Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by TestsSteve Freeman & Nat Pryce
This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Test-Driven Development (TDD) is now an established technique for delivering better software faster. TDD is based on a simple idea: Write tests for your code before you write the code itself. However, this "simple" idea takes skill and judgment to do well. Now there's a practical guide to TDD that takes you beyond the basic concepts. Drawing on a decade of experience building real-world systems, two TDD pioneers show how to let tests guide your development and “grow” software that is coherent, reliable, and maintainable. Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce describe the processes they use, the design principles they strive to achieve, and some of the tools that help them get the job done. Through an extended worked example, you’ll learn how TDD works at multiple levels, using tests to drive the features and the object-oriented structure of the code, and using Mock Objects to discover and then describe relationships between objects. Along the way, the book systematically addresses challenges that development teams encounter with TDD—from integrating TDD into your processes to testing your most difficult features. Coverage includes Implementing TDD effectively: getting started, and maintaining your momentum throughout the project Creating cleaner, more expressive, more sustainable code Using tests to stay relentlessly focused on sustaining quality Understanding how TDD, Mock Objects, and Object-Oriented Design come together in the context of a real software development project Using Mock Objects to guide object-oriented designs Succeeding where TDD is difficult: managing complex test data, and testing persistence and concurrency
An Introduction to Information TheoryJohn R. Pierce
"Uncommonly good...the most satisfying discussion to be found." — Scientific American. Behind the familiar surfaces of the telephone, radio, and television lies a sophisticated and intriguing body of knowledge known as information theory. This is the theory that has permitted the rapid development of all sorts of communication, from color television to the clear transmission of photographs from the vicinity of Jupiter. Even more revolutionary progress is expected in the future. To give a solid introduction to this burgeoning field, J. R. Pierce has revised his well-received 1961 study of information theory for a second edition. Beginning with the origins of the field, Dr. Pierce follows the brilliant formulations of Claude Shannon and describes such aspects of the subject as encoding and binary digits, entropy, language and meaning, efficient encoding, and the noisy channel. He then goes beyond the strict confines of the topic to explore the ways in which information theory relates to physics, cybernetics, psychology, and art. Mathematical formulas are introduced at the appropriate points for the benefit of serious students. A glossary of terms and an appendix on mathematical notation are proved to help the less mathematically sophisticated. J. R. Pierce worked for many years at the Bell Telephone Laboratories, where he became Director of Research in Communications Principles. His Introduction to Information Theory continues to be the most impressive nontechnical account available and a fascinating introduction to the subject for lay readers.
Hacking with macOSPaul Hudson
Whether you have existing iOS skills or you're starting fresh, you can learn macOS coding by building real-world projects with Swift 5.0 and Xcode – all you need is in this course. 100% Mojave: You can always be guaranteed you're learning the latest, greatest Apple technologies because all my tutorials are written for macOS 10.14. 100% Swift 5.0: Don't waste time with out of date tutorials – here you can learn smart, powerful, and expressive Swift the way it was meant to be written. 100% Practical: You learn Swift while you make real macOS projects, which means you get to apply your new skills immediately and see them work in context. 100% Proven: I've already taught thousands of people how to build iOS apps, and now I'll help you transfer your skills to macOS and unleash the power of your desktop. If you loved Hacking with Swift, this is the sequel you've been waiting for. Hacking with macOS follows the same approach I used with Hacking with Swift: small, standalone projects that teach individual techniques starting from scratch, so you end up with a huge library of finished projects you can develop further or use as the base for something entirely new. What's in the course? Hacking with macOS teaches you Swift and macOS frameworks through real-world projects. There's a comprehensive Swift introduction for beginners, but I'm also packing the book with hints and tips that help you transfer your existing iOS skills to macOS painlessly. Hacking with macOS includes 18 projects in total: six apps, six games, and six technique projects that focus on specific macOS APIs. The projects are: 1. Storm Viewer: Get started coding in Swift by making an image viewer app and learning key concepts. 2. Cows and Bulls: Practice your NSTableView skills while learning about random numbers and text input. 3. Social media: Return to project 1 and add a feature to let users share their selected picture. 4. Grid Browser: Power up your web browsing experience by viewing more than one site at a time. 5. Capital Cities: Learn to drop map pins and measure distance in this MKMapView game. 6. Auto Layout: Make your apps adapt intelligently to any size screen – it's easier than you think! 7. Photo Memories: Create watermarked videos using NSCollectionView with drag and drop. 8. Odd One Out: Build a picture-matching game using grid view and… particle effects? 9. GCD: Learn how to create background threads, delay work, and even parallelize complex operations. 10. WeatherBar: Display your local weather in the macOS status bar using JSON and GCD. 11. Bubble Trouble: Create a physics-based bubble popping game with timers, sound effects, and more. 12. Animation: Master Core Animation by learning a variety of ways to bring your UI to life. 13. Screenable: Get to grips with Core Graphics and NSDocument by building a screenshot-editing app. 14. Shooting Gallery: Build a fast-paced shooting game with animations, new levels, and a custom mouse cursor. 15. NSUndoManager: Learn to let your apps forgive and forget user mistakes with NSUndoManager. 16. Bookworm: Track the books you've read while writing any hardly any code. No, really. 17. Match Three: Build a ball-matching game with SpriteKit, while learning about shape nodes and particle emitters. 18. Bindings: Practice your bindings skill by converting temperatures with KVC and KVO. While building projects, you'll learn all this and more: - How Cocoa on macOS differs from Cocoa Touch on iOS. - Creating advanced user interfaces with NSTableView, NSCollectionView, NSStackView, NSSplitView, and the all-new NSGridView. - How to build apps that look great in multi-window and tabbed user environments. - Designing your apps with powerful native components such as NSButton, NSTextView, NSSegmentedControl, NSImageView, and more. - Working with the filesystem, and using system services such as sharing and drag and drop. - Designing interfaces with and without storyboards, plus Auto Layout, alerts, modals, and sheets. - Handling mouse and keyboard events, animation, concurrency, and more. Will it teach me Swift? I've done my best to make sure this book is accessible to everyone: if you're just starting out I'll make sure and explain every concept, but if you're coming from iOS there are dozens of tips to help you transfer your existing skills to macOS. Hacking with macOS comes with the same packed Swift introduction you get with Hacking with Swift, but after that it turns to focus on the powerful platform features that lie at the core of macOS. I'm working hard to cover as much of AppKit as possible, to help give you the best jump start possible for your own apps. I already make iOS apps – is macOS so different? iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS have a number of similarities, not least the Swift programming language that works across all of them. This means coming to macOS from iOS already gives you a head start because many concepts will be familiar to you – delegation, KVO, notifications, and closures for example all work the same. But when it comes to user interface, macOS and iOS are worlds apart. The very nature of macOS is that it works in a multi-window environment where users can resizing apps or dock them as needed – your apps need to learn to existing alongside others, and integrate fully with the rest of the system. I make a point of highlight everywhere macOS and iOS come together so you can transfer your skills faster. This means you don't need to learn many things from scratch, and can instead focus on the parts that are different.

Amazon.com empezó vendiendo libros por correo y se enroló en la primera ola de histeria de las "punto com". Pero su visionario fundador, Jeff Bezos, no se conformó con una tienda de libros on-line. Quiso ir mucho más allá: que Amazon pudiera brindar una gama ilimitada de artículos y seducir con una oferta continuada de precios bajos, hasta llegar a convertirse en "la tienda de los sueños". Para hacer realidad su visión, desarrolló una cultura corporativa de ambición, obstinación y secretismo que nunca se ha desvelado... hasta ahora. Brad Stone, reputado periodista del Bloomberg Businessweek, ha podido acceder en exclusiva a empleados de Amazon, como antiguos trabajadores de la compañia, incluyendo a sus directivos, así como a los miembros de la familia Bezos, lo que le ha permitido, a través de más de 300 entrevistas, ofrecer a los lectores una visión profunda, de primera mano, de lo que yace tras el telón de la vida de Amazon. Incluso si se compara con otros pioneros de la tecnología, como Jobs, Gates o Zuckerberg, Bezos cuida excesivamente su intimidad mientras permanece firme en su búsqueda incansable de nuevos mercados. Así, conduce a Amazon a través de aventuras arriesgadas, como su lector Kindle o la entrada en la nube, para transformar el sector librero de la misma manera que Henry Ford revolucionó el sector de la manufactura: con un trabajo ininterrumpido al que se suma el compromiso de brindar a los clientes la mejor experiencia. Este libro es la verdadera biografía de un genio de la tecnología que constituye uno de los primeros y más grandes hitos en Internet y que ha transformado para siempre la forma de comprar y la forma de leer. Es el balance auténtico de una empresa de nuestra era y el resultado de una mirada muy personal al emprendedor que la fundó.

A Tour of C++, 2/eBjarne Stroustrup
In A Tour of C++, Second Edition, Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, describes what constitutes modern C++. This concise, self-contained guide covers most major language features and the major standard-library components—not, of course, in great depth, but to a level that gives programmers a meaningful overview of the language, some key examples, and practical help in getting started. Stroustrup presents the C++ features in the context of the programming styles they support, such as object-oriented and generic programming. His tour is remarkably comprehensive. Coverage begins with the basics, then ranges widely through more advanced topics, including many that are new in C++17, such as move semantics, uniform initialization, lambda expressions, improved containers, random numbers, and concurrency. The tour even covers some extensions being made for C++20, such as concepts and modules, and ends with a discussion of the design and evolution of C++. This guide does not aim to teach you how to program (for that, see Stroustrup's Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++, Second Edition ), nor will it be the only resource you'll need for C++ mastery (for that, see Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition, and recommended online sources). If, however, you are a C or C++ programmer wanting greater familiarity with the current C++ language, or a programmer versed in another language wishing to gain an accurate picture of the nature and benefits of modern C++, you can't find a shorter or simpler introduction than this tour provides.

Lean UXJeff Gothelf & Josh Seiden
UX design has traditionally been deliverables-based. Wireframes, site maps, flow diagrams, content inventories, taxonomies, mockups helped define the practice in its infancy. Over time, however, this deliverables-heavy process has put UX designers in the deliverables business. Many are now measured and compensated for the depth and breadth of their deliverables instead of the quality and success of the experiences they design. Designers have become documentation subject matter experts, known for the quality of the documents they create instead of the end-state experiences being designed and developed. So what's to be done? This practical book provides a roadmap and set of practices and principles that will help you keep your focus on the the experience back, rather than the deliverables. Get a tactical understanding of how to successfully integrate Lean and UX/DesignFind new material on business modeling and outcomes to help teams work more strategicallyDelve into the new chapter on experiment designTake advantage of updated examples and case studies

Burn RateMichael Wolff
From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Fire and Fury and Siege: Trump Under Fire —Michael Wolff's wickedly funny chronicle of his rags-to-riches-to-rags adventure as a fledgling Internet entrepreneur exposes an industry powered by hype, celebrity, and billions of investment dollars, and notably devoid of profit-making enterprises. As he describes his efforts to control his company's burn rate—the amount of money the company consumes in excess of its income—Wolff offers a no-holds-barred portrait of unaccountable successes and major disasters, including the story behind Wired magazine and its fanatical founder, Louis Rossetto; the rise of America Online, perhaps the most dysfunctional successful company in history, and the humiliating inability of people such as Bill Gates to untangle the intricacies of the Web.

The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Apple Watch Series 4Scott La Counte
The stage was set in September 2018. It was iPhone’s big event. The day where journalist and Apple fans alike lusted over the latest and greatest iPhone. But a funny thing happened on the way to the announcement: Apple Watch Series 4 took everyone's breath away! The Apple Watch has, of course, been around for three years and seen several updates. But 2018 was different: the watch was finally ready for the masses. This wasn’t a watch for early adopters or fitness buffs--this was the watch your parents and grandparents would get behind. In addition to all the great features Apple Watch has always had, series 4 is slimmer (yet with a screen that is somehow bigger), has optional cellular for making phone calls and streaming music without your phone, and drop detection (so if you fall and can’t get up, the fire department is dispatched to your location). Everything about it was designed to motivate you to be more active. As amazing as all the new features are, it’s not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrated initial experience. The point of this book is to help new Apple Watch users (and users updating to Watch OS 5 from an older device) get the most out their investment. Are you ready to start enjoying your new Apple Watch? Then let’s get started! Note: This book is not endorsed by Apple and should be considered unofficial.
