how to learn more about computers

Computers can be some of the most confusing things in the world. On one hand, computers are supposedly designed to make our lives better through convenience and efficiency, among many other things, but, on the other hand, computers also make our lives much more complicated than they should be some times. Computers are ubiquitous nowadays, to the point in which they are now pocket sized. Who even knows what they will look like in the future? Needless to say, knowledge on and about computers is pretty scarce in some circles these days. Some people just seem to be born to understand things like computers and technology, while others have a differently wired brain that specializes in other tasks. But, there is no need to worry if you do not know that much about computers. You are not alone. The following are some suggestions on how you can start to begin to learn more about computers:

Lesson #1. Learn About Transistors:

Transistors are essentially what creates and manages the language that computers use. By learning about transistors, you can pretty much learn how computers communicate. In many ways, it is like learning any kind of language, which means you can know how to speak the language of the computer and thus be able to translate and decipher exactly what a computer is doing, how it is doing it and why it is doing it. A computer contains millions of transistors, which is what makes it so interesting to learn about, because a computer function is based upon how these small things interact with each other on a very large scale, even though it looks microscopic to the human eye.

Lesson #2. The Binary Code:

To this day, and since they were even invented, computers have spoken and communicated in binary language. This is the language of the computer than the transistors are passing back and forth between each other. Thus, if you want to learn more about computers, you will need to learn and master the binary code.

Lesson #3. The Memory:

Knowing how a computer’s memory works is like knowing how the human brain works- except for the fact that a computer’s memory is much, much better and more accurate than a human’s memory or brain- not to mention much more efficient. So, by knowing how a computer’s memory works, it will give you the knowledge you need in order to troubleshoot any computer issues that may come up, as well as getting the most out of your computer in the most efficient manner. It is very important to monitor the energy efficiency of your computer’s memory, as it can fix many problems that usually come up with computers.
