Headline Goes Here

Hello, I’m a student in the History of Computing class at San Jose State University (http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/~mak/CS185C/ ). This is a work in progress that will turn into a final article by the end of the semester. I welcome your comments and advice!

Thank you

There are many different computer architectures. But the most prevalent architecture is Von Neumann architecture named after the brilliant American mathematician John Von Neumann (1903-1957) who conceived of the design. In Von Neumann architecture, all computers share the same basic architecture: memory, an I/O system, arithmetic/logic unit, and a control unit. And thus, it allows data and executable code to share the same address space. In addition, Von Neumann architecture is simpler, flexible and cheaper compared to other computer architecture such as Havard Architecture. Because of that, Von Neuman was more popular and favored even now. This has been also reflected and made huge effect in the design of the current and old computer programming languages.
