In Detail

Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. It is a statically typed language with syntax loosely derived from that of C, adding garbage collection, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library.

This course starts with a walkthrough of the topics most critical to anyone building a new web application. Whether it’s keeping your application secure, connecting to your database, enabling token-based authentication, or utilizing logic-less templates, this course has you covered.

Scale, performance, and high availability lie at the heart of the projects, and the lessons learned throughout this course will arm you with everything you need to build world-class solutions. It will also take you through the history of concurrency, how Go utilizes it, how Go differs from other languages, and the features and structures of Go’s concurrency core. It will make you feel comfortable designing a safe, data-consistent, and high-performance concurrent application in Go.

This course is an invaluable resource to help you understand Go’s powerful features to build simple, reliable, secure, and efficient web applications.

Style and approach

This course is a step-by-step guide, which starts off with the basics of go programming to build web applications and will gradually move on to cover intermediate and advanced topics. You will be going through this smooth transition by building interesting projects along with the authors, discussing significant options, and decisions at each stage, while keeping the programs lean, uncluttered, and as simple as possible.

Angular 4: From Theory To Practice: Build the web applications of tomorrow using the new Angular web framework from Google.


*Updated to Angular v4 released on March 2017*

After reading this book, you are going to be able to:-

– Understand the latest features of ES6 JavaScript and TypeScript.
– Build an Angular 2 application from scratch using TypeScript and the Angular command line interface.
– Write code using the paradigm of reactive programming with RxJS and Observables.
– Know how to Unit Test Angular 2 using Jasmine, Karma and the Angular Test Bed

The first chapter in the course is a quickstart where you dive straight into writing your first Angular 2 application. We use the web editor plunker so you can get stuck in writing code ASAP.

In this quickstart you’ll get a 50,000 foot view of the major features of Angular 2.

Then chapter by chapter we go much deeper into each of these features. I’ll cover the theory for that feature, using plunker as much as possible so you can try out the code yourself in a browser. Then you’ll practice what you’ve learnt with either an online quiz or a set of flash cards.

You are going to learn all about:-

– Typescript & ES6 Javascript.
– Components & Binding
– Directives
– Dependancy Injection & Services
– Angular Modules & Bootstrapping your Angular application.
– SPAs & Routing
– Angular CLI
– Forms
– Reactive Programming with RXJs
– HTTP
– Unit Testing

The ideal student is an existing web developer, with some JavaScript knowledge that wants to add Angular 2 to their skill set. Or perhaps you are an existing Angular 1 developer who wants to level up to Angular 2.

You do need to be comfortable with at least the ES5 version of JavaScript. We’ll be using a UI framework called twitter bootstrap throughout the course but you still must know HTML and some CSS.

Computer Vision: Theory and Industrial Applications


This book is the fruit of a very long and elaborate process. It was conceived as a comprehensive solution to several deficiencies encountered while trying to teach the essentials of Computer Vision in different contexts: to technicians from industry looking for technological solutions to some of their problems, to students in search of a good subject for a PhD thesis, and to researchers in other fields who believe that Computer Vision techniques may help them to analyse their results. The book was carefully planned with all these people in mind. Thus, it covers the fundamentals of both 2D and 3D Computer Vision and their most widespread industrial applications, such as automated inspection, robot guidance and workpiece acquisition. The level of explanation is that of an expanded introductory text, in the sense that, besides the basic material, some special advanced topics are included in each chapter, together with an extensive bibliography for experts to follow up. Well-known researchers on each of the topics were appointed to write a chapter following several guidelines to ensure a consistent presentation throughout. I would like to thank the authors for their patience, because some of them had to go through several revisions of their chapters in order to avoid repetition and to improve the homogeneity and coherence of the book. I hope they will find that the final result has been worth their efforts.

Data Binding with Windows Forms 2.0: Programming Smart Client Data Applications with .NET


“Brian Noyes’ writing style easily captures your attention as he elaborates on all aspects of data binding in his book. He has a refreshingly clear and crisp delivery as he starts each chapter with a simple tour of each topic, and then leads you into practical concerns for sound practices and extensibility opportunities. Most importantly, as Brian explains approaches to data-binding architecture, patterns of usage, the value of data sets, binding controls and the rest, he always describes how he reaches his recommendations on the topic. This book is perfect for newcomers to .NET 2.0, but also for those that have some experience. Anyone who cares about data in their applications (okay, that should be almost everyone) is guaranteed to learn something new and useful by reading Brian’s book.”
—Michele Leroux Bustamante, IDesign chief architect, Microsoft regional director, and MVP

“Brian has saved me a lot of time. I’m writing The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Visual Studio and SQL Server 2005 (7th Edition) and I’m not going to have to cover data binding nearly as deeply because Brian has done it for me. His book gets right to the meat of the subject and makes data binding look easy. I was also pleased to see that the book focuses on the misunderstood and under-applied Windows Forms architecture. It’s a must-read for anyone trying to make their application more interactive and to leverage the new Visual Studio 2005 technology. I’m planning to point my readers to this resource when they need an in-depth treatment of data binding.”
—William Vaughn, president, Beta V Corporation

“Data binding has finally come of age in Windows applications. Back in the Visual Studio 6.0 days, I ignored data binding completely and wrote my own repetitive code to encapsulate my business logic. With Visual Studio 2005, we finally have a robust and compelling data-binding technology. To ignore it today would make you inefficient and put you behind the curve. Brian delivers a clear and concise discussion of a core topic of development for Windows today. A combination of an easy-to-follow conversational yet technical tone, excellent examples, and solid explanations make this a must-read for any developer writing for Windows or learning to write for Windows.”
—Stephen Forte, chief technical officer, Corzen Inc.

“This book provides a clear, readable, and in-depth treatment of data binding, with detailed discussions of best practices in the presentation and use of data. Brian communicates his knowledge on the mechanics of data binding to give the low-level understanding that makes all the difference when building sophisticated applications and troubleshooting difficult problems. Effective data binding can enormously reduce the amount of code in your applications and will allow new levels of sophistication in your development. Read this book.”
—Jonathan Cogley, chief executive officer, Thycotic, ASPInsider, and C# MVP

“The .NET Framework 2.0, Visual Studio .NET 2005, and Windows Forms 2.0 incorporate the most powerful data-binding platform yet, and absolutely need a book like this to expose it. Brian’s extensive data-binding knowledge and experience shine through as he comprehensively explores its many facets, starting with the fundamentals before tackling a wide variety of real-world scenarios. I’ve always thought a data-binding book was necessary, and I’m glad Brian found the time to write his.”
—Michael Weinhardt, freelance author and application developer

Data Binding with Windows Forms 2.0 earns a gold star and a prized place in my development book library. Brian is an exceptional teacher of technology, best practices, and technique. He continues to educate at every presentation I attend; his book carries that quality to paper. I found this book to be highly informative and full of all the important steps and examples necessary to learn this technology. In this book, Brian demonstrates a firm grasp on the concepts and I really enjoy his efforts to promote best practices at every chance. Definitively a cover-to-cover read.”
—Randy Hayes, president, Expert Network Solutions, Inc.

“Brian’s direct and well-organized presentation makes this much misunderstood topic finally understandable.”
—Sahil Malik, author of Pro ADO.NET 2.0 and C# MVP

Data binding is the most important part of many business applications—and one of the most difficult things to understand. Data Binding with Windows Forms 2.0 is the first book to focus on this crucial area of development. It will quickly get you up to speed on binding data sources to Windows Forms components. The book contains clear examples in C# that work with SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005. Visual Basic .NET examples are available on the book’s Web site.

Brian Noyes, leading consultant and speaker on .NET programming, teaches you both the theory and practice of data binding and provides numerous samples ready to run in Visual Studio 2005.

From his in-depth coverage, you’ll learn how to

  • Use Visual Studio 2005 to generate a data-bound application from a database

As a technology enthusiast I write on a variety of new technologies, but writing books on Oracle Application Express is my passion. The blood pumping comments I get from my readers on Amazon (and in my inbox) are the main forces that motivate me to write a book whenever a new version of Oracle APEX is launched. This is my fifth book on Oracle APEX (and the best so far) written after discovering the latest 5.1 version. As usual, I’m sharing my personal learning experience through this book to expose this unique rapid web application development platform.

In Oracle Application Express you can build robust web applications. The new version is launched with some more prolific tools to maximize developers’ productivity. Once again, I’ve left out the boring bits and have adopted the same practical inspirational approach that has exposed the anatomy of Oracle Application Express to thousands of beginners in the past.

The most convincing way to explore a technology is to apply it to a real world problem. In this book, you’ll develop a sales web application that not only reveals the anatomy of Oracle Application Express, but at the same time provides hands-on techniques that build a solid foundation for you to become a web developer.

Since there are lots of changes in the new version, all content has been revised to slot in these changes, including the features new to version 5.1. The short list below summarizes the features of Oracle APEX 5.1 covered in this book:

  • Hands-on exposure to the new features, such as Interactive Grid, Oracle JET Charts, the new declarative Master-Detail-Detail capabilities, dozens of new properties, and new development procedures

They walk through Go-based, cloud-native techniques for request routing, RESTful service creation, Event Sourcing and CQRS, securing services, OAuth2 authentication, and much more.

 

You’ll find practical techniques for working with web sockets at scale in the cloud, developing reactive UIs, making the most of concurrency, and integrating database access. At each appropriate stopping point,Hoffman and Nemeth show you how to go from git commit to a continuous delivery pipeline with tools like Wercker, Docker, and Dockerhub, automatically pushing your apps to platform providers like Cloud Foundry/Pivotal Web Services, watching them run there, and assessing their ability to dynamically scale, support failover, fault tolerance, and monitoring.

 

With cloud-native development rapidly accelerating in importance, these are skills you need now – and no other book brings them together like this. By the time you’re finished, you’ll be ready to build cloud-native apps that dynamically scale to handle virtually any volume of data, traffic, or users.
