Crash Course Computer Science Preview

Hello world! I’m Carrie Anne Philbin and welcome to Crash Course Computer Science! So, computers really have allowed us to do some pretty amazing things – think global telecommunications, international commerce, global transportation, breakthroughs in medicine, distributed education, online shopping, online dating, just the Internet in general. Computers are allowing us to explore our own

Programming Basics: Statements & Functions: Crash Course Computer Science #12

Hi, I’m Carrie Anne, and welcome to CrashCourse Computer Science! Last episode we discussed how writing programs in native machine code, and having to contend with so many low level details, was a huge impediment to writing complex programs. To abstract away many of these low-level details, Programming Languages were developed that let programmers concentrate

Alan Turing: Crash Course Computer Science #15

Hi, I’m Kerry Ann and welcome to Crash Course computer science. Over the past few episodes, we’ve been building up our understanding of computer science fundamentals, such as functions, algorithms and data structures. Today, we’re going to take a step back and look at the person who formulated many of the theoretical concepts that underline
