IEEE Computer Society Launches Downloadable Tutorials for Software Developers, Instructors, and Students

Los Alamitos, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2005

IEEE Computer Society announces the launch of a new series of downloadable tutorials called ReadyNotes, which focus on hands-on content for software developers, IT practitioners, and instructors and their students.

IEEE Computer Society’s publishing operations has gathered recognized authorities from among its members with one goal in mind: Provide practical, accessible, affordable guidebooks that can help software developers expand their expertise into new fields and support instructors and their students by bridging the gap between theory and practice. In this continuing series of tutorials, Computer Society experts address the “hot topics” essential for developing applications in today’s—and tomorrow’s—technological environment. And because ReadyNotes are published by IEEE Computer Society, they must pass an expert peer review that ensures their quality.

“Colleagues of mine are quite taken with this ReadyNotes concept,” said Mike Williams, a long-time University of Calgary professor. “You get solid, practical instruction from well-regarded professionals, appropriate for both students and practitioners. The ReadyNotes I’ve seen are much more detailed than any standard journal article, but more immediate and focused than a book.” Williams, who will be the IEEE Computer Society’s President-Elect in 2006, recruited the volunteer team that developed ReadyNotes.

IEEE Computer Society will be releasing six ReadyNotes initially, including:

“A Survey of 3D Graphics Software Tools,” by Jim Chen

“IEEE Software Engineering Standards Support for the CMMI Project Planning Process Area,” by Kathy Land

“Designing Databases with Object Oriented Methods,” by Robert Muller

“Evaluating Performance in Software Engineering,” by Lawrence Peters

“Digital Avionics: A Computing Perspective,” by Elisabeth Strunk and John Knight

“Introduction to Python for Artificial Intelligence,” by Steve Tanimoto
