Introduction to the History of Computing

Computers have a profound impact on various aspects of human life, including research, industry, education, government, medicine, law, social sciences, and even artistic endeavors like music and painting. The history of computing extends beyond the development of computing hardware and modern technology, encompassing methods designed for pen and paper or chalk and slate, sometimes aided by tables.

Concrete Devices in Computing
