Learning How Computers Work

Over the past 2 weeks I have intermittently been watching the YouTube video series by MadMaxx – “Lets Build – 8 Bit Computer” – because I really wanted to learn how a computer works on the lowest technical level: the individual transistors.

In his series he covers how transistors work, how logic gates function and how these can be added together in a series of steps until an actual computer is built. This computer has an arithmetic logic unit and a random access memory, meaning it can do calculations and store the results.

If you are a fan of technology and have always wondered how computers convert electricity into meaningful information, I can really suggest watching this series:

I was born in the Netherlands but raised in Tanzania. My primary interest is in modern business, with a tendency to prefer working on technical concepts. I launched a Kickstarter campaign for my product called SODAQ Moja in 2013, and now started my own enterprise which can be found on www.kukua.cc
