This webpage was created by John Kopplin as part of his commercial “Computer Science Lab” home curriculum, intended to help students of all ages learn the languages used in embedded devices such as printers and mp3 players. These particular four webpages document the history of computers using images and short descriptions. Starting at the abacus, moving through Babbage’s Difference Engine, and ending up at the Intel microprocessors in the late 1970s, this multi-national history is quite thorough and is a solid reference.
