In fall 2001, the RAND Corporation conducted a survey of officers and enlisted personnel who had recently returned from a deployment to Prince Sultan Air Base (PSAB) or Eskan Village in Saudi Arabia. This documented briefing reports the results of that effort, using survey data to consider the utility of a PSAB/Eskan deployment as a setting for skill broadening and competency development. In doing so, this research addresses the larger issue of whether the learning that occurs during deployments merits tracking....
Jayme Schroeder was introduced to computers at a very young age. By 11, he had started
creating modifications and level packs for his favorite game. By age 16, he had found his true passion in game development and network programming in C++ and OpenGL. In early 2011, Jayme had received an Android smartphone and immediately fell in love with the development experience. Since then, he has been researching and developing for the Android platform on a daily basis.

I would like to acknowledge the contribution made to this book by
colleagues in the Open University Business School who helped to shape
my ideas and writing in the field of project management. Some of the
material in this book was published in a similar form but in a different
context as Managing Projects in Health and Social Care, published by
Routledge in 2002. Acknowledgement is also due to Eddie Fisher, Stephen
Oliver and others who have contributed ideas from their experience.
As the Internet continues to grow exponentially, the need for network engineers to build, maintain,
and troubleshoot the growing number of component networks also has increased significantly.
Because network troubleshooting is a practical skill that requires on-the-job experience, it has
become critical that the learning curve necessary to gain expertise in internetworking technologies be
reduced to quickly fill the void of skilled network engineers needed to support the fast-growing

more than $575 billion, making this sector the world number one export
earner, ahead of automotive production, chemicals, petroleum and food
(UNEP web site1).

Welcome to the exciting world of HTML5! If you’re an ASP.NET developer looking to turbocharge your
ASP.NET applications with HTML5 features, you’ve picked the right book. Compared to its successors,
HTML5 offers a much richer and complex set of features. HTML5 isn’t just about additional markup tags—
it’s about APIs that you can program using client-side script.
On one hand, HTML5 simplifies tasks that weren’t possible previously; but at the same time, it calls for
a detailed understanding of HTML5 features and ways to integrate those features into your applications.
No book is the product of its author(s) or editor(s) alone. This book is no
different. Accordingly, we would especially like to thank Dr. Don Cole,

project. Although he did not see the many drafts of this work, he was supportive
of it. It was his original idea to define the knowledge and skill necessary for
competence in OD.
