Get into computers: Step 1

I’m going to provide more specific direction for the various aspects of . But not today.

Today, I’m going to show you how to get a whiff of what the various aspects of computers are. 

I say whiff, because it’s not really a taste. I’ll give you specific steps later that will help you actually DO different aspects of computers so you can figure out what really excites you. 

But until we get to that point, I want to point you to something that can at least introduce you to the concept of the various aspects. 

Firstly, and foremostly, get yourself to

Seriously, you can learn almost everything on YouTube. The downside of YouTube is that most of the content is not curated, so if you search, “how to create an AI,” you’ll get a TON of results that run the gamut of AI, from math, to starting AI companies, to coding AI. YouTube has lots of content, but it’s like throwing you into a library without a librarian to give you a path to travel that takes your knowledge from A and deposits it firmly at Z, without taking a side trip of Klingon. (This isn’t far off from learning how to code on your own). 

You’ll spend a lot of time wading through irrelevant bits in YouTube, but at least it’s a place where you can learn something. 

Just make your searches specific. Don’t search “how to do computers”. You’re going to get more cruft than anything. 

If you are interested in coding, try, “how to write code.” If you curious about fixing computers, try “how to fix computers.” 

Do it! And let me know how it goes!
