications; and Information Technology, which teaches the skills needed to actually operate computers and networks with little emphasis on the underlying algorithms and theory. What we aim to do is somewhere in the middle — we want to explore the application of theory and math toward practical solutions so that people can get things done and understand why it works.

Currently, we have a blog, but in the future we plan on adding proper tutorials and references.
