Link: Hardware 101

Hardware 101

This short intro to hardware was super helpful. I always want to know what I am actually doing, not just regurgitating pieces of code. The following video where he shows how the harddrive writes data was interesting too. It all makes so much more sense now!

  1. I’m SO psyched that you’re reading up on this stuff. Let’s get together before too long and talk storage subsystems! Also, I have this vision of you stopping by the office for one of our tech education sessions or an after-work meetup. In practice I am never around for them because of my double life, but I think it’d be great for you. I’ll try to ping you if some interesting ones come down the pike.

    • Yes! That would be amazing. I am doing this Stanford Startup Engineering class on Coursera and we are using Amazon Web Services and Heroku, so I am learning a ton. It is hard though! The instructors are assuming we have a lot of knowledge already, so I am googling up a storm.

      It’s hard for me to get to the city on a weeknight, because of Zia, but I could make it happen if there is a good event. Of course we are always happy to see you 🙂
