Book Description
Learn the C++ programming language in a structured, straightforward, and friendly manner. This book teaches the basics of the modern C++ programming language, the C++ Standard Library, and modern C++ standards, including C++23. No previous programming experience is required.
C++ is a language like no other, surprising in its complexity, yet wonderfully sleek and elegant in so many ways. It is also a language that cannot be learned by guessing, one that is easy to get wrong and challenging to get right. To overcome this, each section is filled with real-world examples that gradually increase in complexity. Modern C++ for Absolute Beginners, Second Edition teaches more than just programming in C++23. It provides a solid C++ foundation to build upon.
The author takes you through the C++ programming language, the Standard Library, and C++11 to C++23 standard basics. Each chapter is accompanied by the right amount of theory and plenty of source code examples. You will work with C++23 features and standards, yet you will also compare and take a look into previous versions of C++.

Book Description
Every day, successful software projects scale and sustain businesses of all sizes and across all industries. Unfortunately, the reality is that many software projects still fail. The reasons behind these failures are seldom due to the underlying technology. Misunderstandings and communication barriers lead to wrong decisions, missed opportunities, communication breakdowns, or worse―huge economic loss.

In this digitally connected world, business professionals can’t afford to be hands-off on technical projects, but they also can’t be expected to have technical certifications. They have first-hand knowledge of the business processes, are subject matter experts in software requirements, and they finance the projects. Even C-level management or board members need to rapidly gain just enough understanding of technology to make mission-critical decisions for businesses to survive and flourish. In most software projects the number of non-technical stakeholders far exceeds the number of techies.

This book distills the world of software projects into simple terms and relatable metaphors for even the most technically adverse reader. Real-life examples, entertaining analogies, and hand-drawn illustrations will stick with readers throughout their own software projects, bolstering their success. Business requirements, use cases, process flows―the list goes on. It’s all broken down in this game-changing book aimed at delivering for business and tech teams what DevOps has done for developers and operations.

What You Will Learn

Know the importance of good business requirements and how to write them
Identify the most important business roles, key decisions, and critical activities involved in software projects
Strengthen collaboration between non-technical and technical teams
Grasp common software project terminology, required for non-techies
Understand the software development life cycle
Gain insight on the common software project methodologies and how they differ
Understand what software developers do at a high level

Who This Book Is For

Non-technical business professionals (such as small business owners, startup founders, or employees of a business of any size or industry) who need to secure and implement a software solution. The reader may supervise or collaborate with technical teams, and may be a (beginning) software developer looking for practical insights and better ways to communicate with business colleagues.

Book Description
Working effectively with Apple platforms at a corporate or business level includes not only infrastructure, but a mode of thinking that administrators have to adopt to find success. A mode of thinking that forces you to leave 30 years of IT dogma at the door. This book is a guide through how to integrate Apple products in your environment with a minimum of friction. Because the Apple ecosystem is not going away.

You'll start by understanding where Apple, third-party software vendors, and the IT community is taking us. What is Mobile Device Management and how does it work under the hood. By understanding how MDM works, you will understand what needs to happen on your networks in order to allow for MDM, as well as the best way to give the least amount of access to the servers or services that’s necessary. You'll then look at management agents that do not include MDM, as well as when you will need to use an agent as opposed to when to use other options. Once you can install a management solution, you can deploy profiles on a device or you can deploy profiles on Macs using scripts.

With Apple Device Management as your guide, you'll customize and package software for deployment and lock down devices so they’re completely secure. You’ll also work on getting standard QA environments built out, so you can test more effectively with less effort.

This thoroughly revised and expanded Second Edition provides new coverage and updates on daemons and agents, declarative management, Gatekeeper, script options, SSO tools, Azure/Apple Business Essentials integrations and much more.

You will
Deploy profiles across devices effectively and securely
Install apps remotely both from the app store and through custom solutions
Work natively with Apple environments rather than retrofitting older IT solutions
Who This Book Is For
Mac administrators within organizations that want to integrate with the current Apple ecosystem, including Windows administrators learning how to use/manage Macs, mobile administrators working with iPhones and iPads, and mobile developers tasked with creating custom apps for internal, corporate distribution.

Build Your Own Test Framework: A Practical Guide to Writing Better Automated Tests


Build Your Own Test Framework: A Practical Guide to Writing Better Automated Tests 1st ed. Edition

Publisher Finelybook 出版社:Apress; 1st ed. edition (March 10, 2023)
Language 语言:English
pages 页数:293 pages
ISBN-10 书号:1484292464
ISBN-13 书号:9781484292464

Book Description
Learn to write better automated tests that will dramatically increase your productivity and have fun while doing so. This book is a build-your-own adventure designed for individual reading and for collaborative workshops.
You will build an xUnit automated test framework using JavaScript: initially a clone of Jest, but adding a couple of neat features borrowed from RSpec, the genre-defining tool for behavior-driven development (BDD). Along the way, you will explore the philosophy behind automated testing best practices. The automated test runner is one of the most important innovations within software engineering. But for many programmers, automated testing remains a mystery, and knowing how to write good tests is akin to sorcery.
As the chapters of this book unfold, you will see how the humble test runner is an elegant and simple piece of software. Each chapter picks a single feature to build, like the "it" function or the "beforeEach" block. It picks apart the theory of why the feature needs to exist, and how to use it effectively in your own test suites. Every chapter ends with a set of ideas for extension points should you wish to explore further, alone or in groups. The book culminates in an implementation of test doubles and mocks―one of the most difficult and misunderstood concepts within automated testing.
By the end of the book, you will have gained a solid understanding of automated testing principles that you can immediately apply to your work projects.
What You'll Learn
Build an xUnit automated test framework
See how an automated test runner works
Understand the best practices for automated unit testing
Effectively use test doubles and mocks
Who This Book Is For

Software developers with JavaScript experience who are seeking to master the art of automated testing.
