Forth o FORTH es un lenguaje de programación para computadores y un ambiente de programación ideado por Charles H. Moore y Elisabeth Rather entre los años 1965 y 1970 en el National Radio Astronomy Observatory de Kitt Peak, Arizona.
In recent years the subject of computer programminghas been recognized as a discipline whose mastery is fundamental and crucial to the success of many engineering projects and which is amenable to scientific treatement and presentation. It has advanced from a craft to an academic discipline.
As CPU cores become both faster and more numerous, the limiting factor for most programs is now, and will be for some time, memory access. Hardware designers have come up with ever more sophisticated memory handling and acceleration techniques–such as CPU caches–but these cannot work optimally without some help from the programmer.
This book analyzes the methods, technologies, standards, and languages to structure and describe data in their entirety. It reveals common features, hidden assumptions, and ubiquitous patterns among these methods and shows how data are actually structured and described independently from particular trends and technologies.
Ada is the programming language of choice for high integrity software systems and is used extensively in industries such as transportation and aerospace. Special features of the book include: Object-oriented programming, concurrency, and embedded and real-time systems are emphasized. Ada for Software Engineers explains the language concepts and the terminology of the standards document, the Ada Reference Manual (ARM).
The goal of the Y et Another Haskell Tutorial is to provide a complete intoduction to the Haskell programming language. It assumes no knowledge of the Haskell language or familiarity with functional programming in general. However, general familiarity with programming concepts (such as algorithms) will be helpful.
Python is a high level scripting language which is interpreted, interactive and object-oriented. A key attribute of python is its clear and understandable syntax which should allow you to quickly get up to speed and develop useful application, while the syntax is similar enough to lower level languages, for example C/C++ and Java, to provide a background from which you can grow your expertise.
The Internet and the World Wide Web have changed mankind, forever. It is to early too tell, but their impact may be as great as the combustion engine or the introduction of electric devices. The Internet gave universal access to information, not just information that broadcasters or newspapers thought that was important, but information that interests the 'websurfer'. However the Internet is not a one way street, every Internet user is also a producer: people make websites, maintain blogs, post tweets, and socialize via social networks.
Theoretical computer science treats any computational subject for which a good model can be created. Research on formal models of computation was initiated in the 1930s and 1940s by Turing, Post, Kleene, Church, and others. In the 1950s and 1960s programming languages, language translators, and operating systems were under development and therefore became both the subject and basis for a great deal of theoretical work. The power of computers of this period was limited by slow processors and small amounts of memory, and thus theories (models, algorithms, and analysis) were developed to explore the efficient use of computers as well as the inherent complexity of problems. The former subject is known today as algorithms and data structures, the latter computational complexity.
Category Theory for Computing Science is a textbook in basic category theory, written specifically to be read by researchers and students in computing science.
There's so many Arduino's out there, it may get a little confusing. We wanted to clarify for people some of the changes in the latest version.
R is a free software programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. The R language is widely used among statisticians and data miners for developing statistical software and data analysis. Polls and surveys of data miners are showing R's popularity has increased substantially in recent years.
In order to reduce the complexity of designing and building computers, nearly all of these are made to execute relatively simple commands (but do so very quickly). A program for a computer must be built by combining these very simple commands into a program in what is called machine language. Since this is a tedious and errorprone process most programming is, instead, done using a high-level programming language. This language can be very different from the machine language that the computer can execute, so some means of bridging the gap is required. This is where the compiler comes in.
The purpose of this book is to give the reader a better understanding of how computers really work at a lower level than in programming languages like Pascal.
BASIC (an acronym for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) is a family of general-purpose, high-level programming languages whose design philosophy emphasizes ease of use.
Firefox OS is a new mobile platform developed by Mozilla and its partners. Devices running Firefox OS are already available in many countries and will reach even more places by the end of this year.
Professors often rely on textbooks to teach undergraduate and graduate networking courses. While there are many good introductory textbooks, there are very few books on advanced networking topics that could be suitable to graduate courses in networking. To fill this gap, SIGCOMM Education Committee has launched a community project to develop a high-quality, open-source, edited eBook on “Recent Advances in Networking”. This eBook will be distributed online via the SIGCOMM website.
Most books on data structures assume an imperative language such as C or C++. However, data structures for these languages do not always translate well to functional languages such as Standard ML, Haskell, or Scheme.
