Foundations Of Computer Science

Computer Science Foundations :

Provide students with exposure to various information technology occupations and Pathways such as Networking Systems, Coding, Web Design, and Cybersecurity

what is Computing :

A set of principles or ideas, which underlies a myriad of technologies that are created based on the principles.

Technologies can be complex and constantly evolving but principles stays the same.

In the second half of the course, we will study various technologies to demonstrate the power of computing and how principles are applied.

Principles of Computing :

Computing is fundamentally about information processes.

One of the big ideas of computing is that information processes can be carried out purely mechanically via symbol manipulation.

The agent that does the computing, whether a thinking human being or a machine , does not matter.

Toward the end of the book we will see this is true for all modern computers - digital computers manipulate two symbols (zero and one) blindly according to instructions.
