About this deal

He has also taught courses in algorithms, programming, computer networking, distributed systems, and VLSI design. For five of those years he served as head of the Computer Science Department, and for ten of them he served as Dean of the School of Computer Science. It lays the groundwork for readers to delve into more intensive topics such as computer architecture, embedded systems, and cybersecurity. In addition, the book includes numerous diagrams and visualizations to help readers understand the inner workings of computer systems. His current work focuses on the notion of autograding, that is, programs that evaluate the quality of other programs.

Together with Professor O’Hallaron, he developed the course 15-213, Introduction to Computer Systems, at Carnegie Mellon that is the basis for this book. All the chapters are excellent, except maybe chapter 7 on linking and chapter 8 on exceptional control flow. If you like me, were left hanging on multiple such foundational topics, and found yourself more than once faced with the fact that we don't necessarily understand the systems we work on at a granular level, and want to do something about it, then you should pick up this book right away. I have only academic experience with C, yet was able to follow along well enough with the examples adequately. Each topic is presented in a clear and concise manner, with numerous examples and exercises to reinforce the material.One of the strengths of the book is its use of C programming language to illustrate the concepts being presented.

While reading the book, you feel like traveling in the computer world with a smart compass that keeps telling you everything you just need, no more, no less.Some book may show sales disclaimer such as "Not for Sale or Restricted in US" on the cover page but it is absolutely legal to use.
