Computers, at the most basic level, store information in bits, or as a series of on and off states represented by ones and zeroes. Building on this basic principle, information in images, audio, text and other data can be stored, transmitted and encoded for humans and computers to understand and use. In this course, you will learn how this basic binary language can serve as the basis for all of computing. You will learn how, as a coder, understanding how a computer stores, communicates and encodes information is within your power to adapt and harness.
This course is divided into a number of chapters. After the introduction, the course dives into some of the history that went to the development of computers, technology and computer science. Then, the content explores the basis of how computer communications work with bits. From there, we expand into number systems and learn how abstraction of things we recognize in the real world with as text, large amounts of data and images have a way to be represented using digital bits.
