||Implementing Cloud Design Patterns for AWS|
Whether you are just getting your feet wet in cloud infrastructure or already creating complex systems, this book aims at describing patterns that can be used to fit your system needs.
The initial patterns will cover some basic processes such as maintaining and storing backups as well as handling redundancy. The book will then take you through patterns of high availability. Following this, the book will discuss patterns for processing static and dynamic data and patterns for uploading data. The book will then dive into patterns for databases and data processing. In the final leg of your journey, you will get to grips with advanced patterns on Operations and Networking and also get acquainted with Throw-away Environments. ...

You'll learn how to avoid pitfalls that often leave many teams struggling to maintain what they already have.
Ideal for DevOps engineers - and written to cover the upcoming Puppet 4 release - this book shows you how best to deploy Puppet with long-term maintenance and future growth in mind. This book clearly picks up where other Puppet resources leave off. ...
||SVG Colors, Patterns, and Gradients|
As a vector graphics format, SVG uses precisely-defined geometric shapes to build an image. But that doesn't mean that SVG graphics have to look like technical drawings. SVG graphics can be shaded, textured, built from partially-transparent overlapping layers, or even filled with photographic images.
SVG Colors, Patterns and Gradients takes an in-depth look at the different ways SVG text and shapes can be painted on the screen or page. You'll start with an overview of how color is defined, including the various ways you can control the transparency of SVG content. You'll then dive deep into the concept of an SVG paint server: gradients, patterns and other complex graphical content that can be used to fill-in or outline other SVG shapes and text. ...
||Advanced Analytics with Spark|
In this practical book, four Cloudera data scientists present a set of self-contained patterns for performing large-scale data analysis with Spark. The authors bring Spark, statistical methods, and real-world data sets together to teach you how to approach analytics problems by example.
You'll start with an introduction to Spark and its ecosystem, and then dive into patterns that apply common techniques - classification, collaborative filtering, and anomaly detection among others - to fields such as genomics, security, and finance. If you have an entry-level understanding of machine learning and statistics, and you program in Java, Python, or Scala, you'll find these patterns useful for working on your own data applications. ...
||Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design|
Methods for managing complex software construction following the practices, principles and patterns of Domain-Driven Design with code examples in C#
This book presents the philosophy of Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in a down-to-earth and practical manner for experienced developers building applications for complex domains. A focus is placed on the principles and practices of decomposing a complex problem space as well as the implementation patterns and best practices for shaping a maintainable solution space. You will learn how to build effective domain models through the use of tactical patterns and how to retain their integrity by applying the strategic patterns of DDD. Full end-to-end coding examples demonstrate techniques for integrating a decomposed and distributed solution space while coding best practices and patterns advise you on how to architect applications for maintenance and scale. ...
||Apache Solr Search Patterns|
Apache Solr is an open source search platform built on a Java library called Lucene. It serves as a search platform for many websites, as it has the capability of indexing and searching multiple websites to fetch desired results.
We begin with a brief introduction of analyzers and tokenizers to understand the challenges associated with implementing large-scale indexing and multilingual search functionality. We then move on to working with custom queries and understanding how filters work internally. While doing so, we also create our own query language or Solr plugin that does proximity searches. Furthermore, we discuss how Solr can be used for real-time analytics and tackle problems faced during its implementation in e-commerce search. We then dive deep into the spatial features such as indexing strategies and search/filtering strategies for a spatial search. We also do an in-depth analysis of problems faced in an ad serving platform and how Solr can be used to solve these problems ...
||Django Design Patterns and Best Practices|
Learning how to write better Django code to build more maintainable websites either takes a lot of experience or familiarity with various design patterns. Filled with several idiomatic Django patterns Django Design Patterns and Best Practices accelerates your journey into the world of web development.
Discover a set of common design problems, each tackling aspects of Django including model design and Views, and learn several recommended solutions with useful code examples and illustrations. You'll also get to grips with the current best practices in the latest versions of Django and Python. Creating a successful web application involves much more than Django, so advanced topics including REST, testing, debugging, security, and deployment are also explored in detail. ...
||Professional Java EE Design Patterns|
Professional Java EE Design Patterns is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to work more effectively with Java EE, and the only resource that covers both the theory and application of design patterns in solving real-world problems. The authors guide readers through both the fundamental and advanced features of Java EE 7, presenting patterns throughout, and demonstrating how they are used in day-to-day problem solving.
Unlike most Java EE books that simply offer descriptions or recipes, this book drives home the implementation of the pattern to real problems to ensure that the reader learns how the patterns should be used and to be aware of their pitfalls.
For the programmer looking for a comprehensive guide that is actually useful in the everyday workflow, Professional Java EE Design Patterns is the definitive resource on the market. ...
||Pro Design Patterns in Swift|
The Swift programming language has transformed the world of iOS development and started a new age of modern Cocoa development. Pro Design Patterns in Swift shows you how to harness the power and flexibility of Swift to apply the most important and enduring design patterns to your applications, taking your development projects to master level.
This book will teach you those design patterns that have always been present at some level in your code, but may not have been recognized, acknowledged, or fully utilized. Implementation of specific pattern approaches will prove their value to any Swift developer.
Best-selling author Adam Freeman explains how to get the most from design patterns. He starts with the nuts-and-bolts and shows you everything through to advanced features, going in-depth to give you the knowledge you need. ...
||RESTful Java Patterns and Best Practices|
The convergence of social networking, cloud computing, and the era of mobile applications has created a generation of emerging technologies that allow different networked devices to communicate with each other over the Internet with REST. REST has the benefits of being stateless; easing scalability, visibility, and reliability; and being platform and language agnostic.
This book is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with clear and pragmatic information to take advantage of the real power of RESTful services and gives you a good foundation for using them in your applications. By comparing APIs from platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, GitHub, and PayPal, the book teaches a range of exciting capabilities with RESTful services and explores the infinite possibilities by using the diverse building blocks and tips covered in various chapters. ...
