Book Description

This book will introduce you to the world of computers, robots, and computing. You will learn that computing is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes. Robots have been in existence much longer than computers.

The word "personal" is key to the design of the material in this text. Computers and robots are no longer the realm of large corporate offices and industrial manufacturing scenarios. They have become personal in many ways.

This book is targeted for college-level introductory computing courses (widely recognized as CS1 in the computing education community). Besides the fundamentals of computing you will also learn about the program development process, basic robotics, media computation, social implications of computers and robotics, and the nature and limits of computation.
