The digital landscape

You may have heard the term Digital landscape. We have no idea what that means, but we thought we'd share the image we get whenever we hear the term. This course material is less about buzzwords from academia and more about the terms used when doing IT, in the sense of working with computers, programming, understanding how data is represented (even a landscape can be represented digitally, like a picture or image of a landscape) etc.
