Nowadays, most of us use a computer. It has become a part of our daily life. But how did computers get where they are nowadays? How have they evolved over the years?
Did you know the history of computers dates back to the early 1800s and began in the textile industry? Charles Babbage theorized it, Ada Lovelace appended it, Herman Hollerith counted it, Konrad Zuse built upon it, Howard Aiken added his spin, and Bill Gates and Steve Jobs sold it.
This documentary will take you on a journey from the 1800s through today as we watch computers and computing evolve. Current coding languages and trends are also covered.
