After writing code and hitting the "play" button, a black box makes sure the program executes correctly on your computer. During Game Tech 1 we will gradually lift the curtain on what really happens inside your computer system. We will take a closer look at the processes that are responsible for the program's execution and how all the separate parts communicate. After this course "close to the metal" computer techniques and terminology won't be mysteries any longer.
Some of the topics we will analyse:
- Numeric Representation
- Binary Arithmetic and Operations
- Sequential Logic
- ALU and ISA
- Virtual Memory
- Operating System
