We live in a world built by our collective ingenuity and imagination. We see further and more than our predecessors, not because of keener vision or greater heights but because we are standing on the shoulders of giants that came before us.

The Japanese word "sensei" literally means the person who came before.

Do you remember the first time you touch the computer keyboard?

Do you remember the typewriter clanging sound?

Do you remember your first HTML rendered on the world wide web or your first "hello world" application?

Maybe you were a gamer, and you blew the cartridges on your family computer?

No doubt, your first lines of code relies on the combined outcomes of thousands of years of accumulated knowledge and wisdom.

Today, we will navigate through history to discover how our ancestors made knowledge out of information. We'll talk about the technologies that have marked contemporary and modern history. Then we'll go back to modern times to talk about the first web server, virtualization, cloud computing, Docker and Kubernetes. This is the tale of computing, in which humans are heroes, and their greatest weapon is the imagination.
