In this article by George Siogkas, author of the book, Visual Media Processing Using MATLAB Beginner's Guide, we will dig a little deeper into the image filtering theory and use some more complicated techniques to enhance our images. All the methods we will present, will once more be accompanied by hands-on examples that demonstrate their significance in both typical and more advanced image processing tasks.
In this article, we shall learn:
- The basic theory on image filtering and processing pixel neighborhoods
- How we can filter an image using convolution
- Alternative ways to filter an image
- Creating image filters in MATLAB
- Using filters for image blurring
So, let's get started!Read 2-Dimensional Image Filtering in full

Modifications, we will learn Bukkit by learning how to read its API documentation.
You may be wondering what the difference is between Bukkit and CraftBukkit. Many people use the two words interchangeably. However, they are in fact different files. In this article you will be introduced to the Bukkit API and learn what it allows you to accomplish through programming plugins for a CraftBukkit server. By the end of this article you will most likely have numerous ideas for plugins that you will eventually be able to create yourself. This article will cover the following in more detail:
- Understanding the purpose of an API
- Finding documentation of the Bukkit API
- Navigating through JavaDocs to find specific information
In this article, by Kamalakannan Elangovan, the author of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Reporting Cookbook, we will understand and acquire the skills necessary to be good at reporting based on SSRS.
This article will cover the following recipes:
- Creating a matrix report
- Creating a multicolumn matrix report
- Creating a column chart
- Creating a line chart
The legacy reporting system in Dynamics AX had very limited capabilities of how you can render data. Something as simple as adding an image and placing it right was a mammoth task, while things such as graphs and charts were not imaginable. SSRS takes away this pain and makes it easy to represent data in different formats. SSRS reports help create easier and convenient representation of data graphically that is easy for the end user to assimilate. This article will discuss recipes that cover the different kinds of controls other than the table layout discussed so far that can be used to represent data, such as matrix, charts, and gauges. The reader will be familiarized with the different controls and how they can be put to use in reports through this article.Read Reporting Based on SSRS in full
This article created by Raymond Camden and Andy Matthews, authors of jQuery Mobile Web Development Essentials walks you through your first jQuery Mobile project. It details what must be added to your project's directory and source code. You know what jQuery Mobile is, the history of it as well as its features and goals. Now we're actually going to build our first jQuery Mobile website (well, web page) and see how easy it is to use.
In this article we will perform the following steps:
- Create a simple HTML page
- Add jQuery Mobile to the page
- Make use of custom data attributes (data-*)
- Update the HTML to make use of the data attributes that jQuery Mobile recognizes
This article by Luis Augusto Weir and Andrew Bell, the authors of the book Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation, introduces a case study that will be further developed throughout the article. It will introduce a fictitious company that is looking to implement SOA Governance following a maturity assessment and a SOA Roadmap elaboration. The case study will help you to understand the concepts being presented in this article, as well as how to apply them to implement Oracle SOA Governance in an easily digestible form by illustrating the typical problems faced by organizations introducing governance, and how the benefits derived from its inception must be measurable and tangible.
The case study is based on actual scenarios experienced by the authors and therefore should provide a realistic view of the key challenges faced when implementing SOA Governance, and how they can be overcome.Read Implementation Case Study in full
