Finally! Media Computation book series done!

January 7, 2010 at 5:44 pm 2 comments

I have sitting next to me Problem Solving with Data Structures Using Java: A Multimedia Approach by Mark Guzdial and Barbara Ericson, the fourth and final Media Computation book! This joins the Python CS1 book, the Java CS1 book, and Barb’s (with Steve Cooper and Wanda Dann) Alice and Media Computation book.  I started the first Python book in 2002, so it’s been eight years to finally finish the series.  Woo hoo!  I look forward to not writing more textbooks in the forseeable future.

(BTW, yes, it’s a shockingly high price.  It was a surprise to us, too. We hope that market forces will cause that to drop.)

    Hi Mark

    Congrats! It’s just wonderful to celebrate and congratulate the successful creation of a new book!

      Thank you, Alan! We’ve been working at this book for so long (about 3 years, longest of any of the books) that it’s a great pleasure yet also anticlimactic to see it in our hands. It’s not like we haven’t seen these pages before MANY times.
