Modern humanity with some 5,000 years of recorded history has been experiencing growing pains, with no end in sight. It is high time for humanity to grow up and to transcend itself by embracing transhumanism. Transhumanism offers the most inclusive ideology for all ethnicities and races, the religious and the atheists, conservatives and liberals, the young and the old regardless of socioeconomic status, gender identity, or any other individual qualities. This book expounds on contemporary views and practical advice from more than 70 transhumanists. Astronaut Neil Armstrong said on the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969, ´´One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.´´ Transhumanism is the next logical step in the evolution of humankind, and it is the existential solution to the long-term survival of the human race.
´´It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.´´- Charles Darwin As the industry is moving towards maximum digitization there is a consensus that DevOps practices help you deliver software faster, more reliable, and with fewer errors. So, whether you are from the Business side or technical side; DevOps have to be your way forward. DevOps is a set of practices and cultural values that have been proven to help organizations of all sizes improve their software release cycles, software quality, security, and ability to get rapid feedback on product development. This book is aimed at Consultant, Project Manager and people from techno-commercial profile who would be explaining the benefits of DevOps to the client, internal leadership or project teams. As the crux of DevOps methodology lies in the cultural transformation of the organization, people who are stakeholders in shaping this change must understand the overall alignment of business goals with this methodology. You would get to explore: What is DevOps A relationship between Agile, Scrum, Kanban and DevOps DevOps Adoption: Organizational cultural Change DevOps Ecosystem Emerging Trends DevOps success stories In the Bonus Booklet you will find out: DevOps Job Market overview Insights into DevOps job application People to follow on twitter
This book provides a theoretical and application-oriented analysis of deterministic scheduling problems in advanced planning and computer systems. The text examines scheduling problems across a range of parameters: job priority, release times, due dates, processing times, precedence constraints, resource usage and more, focusing on such topics as computer systems and supply chain management. Discussion includes single and parallel processors, flexible shops and manufacturing systems, and resource-constrained project scheduling. Many applications from industry and service operations management and case studies are described. The handbook will be useful to a broad audience, from researchers to practitioners, graduate and advanced undergraduate students.
This book distils into a single coherent handbook all the essentials of process automation at a depth sufficient for most practical purposes. No other book covers the gap between the theory and practice of control systems so comprehensively.
Are you a non-coder looking for insight into DevOps, Microservices Architecture and Kubernetes? As the industry is moving towards maximum digitization there is a consensus that DevOps practices help you deliver software faster, more reliable, and with fewer errors. You may be a consultant, Advisor, Project Manager or a novice into IT industry; after going through this guide you would be able to appreciate DevOps, Microservices and other related concepts like Kanban,Scrum, Agile, SOA, Monolith Architecture, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes etc. You would also get to know about the leaders in DevOps and Microservices adoption and impact it had on the overall agility and hyper-growth of the adopters. This book covers the complete lifecycle for your understanding like Integrating, Testing, Deploying DevOps and Microservices architecture and the Security concerns while deploying it. I am confident that after going through the book you would be able to navigate the discussion with any stakeholder and take your agenda ahead as per your role. Additionally, if you are new to the industry, and looking for an application development job, this book will help you to prepare with all the relevant information and understanding of the topic. ** I am also providing additional booklet containing all the relevant news, trends, and resources for DevOps and Microservices Architecture.
Data compression is one of the most important fields and tools in modern computing. From archiving data, to CD-ROMs, and from coding theory to image analysis, many facets of modern computing rely upon data compression. This book provides a comprehensive reference for the many different types and methods of compression. Included are a detailed and helpful taxonomy, analysis of most common methods, and discussions on the use and comparative benefits of methods and description of ´´how to´´ use them. Detailed descriptions and explanations of the most well-known and frequently used compression methods are covered in a self-contained fashion, with an accessible style and technical level for specialists and non-specialists.
Conceptual modeling is about describing the semantics of software applications at a high level of abstraction in terms of structure, behavior, and user interaction. Embley and Thalheim start with a manifesto stating that the dream of developing information systems strictly by conceptual modeling - as expressed in the phrase ´´the model is the code´´ - is becoming reality. The subsequent contributions written by leading researchers in the field support the manifesto´s assertions, showing not only how to abstractly model complex information systems but also how to formalize abstract specifications in ways that let developers complete programming tasks within the conceptual model itself. They are grouped into sections on programming with conceptual models, structure modeling, process modeling, user interface modeling, and special challenge areas such as conceptual geometric modeling, information integration, and biological conceptual modeling. The Handbook of Conceptual Modeling collects in a single volume many of the best conceptual-modeling ideas, techniques, and practices as well as the challenges that drive research in the field. Thus it is much more than a traditional handbook for advanced professionals, as it also provides both a firm foundation for the field of conceptual modeling, and points researchers and graduate students towards interesting challenges and paths for how to contribute to this fundamental field of computer science.
A valuable reference for the novice as well as for the expert who needs a wider scope of coverage within the area of cryptography, this book provides easy and rapid access of information and includes more than 200 algorithms and protocols; more than 200 tables and figures; more than 1,000 numbered definitions, facts, examples, notes, and remarks; and over 1,250 significant references, including brief comments on each paper. Cryptography, in particular public-key cryptography, has emerged an important discipline that is not only the subject of an enormous amount of research, but provides the foundation for information security in many applications. This title provides a treatment that introduces the practical aspects of both conventional and public-key cryptography.
