Hello World s Book Excerpt:

Foreword 2005 marks t he 10th birthday of Java technology. Starting out as just a programming language, Java technology has exploded into a ubiquitous technology platform that today touches the lives of people everywhere. The 10th birthday celebration book tells the story of how Java technology came to influence technologists, then businesses, then consumers, and now has become the predominate software on the planet. In the early 1990s, a small group of us from Sun Microsystems were given the opportunity to spend all of our time thinking of what "the next big thing in technology" would be. What we created was a hardware-independent software platform unlike any other. We thought it was pretty cool, and so did our developer friends. But at that time, I don't think that any of us really had any idea of what we had done, not to mention how it would change the world. I certainly know I didn't. Of course, it wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the Java developer community. Developers are the ones who made the technology a success over the years. Their ingenuity, creativity, and millions of hours of contributed help has made the platform what it is today. We're lucky to have millions of developers constantly driving it forward into the future. Every day I hear about new and cool uses for Java technology. I'm gratified, and still constantly amazed.

Go Design Patterns Book Excerpt:

Learn idiomatic, efficient, clean, and extensible Go design and concurrency patterns by using TDD About This Book A highly practical guide filled with numerous examples unleashing the power of design patterns with Go. Discover an introduction of the CSP concurrency model by explaining GoRoutines and channels. Get a full explanation, including comprehensive text and examples, of all known GoF design patterns in Go. Who This Book Is For The target audience is both beginner- and advanced-level developers in the Go programming language. No knowledge of design patterns is expected. What You Will Learn All basic syntax and tools needed to start coding in Go Encapsulate the creation of complex objects in an idiomatic way in Go Create unique instances that cannot be duplicated within a program Understand the importance of object encapsulation to provide clarity and maintainability Prepare cost-effective actions so that different parts of the program aren't affected by expensive tasks Deal with channels and GoRoutines within the Go context to build concurrent application in Go in an idiomatic way In Detail Go is a multi-paradigm programming language that has built-in facilities to create concurrent applications. Design patterns allow developers to efficiently address common problems faced during developing applications. Go Design Patterns will provide readers with a reference point to software design patterns and CSP concurrency design patterns to help them build applications in a more idiomatic, robust, and convenient way in Go. The book starts with a brief introduction to Go programming essentials and quickly moves on to explain the idea behind the creation of design patterns and how they appeared in the 90's as a common "language" between developers to solve common tasks in object-oriented programming languages. You will then learn how to apply the 23 Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns in Go and also learn about CSP concurrency patterns, the "killer feature" in Go that has helped Google develop software to maintain thousands of servers. With all of this the book will enable you to understand and apply design patterns in an idiomatic way that will produce concise, readable, and maintainable software. Style and approach This book will teach widely used design patterns and best practices with Go in a step-by-step manner.

Hacking The Art of Exploitation 2nd Edition Book Excerpt:

Hacking is the art of creative problem solving, whether that means finding an unconventional solution to a difficult problem or exploiting holes in sloppy programming. Many people call themselves hackers, but few have the strong technical foundation needed to really push the envelope. Rather than merely showing how to run existing exploits, author Jon Erickson explains how arcane hacking techniques actually work. To share the art and science of hacking in a way that is accessible to everyone, Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition introduces the fundamentals of C programming from a hacker's perspective. The included LiveCD provides a complete Linux programming and debugging environment—all without modifying your current operating system. Use it to follow along with the book's examples as you fill gaps in your knowledge and explore hacking techniques on your own. Get your hands dirty debugging code, overflowing buffers, hijacking network communications, bypassing protections, exploiting cryptographic weaknesses, and perhaps even inventing new exploits. This book will teach you how to: – Program computers using C, assembly language, and shell scripts – Corrupt system memory to run arbitrary code using buffer overflows and format strings – Inspect processor registers and system memory with a debugger to gain a real understanding of what is happening – Outsmart common security measures like nonexecutable stacks and intrusion detection systems – Gain access to a remote server using port-binding or connect-back shellcode, and alter a server's logging behavior to hide your presence – Redirect network traffic, conceal open ports, and hijack TCP connections – Crack encrypted wireless traffic using the FMS attack, and speed up brute-force attacks using a password probability matrix Hackers are always pushing the boundaries, investigating the unknown, and evolving their art. Even if you don't already know how to program, Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition will give you a complete picture of programming, machine architecture, network communications, and existing hacking techniques. Combine this knowledge with the included Linux environment, and all you need is your own creativity.

Perl Hacks Book Excerpt:

With more than a million dedicated programmers, Perl has proven to be the best computing language for the latest trends in computing and business. While other languages have stagnated, Perl remains fresh, thanks to its community-based development model, which encourages the sharing of information among users. This tradition of knowledge-sharing allows developers to find answers to almost any Perl question they can dream up. And you can find many of those answers right here in Perl Hacks. Like all books in O'Reilly's Hacks Series, Perl Hacks appeals to a variety of programmers, whether you're an experienced developer or a dabbler who simply enjoys exploring technology. Each hack is a short lesson--some are practical exercises that teach you essential skills, while others merely illustrate some of the fun things that Perl can do. Most hacks have two parts: a direct answer to the immediate problem you need to solve right now and a deeper, subtler technique that you can adapt to other situations. Learn how to add CPAN shortcuts to the Firefox web browser, read files backwards, write graphical games in Perl, and much more. For your convenience, Perl Hacks is divided by topic--not according toany sense of relative difficulty--so you can skip around and stop at any hack you like. Chapters include: Productivity Hacks User Interaction Data Munging Working with Modules Object Hacks Debugging Whether you're a newcomer or an expert, you'll find great value in Perl Hacks, the only Perl guide that offers somethinguseful and fun for everyone.
