"Since Lightroom first launched 11 years ago, Scott Kelbys The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers has been the worlds #1 top-selling Lightroom book (it has been translated into dozens of different languages), and in this latest version for Lightroom Classic CC, Scott did his biggest update ever, sharing all his latest techniques, insights, and invaluable tips using his award-winning, step-by-step, plain-English style that makes learning Lightroom easy and fun. Scott doesnt just show you which sliders do what (every Lightroom book does that, right?). Instead, he shares his own personal settings, his time-tested techniques, and his proven step-by-step method of learning Lightroom, so you can begin using it like a pro from the start."-- Provided by publisher.
The Rust programming language / by Steve Klabnik and Carol Nichols ; with contributions from the Rust Community.
"The Rust Programming Language is the official book on Rust; a community-developed, systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. Rust's memory safety guarantees, enforced at compile time, safeguard your programs against the many problems that pervade other systems languages. Rust offers the control and performance of a low-level language with the helpful abstractions of a high level one, and does this all without having a garbage collector. Thesecharacteristics make Rust useful for embedding in other languages, programs with specific space and time requirements, and writing low-level code, like device drivers and operating systems. The Rust Programming Language begins with a quick hands-on project to introduce the basics, then explores key concepts in depth, such as ownership, the type system, error handling, and fearless concurrency. Detailed explanations of Rust-oriented takes on topics like pattern matching, iterators, and smart pointers combine with examples and exercises to take you from theory to practice. In addition to its thorough coverage of more granular topics, The Rust Programming Language will show you how to: -Grasp important concepts unique to Rust like ownership, borrowing,and lifetimes -Use Cargo, Rust's built-in package manager, to build your code, including downloading and building dependencies -Effectively use Rust's zero-cost abstractions and learn to build your own Developed with help from the community, The RustProgramming Language is your official guide to becoming a productive Rust programmer"-- Provided by publisher.
Successfully developing microservices-based applications requires mastering a new set of architectural insights and practices. In this unique book, microservice architecture pioneer and Java Champion Chris Richardson collects, catalogues, and explains 44 patterns that solve problems such as service decomposition, transaction management, querying, and inter-service communication. "Microservices patterns" teaches you how to develop and deploy production-quality microservices-based applications. This invaluable set of design patterns builds on decades of distributed system experience, adding new patterns for writing services and composing them into systems that scale and perform reliably under real-world conditions. More than just a patterns catalog, this practical guide offers experience-driven advice to help you design, implement, test, and deploy your microservices-based application.
Over the past 10 years, distributed systems have become more fine-grained. From the large multi-million line long monolithic applications, we are now seeing the benefits of smaller self-contained services. Heavy-weight, hard to change Service Oriented Architectures are not the answer; instead we are now seeing finer-grained systems consisting of collaborating microservices. Easier to change, deploy, and if required retire, organizations which are in the right position to take advantage of them are yielding significant benefits. This book takes an holistic view of the things you need to be cognizant of in order to pull this off. It covers just enough understanding of technology, architecture, operations and organization to show you how to move towards finer-grained systems.
Veracity of big data : machine learning and other approaches to verifying truthfulness / Vishnu Pendyala.
Examine the problem of maintaining the quality of big data and discover novel solutions. You will learn the four V's of big data, including veracity, and study the problem from various angles. The solutions discussed are drawn from diverse areas of engineering and math, including machine learning, statistics, formal methods, and the Blockchain technology. Veracity of Big Data serves as an introduction to machine learning algorithms and diverse techniques such as the Kalman filter, SPRT, CUSUM, fuzzy logic, and Blockchain, showing how they can be used to solve problems in the veracity domain. Using examples, the math behind the techniques is explained in easy-to-understand language. Determining the truth of big data in real-world applications involves using various tools to analyze the available information. This book delves into some of the techniques that can be used. Microblogging websites such as Twitter have played a major role in public life, including during presidential elections. The book uses examples of microblogs posted on a particular topic to demonstrate how veracity can be examined and established. Some of the techniques are described in the context of detecting veiled attacks on microblogging websites to influence public opinion. -- Back cover.
