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

Praise for layout styles in Ruby

"Design styles in Ruby records shrewdpermanent how one can get to the bottom of many difficulties that Ruby builders generally come upon. Russ Olsen has performed a superb activity of choosing vintage styles and augmenting those with more recent styles that experience unique relevance for Ruby. He sincerely explains each one inspiration, 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 presents a very good demonstration of the main 'Gang of Four' layout styles with no resorting to overly technical factors. Written in an exact, but virtually casual kind, this e-book covers sufficient flooring that even these with out past publicity to layout styles will quickly consider convinced making use of them utilizing Ruby. Olsen has performed a good task to make a booklet a couple of classically 'dry' topic into such an enticing or even sometimes funny learn. "

—Peter Cooper

"This ebook renewed my curiosity in knowing styles after a decade of excellent intentions. Russ picked the main worthy styles for Ruby and brought them in a simple and logical demeanour, going past the GoF's styles. This ebook has stronger 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 approach for programmers from statically typed objectoriented languages to profit how layout styles seem in a extra dynamic, versatile language like Ruby. "

—Rob Sanheim, Ruby Ninja, Relevance

Most layout trend books are in response to C++ and Java. yet Ruby is different—and the language's particular characteristics make layout styles more uncomplicated to enforce and use. during this ebook, Russ Olsen demonstrates tips to mix Ruby's energy and magnificence with styles, and write extra subtle, powerful software program with a long way fewer traces of code.

After reviewing the background, techniques, and ambitions of layout styles, Olsen bargains a short journey of the Ruby language—enough to permit any skilled software program developer to right away make the most of styles with Ruby. The ebook specifically calls awareness to Ruby good points that simplify using styles, together with dynamic typing, code closures, and "mixins" for less complicated code reuse.

Fourteen of the vintage "Gang of Four" styles are thought of from the Ruby viewpoint, explaining what difficulties each one development solves, discussing even if conventional implementations make feel within the Ruby atmosphere, and introducing Ruby-specific advancements. You'll observe possibilities to enforce styles in precisely one or traces of code, rather than the eternally repeated boilerplate that traditional languages usually require.

Design styles in Ruby additionally identifies cutting 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" trend, designed to assist combine complete purposes and frameworks.

Engaging, useful, and available, layout styles in Ruby can help you construct greater software program whereas making your Ruby programming event 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. " via studying meeting language programming, you find out how the computer particularly operates and that wisdom may help you write greater high-level language code. a filthy little mystery meeting language programmers hardly ever admit to, besides the fact that, is that what you actually need to profit is computing device 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 laptop association with out the additional overhead of studying meeting language programming even as. and because Write nice Code Vol I concentrates at the desktop association, no longer meeting language, the reader will study in higher intensity these topics which are language-independent and of outrage to a excessive point language programmer. Write nice Code Vol i'll aid programmers make wiser offerings with appreciate to programming statements and knowledge forms while writing software program, irrespective of which language they use.

Additional resources for Arduino in Action

Sample text

2 The Arduino Mega pins and layout; note the additional input-output pins and the extra serial ports compared to the Arduino Uno. the microprocessor now used is the ATmega2560. The new version has 256 KB of flash memory compared to the 128 KB of the original. The Mega provides significantly increased input-output functionality compared to the standard Arduino, so with the increased memory, it’s ideal for those larger projects that control lots of LEDs, have a large number of inputs and outputs, or need more than one hardware serial port—the Arduino Mega has four.

Just type an empty function with a code comment: void setup(){ // nothing to setup { Now let’s look at the other required function, loop. 2 The endless loop When you go for a jog, you keep running until you’re done (however you define done). It’s the same with an Arduino; it runs continually in a looping routine or function called loop until some condition is met or the Arduino is powered down. 1. 3 An example loop function that blinks an LED on and off void loop() { digitalWrite(13, HIGH); delay(1000); digitalWrite(13,LOW); delay(1000); } In this case, the Arduino loops repeatedly, turning the LED on for a second and then off for a second, continuing until the Arduino is powered down.

4 Make something happen! Before you rush out to pick up all those exciting attachments, all you need for your first example is an Arduino, because all of them have an onboard LED connected to digital pin 13. For this first example, you’re going to make an LED blink on and off repeatedly. 3. 1 Your first blinking LED LEDs are available in a range of colors, but the LED connected to pin 13 on the Arduino is normally green. The LED lights up when a current is applied to it, so you can use pin 13 like a switch.
