Our previous tutorial discussed the basics of XML
and demonstrated its potential to revolutionize the
Web. In this tutorial, we’ll discuss how to use an
XML parser to:
• Process an XML document
• Create an XML document
• Manipulate an XML document
We’ll also talk about some useful, lesser-known
features of XML parsers. Best of all, every tool
discussed here is freely available at IBM’s
alphaWorks site (www.alphaworks.ibm.com) and
other places on the Web.
Beginning C for Arduino is written for those who have no prior experience with microcontrollers or programming but would like to experiment and learn both. This book introduces you to the C programming language, reinforcing each programming structure with a simple demonstration of how you can use C to control the Arduino family of microcontrollers. Author Jack Purdum uses an engaging style to teach good programming techniques using examples that have been honed during his 25 years of university teaching....
Beginning Mac Programming takes you through concrete, working examples, giving you the core concepts and principles of development in context so you will be ready to build the applications you've been imagining. It introduces you to Objective-C and the Cocoa framework in clear, easy-to-understand lessons, and demonstrates how you can use them together to write for the Mac, as well as the iPhone and iPod.
"Dynamo: Visual Programming for Design" will demonstrate how to use Dynamo Visual Programming forautodesk® revit® software and autodesk vasari. The lab will provide users with resources and step by step examples for automating geometry creation, adjusting family parameters using external data, and sharing information with different design platforms.
A step-by-step guide to create easy solutions to build your business using Windows Azure services
Explore the different features of Windows Azure and its unique concepts.
Get to know the Windows Azure platform by code snippets and samples by a single start-up scenario throughout the whole book.
A clean example scenario demonstrates the different Windows Azure features.
This book aims to instil the reader with an understanding of the Object Oriented approach to programming and aims to develop some practical skills along the way. These practical skills will be developed by small exercises that the reader will be invited to undertake and the feedback that will be provided.
The concepts that will be explained and skills developed are in common use among programmers using many modern object oriented languages and are thus transferrable from one language to another.
For each of the chapters there is a folder with the presentations and lab content for that chapter. Each presentation has a corresponding folder containing the demonstrations for that chapter. The demonstration slides contain step by step instructions in the slide notes. Not all the demonstrations have sample projects associated with them, for these demonstrations the program will be created during the presentation. The first 9 chapters also have a lab document which contains a set of lab exercises for that chapter. Some of the lab documents also have answer documents....
Programming Social Apps focuses on the OpenSocial platform, along with Apache Shindig, OAuth, OpenID, and other tools, demonstrating how they work together to help you solve practical issues. Each chapter uncovers a new layer in the construction of highly viral social applications and platforms.

This example-driven guide shows you how to set up and configure Hive in your environment, provides a detailed overview of Hadoop andMapReduce, and demonstrates how Hive works within the Hadoop ecosystem. You’ll also find real-world case studies that describe how companies have used Hive to solve unique problems involving petabytes of data.
Want to tap the power behind search rankings, product recommendations, social bookmarking, and online matchmaking? This fascinating book demonstrates how you can build Web 2.0 applications to mine the enormous amount of data created by people on the Internet. With the sophisticated algorithms in this book, you can write smart programs to access interesting datasets from other web sites, collect data from users of your own applications, and analyze and understand the data once you've found it.
The federal government supports some private
activities—such as home ownership, postsecondary
education, and certain commercial ventures—through
credit assistance offered to individuals and businesses.
Some of that assistance is in the form of direct federal
loans, and some is through federal guarantees of loans
made by private financial institutions. At the end of fiscal
year 2011, about $2.7 trillion was outstanding in such
federal direct loans and loan guarantees.
TRICARE, the program through which military health system beneficiaries access health care services, provides coverage for most medically necessary mental health care delivered by qualified providers. Federal legislation in 2001 required the Department of Defense to conduct a demonstration project involving expanded access under TRICARE to a particular type of mental health service provider
Chapter 12 demonstrated how to create simple windows and display basic shapes: rectangle, circle, triangle, and ellipse. It showed how to manipulate such shapes: change colors and line style, add text, etc. Chapter 13 shows how these shapes and operations are implemented, and shows a few more examples. In Chapter 12, we were basically tool users; here we become tool builders.
This chapter presents the various bit operators. This chapter is a complete unit in itself and can be safely skipped. There are two practical uses for bit operators. First, we show how to put eight single bit flags in one byte. Secondly, we demonstrate simple bitmapped graphics.
One of C++’s great features is its extensibility. As we’ve seen in the section on classes, you can define objects and have them manage their own data structures. Now we learn how to define how the various C++ operators that work on these data structures. For this chapter we present a fixed point class. This class was chosen because it's simple and it demonstrates all of the simple operator overloading functions.
You see the advantages of object-oriented programming from the preceding two chapters. This chapter will demonstrate how to solve problems using the object-oriented paradigm. Before studying these examples, we first introduce several language features for supporting these examples.
