Get Ahead in Computing: Amazing Applications & Perfect Programs

Written by Clive Gifford

Part of the Get Ahead in Computing Series

Get Ahead in Computing: Amazing Applications & Perfect Programs Synopsis

Amazing Applications and Perfect Programs explores operating systems, computer programs, sorting and storing files, databases, and the programs that allow users to have fun with words, pictures and sounds. The computers that are used in schools, homes and businesses around the world rely on computer programs. Learn about the amazing variety of these programs today and how they can be used from everything from the most complicated finances to simple word processing. Exercises teach key skills such as word processing, creating documents and using databases. Stretch Yourself features give practical activities for readers to try. These 'try at home' examples help reinforce learning and are not linked to specific software or operating systems. True Story features give real-world anecdotes from the world of information technology. Computer Hero features look at the forerunners of digital technology that have paved the way for scientists today. Other titles in the Get Ahead in Computing series: Awesome Algorithms & Creative Coding, Amazing Applications & Perfect Programs, and Computer Networks.
