The Little Book of Semaphores, with stylistic changes

31 Jan 2014

So the other day I came across The Little Book of Semaphores – written by Allen B. Downey, a University teacher who aims to have practical books for CS students to read.

Besides the ebook itself, he has also published its LaTeX sources, which is very cool. I have played around with it and changed a few things, namely added the microtype package and a KOMA-class to have european paging – then I did some reorderings and so forth (changed font and a few more things).

So it’s there with the accompagnating sources, in compliance with the GNU FDL.

Really cool book by the way, I’ve been able to get all the concepts I have read so far without having any significant academical CS background so I think it reaches its goal!
