Computer Science Illuminated, Second Edition provides a breadth first introduction to the dynamic and diverse field of computer science. Drawing upon the teaching experience of two of today?s most respected computer science educators, Nell Dale and John Lewis, this text guides readers through an extensive overview of all aspects of the discipline. The layers of a computing system are carefully explained beginning with the information layer; working through the hardware, programming, operating system, application, and communication layers; and ending with a discussion of the limitations of computing.
Ideal for introductory computing and computer science courses, Computer Science Illuminated, Second Edition?s rigorous exploration of computing systems provides computer science majors with a solid foundation for further study, and offers non-majors a broad and complete introduction to computing.
