Further on, the book will demonstrate the unbelievable ease of configuring asynchronous behavior and other aspects of the app that are traditionally considered to be hard to implement and maintain. It will explain what Rx is made of, and how to switch to reactive way of thinking to get the most out of it. Also, test production code using RxTest and the red/ green approach. Finally, the book will dive into real-world recipes and show you how to build a real-world app by applying the reactive paradigm. By the end of the book, you’ll be able to build a reactive swift application by leveraging all the concepts this book takes you through. What you will learn Understand the practical benefits of Rx on a mobile platform Explore the building blocks of Rx, and Rx data flows with marble diagrams Learn how to convert an existing code base into RxSwift code base Learn how to debug and test your Rx Code Work with Playgrounds to transform sequences by filtering them using map, flatmap and other operators Learn how to combine different operators to work with Events in a more controlled manner. Discover RxCocoa and convert your simple UI elements to Reactive components Build a complete RxSwift app using MVVM as design pattern Who this book is for This book is for the developers who are familiar with Swift and iOS application development and are looking out to reduce the complexity of their apps.

You’ll begin by planning and then building a native iOS app using Swift. Then, you'll get to grips with building web pages and creating web views of your native app using Vapor. To put things into perspective, you'll learn how to build an entire full-stack web application and an API server for your native mobile app, followed by learning how to deploy the app to the cloud, and add registration and authentication to it. Once you get acquainted with creating applications, you'll build a tvOS version of the shopping list app and explore how easy is it to create an app for a different platform with maximum code shareability. Towards the end, you’ll also learn how to create an entire app for different platforms in Swift, thus enhancing your productivity. What you will learn Get accustomed to server-side programming as well as the Vapor framework Learn how to build a RESTful API Make network requests from your app and handle error states when a network request fails Deploy your app to Heroku using the CLI command Write a test for the Vapor backend Create a tvOS version of your shopping list app and explore code-sharing with an iOS platform Add registration and authentication so that users can have their own shopping lists Who this book is for This book is for developers who are looking to build full-stack web and native mobile applications using Swift.

Mastering Public Administration Book Excerpt:

Raadschelders and Fry provide a singular investigation into the influence of 10 scholars on contemporary public administration as well as how significant their work continues to be on contemporary research. In a field that is eclectic and pragmatic, it is only fitting that the diversity of the following scholars reflects the diversity of the field of public administration: Max Weber, Frederick W. Taylor, Luther H. Gulick, Mary Parker Follett, Elton Mayo, Chester Barnard, Herbert A. Simon, Charles E. Lindblom, Elinor Ostrom, and Dwight Waldo. The impacts of their personal life experiences on scholarly thought and their ideas about science and a science of public administration are used to enhance an examination of their ideas, concepts, and theories. The writings of such a wide-ranging group of scholars are also connected by a recognition of the growth and organizational independence of the field of public administration. For the Fourth Edition, a new perspective has been included: a review of Elinor Ostrom’s work provides valuable new material on organization and decision making that is applicable in many disciplines and across many fields. In addition, substantive updates to the scholarship and analysis found in each of the chapters in the book encourage new avenues for questions, insight, and exploration in the field of public administration.
