Introduction to Reliable and Secure Distributed...
€ 47.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In modern computing a program is usually distributed among several processes. The fundamental challenge when developing reliable and secure distributed programs is to support the cooperation of processes required to execute a common task, even when some of these processes fail. Failures may range from crashes to adversarial attacks by malicious processes.Cachin, Guerraoui, and Rodrigues present an introductory description of fundamental distributed programming abstractions together with algorithms to implement them in distributed systems, where processes are subject to crashes and malicious attacks. The authors follow an incremental approach by first introducing basic abstractions in simple distributed environments, before moving to more sophisticated abstractions and more challenging environments. Each core chapter is devoted to one topic, covering reliable broadcast, shared memory, consensus, and extensions of consensus. For every topic, many exercises and their solutions enhance the understanding This book represents the second edition of ´´Introduction to Reliable Distributed Programming´´. Its scope has been extended to include security against malicious actions by non-cooperating processes. This important domain has become widely known under the name ´´Byzantine fault-tolerance´´.

Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on Agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading Agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing, and growing your Agile team or organization. Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo´s Management 3.0 model recognizes that today´s organizations are living, networked systems; that you can´t simply let them run themselves; and that management is primarily about people and relationships. Management 3.0 doesn´t offer mere checklists or prescriptions to follow slavishly: rather it deepens your understanding of how organizations and Agile teams work, and gives you tools to solve your own problems. Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes Getting beyond ´´Management 1.0´´ command hierarchies, and ´´Management 2.0´´ fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization-and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won´t or can´t resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable-and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works Thoroughly pragmatic-and never trendy-Jurgen Appelo´s Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.

Refactoring to Patterns
€ 43.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book lays the foundation for maximizing the use of design patterns by helping the reader view them in the context of refactorings. Groundbreaking work! Part of Martin Fowler´s Signature Series, developed with significant input from Fowler himself Ties together two of the most popular methods in software engineering today -- refactoring and design patterns Helps software designers improve their efficiency and create more robust software The reality of software is that great software designs are not necessarily created, but it is more likely that they evolve. In this eagerly-anticipated new book, Joshua Kerievsky helps the experienced developer see design patterns in the context of refactorings, not just as reusable elements existing apart from the refactoring literature. This fresh perspective helps the reader to learn how to evolve a software design. Test-first programming and merciless refactoring are the key practices of evolutionary design, and the author imparts his unique knowledge on these topics. The result is a classic book containing a plethora of practical advice that will help software designers properly gauge the project at hand, and evolve a design that will give their organization a competitive advantage. Product Description In 1994, Design Patterns changed the landscape of object-oriented development by introducing classic solutions to recurring design problems. In 1999, Refactoring revolutionized design by introducing an effective process for improving code. With the highly anticipated Refactoring to Patterns , Joshua Kerievsky has changed our approach to design by forever uniting patterns with the evolutionary process of refactoring. This book introduces the theory and practice of pattern-directed refactorings: sequences of low-level refactorings that allow designers to safely move designs to, towards, or away from pattern implementations. Using code from real-world projects, Kerievsky documents the thinking and steps underlying over two dozen pattern-based design transformations. Along the way he offers insights into pattern differences and how to implement patterns in the simplest possible ways. Coverage includes: A catalog of twenty-seven pattern-directed refactorings, featuring real-world code examples Descriptions of twelve design smells that indicate the need for this book´s refactorings General information and new insights about patterns and refactoring Detailed implementation mechanics: how low-level refactorings are combined to implement high-level patterns Multiple ways to implement the same pattern-and when to use each Practical ways to get started even if you have little experience with patterns or refactoring Refactoring to Patterns reflects three years of refinement and the insights of more than sixty software engineering thought leaders in the global patterns, refactoring, and agile development communities. Whether you´re focused on legacy or ´´greenfield´´ development, this book will make you a better software designer by helping you learn how to make important design changes safely and effectively.

Great Big Agile: An OS for Agile Leaders
€ 31.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Big Agile leaders need an empirical, ´´high-trust´´ model that provides guidance for scaling and sustaining agility and capability throughout a modern technology organization. This book presents the Agile Performance Holarchy (APH)-a ´´how-ability´´ model that provides agile leaders and teams with an operating system to build, evaluate, and sustain great agile habits and behaviors. The APH is an organizational operating system based on a set of interdependent, self-organizing circles, or holons, that reflect the empirical, object-oriented nature of agility. As more companies seek the benefits of Agile within and beyond IT, agile leaders need to build and sustain capability while scaling agility-no easy task-and they need to succeed without introducing unnecessary process and overhead. The APH is drawn from lessons learned while observing and assessing hundreds of agile companies and teams. It is not a process or a hierarchy, but a holarchy, a series of performance circles with embedded and interdependent holons that reflect the behaviors of high-performing agile organizations. Great Big Agile provides implementation guidance in the areas of leadership, values, teaming, visioning, governing, building, supporting, and engaging within an all-agile organization. What You´ll Learn Model the behaviors of a high-performance agile organization Benefit from lessons learned by other organizations that have succeeded with Big Agile Assess your level of agility with the Agile Performance Holarchy Apply the APH model to your business Understand the APH performance circles, holons, objectives, and actions Obtain certification for your company, organization, or agency Who This Book Is For Professionals leading, or seeking to lead, an agile organization who wish to use an innovative model to raise their organization´s agile performance from one level to the next, all the way to mastery
