||Practical Python AI Projects|
Discover the art and science of solving artificial intelligence problems with Python using optimization modeling. This book covers the practical creation and analysis of mathematical algebraic models such as linear continuous models, non-obviously linear continuous models, and pure linear integer models. Rather than focus on theory, Practical Python AI Projects, the product of the author's decades of industry teaching and consulting, stresses the model creation aspect; contrasting alternate approaches and practical variations.
Each model is explained thoroughly and written to be executed. The source code from all examples in the book is available, written in Python using Google OR-Tools. It also includes a random problem generator, useful for industry application or study.

||The Arduino Inventor's Guide|
The Arduino microcontroller makes it easy to learn about electronics, but it can be hard to know where to start. The 10 projects in this book will teach you to build, code, and invent with the super-smart Arduino and a handful of parts.
First, you'll master the basics with a primer that explains how a circuit works, how to read a wiring schematic, and how to build and test projects with a solderless breadboard. Then you'll learn how to make your hardware move, buzz, flash, and interact with the world using motors, LEDs, sensors, and more as you build these 10 projects:The classic first Arduino project: blinking an LED;A miniature traffic light;An LED screen that displays animated patterns and shapes;A fast-paced button-smashing game to test your reflexes;A light-sensitive, color-changing night-light;A challenging ball-balancing game;A temperature-sensing mini greenhouse with an automated fan and vent;A motorized ...
You've mastered the basics, conquered the soldering iron, and programmed a robot or two; now you've got a set of skills and tools to take your Arduino exploits further. But what do you do once you've exhausted your to-build list?
Arduino Playground will show you how to keep your hardware hands busy with a variety of intermediate builds, both practical and just-for-fun. Advance your engineering and electronics know-how as you work your way through these 10 complex projects:A reaction-time game that leverages the Arduino's real-time capabilities;A tool for etching your own printed circuit boards;A regulated, variable-voltage power supply;A kinetic wristwatch winder decked out with LEDs;A garage parking assistant that blinks when your vehicle is perfectly parked;A practical and colorful pH meter;A ballistic chronograph that can measure the muzzle velocity of BB, Airsoft, and pellet guns;A battery saver that prevents a ...
||Create Your Successful Agile Project|
You've tried to use an off-the-shelf approach to agile techniques, and it's not working. Instead of a standard method or framework, work from agile and lean principles to design your own agile approach in a way that works for you. Build collaborative, cross-functional teams. See how small batch sizes and frequent delivery create an environment of trust and transparency between the team, management, and customers. Learn about the interpersonal skills that help agile teams work together so well.
In addition to seeing work and knowing what “done” means, you'll see examples of many possible team-based measurements. Look at tools you can use for status reporting, and how to use those measurements to help your managers understand what agile techniques buy them. Recognize the traps that prevent agile principles from working in too many organizations, and what to do about those traps. Use agile techniques for workgroups, and see what managers can do to create and nurture an agile cultur ...
