Aprender cómo funcionan los sistemas computacionales desde la perspectiva de un programador es muy divertido, principalmente porque puedes hacerlo de forma activa. Siempre que aprendes algo nuevo, puedes probarlo de inmediato y ver el resultado de primera mano. De hecho, creemos que la única manera de aprender sistemas es hacer sistemas, ya sea trabajando en problemas concretos o escribiendo y ejecutando programas en sistemas reales.
