The first edition of C Programming: A Modern Approach was popular with students and faculty alike because of its clarity and comprehensiveness as well as its trademark Q&A sections.
Ruby is the fastest growing and most exciting dynamic language out there. If you need to get working programs delivered fast, you should add Ruby to your toolbox. This book is the only complete reference for both Ruby 1.9 and Ruby 2.0, the very latest version of Ruby. 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the Ruby language. We're proud that throughout its history, we've continued to cover the latest version of Ruby.Would you like to go from first idea to working code much, much faster? Do you currently spend more time satisfying the compiler instead of your clients or end users? Are you frustrated with demanding languages that seem to get in your way, instead of getting the work done? Are you using Rails, and want to dig deeper into the underlying Ruby language? If so, then we've got a language and book for you!Ruby is a fully object-oriented language, much like the classic object-oriented language, Smalltalk. Like Smalltalk, it is dynamically typed (as opposed to Java or C++), but unlike Smalltalk, Ruby features the same conveniences found in modern scripting languages such as Perl and Python.The combination of the power of a pure object-oriented language with the convenience of a scripting language makes Ruby a favorite tool of intelligent, forward-thinking programmers.The Pickaxe contains four major sections: An acclaimed tutorial on using Ruby. The definitive reference to the language. Complete documentation of all built-in classes, modules, and methods. Complete descriptions of all 97 standard libraries.This is the reference manual for Ruby, including a description of all the standard library modules, a complete reference to all built-in classes and modules (including all the new and changed methods introduced by Ruby 1.9, 1.9.2, 1.9.3, and 2.0). It also includes all the new and changed syntax and semantics introduced since Ruby 1.8. Learn about the new parameter passing rules, local variable scoping in blocks, fibers, and the new block declaration syntax, among other exciting new features.About Ruby 2.0Ruby 2.0 is a minor update to Ruby 1.9, unlike the more major updates from Ruby 1.8 to Ruby 1.9.The major language changes in Ruby 2.0 are the addition of keyword arguments and the change to use UTF-8 as the default source file encoding.There are a number of additions to the standard library, including: @Enumerator::Lazy@, which adds support for lazy access to potentially infinite lists. Refinements allow you to encapsulate changes to third-party classes, and scope their application to individual source files, preventing your changes from polluting the global application.You'll also find that Ruby 2 is faster, and has memory management improvements that make it more server-friendly.All told, there are over 110 sections of the book that have been flagged and cross-linked to indicate 2.0 content.What You Need This book assumes you have a basic understanding of object-oriented programming. In general, Ruby programmers tend to favor the the command line for running their code, and they tend to use text editors rather than IDEs.* Ruby runs on Windows, Linux, and Macs.
Don't accept the compromise between fast and beautiful: you can have it all. Phoenix creator Chris McCord, Elixir creator Jose Valim, and award-winning author Bruce Tate walk you through building an application that's fast and reliable. At every step, you'll learn from the Phoenix creators not just what to do, but why. Packed with insider insights and completely updated for Phoenix 1.3, this definitive guide will be your constant companion in your journey from Phoenix novice to expert, as you build the next generation of web applications.
Phoenix is the long-awaited web framework based on Elixir, the highly concurrent language that combines a beautiful syntax with rich metaprogramming. The best way to learn Phoenix is to code, and you'll get to attack some interesting problems. Start working with controllers, views, and templates within the first few pages. Build an in-memory context, and then back it with an Ecto database layer, complete with changesets and constraints that keep readers informed and your database integrity intact. Craft your own interactive application based on the channels API for the real-time applications that this ecosystem made famous. Write your own authentication plugs, and use the OTP layer for supervised services. Organize code with modular umbrella projects.
This edition is fully updated for Phoenix 1.3, Elixir 1.3, and Ecto 2.1, with a new chapter on using Channel Presence to find out who's connected, even on a distributed application. Use the new generators and the new ExUnit features to organize tests and make Ecto tests concurrent.
This is a book by developers and for developers, and we know how to help you ramp up quickly. Any book can tell you what to do. When you've finished this one, you'll also know why to do it.
What You Need:To work through this book, you will need a computer capable of running Erlang 18 or higher, Elixir 1.3 or higher, Phoenix 1.3 or higher, and Ecto 2.1 or higher. A rudimentary knowledge of Elixir is also highly recommended.
This is the 5th edition of Murach's classic Java book that's trained thousands of developers in the last 15 years. Now fully updated to Java 9, this book helps any programmer learn Java faster and better than ever before:

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Python is a general-purpose language, which means it can be used to build just about anything, which will be made easy with the right tools/libraries.
Python is one of the over 1000 computer programming languages that are known today. Python has also grown tremendously to become one of the leading programming languages. People have liked it for its syntax and semantics which are easy for one to grasp, even those without a background in computer programming. Due to this, Python is taught to juniors in many schools worldwide.
Python is also cross-platform, meaning that one can code in Python from various operating systems. Professionally, Python is great for backend web development, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and scientific computing. People, companies and institutions have used Python to develop different applications including web applications, game applications, desktop applications etc. The popularity of Python also continues to rise every day.
