Computers from 0 to 1: Part 000: Binary, Transistors, and Logic Gates


Read More...
When I developed an interest in computer hardware as an engineer at college, I was frustrated that there was no neat, layman-friendly package out there for me to get a broad, conceptual understanding of the subject area.

That’s what drove me to write this book.

This succinct book, first of a series of eight, has turned the “meant to be” rigorous study of computer hardware into a light reading experience. I have thoroughly simplified my accumulated knowledge from my computer engineering degree for you to simply enjoy while relaxed on a couch. No homework, no exams, no professor speaking incomprehensible gibberish.

By the end of this highly condensed book, you will have already leapfrogged the majority of the “normal” people out there in terms of understanding binary numbers, transistors, and logic gates – the very building blocks of our greatest innovation. Heck, if you feel like it tomorrow, you could slickly join the two computer engineers in front of you smugly tossing around a bunch of jargon while waiting in line for coffee – “You know, you could implement the two’s complement simply by using the NOT gate and incrementing by 1.”

Imagine just how awesome that would feel.
