Scrum Essentials: Agile Software Development and Agile Project Management for Project Managers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and Stakeholders

Create software that delivers more value Ideas are cheap. A lot of people seem to think that majority of the software development process is just creating a vague concept of an application that people might want. You've probably heard a lot of people say things like, "I have this idea for an app that'll surely reach a million downloads!" only to find their apps lost in an ocean of similar apps. Creating great software and delivering them on time requires a rather systematic but not overly rigid implementation scheme. Quality and time must go together. If you deliver software that's full of bugs or poor in user experience, you really can't expect another transaction with your client. A lot of programmers fear this outcome and instead take too long to create programs. You have a limited amount of time to create software, especially when you're given a deadline, self-imposed or not. You'll want to make sure that the software you build is at least decent but more importantly, on time. How do you balance quality with time? This book dives into these very important topics. After reading Scrum Essentials you will know about scrum roles, sprints, scrum artifacts, and much more. Here is what you will learn by reading Scrum Essentials What the Waterfall Method is and why you should't be using this method to run your software projects What Scrum is, where it came from, why you should use it, and how you can put it practical use in your organization today The difference between Scrum and agile software development The various Scrum roles including the product owner, the Scrum master, and the team members What Sprints are and how to plan them.

Angular 4: From Theory To Practice: Build the web applications of tomorrow using the new Angular web framework from Google.

*Updated to the Angular 4 released in March 2017*

After reading this book, you are going to be able to:-

- Understand the latest features of ES6 JavaScript and TypeScript.

- Build an Angular 2 application from scratch using TypeScript and the Angular command line interface.

- Write code using the paradigm of reactive programming with RxJS and Observables.

- Know how to Unit Test Angular 2 using Jasmine, Karma and the Angular Test Bed

The first chapter in the course is a quickstart where you dive straight into writing your first Angular 2 application. We use the web editor plunker so you can get stuck in writing code ASAP.

In this quickstart you'll get a 50,000 foot view of the major features of Angular 2.

Then chapter by chapter we go much deeper into each of these features. I'll cover the theory for that feature, using plunker as much as possible so you can try out the code yourself in a browser. Then you'll practice what you've learnt with either an online quiz or a set of flash cards.

You are going to learn all about:-

- Typescript & ES6 Javascript.

- Components & Binding

- Directives

- Dependancy Injection & Services

- Angular Modules & Bootstrapping your Angular application.

- SPAs & Routing

- Angular CLI

- Forms

- Reactive Programming with RXJs

- HTTP

- Unit Testing

The ideal student is an existing web developer, with some JavaScript knowledge that wants to add Angular 2 to their skill set. Or perhaps you are an existing Angular 1 developer who wants to level up to Angular 2.

You do need to be comfortable with at least the ES5 version of JavaScript. We'll be using a UI framework called twitter bootstrap throughout the course but you still must know HTML and some CSS.

1.The Entry Rules are simple, clear, and systematic. You don't need to look for subjective patterns (head and shoulders, wedges, triangles, etc.). You don't even need to pay attention to the news. You get a signal, you enter!

2.The Exit Rules are also simple. Once your trades are on, you can manage them with a set of contingent orders. This puts the trades on "autopilot" and keeps trade management to a minimum.

3.Your risk is always capped. So you know exactly how much you stand to lose on any given trade, which is essential if you want to manage your risk effectively.

4. And the best part is that The Rainmaker Strategy can be used on any budget! You do not need $50, 000 to start. You do not even need $4,000! You could theoretically start with $500 and attempt to grow that slowly.

You'll see how and why!





But Wait! Before you click the buy button...

Do NOT buy this book IF you are looking For the "Holy Grail." Get this through your mind: There isn't any! When trading The Rainmaker, there will be losses! Losses are part of our business. The good news is that the strategy is viable over large samples of trades.

Do NOT buy this book IF you're completely new to trading. This book is NOT an introduction to trading. You should have a basic understanding of stocks, options, indicators, how to open a trading account, configure charts, etc. There are lots of free and exceptional resources online that can help you with that (tradingwithrayner.com is one of them).

I'm telling you this to save you time - but also to save myself from a potentially negative review.

Around The World, Day Trading The SPY is not promising you financial freedom. But if you use The Rainmaker Strategy as outlined in this book, and if you work on mastering it, you will put the odds in your favor with a proven trading strategy.

Zero To Hero

I don't have anything extraordinary. I am the typical guy that no one pays attention to because he's so discreet. I wasn't blessed with an amazing physique, nor am I endowed with an above average intelligence. I am just a regular guy, admittedly with a painful past, but a regular guy nonetheless. I don't possess any special talents; yet, I am able to return consistent profits, year after year, in an endeavor where most people fail.

My name is Yvan Byeajee, I am a trader. Not the kind you see in the movies - those who partake in lavish lifestyles; snort lines of coke off of some hooker's behind; or threaten the very health of our economy - no, I am more modest than that. And I have my reasons. Durable success in the markets is the only logical outcome of the kind of consistency you cultivate in your day-to-day life. It's also a function of your ability to tame that voice in your head that is constantly nagging at you and forcing you to make poor decisions, whether in the markets or in your personal life.

After having lost everything in the markets because of my inability to calm that inner voice, I knew I had to make some changes. Eventually, I stumbled upon an effective way to calm the zoo that is my mind, something I always assumed to be either impossible or useless. For the price of a cocktail, in this short book, you will learn the secret to my success in the markets! I will show you the one exercise that I think all traders should be doing on a daily basis. This exercise has not only changed my trading, but it has also changed my life - and I am confident it can change yours as well!

How to become a programmer?

The image of a geek - an awkward introvert in an elongated sweatshirt, which reads comic books and is well versed in science - is actively popularized in society. "Smart is the new sexy", - said Howard from the series "The Big Bang Theory" almost 10 years ago. Since that time, oil has only been poured into the furnace - Mark Zuckerberg, who wears sandals on socks, and Sergey Brin, flaunting in Crocs, have become symbols of the generation. They are equal, they are envious. It's no longer a shame to be a botanist, even the opposite - it's embarrassing to be stupid. The apogee of this image is those who are called coders, developers or Software Engineers - programmers.

Popularity is explained by the importance of the profession for society. While actors and musicians influence the mood of people, programmers directly change their lives. Remember the world before Uber, Airbnb or Google. Remember it before PayPal, eBay and Facebook. And this is just something that people face directly and regularly.

The importance of the profession puts it on a par with the astronauts and scientists, close to the superheroes of comics.

100 TIPS TO THE BEGINNING PHOTOGRAPHER ON EVERY DAY: Practical recommendations on the art of photography

100 TIPS TO THE BEGINNING PHOTOGRAPHER

ON EVERY DAY

Practical recommendations on the art of photography

This book includes practical tips for photographers.

Today, a photographer - what is there to hide - every second becomes: these are the ladies on maternity leave, and taxi drivers, and many others. In the abundant information flow imposed by fashion vivid pictures, many young photographers with good creative potential are lost.

My book is a set of recommendations of both a technical and ethical nature, which also reveals a number of secrets that the author has little by little gathered together, based on his own experience or the experience of distinguished photographers. I hope to convey to the person who took the camera in hand, the idea that photography is a kind of art that deserves respect, understanding and knowledge.

Building Cloud Apps with Microsoft Azure: Best Practices for DevOps, Data Storage, High Availability, and More (Developer Reference)

This ebook walks you through a patterns-based approach to building real-world cloud solutions. The patterns apply to the development process as well as to architecture and coding practices. The content is based on a presentation developed by Scott Guthrie and delivered by him at the Norwegian Developers Conference (NDC) in June of 2013 (part 1, part 2), and at Microsoft Tech Ed Australia in September 2013 (part 1, part 2). Many others updated and augmented the content while transitioning it from video to written form.

Who should read this book

Developers who are curious about developing for the cloud, are considering a move to the cloud, or are new to cloud development will find here a concise overview of the most important concepts and practices they need to know. The concepts are illustrated with concrete examples, and each chapter includes links to other resources that provide more in-depth information.

What is DevOps?

Have we entered the age of NoOps infrastructures? Hardly. Old-style system administrators may be disappearing in the face of automation and cloud computing, but operations have become more significant than ever. As this O'Reilly Radar Report explains, we're moving into a more complex arrangement known as "DevOps."

Mike Loukides, O'Reilly's VP of Content Strategy, provides an incisive look into this new world of operations, where IT specialists are becoming part of the development team. In an environment with thousands of servers, these specialists now write the code that maintains the infrastructure. Even applications that run in the cloud have to be resilient and fault tolerant, need to be monitored, and must adjust to huge swings in load. That was underscored by Amazon's EBS outage last year.

From the discussions at O'Reilly's Velocity Conference, it's evident that many operations specialists are quickly adapting to the DevOps reality. But as a whole, the industry has just scratched the surface. This report tells you why.

Building a DevOps Culture

DevOps is as much about culture as it is about tools

When people talk about DevOps, they often emphasize configuration management systems, source code repositories, and other tools. But, as Mandi Walls explains in this Velocity report, DevOps is really about changing company culture--replacing traditional development and operations silos with collaborative teams of people from both camps.

The DevOps movement has produced some efficient teams turning out better products faster. The tough part is initiating the change. This report outlines strategies for managers looking to go beyond tools to build a DevOps culture among their technical staff.

Topics include:

Documenting reasons for changing to DevOps before you commitDefining meaningful and achievable goalsFinding a technical leader to be an evangelist, tools and process expert, and shepherdStarting with a non-critical but substantial pilot projectFacilitating open communication among developers, QA engineers, marketers, and other professionalsRealigning your team's responsibilities and incentivesLearning when to mediate disagreements and conflictsDownload this free report and learn how to the DevOps approach can help you create a supportive team environment built on communication, respect, and trust.

Policy-Oriented Technology Assessment Across Europe: Expanding Capacities

This book is open access under a CC-BY license. Policy-making to address grand challenges faces greater complexity than any previous project of modernization. Future scenarios are haunted by uncertainty and there is real ambivalence as to the values that policy should strive for. In this situation decision-makers look to research and innovation to provide answers and solutions. But neither can the great transitions ahead be planned by science, nor will conventional methods of innovation bring such transitions about. A turn to interactive governance is therefore underway with policy-makers and citizens becoming increasingly involved in processes of deliberating futures. Technology Assessment (TA) is the art of structuring such processes. TA goes beyond traditional expert policy analysis by systematically combining a multi-disciplinary evidence base with participatory approaches to policy deliberation. TA thus seeks to act as a hub for serious and transparent dialogue between policy, industry, science, and society about the challenges ahead and the available options for overcoming them responsibly. This volume offers an up-to-date account of the expansion of technology assessment capacities across new European member states. The contributions of this volume are written by leading European researchers and practitioners in technology assessment (TA) and are based on the PACITA (Parliaments and Civil Society in Technology Assessment) project.

Designing Great Data Products

In the past few years, we've seen many data products based on predictive modeling. These products range from weather forecasting to recommendation engines like Amazon's. Prediction technology can be interesting and mathematically elegant, but we need to take the next step: going from recommendations to products that can produce optimal strategies for meeting concrete business objectives.

We already know how to build these products: they've been in use for the past decade or so, but they're not as common as they should be. This report shows how to take the next step: to go from simple predictions and recommendations to a new generation of data products with the potential to revolutionize entire industries.

o Make sure the scene is safe before approaching the individual and conducting the BLS or ACLS Survey.

o When encountering an individual who is "down", the first assessment to make is whether they are conscious or unconscious.

o If the individual is unconscious, then start with the BLS Survey and move on to the ACLS Survey.

o If they are conscious, then start with the ACLS Survey.

Approximately, every five years, the AHA updates the guidelines for ACLS. The content contained herein is based on the most recent AHA publications on ACLS and will periodically compare previous and revised recommendations for a comprehensive review.

What Is Node?

Node.js. It's the latest in a long line of "Are you cool enough to use me?" programming languages, APIs, and toolkits. In that sense, it lands squarely in the tradition of Rails,and Ajax, and Hadoop, and even to some degree iPhone programming and HTML5.

Dig a little deeper, and you'll hear that Node.js (or, as it's more briefly called by many,simply "Node") is a server-side solution for JavaScript, and in particular, for receiving and responding to HTTP requests. If that doesn't completely boggle your mind, by the time the conversation heats up with discussion of ports, sockets, and threads, you'll tend to glaze over. Is this really JavaScript? In fact, why in the world would anyone want to run JavaScript outside of a browser, let alone the server?

The good news is that you're hearing (and thinking) about the right things. Node really is concerned with network programming and server-side request/response processing.The bad news is that like Rails, Ajax, and Hadoop before it, there's precious little clear information available. There will be, in time -- as there now is for these other "cool"frameworks that have matured -- but why wait for a book or tutorial when you might be able to use Node today, and dramatically improve the maintainability.

Antifragile Systems and Teams

How Can DevOps Make You Antifragile?

All complex computer systems eventually break, despite all of the heavy-handed, bureaucratic change-management processes we throw at them. But some systems are clearly more fragile than others, depending on how well they cope with stress. In this O'Reilly report, Dave Zwieback explains how the DevOps methodology can help make your system antifragile.

Systems are fragile when organizations are unprepared to handle changing conditions. As generalists adept at several roles, DevOps practitioners adjust more easily to the fast pace of change. Rather than attempt to constrain volatility, DevOps embraces disorder, randomness, and impermanence to make systems even better.

This concise report covers:

Why Etsy, Netflix, and other antifragile companies constantly introduce volatility to test and upgrade their systemsHow DevOps removes the schism between developers and operations, enlisting developers to deploy as well as buildUsing continual experimentation and minor failures to make critical adjustments--and discover breakthroughsHow an overreliance on measurement and automation can make systems fragileWhy sharing increases trust, collaboration, and tribal knowledgeDownload this free report and learn how the DevOps philosophy of Culture, Automation, Measurement, and Sharing makes use of changing conditions and even embarrassing mistakes to help improve your system--and your organization.Dave Zwieback has been managing large-scale, mission-critical infrastructure and teams for 17 years.

Creating Mobile Apps with Xamarin.Forms, Preview Edition (Developer Reference)

Written by programming legend Charles Petzold and created jointly by Microsoft Press and Xamarin Inc., this Preview Edition ebook is about writing applications for Xamarin.Forms, the new mobile development platform for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone unveiled by Xamarin in May 2014. Xamarin.Forms lets you write shared user-interface code in C# and XAML (the eXtensible Application Markup Language) that maps to native controls on these three platforms. (The final edition of this ebook will be published in the spring of 2015.) This ebook is for C# programmers who want to write applications for the three most popular mobile platforms--iOS, Android, and Windows Phone--with a single code base. Xamarin.Forms also has applicability for those programmers who want eventually to use C# and the Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android libraries to target the native application programming interfaces (APIs) of these platforms. Xamarin.Forms can be a big help in getting started with these platforms or in constructing a prototype or proof-of-concept application. This ebook assumes that you know C# and have some familiarity with the use of the .NET Framework. However, when it describes some C# and .NET features that might be somewhat new to recent C# programmers, the ebook adopts a somewhat slower pace. In particular, the introduction of the async keyword and await operator in Chapter 3 follows a discussion that shows how to do asynchronous programming using traditional callback methods.

Introducing Microsoft Azure HDInsight

Microsoft Azure HDInsight is Microsoft's 100 percent compliant distribution of Apache Hadoop on Microsoft Azure. This means that standard Hadoop concepts and technologies apply, so learning the Hadoop stack helps you learn the HDInsight service. At the time of this writing, HDInsight (version 3.0) uses Hadoop version 2.2 and Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0.

In Introducing Microsoft Azure HDInsight, we cover what big data really means, how you can use it to your advantage in your company or organization, and one of the services you can use to do that quickly-specifically, Microsoft's HDInsight service. We start with an overview of big data and Hadoop, but we don't emphasize only concepts in this book-we want you to jump in and get your hands dirty working with HDInsight in a practical way. To help you learn and even implement HDInsight right away, we focus on a specific use case that applies to almost any organization and demonstrate a process that you can follow along with.

We also help you learn more. In the last chapter, we look ahead at the future of HDInsight and give you recommendations for self-learning so that you can dive deeper into important concepts and round out your education on working with big data.

Big Data Now: Current Perspectives from O'Reilly Radar

This collection represents the full spectrum of data-related content we've published on O'Reilly Radar over the last year. Mike Loukides kicked things off in June 2010 with "What is data science?" and from there we've pursued the various threads and themes that naturally emerged. Now, roughly a year later, we can look back over all we've covered and identify a number of core data areas:

Data issues -- The opportunities and ambiguities of the data space are evident in discussions around privacy, the implications of data-centric industries, and the debate about the phrase "data science" itself.

The application of data: products and processes - A "data product" can emerge from virtually any domain, including everything from data startups to established enterprises to media/journalism to education and research.

Data science and data tools -- The tools and technologies that drive data science are of course essential to this space, but the varied techniques being applied are also key to understanding the big data arena.

The business of data - Take a closer look at the actions connected to data -- the finding, organizing, and analyzing that provide organizations of all sizes with the information they need to compete.

The Culture of Big Data

Technology does not exist in a vacuum. In the same way that a plant needs water and nourishment to grow, technology needs people and process to thrive and succeed. Culture (i.e., people and process) is integral and critical to the success of any new technology deployment or implementation.

Big data is not just a technology phenomenon. It has a cultural dimension. It's vitally important to remember that most people have not considered the immense difference between a world seen through the lens of a traditional relational database system and a world seen through the lens of a Hadoop Distributed File System.This paper broadly describes the cultural challenges that accompany efforts to create and sustain big data initiatives in an evolving world whose data management processes are rooted firmly in traditional data warehouse architectures.

Why AutoHotkey?: How Free AutoHotkey Adds Power to Your Windows PC and Provides You Important Brain Food (AutoHotkey Tips and Tricks Book 8)

Why AutoHotkey? is not a "how-to" book. There are plenty of other resources both in books and on the Web for that. Rather, I offer this book as a "why-to" which may stimulate you to discover how much easier AutoHotkey can make your Windows computing life. While many of the examples offered here show and discuss AutoHotkey code, they are not intended as tutorials--although people comfortable with scripting will find it easy to pick up the language. (Tip for Beginners: Start with Hotkeys and Hotstrings. They are easy to add to your PC and give you instant results.)

This book only scratches the surface of what AutoHotkey can do. Many of its capabilities, such as Windows file and folder manipulation, don't appear in this book. The depth of the capabilities of this free Windows utility language makes it impossible to include many useful applications. However, with just a little investigation, you will find much more information on the Web sparking many additional ideas for how you can use AutoHotkey. I suggest my "Free AutoHotkey Scripts and Apps for Learning Script Writing and Generating Ideas" page and the scripts page on the main AutoHotkey site.

I've broken up Why AutoHotkey? by occupation. As examples and a way to show various applications for AutoHotkey, each chapter covers one or more field of endeavor where AutoHotkey can offer assistance. By no means a complete list of occupations or possible uses for AutoHotkey, the book offers insight into AutoHotkey techniques and apps which can improve your professional (and personal) Windows computing life. However, AutoHotkey is not limited to the script I highlight here. Far from it, providing the power of most other programming languages, the free Windows scripting language is only limited by your own imagination.

o Why AutoHotkey for Learning to Program? Windows Programming Made Easy

Never programmed before? You'll find no better language for learning than AutoHotkey! Plus, it may save your intellect from precipitous decline.

o Why AutoHotkey for Writers, Bloggers, and Editors?

If you write or edit for a living (or fun) and use a Windows computer (most people do), then you should use the free AutoHotkey software.

o Why AutoHotkey for Artists and Graphic Designers?

While using AutoHotkey with Windows makes sense for most professions, it's not so obvious for artists and graphic designers.

o Why AutoHotkey for Poets?

Erstwhile multifarious poets optated for quill and parchment. Forthwith, AutoHotkey propounds the furtherance of lyrical ruminations on Windows computers.

o Why AutoHotkey for Chefs and Dieticians?

While you don't often see television chefs using computers, AutoHotkey offers guidance when cooking "Jack Stuffed Cheeseburgers" at home.

o Why AutoHotkey for Grandparents?

Remember all your grand kid's birthdays and their ages! There's no limit to the number of ways you can amuse your grandchildren with AutoHotkey. Plus, the free software gives your brain a much-needed workout!

o Why AutoHotkey for Students?

Ten reasons why every student should use the free AutoHotkey Windows tools! AutoHotkey helps you so much academically that you'll think you're cheating! Plus, it's delicious brain food and helps get you a job!

o Why AutoHotkey for Teachers and Educators?

If you and your students have access to Windows computers, then you're set! If not, well...

o Why AutoHotkey for Engineers and Scientists?

While Writing AutoHotkey scripts should be no problem for most engineers and scientist, many might be surprised by how much the free language offers in Windows tools.

o Why AutoHotkey for Internet Trolls?

If You plan on being one of the most annoying people on the web, why not make it easy on yourself?

If, after reading this book, you don't come to the conclusion that you should make AutoHotkey part of your computing life, then you don't use a Windows computer.
