Coding Academy Experience

I had had no prior experience when it came to coding before I tried CodingAcademy. To be honest, I thought learning how to code was going to be extrememly difficult, but I was pleased to know that it is possible to understand by using basic math and reasoning.

I would definitely consider trying out other tutorials on the website. The tutorials are a great way to get started on coding and to forget about the fear that comes along with learning something that seems so complicated. I would definitely recommend it for everyone.

IBM System/370 Model 145



The International Business Machines Corporation introduced the IBM System/370 Model 145 in 1970. It used 145 silicon memory chips, rather than magnetic core technology that had been used up to that point. One of its advantages included the ability to use IBM’s then newest and fastest disk storage devices. Read more about the IBM System/370 Model 145 here.
