Summary

This revision of Schneider and Gersting's bestselling text now offers a more flexible approach to the CS0 course.

In addition to modules for C++ and Java, optional modules for C#, Python, and Ada are now available. The text also includes new chapters on Security and Entertainment, expanded coverage of wireless networks, and updated feature boxes.
