In this article by Steffen Damtoft Sommer and Jim Campagno , the author of the book Swift 3 Programming for Kids , we will walk you through what an array is. These are considered collection types in Swift and are very powerful.
In this article, we will cover the following recipes: Setting up a Kubernetes cluster Scaling up and down in a Kubernetes cluster Setting up WordPress with a Kubernetes cluster
In this article by Arun Ravindran , author of the book Django Best Practices and Design Patterns , we will discuss the following topics: Reading a Django code base Discovering relevant documentation Incremental changes versus full rewrites Writing tests before changing code Legacy database integration
In this article by Paul Thewlis , author of WordPress 3 For Business Bloggers , we'll look at one of the most important aspects of your blog design. We'll begin by considering some of the principles of good blog design. Even if your blog is already up and running, this article will allow you to critically evaluate its design and replace your current theme with a custom-designed one. This article includes: The principles of blog design How to implement your blog design using CSS and HTML
Windows Azure Service Bus offers features that are not offered by any other cloud platform on the market. One important feature is the Service Bus that enables you to connect your on-premise services to Windows Azure services and beyond. The Access Control Service enables you to easily authenticate users without having to write complex authentication code ourselves. By using Windows Identity Framework (WIF) and supporting identity providers such as Live ID, Yahoo, and Facebook, it will be easy to use these identity providers as the main authentication mechanism in our own services. In this article by Riccardo Becker , author of Windows Azure programming patterns for Start-ups , we will provide a systematic guide on how to integrate with Facebook. AppFabric also contains AppFabric applications, an easy way to develop and deploy composite applications. Another interesting feature is the caching feature that AppFabric offers.
In this article by Adnan Masood , author of the book, Learning F# Functional Data Structures and Algorithms , we see how to set up the IDE and create our first F# project. "Ah yes, Haskell. Where all the types are strong, all the men carry arrows, and all the children are above average." – marked trees (on the city of Haskell) The perceived adversity of functional programming is overly exaggerated; the essence of this paradigm is to explicitly recognize and enforce the referential transparency. We will see how to set up the tooling for Visual Studio 2013 and for F# 3.1, the currently available version of F# at the time of writing. We will review the F# 4.0 preview features by the end of this project. After we get the tooling sorted out, we will review some simple algorithms; starting with recursion with typical a Fibonacci sequence and Tower of Hanoi, we will perform lazy evaluation on a quick sort example. In this article, we will cover the following topics: Setting up Visual Studio and F# compiler to work together Setting up the environment and running your F# programs
In this article by Daniel Langenhan , the author of VMware vRealize Orchestrator Cookbook , we will take a closer look at how Orchestrator interacts with vCenter Server and vRealize Automation (vRA - formerly known as vCloud Automation Center, vCAC). vRA uses Orchestrator to access and automate infrastructure using Orchestrator plugins. We will take a look at how to make Orchestrator workflows available to vRA. We will investigate the following recipes: Unmounting all the CD-ROMs of all VMs in a cluster Provisioning a VM from a template An approval process for VM provisioning
The development of a neural network is inspired by human brain activities. As such, this type of network is a computational model that mimics the pattern of the human mind. In contrast to this, support vector machines first map input data into a high dimension feature space defined by the kernel function, and find the optimum hyperplane that separates the training data by the maximum margin. In short, we can think of support vector machines as a linear algorithm in a high dimensional space. In this article, we will cover: Training a neural network with neuralnet Visualizing a neural network trained by neuralnet
In this article by Prasad Kothari , the author of the book Data Analysis with STATA , the overall goal is to cover the STATA related topics such as data management, graphs and visualization and programming in STATA. The article will give a detailed description of STATA starting with an introduction to STATA and Data analytics and then talks about STATA programming and data management. After which it takes you through Data visualization and all the important statistical tests in STATA. Then the article will cover the Linear and the Logistics regression in STATA and in the end it will take you through few analyses like Survey analysis, Time Series analysis and Survival analysis in STATA. It also teaches different types of statistical modelling techniques and how to implement these techniques in STATA.
To develop a scalable, distributed, well-presented, complex, and multi-layered enterprise application is complicated. The development becomes even worse if the developer is not well aware of the software development fundamentals. Instead of looking at a bigger scenario, if we cut it down into parts and later combine them, it becomes easy for understanding as well as for developing. Each technology has some basics which we cannot overlook. Rather, if we overlook them, it will be the biggest mistake; the same is applicable to Java EE. In this article by TejaswiniMandar Jog , author of the book Learning Modular Java Programming , we are going to explore the following: Java EE technologies Why servlet and JSP? Introduction to Spring MVC Creating a sample application through Spring MVC
In this article by Rodolfo Giometti , author of the book GNU/Linux Rapid Embedded Programming , in this article we’re going to focusing our attention to the C compiler (with its counter part: the cross-compiler ) and when we have (or we can choose to) to use the native or cross-compilation and the differences between them.
