This book assumes very little or no knowledge of how computers work, and shows how to write understandable programs in Java. Even though most readers will not wish to become professional programmers, programming is fun and useful, and, in today's world it is important for professionals in any field to appreciate what computers can (and cannot) do well. To reach this level of understanding, Per Brinch Hansen goes beyond the routine skills of a computer user and explains the art of programming in some depth, allowing readers to write Java programs for use on the WWW or company's Intranet. Although a book about programming with Java, the same methods can be used for systematic programming in such languages as C, Fortran, and Pascal. The book makes a splendid text for a one semester course on beginning programming and is backed by teaching aids available at the author's Website.
