Seattle Computer Products (SCP) was a Tukwila, Washington, microcomputer hardware company which was one of the first manufacturers of computer systems based on the 16-bit Intel 8086 processor. SCP began shipping its first S-100 bus 8086 CPU boards to customers in November 1979, about 21 months before IBM introduced its Personal Computer which was based on the slower 8088 and introduced the 8-bit ISA bus. SCP shipped an operating system for that hardware about a year before the release of the PC, which was modified by Microsoft for the PC and renamed IBM PC DOS. SCP was staffed partly by high-school students from nearby communities who soldered and assembled the computers. Some of them would later work for Microsoft.
Microsoft, having worked with SCP before and seeking an operating system they could modify for the IBM PC, bought the rights to market the 86-DOS operating system to other manufacturers for US$25,000 that same month. On 27 July 1981, just prior to the launch of the IBM PC on the 12 August 1981, Microsoft bought the full rights to the operating system for an additional US$50,000, giving SCP a perpetual royalty-free license to sell 86-DOS (including updated versions) with its computer hardware. Realizing that Microsoft was making significant profit on the 86-DOS operating system, SCP attempted to sell it along with a stand-alone inexpensive CPU (without any other circuitry). This was allowed as per SCP's license with Microsoft, which let SCP sell the operating system with their 8086-based computers; this operating system was marketed as "Seattle DOS", and a CPU was included in the box it shipped in.

Thompson was found guilty of Wire fraud, five counts of unauthorized access to a protected computer and damaging a protected computer. The jury found her not guilty of access device fraud and aggravated identity theft.
Wire fraud is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Illegally accessing a protected computer and damaging a protected computer are punishable by up to five years in prison. The ultimate sentence is up to Judge Lasnik who will consider the sentencing guidelines and other statutory factors.
An overview of computer program design and problem solving with a focus on problem analysis, program development, testing and debugging. Students will use functions, control structures, and data structures to develop a variety of increasingly complex programs to solve scientific and technical problems. Students will learn to document and test their solutions. Programming language may vary.
General principles of modern programming, including how to design, implement, document, test and debug computer programs, using the Java programming language. Topics include objects, messages, expressions, statements, methods, classes, conditionals, iteration, arrays, and collections. Computer fee. Transfer class.
Riko (CS BS Student)"I decided to go for my degree in computer science because of my love for creating. I chose the bachelor's at North Seattle College because it's exciting to be in the first cohort and I already love the staff at North and the support they provide."
Should you already own a relatively new laptop or choose not to purchase a Dell through the student program, your portable computer must meet the following minimum specifications. Please make sure your computer is able to connect to the network.

In Seattle alone, there are thousands of computer-related jobs waiting to be filled. But at the University of Washington, the number of bachelor's degrees in computer science is the same now as it was more than a decade ago. A lot of students have been rebuffed in their effort to major in computer science or computer engineering.
There are some job seekers who aren't having much trouble finding work - computer scientists. In Seattle alone, there are thousands of computer-related jobs waiting to be filled. And yet here's the hang-up. While those jobs in Seattle are available, one of Washington State's leading universities is not graduating enough people to fill them. The number of Bachelor's degrees awarded in computer science has remained unchanged for the past decade.
KAUFMAN: On the University of Washington campus there are lots of students who want to become those developers and engineers, but many have been rebuffed in their effort to major in computer science or computer engineering.
KAUFMAN: Porter hopes she will finally be accepted into the program later this year. But three out of four students who've completed the prerequisites and want to get into the major won't. That's deeply troubling to Ed Lazowska, who holds the Bill and Melinda Gates chair in computer science. 041b061a72
