The messages exchanged between these units can be data such as vehicle road speed, torque control message from the transmission to the engine, oil temperature, and many more. The information in this book is based on two documents of the SAE J1939 Standards Collection: J1939/21 - Data Link Layer J1939/81 - Network Management A Comprehensible Guide to J1939 is the first work on J1939 besides the SAE J1939 standards collection.

The Performance of Open Source Applications By Tavish Armstrong
eBook (PDF): $5.99
Download immediately.
In 1974, Donald Knuth wrote, "We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil." With computers available now that are... More > millions of times faster than those available then, today's programmers have even less reason to worry about shaving cycles and saving bytes than those a generation ago. But "less" isn't "none": every once in a while, squeezing the last ounce of performance out of the machine really does matter. This book is written by over a dozen developers who have grappled with slow code, memory leaks, or uncontrollable latency in open source software. They share their mistakes and successes, and give the reader an over-the-shoulder view of how they approached their specific challenges. With examples from bioinformatics research code to web browsers, the solutions are as varied as the problems. This book will help junior and senior developers alike understand how their colleagues think about performance.< Less

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.
