00:00:00 Discover the science behind computer programming and 101 computer science terms and concepts. Learn about binary, machine code, and RAM in this informative video.

šŸ‘Øā€šŸ’» Software engineering allows you to learn coding and get a well-paying job without needing deep understanding of how things work.

šŸ’» The central processing unit (CPU) is the core of modern computers, containing billions of tiny transistors.

šŸ”¢ Binary is the base system used in computers, represented by zeros and ones.

00:01:55 Learn computer science concepts, from memory addresses to programming languages, and understand how computers work and process data efficiently.

šŸ–„ļø The CPU and RAM are the brain of a computer, and they interact with input and output devices.

šŸ’» The shell is the entry point to the operating system, allowing users to interact with it via a command line interface.

šŸ”§ Programming languages simplify working with computers by abstracting complex systems and providing built-in data types and variables.

00:03:50 This video explains over 100 computer science concepts, including memory management, data types, and data structures.

Memory management involves allocating and freeing up memory throughout a program.

Different programming languages have different data types for numbers and characters.

Data structures like arrays, linked lists, and stacks are used to organize data.

00:05:46 Learn about various computer science concepts such as stacks, queues, hashes, trees, and graphs. Understand the importance of algorithms, functions, expressions, statements, conditional logic, and loops.

šŸ’” Data structures like arrays, queues, hashes, trees, and graphs are essential for organizing and storing data.

šŸ’» Algorithms are code that solves problems, and functions are the most fundamental mechanism for implementing algorithms.

šŸ” Code can include expressions that produce boolean values and statements that perform actions based on conditions or loop through a block of code.

00:07:41 Learn about various computer science concepts including loops, functions, recursion, algorithms, and more. Understand how they work and their applications.

šŸ”„ A while loop repeatedly runs a block of code until a condition becomes false.

šŸ” For loops are used to iterate over an array or iterable data structure.

šŸ” Recursion is when a function calls itself, but it needs a base condition to avoid infinite loops.

šŸ“Š Big-O notation is used to approximate the performance of algorithms at scale.

šŸ’” Developers have different algorithm types like brute force, divide and conquer, dynamic programming, and greedy algorithms.

00:09:31 An explanation of computer science concepts including backtracking algorithms, declarative and imperative programming, object-oriented programming, memory allocation, and multithreading.

šŸ” Backtracking algorithms explore all potential paths.

šŸ’» Declarative and imperative programming paradigms.

šŸ“š Object-oriented programming and the use of classes.

šŸ”— Inheritance and design patterns in OOP.

šŸ§± Instantiation of objects and memory management in OOP.

šŸ”€ The use of threads in the CPU.

00:11:22 Learn about computer science concepts, including virtual cores, concurrency models, virtual machines, TCP handshake, APIs, and printers.

šŸ–„ļø Programming languages support parallelism and concurrency models to handle multiple jobs on a single thread.

ā˜ļø Working with virtual machines in the cloud to simulate hardware and connect computers via the internet protocol.

šŸ”’ Establishing secure connections between computers with TCP handshake, SSL encryption, and sharing data with HTTP and APIs.
