This week’s new thing to come out of Google in their never-ending supply of endeavours is the Google Code University.

This site is aimed at Computer Science students and educators and discusses important material usually covered in computer courses. So things like programming algorithms, AJAX, Web security and that sort of thing are covered.

The content on the site is licensed under the Creative Commons license, and therefore is freely usable by the academic world.

The amount of content is still a little light though, but I am sure that this will change, since it is easy for anybody to contribute to the site, and certainly looks like a good site to watch for trying to find resources on those sometimes used, but easily forgotten, topics that academics love so much, but only interest programmers in the real world when they are needed. It is perfect for a bit of a refresher for those of us out in the field.
