For the Computer Guy in all of us

1920-x-1080_11

This article is for the computer guy, the little geek in all of us… or at least some of us, or many of my generation. The ’90, a cool time to be a child. I remember even now my first desktop computer, that I got in 5th grade as a Christmas present from my parents. It had a AMD K-6 a single core CPU of 550 MHz, 64 MB of RAM, a 12 MB graphics card, a CD-ROM, Floppy Drive, and a solid 10 GB of disk space! The internet was only through a cable and the speed was measured in KB. 🙂

Today, even the low end mobile devices are better than my first computer, 14 years ago. Technology evolves so fast and sometimes it’s hard to keep up.

The doubling of computer processing speed every 18 months, known as Moore’s Law, is just one manifestation of the greater trend that all technological change occurs at an exponential rate. 

Given that most things today are powered by computers, knowing to use a computer becomes more and more as basic as knowing the alphabet. Soon enough it will become mainstream to teach programming languages starting primary school, like we used to take foreign language classes.

Whether you are getting a bit rusty and want to get back on track, prepare for a job interview or even learn advanced stuff, there is no better guy than Eli The Computer Guy! You can ask advice for IT related question on his web page, and his YouTube channel is full of useful videos covering a vast area of subjects.
