The abacus, which emerged about 5,000 years ago in Asia Minor and is still in use today, may be considered the first computer. This device allows users to make computations using a system of sliding beads arranged on a rack. Early merchants used the abacus to keep trading transactions. But as the use of paper and pencil spread, particularly in Europe, the abacus lost its importance.

The real beginnings if computers as we know them today, however, lay with an English Mathematics Professor, Charles Charles Babbage (1791 – 1871). Frustrated at the many errors he found while examining calculations for the Royal Astronomical Society, Charles Charles Babbage Declared, “I wish to God these calculations had been performed by steam!” With these words, the automation of computers had begun.

But as the use of paper and pencil spread, particularly in Europe, the abacus lost its importance.

Charles Charles Babbage’s first attempt at solving this problem was in 1822 when he proposed a machine to perform differential equations, called a Difference Engine. Powered by steam and large as a locomotive, the machine would have a stored program and could perform calculations and print the result automatically. After working on the Difference engine for 10 years, Charles Charles Babbage was suddenly inspired to begin work on the first general purpose Computer, which he called the Analytical Engine.
