Try to keep that in mind as you progress through the information in this book. Each chapter’s opening page reminds you of where we are in the various layers of a computing system. The details all contribute a specific part to a larger whole. 1 Computing Systems 7 each step in turn and you will be amazed at how well it all falls into place. Abstraction The levels of a computing system that we just examined are examples of abstraction. An abstraction is a mental model, a way to think about something, which removes or hides complex details.

1977. “I predict the Internet . . ”—Bob Metcalfe, 3Com founder and inventor, 1995. 3 Computing as a Tool and a Discipline In the previous section on the history of computer software, we pointed out the ever-changing role of the user. At the end of the first generation, the user split into two groups: the systems programmer who developed tools to make programming easier and the applications programmer who used the tools. Later applications programmers built large domain-specific programs such as statistical packages, word processors, spreadsheets, intelligent browsers, virtual environments, and medical diagnosis applications on top of the traditional language tools.

Dr. Hollerith later formed a company that is known today as IBM. In 1936 a theoretical development took place that had nothing to do with hardware per se but profoundly influenced the field of Computer Science. Alan M. Turing, another British mathematician, invented an abstract mathematical model called a Turing machine, laying the foundation for a major area of computing theory. The most prestigious award given in Computer Science (equivalent to the Fielding Medal in Mathematics or a Nobel Prize in other sciences) is the Turing Award, named for Alan Turing.
