As the field of computing grows and evolves, it has become increasingly important to develop quality textbooks for students. This series covers traditional areas of computing, as well as related technical areas, such as software engineering, artificial intelligence, computer engineering, information systems, and information technology. The series will accommodate textbooks for undergraduate and graduate students, generally adhering to worldwide curriculum standards from professional societies.
The editors wish to encourage new and imaginative ideas and proposals, and are keen to help and encourage new authors. They are very conscious of the need to reform and revitalize the way in which computing is taught and are eager to provide a vehicle for novel ideas. The editors welcome proposals that:
A Functional Start to Computing with Python
The Tao of Computing
