The second edition of Programming Scala gets experienced developers up to speed on one of today´s most exciting languages. Scala offers all the benefits of a modern object model, functional programming, and an advanced type system. Packed with code examples, this comprehensive book teaches programmers how to be productive with Scala quickly, and explains what makes this language ideal for today´s highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. New chapters include pattern matching, comprehensions, and advanced functional programming.
Follow this step-by-step guide for creating a continuous delivery pipeline using all of the new features in Jenkins 2.0 such as Pipeline as a Code, multi-branch pipeline, and more. You will learn three crucial elements for achieving a faster software delivery pipeline: a fungible build/test environment, manageable and reproducible pipelines, and a scalable build/test infrastructure. Pro Continuous Delivery demonstrates how to create a highly available, active/passive Jenkins server using some niche technologies. What You´ll Learn Create a highly available, active/passive Jenkins server using CoreOS and Docker, and using Pacemaker and Corosync Use a Jenkins multi-branch pipeline to automatically perform continuous integration whenever there is a new branch in your source control system Describe your continuous delivery pipeline with Jenkinsfile Host Jenkins server on a cloud solution Run Jenkins inside a container using Docker Discover how the distributed nature of Git and the ´´merge before build´´ feature of Jenkins can be used to implement gated check-in Implement a scalable build farm using Docker and Kubernetes Who This Book Is For You have experience implementing continuous integration and continuous delivery using Jenkins freestyle Jobs and wish to use the new Pipeline as a Code feature introduced in Jenkins 2.0 Your source code is on a Git-like version control system (Git, GitHub, GitLab, etc.) and you wish to leverage the advantages of a multi-branch pipeline in Jenkins Your infrastructure is on a Unix-like platform and you wish to create a scalable, distributed build/test farm using Docker or Kubernetes You are in need of a highly available system for your Jenkins Server using open source tools and technologies
Ultra-Fast ASP.NET presents a practical approach to building fast and scalable web sites using ASP.NET and SQL Server. In addition to a wealth of tips, tricks and secrets, you´ll find advice and code examples for all tiers of your application, including the client, caching, IIS 7, ASP.NET, threads, session state, SQL Server, Analysis Services, infrastructure and operations. By applying the ultra-fast approach to your projects, you´ll squeeze every last ounce of performance out of your code and infrastructure-giving your site unrivaled speed. The approach is mostly prescriptive; rather than drowning you in options, the book presents and explains specific high-impact recommendations and demonstrates them with detailed examples. Using this knowledge, you will soon be building high-performance web sites that scale easily as your site grows.
Even if you have little or no knowledge of T-SQL, Beginning T-SQL 2008 will bring you up to intermediate level and teach you best practices along the way. You´ll learn how to write code that will help you to achieve the best-performing applications possible. You´ll find an introduction to databases, normalization, and SQL Server Management Studio. You´ll understand how data is stored in a database and learn how to use at least one of the available tools to get to that data. Each subsequent chapter teaches an aspect of T-SQL, building on the skills learned in previous chapters. Exercises are included in each chapter because the only way to learn T-SQL is to write some code. This book will do more than just give the syntax and examples. It will teach you techniques to help you avoid common errors and create robust and well-performing code. Imparts best practices for writing T-SQL Helps readers avoid common errors Shows how to write scalable code that yields good performance
Software architecture is an important factor for the success of any software project. In the context of systematic design and construction, solid software architecture ensures the fulfilment of quality requirements such as expandability, flexibility, performance, and time-to-market. Software architects reconcile customer requirements with the available technical options and the prevailing conditions and constraints. They ensure the creation of appropriate structures and smooth interaction of all system components. As team players, they work closely with software developers and other parties involved in the project. This book gives you all the basic know-how you need to begin designing scalable system software architectures. It goes into detail on all the most important terms and concepts and how they relate to other IT practices. Following on from the basics, it describes the techniques and methods required for the planning, documentation, and quality management of software architectures. It details the role, the tasks, and the work environment of a software architect, as well as looking at how the job itself is embedded in company and project structures. The book is designed for self-study and covers the curriculum for the Certified Professional for Software Architecture - Foundation Level (CPSA-F) exam as defined by the International Software Architecture Qualification Board (iSAQB).
