Computing Concepts for Information Technology

This will someday become an eBook available free to professors, students, and anyone who might benefit from it. At the moment, only a few chapters are complete, and only Chapters One, Two, and Seven are in final form. (Final form means it’s been reviewed by a peer and by a subject matter expert, and proofread by at least one person who’s not me.) I’ve published the completed chapters and those in progress on the Web in case they might help someone. A chapter that’s “in review” is complete and being reviewed by a subject matter expert. The links are PDF files.

Concept for cover design, with printed-circuit like tracing, title, and author.
