Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases Through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation by Jez Humble & David Farley
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 5.20 MB
Overview: Winner of the 2011 Jolt Excellence Award!

Getting software released to users is often a painful, risky, and time-consuming process. This groundbreaking new book sets out the principles and technical practices that enable rapid, incremental delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. Through automation of the build, deployment, and testing process, and improved collaboration between developers, testers, and operations, delivery teams can get changes released in a matter of hours– sometimes even minutes-no matter what the size of a project or the complexity of its code base. Jez Humble and David Farley begin by presenting the foundations of a rapid, reliable, low-risk delivery process. Next, they introduce the “deployment pipeline,” an automated process for managing all changes, from check-in to release. Finally, they discuss the “ecosystem” needed to support continuous delivery, from infrastructure, data and configuration management to governance. The authors introduce state-of-the-art techniques, including automated infrastructure management and data migration, and the use of virtualization. For each, they review key issues, identify best practices, and demonstrate how to mitigate risks.

Whether you’re a developer, systems administrator, tester, or manager, this book will help your organization move from idea to release faster than ever–so you can deliver value to your business rapidly and reliably.

Download Bio-Inspired Optimization in Fog by Punit Gupta (.PDF)

Bio-Inspired Optimization in Fog and Edge Computing Environments: Principles, Algorithms, and Systems by Punit Gupta, Dinesh Kumar Saini, Pradeep Rawat, Kashif Zia
Requirements: .PDF reader, 31.38 MB
Overview: A new era of complexity science is emerging, in which nature- and bio-inspired principles are being applied to provide solutions. At the same time, the complexity of systems is increasing due to such models like the Internet of Things (IoT) and fog computing. Will complexity science, applying the principles of nature, be able to tackle the challenges posed by highly complex networked systems?

Bio-Inspired Optimization in Fog and Edge Computing: Principles, Algorithms, and Systems is an attempt to answer this question. It presents innovative, bio-inspired solutions for fog and edge computing and highlights the role of machine learning and informatics. Nature- or biological-inspired techniques are successful tools to understand and analyze a collective behavior. As this book demonstrates, algorithms, and mechanisms of self-organization of complex natural systems have been used to solve optimization problems, particularly in complex systems that are adaptive, ever-evolving, and distributed in nature.

The chapters look at ways of enhancingto enhance the performance of fog networks in real-world applications using nature-based optimization techniques. They discuss challenges and provide solutions to the concerns of security, privacy, and power consumption in cloud data center nodes and fog computing networks. The book also examines how:

The existing fog and edge architecture is used to provide solutions to future challenges.A geographical information system (GIS) can be used with fog computing to help users in an urban region access prime healthcare.An optimization framework helps in cloud resource management.Fog computing can improve the quality, quantity, long-term viability, and cost-effectiveness in agricultural production.Virtualization can support fog computing, increase resources to be allocated, and be applied to different network layers.The combination of fog computing and IoT or cloud computing can help healthcare workers predict and analyze diseases in patients.

Download The Authoring Problem by Charlie Hargood (.PDF)

The Authoring Problem: Challenges in Supporting Authoring for Interactive Digital Narratives by Charlie Hargood, David E. Millard, Alex Mitchell, Ulrike Spierling
Requirements: .PDF reader, 6.57 MB
Overview: Authoring, its tools, processes, and design challenges are key issues for the Interactive Digital Narrative (IDN) research community. The complexity of IDN authoring, often involving stories co-created by procedures and user interaction, creates confusion for tool developers and raises barriers for new authors.

This book examines these issues from both the tool designer and the author’s perspective, discusses the poetics of IDN and how that can be used to design authoring tools, explores diverse forms of IDN and their demands, and investigates the challenges around conducting research on IDN authoring.

To address these challenges, the chapter authors incorporate a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on ‘The Authoring Problem’ in IDN. While existing texts provide ‘how-to’ guidance for authors, this book is a primer for research and practice-based investigations into the authoring problem, collecting the latest thoughts about this area from key researchers and practitioners.

Download The Art of Manufacturing by Ninad Deshpande (.PDF)

The Art of Manufacturing: Overcome control challenges for increasing efficiency in manufacturing using real-world examples by Ninad Deshpande
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10 MB
Overview: Engineering disciplines focus mainly on programming control systems, while the challenges they overcome or their industry applications largely go uncovered, leaving a huge gap between the theory and industry practices. This leads to engineers learning about subjects without actually understanding their purpose and entering the industry needing months of training.

The Art of Manufacturing cuts across pedantic theory and reaches practical applications. You’ll begin your learning journey by starting from the product and moving backward to the manufacturing landscape, factories, machines, and finally to the automation and control challenges faced in manufacturing. The book builds on the authors’ valuable on-field experience, providing a detailed view of the manufacturing of real-world products, while simultaneously providing various analogies and references to daily tasks. As you advance through the chapters, you’ll work on interesting control problems and find out how to overcome them in applications. The concluding chapters offer you a sneak peek into the future of automation and factories.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to relate a real-world product with an associated control challenge and discover ways to overcome these challenges.
