Foundations of Scalable Systems
Foundations of Scalable Systems

In many systems, scalability becomes the primary driver as the user base grows. Attractive features and high utility breed success, which brings more requests to handle and more data to manage. But organizations reach a tipping point when design decisions that made sense under light loads suddenly become technical debt. This practical book covers design approaches and technologies that make it possible to scale an application quickly and cost-effectively. Author Ian Gorton takes software architects and developers through the principles of foundational distributed systems. You'll explore the essential ingredients of scalable solutions, including replication, state management, load balancing, and caching. Specific chapters focus on the implications of scalability for databases, microservices, and event-based streaming systems. You will focus on: Foundations of scalable systems: Learn basic design principles of scalability, its costs, and architectural tradeoff ...
API Marketplace Engineering
API Marketplace Engineering

This is your hands-on guide to designing, building, and operating an API Marketplace to allow your organization to expose internal services and customer data securely for use by external developers.

Introduction to Game Design, Prototyping, and Development, 3rd Edition
Introduction to Game Design, Prototyping, and Development, 3rd Edition

A hands-on book that explains concepts "by doing," Introduction to Game Design Prototyping, and Development, 3rd Edition, takes readers through the process of making both paper and digital game prototypes. Rather than focusing on a single tutorial, as most Unity books have done, this book explores several small prototypes, reinforcing critical concepts through repetition from project to project. Author Jeremy Gibson Bond's approach creates a stable of "base projects" that serve as starters for readers looking to create their own games), while skipping the aspects of project creation (e.g. modeling, animation, etc.) that are less central to this book. Intermediate readers may browse this book for a tutorial that clarifies the specific prototyping or programming concept that they wish to learn. This book begins with an introduction to general game design concepts and basic programing concepts. C# is the chosen language used in this book, and it is easy to learn and enfor ...
