Tidy Modeling with R
Get going with tidymodels, a collection of R packages for modeling and machine learning. Whether you're just starting out or have years of experience with modeling, this practical introduction shows data analysts, business analysts, and data scientists how the tidymodels framework offers a consistent, flexible approach for your work.
RStudio engineers Max Kuhn and Julia Silge demonstrate ways to create models by focusing on an R dialect called the tidyverse. Software that adopts tidyverse principles shares both a high-level design philosophy and low-level grammar and data structures, so learning one piece of the ecosystem makes it easier to learn the next. You'll understand why the tidymodels framework has been built to be used by a broad range of people.
With this book, you will: Learn the steps necessary to build a model from beginning to end; Understand how to use different modeling and feature engineering approaches fluently; Examine the options for avoiding com ...
The Kubernetes Operator Framework Book
From incomplete collections of knowledge and varying design approaches to technical knowledge barriers, Kubernetes users face various challenges when developing their own operators. Knowing how to write, deploy, and pack operators makes cluster management automation much easier - and that's what this book is here to teach you.
Beginning with operators and Operator Framework fundamentals, the book delves into how the different components of Operator Framework (such as the Operator SDK, Operator Lifecycle Manager, and OperatorHub.io) are used to build operators. You'll learn how to write a basic operator, interact with a Kubernetes cluster in code, and distribute that operator to users. As you advance, you'll be able to develop a sample operator in the Go programming language using Operator SDK tools before running it locally with Operator Lifecycle Manager, and also learn how to package an operator bundle for distribution. The book covers best practices as well as sampl ...

Introducing Microsoft Orleans
Welcome to Orleans, a virtual actor framework from Microsoft that allows a single developer to create immensely scalable, available applications while maintaining a high throughput. This guide is designed to give you a foundational understanding of Orleans, an overview of its implementations, and plenty of hands-on coding experience. Side-by-side monolithic and microservice patterns alongside Orleans' framework features are also discussed, to help readers without an actor model background understand how they can enhance applications.
Author Nelson's approach is to introduce patterns as needed for business requirements, including monolithic microservices and to convert monolithic to microservices, in order to keep a microservice from growing into a monolithic application. Orleans is a good choice for either of these scenarios as the next step to build your backend services and reduce unnecessary orchestration, overhead, and tooling.
The Orleans framework was d ...
Practical Svelte is an excellent resource for getting acquainted with creating and manipulating websites or online applications using a component framework approach. It takes the view that we don't have to create something complex and unwieldy. We can build something quickly, using less code than some of its competitors, and extend it using the power of the API and plugins over time, without sacrificing speed or features.
You will learn how to use the Svelte framework to rapidly create and deploy websites or online app ...
