In my life, the computer science technology is a passion in addition to being a job. I remember how extremely difficult it was during the 80s to have access to a computer-related technology or to find books or manuals to learn code programming. Fortunately nowadays everything is much more easy. Google is a window that looks on the human knowledge’s world, anyone, from any part of the the world, can open while he’s comfortably sitting on his armchair!
