About this deal

In 2003, Professor O’Hallaron and the other members of the Quake team won the Gordon Bell Prize, the top international prize in high-performance computing.

A plethora of hardware features and a large set of software come together to make this simple magic possible.By that I don't mean that they don't give you a good overview, they do, but you're always left with this nagging feeling of "But.

He is a fellow of both the ACM and the IEEE and a member of both the US National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The authors provide all lab exercises online for those on the self study path and they are easily the most exciting part of the experience which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This book argues that a good programmer needs to be aware of all the afore mentioned concepts and these are what the book tries to cover. Although I didn't finish it, (picked it up as I needed along cs213) from the amount of content I see online from students from all over the world using it as a basis for understanding systems, it is a must read to understand systems.

The great thing about this book is that is leaves no questions unanswered about the topics it covers. For five of those years he served as head of the Computer Science Department, and for ten of them he served as Dean of the School of Computer Science. And you walk away not just with a solid understanding of the concepts but also an almost reverent appreciation for the beauty of these complex systems.This is an international edition textbook with identical content as the US version and is usually paperback bound instead of hardcover. It's a very clear and well-written book of computer systems from a programmer's perspective, with important emphasis on parts of the system (hardware, OS, application program) that are important for a software programmer to understand.
