9780201876987: The Art and Craft of Computing

Gives students a firm rooting in the fundamental principles of computer science, and an appreciation of the correlation between those principles and an introduction to programming. Maintains strong coverage of the topics taught in the traditional introductory courses including algorithms and basic elements of programming languages and then goes further to introduce higher level topics such as the structures of operating systems, databases and productivity tools.

From the Back Cover:

Written primarily for students who do not specialize in Computer Science, The Art and Craft of Computing aims to take away the mystery behind the way that computers work; students will not only learn what happens when they start to program a computer for the first time but also how and why it happens.

This book will provide students with a strong grounding in most of the major topics covered in introductory Computer Science courses, from algorithms and architectures to distributed systems and the Internet. Coverage of these topics is comprehensive and rigorous yet retains a practical focus with an emphasis on software engineering and computer programming.

The Art and Craft of Computing:
  • provides global coverage of the Computer Science discipline building progressively from fundamental principles
  • uses the ANSI-C programming language throughout, a language that students can use to write programs relating to their own studies and real life
  • introduces C++, a natural evolution of C that supports object-oriented programming
  • takes a unique 'bottom up' approach to explain the functions of Computer Science, from the internals of computer structure and basic programming concepts to the externals of visible end-user applications
  • has a helpful modular structure which enables students and lecturers to navigate quickly to topics specific to their individual needs
  • contains a wealth of examples throughout the text, together with a wide range of exercises of varying degrees of depth and difficulty which allows students to put the theories and principles of Computer Science into practice
