The Beginning

Perhaps the most significant date in the history of computers is the year 1936. It was in

this year that the first "computer" was developed. It was created by Konrad Zuse and dubbed

the Z1 Computer. This computer stands as the first as it was the first system to be fully

programmable. There were devices prior to this, but none had the computing power that sets it

apart from other electronics.
