Description : Python for Web Python definitely tops the charts when it comes to ease of use and beginner-friendly learning curve in the world of programming languages. At the same time, Python is essential when it comes to writing system scripts, processing big data, performing mathematical computations, creating web applications, and rapid prototyping. With this Mastering edition, we have focused especially on the usage of Python for Web. This book explores Python programming fundamentals with interactive projects and introduces core coding concepts and the basics of Python-based web development. The reader should be ready to dive deep into the world of Python for web development in no time. Since Python positions itself in web development as a back-end language, it is usually mixed with another front-end language to build a whole website. At the same time, reasons for using Python in web development are many: it is a flexible, versatile, and highly efficient programming language with dynamic typing capacity. This book helps readers to examine Python’s key back-end/front-end programming techniques and guides them through implementing them when creating professional projects. Furthermore, it also focuses on teaching readers how to solve common problems and developing web services with Python frameworks such as Django and Flask. Mastering Python for Web has a goal more ambitious than simply teaching you the ropes – it aims to help you embrace and master problem solving, which could be viewed as the single most crucial skill for a coder. It offers you a focal point on starting as a beginner and growing into an expert by putting your newly acquired knowledge into practice. Programming is a hands-on skill, and this particular book helps you put your skills to test with easy-to-grasp tasks and examples.

Description : If you want to become an iOS developer, you have made an excellent choice with this book. Swift holds a significant position in the iOS industry because of the long list of features it serves. It is user-friendly, has great community support, and offers a greater extent of customization. As a result, we can observe a sharp increase in the market demand for developing Apple mobile applications, and with that, companies search for smart developers with the right skill set. Mastering Swift introduces Apple’s excellent Swift standard library style and incorporates usage feedback across multiple Swift projects. However, it should be regarded as a living, changeable document and the basis upon which the programming language is implemented. Before going further into the details of the Swift programming language, the book briefly explains the basic information about the language. It is a high-level language created to develop multifaceted iOS applications that cater to diverse needs of different social and business domains. It is meant to develop high-end apps with multiple complexities. But since it is very close to Objective C, it is easy to code and understand. This feature also makes it incredibly friendly to beginners. Moreover, it is equally compatible with the iPhone, the iPad, Apple Watch, MacBook, and Apple TV, and it can be applied to develop equally efficient and scalable apps for them. This book in the Mastering series encircles all the essential aspects of Swift and explores why this programming language is the future for iOS app development. Different from other languages, it requires fewer lines to activate any feature. This paves the way for a shorter development cycle and saves a lot of precious resources. Further, as one of the most reliable iOS programming languages it supports dynamic libraries that indicate executable bits of code that you can link to an application. Because of such support, Swift apps can interoperate with the newest version of the language to make the app irreplaceable. Swift is a language that was not designed but deliberately made open source so as to invite community input, allowing the product to grow and to mature over the years. This could possibly be the most crucial aspect of Swift. As people become more aware of its potential to be used in servers, web frameworks were more willing to support the demand. Owing to its popularity and significance, its adoption rate in Apple’s rivals remains very high. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, if you are planning for iOS app development through Swift, this book can help with the high-domain expertise and experienced resources. Without a doubt, the developers that create native apps are not going to abandon Swift anytime soon. However, it seems like something must evolve for it to keep growing constantly. We believe that Swift is indeed the future for iOS app developers. And if you are convinced and want to start learning the programming language right away, then this book is what you’re looking for.

Description : Master multithreading and concurrent processing with C++ About This Book Delve into the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency and find out how to implement them Explore atomic operations to optimize code performance Apply concurrency to both distributed computing and GPGPU processing Who This Book Is For This book is for intermediate C++ developers who wish to extend their knowledge of multithreading and concurrent processing. You should have basic experience with multithreading and be comfortable using C++ development toolchains on the command line. What You Will Learn Deep dive into the details of the how various operating systems currently implement multithreading Choose the best multithreading APIs when designing a new application Explore the use of mutexes, spin-locks, and other synchronization concepts and see how to safely pass data between threads Understand the level of API support provided by various C++ toolchains Resolve common issues in multithreaded code and recognize common pitfalls using tools such as Memcheck, CacheGrind, DRD, Helgrind, and more Discover the nature of atomic operations and understand how they can be useful in optimizing code Implement a multithreaded application in a distributed computing environment Design a C++-based GPGPU application that employs multithreading In Detail Multithreaded applications execute multiple threads in a single processor environment, allowing developers achieve concurrency. This book will teach you the finer points of multithreading and concurrency concepts and how to apply them efficiently in C++. Divided into three modules, we start with a brief introduction to the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency concepts. We then take an in-depth look at how these concepts work at the hardware-level as well as how both operating systems and frameworks use these low-level functions. In the next module, you will learn about the native multithreading and concurrency support available in C++ since the 2011 revision, synchronization and communication between threads, debugging concurrent C++ applications, and the best programming practices in C++. In the final module, you will learn about atomic operations before moving on to apply concurrency to distributed and GPGPU-based processing. The comprehensive coverage of essential multithreading concepts means you will be able to efficiently apply multithreading concepts while coding in C++. Style and approach This book is filled with examples that will help you become a master at writing robust concurrent and parallel applications in C++.
