CSC370.1: Computing History
The first session looks at the history of computing from the time just before electronic computers to the first commercial computing systems.
Videos contain clips from old lectures and interviews with the pioneers of electronic computing, along with still and moving images of many of the first computers.
While some clips show their age, the videos give a rare opportunity to glimpse the world as it was and gain insight into the incredible hurdles that had to be overcome to bring about the dawn of modern computing.
