It requires three to five times less time than developing in Java, is a great building block for learning both procedural and object-oriented programming concepts, and is an ideal language for data analysis. Beginning Programming with Python For Dummies is the perfect guide to this dynamic and powerful programming language - even if you've never coded before! Author John Paul Mueller draws on his vast programming knowledge and experience to guide you step-by-step through the syntax and logic of programming with Python and provides several real-world programming examples to give you hands-on experience trying out what you've learned. ...
||Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming|
Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming shows the fundamentals of x86 assembly language programming. It focuses on the aspects of the x86 instruction set that are most relevant to application software development. The book's structure and sample code are designed to help the reader quickly understand x86 assembly language programming and the computational capabilities of the x86 platform.
The primary audience for the book is Windows software developers since the sample code will be created using Visual C++ and Microsoft Macro Assembler. Developers targeting non- Windows platforms, however, also can learn from the book since most of the content will be organized and communicated independent of any specific operating system. In order to understand the book's subject material, a background that includes some programming experience using C or C++ will be helpful. Experience with or knowledge of a particular Windows API will not be a prerequisite to benefit from the ...
||Thinking in LINQ|
LINQ represents a paradigm shift for developers used to an imperative / object oriented programming style, because LINQ draws on functional programming principles.
Using the familiar "recipes" approach, Thinking in LINQ shows you how to approach building LINQ-based solutions, how such solutions are different from what you already know, and why they're better. The recipes cover a wide range of real-world problems, from using LINQ to replace existing loops, to writing your own Swype-like keyboard entry routines, to finding duplicate files on your hard drive. The goal of these recipes is to get you "thinking in LINQ," so you can use the techniques in your own code to write more efficient and concise data-intensive applications. ...
