Java is currently among the most widely used programming languages. It is particularly popular among programming beginners, because the language is both powerful and free of error-prone concepts, such as pointer arithmetic.
This book is especially written for absolute programming beginners who have no previous knowledge of Java or other programming languages. It explains important programming concepts in an easy and comprehensive way, allowing programming beginners to familiarize themselves with the Java programming language very quickly. There are programming examples for every topic to reinforce the lessons. Furthermore, the book recommends more than sixty-five webpages that can help readers improve their Java coding skills.
The book includes advanced topics such as network programming, concurrency, and graphical user interfaces; the basics of these and other Java topics are presented in a beginner-friendly way.
"Learning by doing" is a reliable method for learning programming languages. In keeping with this method, the book offers exercises for all topics covered. You can apply your learning directly and intensify your knowledge of the Java programming language.
The book covers the following topics:
Atmel's AVR microcontrollers are the chips that power Arduino, and are the go-to chip for many hobbyist and hardware hacking projects. In this book you'll set aside the layers of abstraction provided by the Arduino environment and learn how to program AVR microcontrollers directly. In doing so, you'll get closer to the chip and you'll be able to squeeze more power and features out of it.Each chapter of this book is centered around projects that incorporate that particular microcontroller topic. Each project includes schematics, code, and illustrations of a working project.
Updated for both Python 3.4 and 2.7, this convenient pocket guide is the perfect on-the-job quick reference. Youâll find concise, need-to-know information on Python types and statements, special method names, built-in functions and exceptions, commonly used standard library modules, and other prominent Python tools. The handy index lets you pinpoint exactly what you need.

Get the realistic practice you need to successfully prepare for the Programming, Planning & Practice division of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) with Programming, Planning & Practice: ARE Sample Problems and Practice Exam. 88 challenging sample problems are presented in the same formats as the problems on the exam, including multiple-choice, check-all-that-apply, and fill-in-the-blank. A sample vignette prepares you for the graphic portion of the exam. Clearly explained solutions, are provided to supplement your review. Also included is a realistic 85-problem practice exam that simulates the actual exam experience through content areas covered, length, level of difficulty, format, and the use of logical distractors. The practice exam includes a vignette covering site zoning just like the actual exam.

Programming Massively Parallel Processors: A Hands-on Approach, Third Edition shows both student and professional alike the basic concepts of parallel programming and GPU architecture, exploring, in detail, various techniques for constructing parallel programs.
Case studies demonstrate the development process, detailing computational thinking and ending with effective and efficient parallel programs. Topics of performance, floating-point format, parallel patterns, and dynamic parallelism are covered in-depth.
For this new edition, the authors have updated their coverage of CUDA, including coverage of newer libraries, such as CuDNN, moved content that has become less important to appendices, added two new chapters on parallel patterns, and updated case studies to reflect current industry practices.
If you want to learn how to program but don't know where to start, this is the right book and the right language for you. From the first page, our unique self-paced approach will help you build competence and confidence in your programming skills. And Python is the best language ever for learning how to program because of its simplicity and breadth...two features that are hard to find in a single language.
But this isn't just a book for newbies! Our self-paced approach also works for experienced programmers, helping you learn faster and better than you've ever learned a language before. By the time you're through, you will have mastered all of the Python skills that are needed on the job, including those for object-oriented, database, and GUI programming.
To make all of this possible, section 1 of this book presents an 8-chapter course that will get anyone off to a great start. Section 2 builds on that base by presenting the other essential skills that every Python programmer should have. Section 3 shows you how to develop object-oriented programs, a critical skillset in today's world. And section 4 shows you how to apply all of the skills that you've already learned as you build database and GUI programs for the real world.
Architectural programming is a team effort that requires close cooperation between architects and their clients. Problem Seeking, Fifth Edition lays out a five-step procedure that teams can follow when programming any building or series of buildings, from a small house to a hospital complex. This simple yet comprehensive process encompasses the entire range of factors that influence the design of buildings.
This Fifth Edition of the only programming guide appropriate for both architect and client features new information related to BIM, integrated practice, and sustainable design when programming. Supplemented with more than 120 illustrations and diagrams updated for this edition, this indispensable resource provides revised technical information and faster, easier access to explanations, examples, and tools, including:
Guidance on incorporating the latest technological tools when programming
A primer on discounted cash flow analysis and net present value analysis
Project statement examples organized by project phase and building type
Useful techniques for data management, functional relationship analysis, and more
Designed for first-time and experienced users, this book describes the UNIXÂ® programming environment and philosophy in detail. Readers will gain an understanding not only of how to use the system, its components, and the programs, but also how these fit into the total environment.
