Computing Quizzes & Trivia

While computing might be tied to modern day computers, its history dates back much further. Computing has a lot of definitions and differences but it generally involves designing, developing and building hardware and software, and using information to arrive at some kind of computation or end result. Do you know when the first abacus was invented? If you aren’t sure what an abacus even is, it’s an early calculator used for simple math computing.
