The testing1 mindset is something that is deeply ingrained in some programming communities and almost absent in others. How a community treats testing seems to be largely a factor of built-in tools support and how much the practice is promoted by the founders or protagonists of that community. For instance, testing has been a big thing in the Ruby on Rails community because the framework had built-in unit testing support and DHH mentioned it in every talk he gave. This, in turn, led to testing being covered even by beginner books from the get-go....
The developers chose the 8088 over the 8086 because, while the 8088 worked on a 16-bit basis internally, it only
communicated with the outside world using an 8-bit data bus. Since the 8-bit DataMaster data bus already existed, the 8088
was the obvious choice. This bus connects the motherboard of the PC, where the processor and its support chips are resident,
to the memory and the expansion boards, which are plugged into the expansion slots.
TOEIC testing can be arranged through corporations or other organizations that ask employees or job
applicants to take the TOEIC test. Many language-training programs and schools offer TOEIC testing as
well. If testing has not been arranged through your organization, you can contact your local TOEIC
representative to find out when and where you can take the test. The TOEIC test is available throughout
Perl provides direct access to the C library routines for
socket communication. Often, arguments and return
values are constants defined in the C header files, or
are data structures which Perl will pass in a packed
The Socket module provides these constants and also
many functions for packing and unpacking these data
Before, we dive into the evolution of ASP, we should review some basic Web client/server
fundamentals. At the highest level, communication in a Web-based environment occurs
between two entities: (1) a Web client (most commonly a Web browser such as Internet
Explorer or Netscape Navigator), which is an application that requests files from a Web
server, and (2) a Web server, which is a software application, usually residing on a server,
that handles client requests.
The National Target Program (NTP) will communicate priority
activities addressing the urgent and immediate needs and concerns
of the country, relating to adaptation to the impacts of CC. Activities proposed through NTP would be those whose further delay could increase vulnerability, or lead to increased costs at a later stage. The NTP will be presented in the form of a document specifying a
list of priority activities, with a concise justification based on a
tight set of criteria.

• Companies are starting to get it – conscience isn’t just trendy, it’s necessary • “Sustainable development plans” are becoming commonplace • No one wants to be Martha, Enron, etc. • The Bonus: Doing good = Good for business
A Gradual Shift
• PriceWaterhouseCoopers 2002 Sustainability Survey Report – 140 U.S. companies – 70 percent had no broad-based sustainability program in place yet. – 69% were reviewing or revising ethics programs or their corporate-governance process.
This book has been designed as a reference book for students or engineers studying
communication systems possibly in the curriculum of Electrical Engineering program rather
than a text book for any course on communication. Readers are supposed to have taken at least
two junior-level courses, one on signals and systems and another one on probability and random
Adapting Information and Communication Technologies for Effective Education addresses ICT assessment in universities, student satisfaction in management information system programs, factors that impact the successful implementation of a laptop program, student learning and electronic portfolios, and strategic planning for e-learning. Providing innovative research on several fundamental technology-based initiatives, this book will make a valuable addition to every reference library.
A technology is only a tool.
No matter how creative its design, innovative its approach, or impressive its performance,
a technology is still defined (according to Webster) as “a manner of accomplishing
The successful adoption of a technology into the community of those who rely on it
to conduct business is a complicated journey—one that starts with the unyielding
work of designers who see something that others don’t.
The field of marketing communications is ever-changing. Brand managers continually
attempt to gain advantage over competitors and endeavor to achieve larger
market shares and profits for the brands they manage. Marketing communications,
or marcom, is just one element of the marketing mix, but advertising, promotions,
marketing-oriented public relations, and other marcom tools perform
increasingly important roles in firms’ quests to achieve financial and nonfinancial
Ultra-Wideband Radio (UWB) earmarks a new radio access philosophy and exploits several GHz of bandwidth. It promises high data rate communication over short distances as well as innovative radar sensing and localization applications with unprecedented resolution. Fields of application may be found, among others, in industry, civil engineering, surveillance and exploration, for security and safety measures, and even for medicine.
This document lists Java coding recommendations common in the Java development community.
The recommendations are based on established standards (see for instance , , ,  and ) as well as feedback from
a huge number of software professionals around the world.
Main drawback with existing guidelines is that these guides are far too general in their

Synopsis by Rebecca Rohan Professional Java developers who've come as far as they can without exploiting threads will find their skills bumped up a few notches by the time they finish Paul Hyde's Java Thread Programming. In a five-and-a-half-page first chapter, the book gives a basic concept briefing, then gets down to business with an example-rich education from the starting thread through inter-thread communication, thread groups, thread pooling, threads and Swing, and more.
The goals of PC networking have been expanding over the last few years—from simple
file and printer sharing to access of fax machines, modems, and enterprise-wide electronic
mail systems. All the while, the essential goals of networking have always been to
share resources and to provide a medium for communications.
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is the easiest way to produce and consume Web services on the Microsoft platform. With .NET 3.5, WCF has been extensively revamped--and Visual Studio 2008 gives developers powerful new tools for utilizing it. Essential Windows Communication Foundation shows developers exactly how to make the most of WCF with .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008.
