Course introduction

Welcome, to the Computer Fundamentals course. I’m excited you’ve decided to embark on this journey with me! Have you ever wondered how the complex, fascinating world of computers works but found yourself bewildered by the technical jargon and complexity? Or have you ever been curious about coding yet felt hampered by not understanding some of the basics? If you’re nodding your head, you’re in the right place.

Our world today is profoundly influenced by technology, with computers playing a major role. Everything from your smartphone to self-driving cars, drones, and robotics all revolve around the fundamental principles of computer science. And this course is your stepping stone into this amazing world!

In this Computer Fundamentals course, I will demystify the most important but intimidating concepts. We’ll be starting from the basics, understanding the different components of a computer and how they work together. Ever wondered about the difference between operating systems like Windows, MacOS, and Linux? We will dive into all three and explore their strengths and weaknesses.

You’ll also learn about files and directories and their important role in organization and storage. But most importantly, I will take you into the command line world. That’s right! We’re talking about that black screen with white text that movie hackers type into. I will tell you what it is, why it’s so critical, and even how to navigate and use it, regardless of your operating system!

The beauty is that these are concepts you’re likely familiar with, but we will deepen your understanding, filling any knowledge gaps along the way. The goal is to better prepare you for the Python Fundamental (Python for beginners) course on this website. So, are you ready to dive into this exciting journey and become a computer wiz? This course will make everything ‘click,’ and you’ll be surprised at how much you already know!

Let’s start this amazing journey together, and remember: every expert was once a beginner. Your time to start is NOW!
