Designing for Scalability with Erlang / OTP

Design and build complex, scalable commercial-grade systems with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), the open source system developed by Ericsson and written in Erlang. With this hands-on book, you'll learn how to apply OTP libraries and techniques to develop concurrent, fault-tolerant systems with no single point of failure.

Articulating Design Decisions

Every designer has had to justify designs to non-designers, yet most lack the ability to explain themselves in a way that is compelling and fosters agreement. The ability to effectively articulate design decisions is critical to the success of a project, because the most articulate person often wins. This practical book provides principles, tactics, and actionable methods for talking about designs with executives, managers, developers, marketers, and other stakeholders who have influence over the project with the goal of winning them over and creating the best user experience.

Infrastructure as Code

This book explains how to take advantage of technologies like cloud, virtualization, and configuration automation to manage IT infrastructure using tools and practices from software development. These technologies have decoupled infrastructure from the underlying hardware, turning it into data and code. "Infrastructure as Code" has emerged alongside the DevOps movement as a label for approaches that merge concepts like source control systems, Test Driven Development (TDD) and Continuous Integration (CI) with infrastructure management.

Mapping Experiences

If you want to create products and services that provide real value, you should first identify touchpoints areas where business and customer needs intersect. This practical book shows you how. Using various mapping techniques from UX design, you'll learn how to turn customer observations into actionable insight for product design. Author Jim Kalbach, Principal UX Designer with Citrix, introduces you to the principles behind alignment diagrams a class of deliverable also known as experience mapping using several examples. You'll learn how to visually map your existing customer experience, based on user research, and demonstrate how and where customer perspectives intersect with business goals.

Thinking in Promises

Imagine a set of simple principles that could help you to understand how parts combine to become a whole, and how each part sees the whole from its own perspective. If such principles were any good, it shouldn't matter whether we're talking about humans on a team, birds in a flock, computers in a datacenter, or cogs in a Swiss watch. A theory of cooperation ought to be pretty universal, so we should be able to apply it both to technology and to the workplace.

Prototype to Product

Product development is the magic that turns circuitry, software, and materials into a product, but moving efficiently from concept to manufactured product is a complex process with many potential pitfalls. This practical guide pulls back the curtain to reveal what happens - or should happen - when you take a product from prototype to production.

Abusing the Internet of Things

A future with billions of connected "things" includes monumental security concerns. This practical book explores how malicious attackers can abuse popular IoT-based devices, including wireless LED lightbulbs, electronic door locks, baby monitors, smart TVs, and connected cars. If you're part of a team creating applications for Internet-connected devices, this guide will help you explore security solutions. You'll not only learn how to uncover vulnerabilities in existing IoT devices, but also gain deeper insight into an attacker's tactics.

Machine Learning with R, 2nd Edition

Updated and upgraded to the latest libraries and most modern thinking, Machine Learning with R, Second Edition provides you with a rigorous introduction to this essential skill of professional data science. Without shying away from technical theory, it is written to provide focused and practical knowledge to get you building algorithms and crunching your data, with minimal previous experience.

NumPy Cookbook, 2nd Edition

NumPy has the ability to give you speed and high productivity. High performance calculations can be done easily with clean and efficient code, and it allows you to execute complex algebraic and mathematical computations in no time.This book will give you a solid foundation in NumPy arrays and universal functions. Starting with the installation and configuration of IPython, you'll learn about advanced indexing and array concepts along with commonly used yet effective functions. You will then cover practical concepts such as image processing, special arrays, and universal functions.

ggplot2 Essentials

ggplot2 is one of the most sophisticated and advanced packages of R and its use is constantly growing in the community of R programmers. This book is the perfect starting point for your journey in learning about one of the most refined and widely used plotting tools ggplot2.You will start by taking a tour of the most relevant packages available in R to create plots, such as graphics, lattice, and ggplot2. Following this, you will take a deep dive into the concepts of ggplot2 by covering different kinds of plots that will help you gear up for your first hands-on project.

Learning Haskell Data Analysis

Haskell is trending in the field of data science by providing a powerful platform for robust data science practices. This book provides you with the skills to handle large amounts of data, even if that data is in a less than perfect state. Each chapter in the book helps to build a small library of code that will be used to solve a problem for that chapter. The book starts with creating databases out of existing datasets, cleaning that data, and interacting with databases within Haskell in order to produce charts for publications. It then moves towards more theoretical concepts that are fundamental to introductory data analysis, but in a context of a real-world problem with real-world data.

Intel Galileo Blueprints

The Intel Galileo board was designed to add the power of an Intel processor to the simplicity of the Arduino platform. Intel Galileo gives you the freedom to create a wide range of DIY projects. Intel Galileo Blueprints will be a detailed guide that covers several projects based on the Intel Galileo board, exploiting the full potential of the board.You will first go through how to set up the development environment for the Galileo board. Next, you will connect different kinds of sensors to the Galileo board, and learn how to use the SD card reader of the board.
