A computer can be viewed from many different levels, and used for many different functions, such as the creation of new application software. However, an actual computer works at an even lower level than this. Introduction to 80x86 Assembly Language and Computer Architecture divides its emphasis between the assembly-language/machine-language level of computer operations and the architectural level, that is, the level defined by the machine instructions that the processor can execute. Although the primary architecture covered is the Intel 80x86 family, each chapter does include information about other architectures, or computer levels. Programmers are expected to program effectively at any level, therefore, Introduction to 80x86 Assembly Language and Computer Architecture is essential to the fundamental principles at the machine level that they will have to understand. Programming in assembly language and studying related concepts in Introduction to 80x86 Assembly Language and Computer Architecture prepares the student to program effectively in any programming language, to pursue advanced studies in computer design and architecture, and to learn more about system detail for specific computers.

Guide to RISC Processors: for Programmers and Engineers Popular processor designs can be broadly divided into two categories: Complex Instruction
Set Computers (CISC) and Reduced Instruction Set Computers (RISC). The dominant
processor in the PC market, Pentium, belongs to the CISC category. However, the recent
trend is to use the RISC designs. Even Intel has moved from CISC to RISC...
NetSuite OneWorld Implementation 2011 R2
When I first heard of NetLedger in an internal Oracle e-mail around the turn of the
century, it was one of those 'aha' moments that we all have in life. There was, at this
time, a fledgling industry of Application Service Providers (ASPs), who offered to
host enterprise software at a data center. But I was skeptical, since I...
