Explore hardware and software’s role in managing data!
No matter what kind of digital system you’re working with, controlling data is a core part of its purpose. Hardware and software play a leading role in not only how we keep data on our machines, but also how we protect our data as we transfer information from computer to computer.
In this course, you’ll explore these fundamental concepts while learning about principles related to operating systems, data compression, and encryption. You’ll also investigate the implications secure data has for society in terms of how we interact with and design our digital systems.
Regardless of how you use computers in the future, these fundamentals will ensure you have a greater understanding of technology and how your private information is kept safe on the internet!
You will learn:
- How operating systems manage hardware
- Ways operating systems protect computers
- Lossy vs. lossless data compression
- Foundations of network encryption
- Why we use encryption
- The purpose of Domain Name Systems (DNS)

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.
