Binary Numbers — Counting and Converting

Binary numbers, ones and zeros — the language of computers. The entire Network Engineering industry can be diluted to having a goal of simply carrying those ones and zeros between two computers.

In this video, I talk through the concepts of Binary numbers, how to count in Binary, and how to convert between Binary and Decimal.

Initially, I wanted to create a video covering Access Control Lists. But to really understand ACLs, you have to first understand Wildcard Masks. So, I set out to create a video on Wildcard masks. But… to really understand Wildcard Masks, you have to first understand a little Binary. So here we are. =)

This video will be a precursor to a video on Wildcard Masks. Which will be a precursor to a video on Access Control Lists.
