Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship . Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code “on the fly” into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer–but only if you work at it.
This book describes the object-oriented (OO) paradigm, a development
strategy based on the concept that systems should be built from a collection
of reusable components called objects. Instead of separating data and
functionality, as is done in the structured paradigm, objects encompass
both. While the object-oriented paradigm sounds similar to the structured
paradigm, as you will see in this book, it is actually quite different.
After studying this chapter, you should be able to: Understand problem-solving concepts, formulate algorithms using pseudocode, realize the complexity writing algorithms, understand an event-driven environment, describe how classes and objects work, use and understand the terminology of the object paradigm.
Cloud Computing: Implementation, Management, and Security provides an understanding of what cloud computing really means, explores how disruptive it may become in the future, and examines its advantages and disadvantages. It gives business executives the knowledge necessary to make informed, educated decisions regarding cloud initiatives.
The authors first discuss the evolution of computing from a historical perspective, focusing primarily on advances that led to the development of cloud computing.
We believe that learning in computer science and engineering should reflect the
current state of the field, as well as introduce the principles that are shaping computing.
We also feel that readers in every specialty of computing need to appreciate
the organizational paradigms that determine the capabilities, performance, and,
ultimately, the success of computer systems.
Since the first DIISM conference, which took place 9 years ago, the world has
seen drastic changes, including the transformation of manufacturing and
engineering software, and the information and communication technologies
deployed. The conditions for manufacturing and engineering have changed on a
large scale, in terms of technology-enabled collaboration among the fields of
design, engineering, production, usage, maintenance and recycling/disposal.
These changes can be observed in rapidly-growing fields such as supply chain
Nowadays, Software Product Line (SPL) is considered to be one of the most popular
technical paradigms and emerging methodologies in developing software products.
The SPL consists of two main processes: the domain-engineering process and the
application-engineering process. Collecting software assets regarding a specific
business area falls within the domain-engineering process
The first section introduces the basic concepts of number systems, storage of numerical data, and machine arithmetic. Chapters on the Intel math unit architecture, data conversions, and the details of math unit programming establish a framework for developing routines in engineering and scientific code. The second part, entitled Application Development, covers the implementation of a C++ program and flowcharting. A tutorial on Windows programming supplies skills that allow readers to create professional quality programs.
Intellectual property protection of hardware and software artifacts is of cru-
cial importance for a number of dominating business models. Maybe even
more importantly‚ it is an elegant and challenging scientific and engineering
challenge. This book provides in detailed treatment of our newly developed
constraint-based protection paradigm for the protection of intellectual proper-
ties in VLSI CAD.
Program design of small programs is relatively simple and involves the analysis of the problem, collection of inputs, using the programming constructs within languages, devising or using established procedures and algorithms, providing data for output devices and solutions to the problem as applicable. As problems become larger and more complex, features such as subprograms, modules, formal documentation, and new paradigms such as object-oriented programming are encountered. Large programs involving thousands of line of code and more require formal software methodologies.
This was the period of significant technology advancement such as the first
automatic plain-paper copier by Xerox in 1959, and the rapid development of
computer technology. Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded Microsoft. This facilitated the
emergence of several project management software companies including Oracle in
1977. An example of a project undertaken during this phase is the Apollo project
initiated in 1960 with the objective of sending man to the moon.
Different programming languages support different styles of programming (called programming paradigms). The choice of language used is subject to many considerations, such as company policy, suitability to task, availability of third-party packages, or individual preference. Ideally, the programming language best suited for the task at hand will be selected. Trade-offs from this ideal involve finding enough programmers who know the language to build a team, the availability of compilers for that language, and the efficiency with which programs written in a given language execute.
Operating System: Chapter 12 - Operating System Design includes Paradigms, Implementation, Naming, Static Versus Dynamic Structures, Hiding the Hardware, Space-Time Trade-offs, Software team Structure, The Role of Experience.
Operating System: Chapter 7 - Multimedia Introduction to multimedia, Multimedia files, Video compression, Multimedia process scheduling, Multimedia file system paradigms, File placement, Caching, Disk scheduling for multimedia.
This subject focuses on management accounting for cost and control purposes in an organisational context. Emphasises the use of quantitative techniques and computer software including spreadsheets and presentation graphics.
Agile has become today’s dominant software development paradigm, but agile methods remain difficult to measure and improve. Essential Skills for the Agile Developer fills this gap from the bottom up, teaching proven techniques for assessing and optimizing both individual and team agile practices.

The computing world today is in the middle of a revolution: mobile clients and cloud computing have emerged as the dominant paradigms driving programming and hardware innovation today. The Fifth Edition of Computer Architecture focuses on this dramatic shift, exploring the ways in which software and technology in the cloud are accessed by cell phones, tablets, laptops, and other mobile computing devices. Each chapter includes two real-world examples, one mobile and one datacenter, to illustrate this revolutionary change....
Implementations of digital speech processing algorithms in software can be distinguished from those resulting from general-purpose algorithms basically in the type of arithmetic and the algorithmic constructs used in their realization. In addition, many speech processing algorithms are realized with Programmable Digital Signal Processors (PDSPs) as the software development target—this leads to important considerations in the languages and paradigms used to realize the algorithms.
This is a CS 2 book that presents classical data structures in an object-oriented programming (OOP) context using Java. This book also focuses on the basic principles of OOP and graphical user interface (GUI) -based programming – two paradigms essential for modern programming and problem solving. Our book is aimed principally at CS 2 students but may also be valuable to software development professionals
