Introducing Web Components

In this article by Sandeep Kumar Patel , author of the book Learning Web Component Development , we will learn about the web component specification in detail. Web component is changing the web application development process. It comes with standard and technical features, such as templates, custom elements, Shadow DOM, and HTML Imports. The main topics that we will cover in this article about web component specification are as follows: What are web components? Benefits and challenges of web components The web component architecture Template element HTML Import

Writing a Fully Native Application

In this article written by Sylvain Ratabouil , author of Android NDK Beginner`s Guide - Second Edition , we have breached Android NDK's surface using JNI. But there is much more to find inside! The NDK includes its own set of specific features, one of them being Native Activities . Native activities allow creating applications based only on native code, without a single line of Java. No more JNI! No more references! No more Java!

Less with External Applications and Frameworks

In this article by Bass Jobsen , author of the book  Less Web Development Essentials - Second Edition , we will cover the following topics: WordPress and Less Using Less with the Play framework, AngularJS, Meteor, and Rails

Advanced Indexing and Array Concepts

In this article by Ivan Idris , the author of NumPy Cookbook - Second Edition , we will learn some of NumPy's more advanced and tricky indexing techniques. In this article, we will cover: Installing SciPy Installing PIL Resizing images Comparing views and copies Flipping Lena Fancy indexing Indexing with a list of locations Indexing with booleans Stride tricks for Sudoku Broadcasting arrays Before diving into indexing, we will install the necessary software — SciPy and PIL. Some of the examples in this article will involve manipulating images. In order to do that, we will require the Python Image Library (PIL); but don't worry, instructions and pointers to help you install PIL and other necessary Python software are given throughout the article, when necessary.

Controlling the Movement of a Robot with Legs

In this article by Richard Grimmett , author of the book  Raspberry Pi Robotics Projects - Second Edition , we will add the ability to move the entire project using legs. In this article, you will be introduced to some of the basics of servo motors and to using Raspberry Pi to control the speed and direction of your legged platform. Even though you've learned to make your robot mobile by adding wheels or tracks, these platforms will only work well on smooth, flat surfaces. Often, you'll want your robot to work in environments where the path is not smooth or flat; perhaps, you'll even want your robot to go upstairs or over other barriers. In this article, you'll learn how to attach your board, both mechanically and electrically, to a platform with legs so that your projects can be mobile in many more environments. Robots that can walk! What could be more amazing than this? In this article, we will cover the following topics: Connecting Raspberry Pi to a two-legged mobile platform using a servo motor controller Creating a program in Linux so that you can control the movement of the two-legged mobile platform Making your robot truly mobile by adding voice control

Solving Some Not-so-common vCenter Issues

In this article by Chuck Mills , author of the book  vCenter Troubleshooting , we will review some of the not-so-common vCenter issues that administrators could face while they work with the vSphere environment. The article will cover the following issues and provide the solutions: The vCenter inventory shows no objects after you log in You get the VPXD must be stopped to perform this operation message Removing the vCenter plugins when they are no longer needed

Integrating social media

In this article by Karol Krol , the author of the WordPress 4.x Complete , we will look at how we can integrate our website with social media. We will list some more ways in which you can make your site social media friendly, and also see why you'd want to do that in the first place. Let's start with the why . In this day and age, social media is one of the main drivers of traffic for many sites. Even if you just want to share your content with friends and family, or you have some serious business plans regarding your site, you need to have at least some level of social media integration. Even if you install just simple social media share buttons, you will effectively encourage your visitors to pass on your content to their followers, thus expanding your reach and making your content more popular.

Extracting data physically with dd

 In this article by Rohit Tamm a and Donnie Tindall , authors of the book  Learning Android Forensics , we will cover physical data extraction using free and open source tools wherever possible. The majority of the material covered in this article will use the ADB methods.

Installation and Upgrade

In this article by Robert Hedblom , author of the book  Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager Cookbook , we will cover the installation and upgrade for SQL Server on DPM server. We will also understand the prerequisites to start your upgrade process. You will learn how to: Install a SQL Server locally on the DPM server Prepare a remote SQL Server for DPMDB

Develop a Digital Clock

In this article by Samarth Shah , author of the book Learning Raspberry Pi , we will take your Raspberry Pi to the real world. Make sure you have all the components listed for you to go ahead: Raspberry Pi with Raspbian OS. A keyboard/mouse. A monitor to display the content of Raspberry Pi. If you don't have Raspberry Pi, you can install the VNC server on Raspberry Pi, and on your laptop using the VNC viewer, you will be able to display the content. Hook up wires of different colors (keep around 30 wires of around 10 cm long). To do: Read instructions on how to cut the wires. An HD44780-based LCD. Note; I have used JHD162A. A breadboard. 10K potentiometer (optional). You will be using potentiometer to control the contrast of the LCD, so if you don't have potentiometer, contrast would be fixed and that would be okay for this project. Potentiometer is just a fancy word used for variable resistor. Basically, it is just a three-terminal resistor with sliding or rotating contact, which is used for changing the value of the resistor.

Inserting GIS Objects

In this article by Angel Marquez author of the book  PostGIS Essentials see how to insert GIS objects. Now is the time to fill our tables with data. It's very important to understand some of the theoretical concepts about spatial data before we can properly work with it. We will cover this concept through the real estate company example, used previously. Basically, we will insert two kinds of data: firstly, all the data that belongs to our own scope of interest. By this, I mean the spatial data that was generated by us (the positions of properties in the case of the example of the real estate company) for our specific problem, so as to save this data in a way that can be easily exploited. Secondly, we will import data of a more general use, which was provided by a third party. Another important feature that we will cover in this article are the spatial data files that we could use to share, import, and export spatial data within a standardized and popular format called shp or Shape files. In this article, we will cover the following topics: Developing insertion queries that include GIS objects Obtaining useful spatial data from a public third-party Filling our spatial tables with the help of spatial data files using a command line tool Filling our spatial tables with the help of spatial data files using a GUI tool provided by PostGIS
