Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

It's a fact: if you know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you already have the tools you need to develop your own iPhone apps. With this book, you'll learn how to use these open source web technologies to design and build apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch on the platform of your choice-without using Objective-C or Cocoa. Device-agnostic mobile apps are the wave of the future, and this book shows you how to create one product for several platforms. You'll find guidelines for converting your product into a native iPhone app using the free PhoneGap framework. And you'll learn why releasing your product as a web app first helps you find, fix, and test bugs much faster than if you went straight to the App Store with a product built with Apple's tools. Build iPhone apps with tools you already know how to use; Learn how to make an existing website look and behave like an iPhone app; Add native-looking animations to your web app using jQTouch; Take advantage of client-side data storage with a ...
Modern Web Development on the JAMstack
Modern Web Development on the JAMstack

Learn how to run your web projects - everything from simple sites to complex applications - without a single server. It's possible with the JAMstack, a modern web development architecture for deploying fast, highly-scalable sites and applications that don't require traditional origin infrastructure. This practical report explains how the JAMstack delivers better performance, higher security, and lower cost of scaling than server-run web apps. Based on client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup, the JAMstack sits at the center of several converging trends and technologies already being used to support today's web projects. Authors Mathias Biilmann and Phil Hawksworth from Netlify demonstrate how the JAMstack drastically improves performance, increases reliability, and reduces the surface for attacks. ...
Deep Learning for Coders with fastai and PyTorch
Deep Learning for Coders with fastai and PyTorch

Deep learning is often viewed as the exclusive domain of math PhDs and big tech companies. But as this hands-on guide demonstrates, programmers comfortable with Python can achieve impressive results in deep learning with little math background, small amounts of data, and minimal code. How? With fastai, the first library to provide a consistent interface to the most frequently used deep learning applications. Authors Jeremy Howard and Sylvain Gugger, the creators of fastai, show you how to train a model on a wide range of tasks using fastai and PyTorch. You'll also dive progressively further into deep learning theory to gain a complete understanding of the algorithms behind the scenes. ...
Articulating Design Decisions, 2nd Edition
Articulating Design Decisions, 2nd Edition

Talking to people about your designs might seem like a basic skill, but it can be difficult to do well. In many cases, how you communicate with stakeholders, clients, and other nondesigners may be more important than the designs themselves. Because if you can't get their support, your work will never see the light of day - no matter how good it is. This practical guide focuses on principles, tactics, and actionable methods for presenting your designs. Whether you design apps, websites, or products, you'll learn how to get support from people who have influence over the project with the goal of creating the best user experience. ...
Data Management at Scale
Data Management at Scale

As data management and integration continue to evolve rapidly, storing all your data in one place, such as a data warehouse, is no longer scalable. In the very near future, data will need to be distributed and available for several technological solutions. With this practical book, you'll learnhow to migrate your enterprise from a complex and tightly coupled data landscape to a more flexible architecture ready for the modern world of data consumption. Executives, data architects, analytics teams, and compliance and governance staff will learn how to build a modern scalable data landscape using the Scaled Architecture, which you can introduce incrementally without a large upfront investment. Author Piethein Strengholt provides blueprints, principles, observations, best practices, and patterns to get you up to speed. ...
Implementing Service Level Objectives
Implementing Service Level Objectives

Although service-level objectives (SLOs) continue to grow in importance, there's a distinct lack of information about how to implement them. Practical advice that does exist usually assumes that your team already has the infrastructure, tooling, and culture in place. In this book, recognized SLO expert Alex Hidalgo explains how to build an SLO culture from the ground up. Ideal as a primer and daily reference for anyone creating both the culture and tooling necessary for SLO-based approaches to reliability, this guide provides detailed analysis of advanced SLO and service-level indicator (SLI) techniques. Armed with mathematical models and statistical knowledge to help you get the most out of an SLO-based approach, you'll learn how to build systems capable of measuring meaningful SLIs with buy-in across all departments of your organization. ...
Semantic Modeling for Data
Semantic Modeling for Data

What value does semantic data modeling offer? As an information architect or data science professional, let's say you have an abundance of the right data and the technology to extract business gold - but you still fail. The reason? Bad data semantics. In this practical and comprehensive field guide, author Panos Alexopoulos takes you on an eye-opening journey through semantic data modeling as applied in the real world. You'll learn how to master this craft to increase the usability and value of your data and applications. You'll also explore the pitfalls to avoid and dilemmas to overcome for building high-quality and valuable semantic representations of data. ...
Learning Dapr
Learning Dapr

Get the authoritative guide to Dapr, the distributed application runtime that works with new and existing programming languages alike. Written by the model's creators, this introduction shows you how Dapr not only unifies stateless, stateful, and actor programming models but also runs everywhere - in the cloud or on the edge. Authors Haishi Bai and Yaron Schneider, both with Microsoft's Azure CTO team, explain that, with Dapr, you don't need to include any SDKs or libraries in your user code. Instead, you automatically get flexible binding, state management, the actor pattern, pub-sub, reliable messaging, and many more features. This book shows developers, architects, CIOs, students, and computing enthusiasts how to get started with Dapr. ...
