The Evolution of Computer Science (in a Nutshell)

I’ll be discussing The Evolution of Computer Science in a nutshell in this article or post or whatever you’d like to call it.

Since we all know that computer history is very ancient, I don’t even know, to be frank, what I’m talking about right now. So let’s not waste any more time and get right on the main content.

The Evolution of Computer Science (in a Nutshell)

It all started back in 1703 when Gottfried Leibniz introduces the binary system. Oh, let just not dive into details.

    • Researchers create injectable mesh computer to merge into brains.
  • The evolution in Computer science is still going on.

This is how computer science evolution has happened and still happening, and if I missed anything write that in comments below. Or if you have any suggestions please write it down in the comments below.
