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.

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:
