# Foundations Section
This section provides an understanding of core computer hardware/software concepts, standards, and components present on modern-day computers
While computers have been evolving since the humans developed numbers and counting on fingers, modern computers have their roots in the 20th century.
Even before the technology existed to build a digital computer, scientists were developing the theories and designs that would eventual create the modern computer. Among these scientists are a few key people that layed the foundation upon which today's technology-rich world is built.
Review the common Base 10 (decimal) number system, then build up out understanding of how Base 2 (binary) numbers are used in computer organization.
Logic and Digital Circuits
Put binary data to use to design and build complex hardware elements to support modern computer hardware functions.
