Long DescriptionIntroduction to Computing Systems: From bits & gates to C & beyond , now in its second edition, is designed to give students a better understanding of computing early in their college careers in order to give them a stronger foundation for later courses. The book is in two parts: (a) the underlying structure of a computer, and (b) programming in a high level language and programming methodology. To understand the computer, the authors introduce the LC-3 and provide the LC-3 Simulator to give students hands-on access for testing what they learn. To develop their understanding of programming and programming methodology, they use the C programming language. The book takes a "motivated" bottom-up approach, where the students first get exposed to the big picture and then start at the bottom and build their knowledge bottom-up. Within each smaller unit, the same motivated bottom-up approach is followed. Every step of the way, students learn new things, building on what they already know. The authors feel that this approach encourages deeper understanding and downplays the need for memorizing. Students develop a greater breadth of understanding, since they see how the various parts of the computer fit together.

We spent some time to give the site a face lift. We are working on a lot of changes in the background to improve your experience and some user interface changes come with that.

We aren't ready to release all of the background changes or the interface changes but we are ready to release the main cosmetic changes since they don't need the background changes to be ready.

These changes make browsing the site a lot easier on mobile devices and touch devices. We improved scalling and presentation. There are plenty of places left for improvement but we think we are off to a good start.

As always, we are happy to hear your feedback any time.
