Book Description

Information Technology: An Introduction for Today’s Digital World (PDF) introduces undergraduate students to a wide variety of concepts they will encounter throughout their IT careers and studies. The ebook covers computer organization and hardware; regular expressions; Linux and Windows operating systems; the Bash shell in Linux; system administration duties; computer networks; scripting; binary numbers; DOS; managing processes and services; and computer security. It also gives college students insight on IT-related careers; such as network and web administration; web development; computer forensics; and software engineering.

Suitable for any introductory IT course; this classroom-tested etextbook presents many of the topics recommended by the ACM Special Interest Group on IT Education (SIGITE). It offers a far more detailed examination of the computer than current computer literacy textbooks; focusing on concepts essential to all IT professionals — from hardware and operating systems to information security and computer ethics. The ebook highlights Windows/DOS and Linux with numerous examples of issuing commands and controlling the operating systems. It also provides details on programming; hardware; and computer networks.
