Animating Elements

In this article by Alex Libby , author of the book Mastering PostCSS for Web Design , you will study about animating elements. A question if you had the choice of three websites: one static, one with badly done animation, and one that has been enhanced with subtle use of animation. Which would you choose? Well, my hope is the answer to that question should be number three: animation can really make a website stand out if done well, or fail miserably if done badly! So far, our content has been relatively static, save for the use of media queries. It's time though to take a look at how PostCSS can help make animating content a little easier. We'll begin with a quick recap on the basics of animation before exploring the route to moving away from pure animation through to SASS and finally across to PostCSS. We will cover a number of topics throughout this article, which will include: A recap on the use of jQuery to animate content Switching to CSS-based animation Exploring the use of prebuilt libraries, such as  Animate.css

Roles and Responsibilities for Records Management Implementation in Alfresco 3

From what we have seen in article, Introduction to Successful Records Management Implementation in Alfresco 3 , clearly there is more to implementing a records management system successfully than simply installing and configuring software. There are many cultural, process, and people issues that need to be considered in planning for a records management system. In this article, by Dick Weisinger , author of Alfresco 3 Records Management , we will discuss how we can start building the team that will actually design, plan, and build the records management system.

Creating User Interfaces

This article by Belen Cruz Zapata , the author of the book Android Studio 2 Essentials - Second Edition , focuses on the creation of the user interfaces using layouts. The layouts can be created using a graphical view or a text-based view. Since there are over 18,000 Android device types, you will learn about fragmentation on different screen types and will discuss how to prepare our application for this issue. We will end this article with basic notions of handling events on our application.

A capability model for microservices

In this article by Rajesh RV , the author of Spring Microservices , you will learn aboutthe concepts of microservices. More than sticking to definitions, it is better to understand microservices by examining some common characteristics of microservices that are seen across many successful microservices implementations. Spring Boot is an ideal framework to implement microservices. In this article, we will examine how to implement microservices using Spring Boot with an example use case. Beyond services, we will have to be aware of the challenges around microservices implementation. This article will also talk about some of the common challenges around microservices. A successful microservices implementation has to have some set of common capabilities. In this article, we will establish a microservices capability model that can be used in a technology-neutral framework to implement large-scale microservices.

Backup and Recovery for Oracle SOA Suite 12C

 In this article written by Ahmed Aboulnaga , Arun Pareek , and Harold Dost , authors of the book Oracle SOA Suite 12c Administrator's Guide , you have already recognized the importance of establishing well-defined backup and recovery procedures as an administrator. It is easy to write in length on this topic alone, discussing various backup, restore, failover, migration, and disaster recovery strategies. Fortunately, we will focus on the most important areas in this chapter to simplify the process for you as best as we can. As long as you understand a few core concepts regarding the overall backup and recovery strategy for Oracle SOA Suite 12 c , you can implement it in any number of ways. Establishing a backup and restore strategy is important because it provides you the ability to restore your environment in the event of a critical infrastructure or hardware failure. For instance, if you experience a hard drive failure, the disks may have to be replaced and the software restored from backup. It also provides you the ability to restore your environment to a previously working snapshot in the event of a faulty patch, faulty code deployment, or faulty configuration. In some cases, these faulty updates are not undoable and thus a restore may be needed. In this chapter, we will cover the following key areas: Understanding what needs to be backed up The rrecommended backup strategy Implementing the backup process Recovery strategies (For more resources related to this topic, see here .)

Tinkering Around in Django JavaScript Integration

One of the great joys of programming is not when we are trying to get the bare essentials basically working, but when the system is working as a whole, and we start to ask, "What about this? What about that?" One positive sense of the term "hacking" can refer to this tinkering, and it can be a joy to tinker with an already working system to see what enhancements are possible. Here we will tinker with the system and make some minor tweaks and two slightly more major enhancements. In this article, by Jonathan Hayward , author of Django JavaScript Integration: AJAX and jQuery we will cover: Minor bugfixes and enhancements A more usable input solution for passwords Telling an (approximate) local time for other people we are working with, who may be in different time zones
