Understating your computing platform and the interaction of various components in it.

Working of computer platform

When most programmers think about development tools, they immediately think about the programming language. That’s only half the picture. The language is part of a larger computing platform. In the old days when computers were programmed only in assembly language; each type of computer had its own instruction set, so depending on our application, some computers could offer better instructions than others.

The same is true for today. For example Java, it’s not just a programming language; it’s a language and a set of standard libraries and a virtual machine to deploy our application on.
