  • A new framework for understanding computing a coherent set of principles spanning technologies, domains, algorithms, architectures, and designs.Computing is usually viewed as a technology field that advances at the breakneck speed of Moore s Law If we turn away even for a moment, we might miss a game changing technological breakthrough or an earthshaking theoretical deveA new framework for understanding computing a coherent set of principles spanning technologies, domains, algorithms, architectures, and designs.Computing is usually viewed as a technology field that advances at the breakneck speed of Moore s Law If we turn away even for a moment, we might miss a game changing technological breakthrough or an earthshaking theoretical development This book takes a different perspective, presenting computing as a science governed by fundamental principles that span all technologies Computer science is a science of information processes We need a new language to describe the science, and in this book Peter Denning and Craig Martell offer the great principles framework as just such a language This is a book about the whole of computing its algorithms, architectures, and designs.Denning and Martell divide the great principles of computing into six categories communication, computation, coordination, recollection, evaluation, and design They begin with an introduction to computing, its history, its many interactions with other fields, its domains of practice, and the structure of the great principles framework They go on to examine the great principles in different areas information, machines, programming, computation, memory, parallelism, queueing, and design Finally, they apply the great principles to networking, the Internet in particular.Great Principles of Computing will be essential reading for professionals in science and engineering fields with a computational branch, for practitioners in computing who want overviews of less familiar areas of computer science, and for non computer science majors who want an accessible entry way to the field.

    1. Michael Scott on said:

      TODO review:+++ anything written on computing by Peter J. Denning, who spent decades helping define and defend computing/computer science/informatics, during a period also as President of the ACM, deserves a first and even a second reading. (This is my first of this book, so perhaps I should wait until my second to fully understand the content.)+++ idea of identifying the great principles of computing+++ idea that computing cannot (and should not) be defined as in a dictionary, because this trad [...]
