International Computing

  One of the modules I teach at Loughborough University ラフバラ大学 is International Computing. This was a new module in the 2008-2009 academic year. It is an optional final year module. The uptake this year (2009-2010 academic year) has increased from last year's 14 students to 24 students. The topics I cover in my module include:
  • Characteristics of Languages/Scripts
  • Software Internationalization & Localization
  • Character Sets
  • Unicode
  • Unicode Transformation Formats
  • Fonts
  • Keyboard Mappings
  • Input Methods
  • Internationalizing Websites
  • Country Codes
  • Language Tags
  • IDNs (Internationalized Domain Names)
  • Internationalizing LaTeX
This year I am including an additional topic which is the Language Features of the iPod Touch/iPhone.
