I was going to write an intro, but didn’t think it would be much appreciated to make someone read through that nonsense, especially if it is not required.
I want to become a real computer nut, and I am simply asking guidance into where to start and what path to follow, pertaining to which topics of computer science I should chronologically follow so I can build up my knowledge of the field (I realise I have a strong, self - diagnosed case of long-line-ititus). I’m not a complete dummy however, and know the basic functions of computer equipment (e.g graphics cards, cpu’s etc), but I really want to know the ins and outs of how these parts work. I have already started to get the ball rolling on this, and decided to start from base 1 (base 2 actually) and began studying analogue circuitry, and sorta go off in the home brew computer direction. But the problem I find is that I cannot find a resources that start low level and gradually build up the complexity to point where I can follow along. Essentially what I am asking is a recommendation on books / tutorials that implement a “zero to hero” design philosophy.
Thank you very much,
P.S I apologize for my trifle impertinence by making you read a long - winded paragraph.
