The upside is that I basically walked into the job since the I've
known the guy hiring for years through IBM, and all the infrastructure
is based on F/OSS and all the automation that is written and in
progress is python. I don't really remember much python, but I can
read it, so this will also give me a chance to brush up on that and,
for the first time since getting a degree in programming, actually do
But I did want to ask you guys for book suggestions. .. What I'd like
to find, so I can do some brushing up on the hardware side, is a good
"Intro to Hardware" kind of book, BUT I have requirements.
First, I'm trying to find something that's not BSEE level stuff that
I'll just end up getting frustrated with.
Second, I'm also NOT trying to find Hardware for Dummies. I'm trying
to find something between the two, more like System Architecture for
System Administrators or something.
I don't care about the pathways embedded in the processor and the x86
instruction set in Assembly, but more an overview at a higher than
beginner technical level.
Any of you guys know of such a critter?
