More > writings, exemplifying the clarity, wisdom, and wit for which he is so well known. The other half of the book is new: Jackson and his colleagues gives their latest views on requirements, specifications, design, problem frames, and programming methods. Although many people have observed that software development should be more of an engineering discipline, few have drawn from the wider engineering literature more deeply or usefully than Jackson. Because of his work, many software engineers have a better perspective on their software and the real world it is intended to serve.< Less

CS Unplugged: An enrichment and extension programme for primary-aged students By Tim Bell, Ian H. Witten, Mike Fellows

This book shows creative ways to engage students with ideas from computer science and computational thinking without using a computer. Many of the activities involve physically moving around, and get... More > students thinking about deep issues without having to learn to program. A video preview of the activities can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOYy4kyLEHs The book was written by three computer science lecturers and two school teachers, and is based on our experience in classrooms as well as feedback from hundreds of educators over two decades. We have found that many important concepts can be taught without using a computer-in fact, sometimes the computer is just a distraction from learning. Often computer science is taught using programming first, but not every student finds this motivating, and it can be a significant barrier to getting into the really interesting ideas in computer science. So unplug your computer, and get ready to learn what computer science is really about!< Less

As we pointed out in The Architecture of Open Source Applications, architects look at thousands of buildings during their training, and study the critiques of many more. But most software developers... More > only ever get to know a handful of programs well — usually programs they wrote themselves. This book provides you with the chance to study how 26 experienced programmers think when they are building something new. The programs you will read about in this book were all written from scratch to solve difficult problems. A web server, a pedometer, a Python interpreter, a web-based spreadsheet, and many more applications are written, in 500 lines of code or less, and described by their creators so that you can learn from their insights and their mistakes.< Less

So there is a choice, we either teach our students multiple languages, or we find a way to teach them the basics of an object-oriented language, such as Java in a procedural fashion. A few things that I will stress in this book are: 1. Good Coding habits. Writing code so that others can read it. 2. Good Design habits. 3. Testing your code while building it. I call this Write a little, Test a little. 4. Project life cycle. I trust that this book will help in your understanding of Java and coding in general.< Less

Introduction to Computer Organization Ebook By Robert Plantz
eBook (PDF): $10.99
Also available in paperback version. Uses x86-64 (AMD/Intel) assembly language to introduce computer organization. Emphasis is on software; includes two chapters on hardware design. Intended... More > primarily for a first- or second-year college course but could also be used by professional programmers as an "introduction to the manuals." The approach is not to teach how to program in assembly language but to describe what is going on at the assembly language level when writing in a high level language. Based on the 64-bit mode. Each concept is introduced with C/C++ constructs followed by a discussion of the assembly language implementation. Assumes that the reader already knows basic programming concepts in a high-level language and builds on that. Uses the GNU/Linux, which allows a clear connection between C/C++ and assembly language. C Standard Library is used for I/O instead of supplying special routines. Online version at bob.cs.sonoma.edu.< Less
BasicSynth By Daniel Mitchell

Likewise, books on digital signal processing describe sound generation in terms of complex equations and leave it up to the reader to solve the practical problems of programming the equations. BasicSynth takes you beyond the theory and shows you how to create a custom synthesizer in software using the C++ programming language. The first part of the book explains the basic computer algorithms used to generate and process sound. Subsequent chapters explain instrument design using actual synthesis instruments. The example instruments are then combined with a text-based scoring system and sequencer to produce a complete working synthesizer. Complete source code to the C++ classes and example programs is available for download from the Internet.< Less
