Learn the fundamentals of computers and their role in digital systems.
Computers have become a core part of the modern world and affect us every day in some way. It’s likewise become important to gain a solid understanding of “what” computers are and how their setup of transferring information (i.e. data) leads to a smooth, functioning experience for us.

- How computers solve our digital problems
- The differences between hardware and software
- Fundamentals of input and output

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
