"Brian Kernighan and Rob Pike have written The Practice of Programming to help make individual programmers more effective and productive." "The practice of programming is more than just writing code. Programmers must also assess tradeoffs, choose among design alternatives, debug and test, improve performance, and maintain software written by themselves and others. At the same time, they must be concerned with issues like compatibility, robustness, and reliability, while meeting specifications." "The Practice of Programming covers all these topics, and more. This book is full of practical advice and real-world examples in C, C++, Java, and a variety of special-purpose languages."--Jacket
Understanding the digital world : what you need to know about computers, the Internet, privacy, and security by Brian W Kernighan( Book )

14 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computers are everywhere. Some of them are highly visible, in laptops, tablets, cell phones, and smart watches. But most are invisible, like those in appliances, cars, medical equipment, transportation systems, power grids, and weapons. We never see the myriad computers that quietly collect, share, and sometimes leak vast amounts of personal data about us. Through computers, governments and companies increasingly monitor what we do. Social networks and advertisers know far more about us than we should be comfortable with, using information we freely give them. Criminals have all-too-easy access to our data. Do we truly understand the power of computers in our world? Based on the author's Princeton course Computers in Our World, this book is intended as a compact but detailed and thorough explanation of how computers and communications systems work, for non-technical readers. It explains how today's computing and communications world operates, from hardware through software to the Internet and the web, also addressing the social, political and legal issues that new technology creates

The Go programming language by Alan A. A Donovan( Book )

19 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Korean and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Go may be our generation's most important new programming language. It is exceptionally expressive, highly efficient in both compilation and execution, and enables the development of extremely reliable and robust programs. It shares the same spirit programmers once found in C: it helps serious professional programmers achieve maximum effect with minimum means. Now, Go shares something else with C, too. Brian Kernighan, who wrote the world's most respected and useful C primer for working programmers, has just done the same for Go. Together with Google Go insider Alan Donovan, Kernighan explains what Go does and doesn't borrow from C ... the great ideas it borrows from other modern languages ... and how it avoids features that lead to unnecessary complexity and unreliable code. Throughout, their short, carefully-crafted code examples demonstrate today's most effective Go idioms, so you can start using Go effectively right from the beginning, and quickly take advantage of its full power. All code has been extensively reviewed by Go's creators at Google for both completeness and accuracy

"Conçu à l'origine comme le langage des systèmes d'exploitation Unix, le langage C s'est répandu bien au-delà de cette fonction et continue à se diffuser. L'ouvrage de Brian W. Kernighan et de Dennis M. Ritchie, qui sont les principaux créateurs du C, a été traduit en quinze langues. Connu sous l'abréviation K & R, il constitue "la référence" pour tout utilisateur de ce langage. Le but de ce livre est de vous apprendre à programmer en C. Il est construit en huit chapitres qui présentent successivement tous les concepts fondamentaux du langage C (les types, les opérateurs, les structures de contrôle, les pointeurs, les structures, les entrées-sorties ...). L'annexe A est un manuel de référence qui a été conçu à l'intention des programmeurs. L'annexe B est un résumé des possibilités qu'offre la bibliothèque standard." (4ème de couv.)
