Getting started in the world of computing

The great importance that computer science is acquiring in recent years makes many people think about learning a little about this field. In today's article we offer you here are some guidelines to help you learn quickly and easily.

Getting started in the world of computing

The first step in learning computer science is to know how to move around in the desktop environment we have installed. Many people say that Linux is a better system than Windows for programming and performing complex tasks, however, the best system will be the one that its user understands and manages best.

Before we start learning anything else we must mastering some tools well such as the desktop, the Internet browser, text editors and a little bit of the command window. These four tools are basic to any field we want to study.

After learning how the basic tools work, it's time to learn a little bit about the inner workings of our team. The three basic fields with which you usually start when you are not yet very familiar with the subject are the following:

Pear to pear networksThe creation of small local networks between computers is a good practice to learn how computers communicate with each other and especially the use of IP addresses, a basic topic in computer science.

Simple languagesSome languages such as bash or batch allow you to create quick and simple scripts with which you can better understand some of the structures of more complicated languages (loops, functions, variables, etc.).

Internal structure of computers: Assembling our own computers piece by piece helps to understand how everything works inside (processor, RAM, hard disk, etc.) and the most important parameters of each part (frequency, RPM, memory, etc.).

Finally, one thing we must always bear in mind in computing is the importance of practice. Reading books can help us to get started and to know what the subject is about, however, if we do not put into practice what we read, we will never assimilate the concepts well. and we will gradually forget them.

As always, remember that you can go to our forum to ask any questions you may have.
