Develop cloud-native applications
If your team is investigating ways to design applications for the cloud, this concise book introduces 11 architecture patterns that can help you take advantage of cloud-platform services. You'll learn how each of these platform-agnostic patterns work, when they might be useful in the cloud, and what more » impact they'll have on your application architecture. You'll also see an example of each pattern applied to an application built with Windows Azure.
The patterns are organized into four major topics, such as scalability and handling failure, and primer chapters provide background on each topic. With the information in this book, you'll be able to make informed decisions for designing effective cloud-native applications that maximize the value of cloud services, while also paying attention to user experience and operational efficiency. « less
UI Patterns for Mobile Applications
When you're under pressure to produce a well designed, easy-to-navigate mobile app, there's no time to reinvent the wheel. This concise book provides a handy reference to 70 mobile app design patterns, illustrated by more than 400 screenshots from current iOS, Android, BlackBerry, WebOS, Windows Mobile, more » and Symbian apps.
User experience professional Theresa Neil (Designing Web Interfaces) walks you through design patterns in 10 separate categories, including anti-patterns. Whether you're designing a simple iPhone application or one thatâs meant to work for every popular mobile OS on the market, these patterns provide solutions to common design challenges. This print edition is in full color. « less
SOA Patterns provides detailed, technology-neutral solutions to these challenges, and many others, using plain language. You'll understand the design patterns that promote and enforce flexibility, availability, and scalability. Each of the 26 patterns uses the classic problem/solution format and a unique more » technology map to show where specific solutions fit into the general pattern.
Written for working developers and architects building services and service-oriented solutions. Knowledge of Java or C# is helpful but not required. « less
This book fills a void between the many syntax-oriented programming texts that teach readers how to program in C++ with standard I/O (e.g., Deitel) and the relatively few books that assume a knowledge of OOP/C++ and emphasize GUI programming using higher-level frameworks (e.g., Blanchette). There are more » plenty of books on C++ programming but, with few exceptions, the user interface is constrained to either primitive terminal I/O, or closed-source, non-portable libraries (e.g., Microsoft Foundation Classes). « less
Design Patterns for Decomposition and Coordination on Multicore Architectures
Your CPU meter shows a problem. One core is running at 100 percent, but all the other cores are idle. Your application is CPU-bound, but you are using only a fraction of the computing power of your multicore system. Is there a way to get better performance?
The answer, in a nutshell, is parallel programming. more » Where you once would have written the kind of sequential code that is familiar to all programmers, you now find that this no longer meets your performance goals. To use your system's CPU resources efficiently, you need to split your application into pieces that can run at the same time. « less
Pro HTML5 and CSS3 Design Patterns is a reference book and a cookbook on how to style web pages using CSS3 and HTML5. It contains 350 ready-to-use patterns (CSS3 and HTML5 code snippets) that you can copy and paste into your code. Each pattern can be combined with other patterns to create an unlimited more » number of solutions, and each pattern works reliably in all major browsers without the need for browser hacks.
The book is completely up-to-date with code, best practices, and browser compatibilities for HTML5 and CSS3âenabling you to dive in and make use of these new technologies in production environments.
Pro HTML5 and CSS3 Design Patterns is so much more than just a cookbook, though! It systematically covers every usable feature of CSS3 and combines these features with HTML5 to create reusable patterns. Each pattern has an intuitive name to make it easy to find, remember, and refer to. Accessibility and best practices are carefully engineered into each design pattern, example, and source code. « less
Successfully Delivering Solutions via Patterns
In Patterns-Based Engineering, two leading experts bring together true best practices for developing and deploying successful software-intensive systems. Drawing on their extensive enterprise development experience, the authors clearly show how to deliver on the promise of a patterns-based approach - more » and consistently create higher-quality solutions faster, with fewer resources. « less
This unique book takes good ASP.NET application construction one step further by emphasizing loosely coupled and highly cohesive ASP.NET web application architectural design. Each chapter addresses a layer in an enterprise ASP.NET application and shows how proven patterns, principles, and best practices more » can be leveraged to solve problems and improve the design of your code. In addition, a professional-level, end-to-end case study is used to show how to actuate best practice design patterns and principles in a real web site. The framework built to support the case study can be used as the basis from which you can build real web sites, extend the code, and implement specific ASP.NET code. « less
