Computer Science from the Bottom Up
Bottom Up: From OS Fundamentals to how Applications are Complied and Executed.
Computer Science is taught from the "top down"; applications, high level programming, software design and development theory, possibly data structures. Students will probably be exposed to binary, hopefully binary logic, possibly even some low level concepts such as registers, opcodes and the like at a superficial level.
This book aims to move in completely the opposite direction, working from operating systems fundamentals through to how those applications are complied and executed.
