From the dots and dashes of Morse code to the 0s and 1s of computer programming, "Code" describes the ingenious ways humans have adapted language systems -- code -- to invent the machinery of the modern age. By examining the dialogues we developed for and through the communication tools of the industrial revolution, readers discover they have a context for comprehending today's world of computers, bar code scanners, and fiber optics. The work of legendary computer book author Charles Petzold has influenced an entire generation of programmers -- and with "Code", Microsoft Press is proud to bring this extraordinary writer's compelling narrative style and wit to a general audience.
