There are few as qualified to teach computing as Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Among other figures, he's taking part in Code.org's ‘How Computers Work,' series, explaining the process of the course. “Everywhere you look, computers are changing the world,” says Gates. “Whether they're on our desktops, in our homes, our pockets, or just about anywhere else. But while most of us use this revolutionary daily, we don't often ask: How do computers work?” He goes on to explain the content of the series, from binary to circuits, hardware components, and code. The course contains a total of six videos, each 5-6 minutes long. Other figures including Valve VR employee Nat Brown, Khan Academy VP May-Li Khoe, and Amazon engineering manager Erica Gomez. Microsoft has previously collaborated with Code.org with its Minecraft coding tutorial, which seeks to spark technical creativity in young children.
