Ever wonder how the internet works? This class will give you a quick introduction to the networks around you: from the Internet, to your office network, to your home network. We will pull back the hood and show you the basics of the technologies that enable the Internet to work. Instructor is Brian Dirk.

Additionally, you will make a functioning 10-foot network cable to take home. 

This class will cover:  

• Basic network setup and configuration (AKA a "topology")

• Routing and IP Addressing

• The "physical layer" (AKA network cabling standards and how to construct your own custom length Category 5 network cable)
