Our topic for today was databases! We discussed the softwares used for databases. There are MYSQL, oracle, Ms-access and etc. These softwares are usually used by businesses to keep track of their customers and inventory. Having databases are really important because it organizes information that can be retrieved anytime for further use. There are types of systems like inventory system, accounting system, enrollment system and registration system. These are what the softwares can do for you and give you a system to make things easier.
What we discussed in class was about software. There is a category in software called freeware, wherein you do not need to buy the software anymore but you can just download it for free from the Internet. We also talked about operating system. Such as the OS for apple and the jellybean for android. What’s bad about the OS for apple is that it isn’t compatible with any other device except for apple products. The android on the other hand is better since it can be versatile and it is compatible with any device.
Last meeting, we started our class witha quiz as usual. We then started ourdiscussion by talking about keyboards and how it used to look like, keyboards tire your wrists right away and I didn’t know that they made a v-shaped keyboard before which didn’t sell that well. We also talked about the transformation of the old mouse with the track ball to the laser mouse and now the touch pad or touch screen. Input and output devices were also discussed. Input devices are, microphones, keyboard, mouse, joystick, scanner. Output devices are, printers, speakers and etc. We discussed all these in class and now I know which is an input and output in a computer.
