About This Class

Processors, GPUs, RAM, Memory, Storage, Resolution . . .
What does any of it mean? 

These days, just about everything is done using a computer. With how ubiquitous this technology is, its amazing how little most people know about the very devices they're using so intimately. Even those selling these devices often don't have a clue what it is they're talking about, which can be especially dangerous to consumers and their wallets!

In this class, I'll condense and explain the details of a computer, primarily focusing on the things that computer builders (such as Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc) compete with: the computer hardware itself.

The course is intended for anyone interested in learning the basics of how a computer operates. It is designed with the novice in mind - no prior experience with the technical side of computers is needed. This class also serves as an excellent foundation for those looking to eventually tackle a professional hardware certification like the CompTIA A+.
