About the Author

Dr. Umakishore Ramachandran received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1986 under the direction of Marvin Solomon. Since then he has been with Georgia Tech (home of the yellow jackets), where he is currently a Professor in the Core Computing Division in the College of Computing. His research interests are in the area of architectural design, programming, and analysis of parallel and distributed systems. At Georgia Tech, he has been involved in the design and evaluation of several large experimental systems including Clouds, Beehive, and Stampede (joint with Compaq Cambridge Research Lab), and studying their scalability from an applications perspective. Currently, in the ubiquitous presence project, he is investigating software and hardware mechanisms for ubiquitous distributed computing for an environment comprised of distributed sensors, embedded data concentrators, and backend clusters. He received a Presidential Young Investigator (PYI) Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1990, the Georgia Tech Doctoral Thesis Advisor award in 1993, the College of Computing Outstanding Senior Research Faculty award in 1996, the College of Computing Dean's Award in 2003, and the College of Computing William "Gus'' Baird Teaching Award in 2004.

William D. "Bill" Leahy, Jr. is currently working as a lecturer at Georgia Tech teaching introductory Computer Science. Bill earned his MS in Computer Science, from Georgia Institute of Technology, his MS in Ceramic Engineering, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and a BS in Ceramic Engineering, from Virginia Tech. Visit Bill's web page for more information about his education and experience.

The textbook has very detailed material and pretty straightforward to understand.

Moreover, the authors use daily activities as ways to think about computing concepts, which I really liked.

This is a phenomenal book.
It helps you understand everything through real-world examples, which is an enormous help when dealing with such a complicated topic. Incredibly interesting and well-written, this book comes highly recommended by me and all my peers.

With today's growing concerns in the field of technology that the field is developing so rapidly that there never is a single person who knows everything about a certain software, or machine... this book becomes highly valuable.

Whether you are taking a course on computer systems or want to figure out just what exactly that magical black box next to your monitor is doing, this book will help you understand it quickly, simply, and efficiently.

Easily one of the best textbooks out there.

The book gives you enough introductory information for you to decide which path to take: are you are a digital hardware enthusiast who has always wondered how an operating system interfaces and commands all the things you can actually see and feel on your board, or will you be an OS hacker who wants to slice and dice, break and/or remake you Linux box, or are you going to be an internetwork specialist who likes to take control of information flow on the intra/Internet. If you use this book effectively (on your own, or part of a course at your college), you'll be building and understanding your own computer system, and also have a good deal of knowledge about computer and other device networks, by the end of it. In short, an excellent material full of fundamental information to have as a computer engineer/scientist.

The textbook is written by the professor of the class. The textbook has very detailed material and pretty straightforward to understand. The chapters are long, which is expected. Very good textbook. Whatever you need to know for the course is in this textbook.
