How to Count

Unlike most programming books which aim to teach you a particular language or operating system, this series focuses on the core fundamentals that are common to programming any computer.

In a laid-back, conversational tone, "How to Count" introduces you to math topics that are essential to becoming a successful programmer, including:

- Numeric bases (decimal, binary, hexadecimal)
- Signed vs. unsigned numbers
- Floating point and fixed point arithmetic

This short, easily understood book will quickly get you thinking like a programmer.

Steven Frank has been a professional programmer since 1994, and co-founded the well-known Mac software company Panic, Inc.
