Google and YouTube use Python because it's highly adaptable, easy to maintain, and allows for rapid development. If you want to write high-quality, efficient code that's easily integrated with other languages and tools, this hands-on book will help you be productive with Python quickly -- whether you're new to programming or just new to Python. It's an easy-to-follow self-paced tutorial, based on author and Python expert Mark Lutz's popular training course.
The book you’re holding in your hand (or reading on the screen) owes its genesis to a
tongue-in-cheek exchange with Steve Fleischer of Flying Tiger Web Design (www.
flyingtigerwebdesign.com), who suggested I should write Powers Object-Oriented PHP.
Actually, he phrased it rather differently. If you take the initial letters of the suggested title,
you’ll get the drift . . . But Steve had an important point: he felt that books on object-oriented
programming (OOP) frequently assumed too much prior knowledge or weren’t easily
adaptable to PHP in a practical way.
The objective of this book is to present methods of power system analysis and
design, particularly with the aid of a personal computer, in su‰cient depth
to give the student the basic theory at the undergraduate level. The approach
is designed to develop students’ thinking processes, enabling them to reach a
sound understanding of a broad range of topics related to power system
engineering, while motivating their interest in the electrical power industry.
The objective of this book is to acquaint the reader with explosive driven
pulsed power devices, theory and applications. This includes those devices
that convert the chemical energy stored in high explosives into electrical
energy and that use shock waves generated by the explosives to release
the energy stored in ferromagnetic or ferroelectric materials in the form of
electrical energy. The reader might well ask why one should use explosive
driven pulsed power for any application, since it is inherently single shot in
Take your coding skills to the next level with this extensive guide to Objective–C, the native programming language for developing sophisticated software applications for Mac OS X. Objective–C is a powerful, object–oriented extension of C, making this book the perfect follow–up to Dave Mark’s bestselling Learn C on the Mac, Mac OS X Edition. Whether you’re an experienced C programmer or you’re coming from a different language such as C++ or Java, leading Mac experts Mark Dalrymple and Scott Knaster show you how to harness the powers of Objective–C in your applications!...
Classes in Objective-C need interface and implementation definitions. Although
it’s not absolutely required, you typically keep the interface and implementations
in separate files. The file with the interface is named as same as the class itself
but with the .h file extension. The file with the implementation also has the class
name but with the .m file extension.
To use a custom class, you must import the class header file into the code file
where you intend on using the class. Then you can instantiate an object from the
class to use the functionality encapsulated in the class....
The main focus of this publication is the link between South Africa’s grand pan-African ambitions, especially in the area of peace, security and governance, and its own capacity to pursue these objectives. Specifically, the paper examines Pretoria’s involvement in Africa, and internal capacity to support its mediation, peacekeeping and strengthening the abilities of African institutions for peacemaking.
In the previous chapter, I introduced you to LINQ. I provided some examples to whet your appetite,
and shared some premature tips. You may be perplexed though by some of the syntax. If so, it is
probably because the C# you witnessed in that chapter is new and improved. The reason for the C#
language upgrade is that C# 2.0 just didn’t have the muscle to pull off LINQ. In this chapter, I introduce
you to the more powerful C# 3.0.
This report was concerned with the situation of learning English for
Engineering (EEE). It is fact that ESP subjects, especially EEE are worried problems.
Although EEE is one of compulsory subjects, many students in FOFL, HUT did not get
good marks and d06, k52 students were not an exception. The objective of this report was
to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of learning EEE as well as the main
reason why they did not get good mark in the final test.
Series Editor J. David Irwin Auburn University This is a series that will include handbooks, textbooks, and professional reference books on cutting-edge areas of engineering. Also included in this series will be single-authored professional books on state-of-theart techniques and methods in engineering. Its objective is to meet the needs of academic, industrial, and governmental engineers, as well as to provide instructional material for teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level. This series editor, J. David Irwin, is one of the best-known engineering educators in the world.
The generation, delivery, and utilization of electric power and energy remain among the most challenging
and exciting fields of electrical engineering. The astounding technological developments of our age are
highly dependent upon a safe, reliable, and economic supply of electric power. The objective of The
Electric Power Engineering Handbook is to provide a contemporary overview of this far-reaching field as
well as a useful guide and educational resource for its study.
commonly referred to as the Gang of Four or “GoF” book, has had a powerful
impact on those seeking to understand how to use design patterns and has
become an all-time best seller. We will refer to this groundbreaking book as
Design Patterns, throughout this book and The Design Patterns Smalltalk
Companion (Alpert, Brown and Woolf, 1998) as the Smalltalk Companion.
Welcome to Beginning PHP6, Apache, MySQL Web Development , your new trusty resource for assistance in
creating your own dynamic web sites. There are a lot of technologies available that can be used to deliver
great web sites, and we ’ re glad you chose the Apache/MySQL/PHP (sometimes referred to simply as
AMP) approach. You may or may not have had a taste of these three components in the past, but either
way we ’ re confident that you will be impressed with the power that lies within them. With this guide by
your side, you ’ ll soon learn why this combination is rapidly...
The old object model not only led to the afore-mentioned problems, but
also to fundamental problems that prevented implementing some additional
features on top of the existing object model.
In PHP 5, the infrastructure of the object model was rewritten to work
with object handles. Unless you explicitly clone an object by using the
keyword, you never create behind-the-scenes duplicates of your objects. In
PHP 5, you don’t need a need to pass objects by reference or assign them by
Pro SQL Database for Windows Azure, 2nd Edition shows how to create enterprise-level database deployments without the usual investment in datacenter and other infrastructure. Take advantage instead of Microsoft’s worldwide backbone for cloud computing that delivers all the power of SQL Server in the form of the cloud-based SQL Database for Windows Azure.
What is Adobe InDesign, and what can it do for you? In its more than a
decade in existence, InDesign has become the most powerful publishing
application, one that lets you work the way you want to work. You can
use InDesign as a free-form but manual approach to layout, or as a structured
but easily revised approach. The fact that you can choose which way to
work is important for both novice and experienced users because there is no
single, correct way to lay out pages.
If we consider that aerodynamics, from a modern point of view, is a branch of physics that
study physical laws and their applications, regarding the displacement of a body into a fluid,
such concept could be applied to any body moving in a fluid at rest or any fluid
moving around a body at rest. The general concept outlined above is applicable to
planes; cars; boats; big ships; missiles; wind energy generators; small flying objects,
like UAVs; etc.
