Class Experience

This initial class explains the lowest level of Internet communication through routing of packets. This builds a foundation for understand the higher levels coming in the subsequent classes. 
I have been deeply involved in the technology of the internet before there was an internet. I personally built online systems before the internet existed and watched it's creation while adopting the technology.  I managed and built everything from local networks to web services to interstate communication systems and then spent a decade developing high tech internet filtering devices for schools and business. I have lived and breathed the internet from top to bottom, inside and out, since it's birth. This experience gives me the ability to explain complex concepts in a very simple and understandable way. I am passionate about empowering the next generation to take over where we left off, but with a solid foundation.
