By Kai Hwang, Naresh Jotwani

Dr. Hwang provides distinct info at the structure of desktops, research of scalability, conception and utilization of parallelism and programmability during this publication. The publication is split into 4 components which includes 3 chapters each one and has a complete of thirteen chapters.

the 1st a part of the booklet offers easy rules on parallel processing. The chapters during this half are geared toward construction the fundamental starting place for the readers for additional examine into and software program. the second one half covers information on complicated processors, cache and methods relating to reminiscence and pipelining. The 3rd half offers info on shared-memory multiprocessors. The fourth and ultimate a part of the e-book bargains with diverse versions for parallel programming. It offers an in depth research into software program instruments used for application improvement and function enhancements.

Advanced computing device structure: Parallelism, Scalability, Programmability is a aggressive and appropriate publication in its style because of its common theories at the rules that govern parallelism, scalability and programmability. The designated but basic process in facing those subject matters retains the booklet from turning into out of date regardless of common adjustments in technology.

Advanced machine structure: Parallelism, Scalability, Programmability is appropriate for senior or graduate point classes and will even be used a good reference instrument for college students. there's an introductory flowchart that gives a prepared consultant for college students and academics alike to get the utmost profit out of examining it. The ebook contains 360 illustrations, and 114 solved examples. The ebook comprises case reviews of platforms like Hitachi, Blue Gene, Fujitsu, and Tera.

Design Patterns in Ruby (Addison-Wesley Professional Ruby Series)

Praise for layout styles in Ruby

"Design styles in Ruby files shrewdpermanent how one can get to the bottom of many difficulties that Ruby builders quite often stumble upon. Russ Olsen has performed a superb task of choosing vintage styles and augmenting those with more moderen styles that experience designated relevance for Ruby. He essentially explains every one notion, creating a wealth of expertise to be had to Ruby builders for his or her personal day-by-day paintings. "

—Steve Metsker, dealing with advisor with Dominion electronic, Inc.

"This ebook offers an excellent demonstration of the most important 'Gang of Four' layout styles with no resorting to overly technical motives. Written in an actual, but virtually casual type, this booklet covers adequate flooring that even these with no earlier publicity to layout styles will quickly think convinced utilizing them utilizing Ruby. Olsen has performed a good task to make a ebook a couple of classically 'dry' topic into such a fascinating or even sometimes funny learn. "

—Peter Cooper

"This publication renewed my curiosity in realizing styles after a decade of fine intentions. Russ picked the main important styles for Ruby and brought them in a simple and logical demeanour, going past the GoF's styles. This ebook has enhanced my use of Ruby, and inspired me to blow off the airborne dirt and dust protecting the GoF booklet. "

—Mike Stok

"Design styles in Ruby is a brilliant manner for programmers from statically typed objectoriented languages to benefit how layout styles seem in a extra dynamic, versatile language like Ruby. "

—Rob Sanheim, Ruby Ninja, Relevance

Most layout development books are in keeping with C++ and Java. yet Ruby is different—and the language's distinct characteristics make layout styles more straightforward to enforce and use. during this ebook, Russ Olsen demonstrates how you can mix Ruby's strength and style with styles, and write extra refined, powerful software program with a ways fewer traces of code.

After reviewing the historical past, techniques, and objectives of layout styles, Olsen deals a brief travel of the Ruby language—enough to permit any skilled software program developer to instantly make the most of styles with Ruby. The ebook particularly calls recognition to Ruby positive factors that simplify using styles, together with dynamic typing, code closures, and "mixins" for simpler code reuse.

Fourteen of the vintage "Gang of Four" styles are thought of from the Ruby perspective, explaining what difficulties each one trend solves, discussing no matter if conventional implementations make feel within the Ruby atmosphere, and introducing Ruby-specific advancements. You'll become aware of possibilities to enforce styles in exactly one or strains of code, rather than the forever repeated boilerplate that traditional languages frequently require.

Design styles in Ruby additionally identifies leading edge new styles that experience emerged from the Ruby neighborhood. those comprise how one can create customized items with metaprogramming, in addition to the formidable Rails-based "Convention Over Configuration" development, designed to assist combine whole purposes and frameworks.

Engaging, functional, and available, layout styles in Ruby might help you construct greater software program whereas making your Ruby programming adventure extra rewarding.

Write Great Code, Volume 1: Understanding the Machine

If you've requested somebody the key to writing effective, well-written software program, the reply that you've most likely gotten is "learn meeting language programming. " by means of studying meeting language programming, you find out how the computing device particularly operates and that wisdom may help you write larger high-level language code. a grimy little mystery meeting language programmers not often admit to, although, is that what you really want to benefit is desktop association, no longer meeting language programming. Write nice Code Vol I, the 1st in a sequence from meeting language specialist Randall Hyde, dives correct into desktop association with out the additional overhead of studying meeting language programming even as. and because Write nice Code Vol I concentrates at the computer association, now not meeting language, the reader will study in larger intensity these topics which are language-independent and of shock to a excessive point language programmer. Write nice Code Vol i'm going to support programmers make wiser offerings with recognize to programming statements and knowledge varieties whilst writing software program, regardless of which language they use.
