A great course. Although I have come from a background in website development, I still picked up many useful tips and information about the fundamentals of computers and how they work.

por DRSep 20th 2019

Very good course as an introduction to computing. Could stand to be more challenging, but the material is certainly easy enough for a true beginner.
