Training Context

Nowadays, everything is computer or internet. Even if in your job, you are not (yet) using a computer, you will at least need to know how to use a smartphone.

Tech careers are becoming more and more essential.

If you are going to enter the tech industry, for example, if you want to create a simple technical multiplayer game on smartphone, what you need to know and understand first is:

  1. How the computer works in general
  2. How number scores can be understood by the computer
  3. How simple calculations can be evaluated
  4. How the names of characters are stored in systems
  5. How the positions of objects are saved in the main memory
  6. How the networks enabling players to play with other players from around the world work


After this training you will be able to:

  • Understand how data is processed in a computer
  • Perform basic operations in binary
  • Understand how IP addresses work in a network and on the internet
