Nobody likes to think that they make mistakes
Making changes means talking about past mistakes – and admitting that they are mistakes!
You may make a great case for change, and still fail to convince people to do it.
Because change is uncomfortable, people in organizations will resist it.
Project managers who try to change their organizations run into several common excuses when trying to implement tools, techniques and practices.
This book developed out of a course in laboratory informatics for residents in
training in pathology and for fellows in the clinical laboratory sciences given
over a period of years. The topics covered and the approach taken were
strongly influenced by real-life experience. Pathology residents and clinical
laboratory scientists, like the general population, vary greatly in familiarity
with information issues in the laboratory and the computer system and infrastructure
that supports an information system.

I started exploring telecommunications’ frontiers at the tender age of nine,
way back in 1964. That was the year I visited the New York World’s Fair and
found myself, quite unexpectedly, drafted into a corporate public relations
Back then, nearly all U.S. telecommunications—hardware, software and
service—was concentrated in the hands of a giant monopoly—the American
Telephone and Telegraph Co. AT&T’s showplace at the fair was the Bell
System Pavilion. (Fig. Intro.-1).
The tools for working with assemblies in SolidWorks 2005 are quite robust and feature rich. During this course, we will cover many of the commands and options in great detail. However, it is impractical to cover every minute detail and still have the course be a reasonable length.
The software, and knowledge industry in general, has been on a blazing growth path
in the last few decades and especially so in India. As the size of organizations grew
rapidly, so did the need for managers to manage a growing business and growing
teams. As a result, most managers in the software industry today started out as
techies, including me. I was lucky to have learned from some of the best managers,
but also some not so great ones. Regardless, there is a lot of catching up that new
managers need to do...
People expect effortless, engaging interaction with desktop and web applications, but producing software that generates enjoyable user experiences is much harder than many companies anticipate. With Effective UI, you'll learn proven user-experience strategies that will satisfy your clients and customers, drive business value, and increase brand strength.

DotNetNuke is not just a great piece of free (yes, free!) software: It’s your key
to a vibrant and ever-changing community of software users, designers, and
developers. How deeply you choose to get involved with the DotNetNuke
world is up to you. If you opt for little involvement, you can simply download
the code or find a hosting provider who can set you up with a domain and
hosting where you can build your DotNetNuke Web site.
This book is the work of a great team. First I’d like to thank my editor Suzanne Goraj for her
excellent job on the editing process. The production editor Elizabeth Campbell was always
a pleasure to work with and kept the book moving along and on schedule. Thanks also to
technical editor Donald Fuller for his thorough edit and for keeping me honest.
I would like to thank Neil Edde, associate publisher and James Chellis who both helped
develop and nurtured the MCSE series of books since the beginning.
The CPU contains a special set of memory cells called registers that can be read and written to much more rapidly than the main memory area. There are typically between two and one hundred registers depending on the type of CPU. Registers are used for the most frequently needed data items to avoid having to access main memory every time data is needed. As data is constantly being worked on, reducing the need to access main memory (which is often slow compared to the ALU and control units) greatly increases the computer's speed....

In simplest terms, a blog is software that allows anyone who can type to post content to a website
or blog home page. The content is generally displayed much like a journal might be written, in
reverse chronological fashion.
This content can be anything the author chooses to write, or post, as it is referred to in
Now, on the surface, what this means is that anyone can update a website that has this blogging
software installed and that’s a great thing. Websites benefit from change and blogs make it easy
to change, update, and add content....
In the last few years, the search for radically new approaches to software engineering has witnessed a great momentum. These efforts are well justified by the troubling state of present day computer science. Software engineering practices based on design-time architectural composition (the only assessed way of doing software engineering so far), lead to brittle and fragile systems, unable to gracefully cope with reconfiguration and faults.
