Hacking APIs
Hacking APIs

An Application Programming Interface (API) is a software connection that allows applications to communicate and share services. Hacking APIs will teach you how to test web APIs for security vulnerabilities. You'll learn how the common API types, REST, SOAP, and GraphQL, work in the wild. Then you'll set up a streamlined API testing lab and perform common attacks, like those targeting an API's authentication mechanisms, and the injection vulnerabilities commonly found in web applications. In the book's guided labs, which target intentionally vulnerable APIs. By the end of the book, you'll be prepared to uncover those high-payout API bugs that other hackers aren't finding, and improve the security of applications on the web. ...
An Artist's Guide to Programming
An Artist's Guide to Programming

An Artist's Guide to Programming teaches computer programming with the aid of 100 example programs, each of which integrates graphical or sound output. The Processing-language-based examples range from drawing a circle and animating bouncing balls to 3D graphics, audio visualization, and interactive games. Readers learn core programming concepts like conditions, loops, arrays, strings and functions, as well as how to use Processing to draw lines, shapes, and 3D objects. They'll learn key computer graphics concepts like manipulating images, animating text, mapping textures onto objects, and working with video. Advanced examples include sound effects and audio visualization, network communication, 3D geometry and animation, simulations of snow and smoke, predator-prey populations, and interactive games. ...
Bare Metal C
Bare Metal C

Bare Metal C will teach you how to program embedded devices with the C programming language. For embedded system programmers who want precise and complete control over the system they are using, this book pulls back the curtain on what the compiler is doing for you so that you can see all the details of what's happening with your program. The first part of the book teaches C basics with the aid of a low-cost, widely available bare metal system (the Nucleo Arm evaluation system), which gives you all the tools needed to perform basic embedded programming. As you progress through the book you'll learn how to integrate serial input/output (I/O) and interrupts into your programs. You'll also learn what the C compiler and linker do behind the scenes, so that you'll be better able to write more efficient programs that maximize limited memory. Finally, you'll learn how to use more complex, memory hungry C features like dynamic memory, file I/O, and floating-point numbers. ...
Programming WebRTC
Programming WebRTC

Build your own video chat application - but that's just the beginning. With WebRTC, you'll create real-time applications to stream any kind of user media and data directly from one browser to another, all built on familiar HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Power real-time activities like text-based chats, secure peer-to-peer file transfers, collaborative brainstorming sessions - even multiplayer gaming. And you're not limited to two connected users: an entire chapter of the book is devoted to engineering multipeer WebRTC apps that let groups of people communicate in real time. You'll create your own video conferencing app. It's all here. WebRTC is an API exposed in all modern web browsers. After almost a decade of development, the WebRTC specification was finalized, and this book provides faithful coverage of that finalized specification. You'll start by building a basic but complete WebRTC application for video chatting. Chapter by chapter, you'll refine that app and its core logic to spi ...

SQL Antipatterns, Volume 1
SQL Antipatterns, Volume 1

SQL is the ubiquitous language for software developers working with structured data. Most developers who rely on SQL are experts in their favorite language (such as Java, Python, or Go), but they're not experts in SQL. They often depend on antipatterns - -solutions that look right but become increasingly painful to work with as you uncover their hidden costs. Learn to identify and avoid many of these common blunders. Refactor an inherited nightmare into a data model that really works. Updated for the current versions of MySQL and Python, this new edition adds a dozen brand new mini-antipatterns for quick wins. No matter which platform, framework, or language you use, the database is the foundation of your application, and the SQL database language is the standard for working with it. Antipatterns are solutions that look simple at the surface, but soon mire you down with needless work. Learn to identify these traps, and craft better solutions for the often-asked questions in this bo ...
