Ry's Git Tutorial

Git is a free version control system known for its speed, reliability, and non-linear development model. Its popularity among open-source developers makes Git a necessary tool for professional programmers, but it can also do wonders for your personal coding workflow. You’ll be able to experiment with new ideas, radically refactor existing code, and efficiently share changes with other developers—all without the slightest worry towards breaking your project.This comprehensive guide will walk you through the entire Git library, writing code and executing commands every step of the way. You'll create commits, revert snapshots, navigate branches, communicate with remote repositories, and experience core Git concepts first-hand.Designed for newcomers to distributed development, Ry's Git Tutorial presents this complex subject in simple terms that anyone can understand. Beginner and veteran programmers alike will find this book to be a fun, fast, and friendly introduction to Git-based revision control.

Elements of Robotics

This open access book bridges the gap between playing with robots in school and studying robotics at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only mathematics known by high-school and first-year college students, such as calculus, matrices and probability. Concepts and algorithms are explained through detailed diagrams and calculations.Elements of Robotics presents an overview of different types of robots and the components used to build robots, but focuses on robotic algorithms: simple algorithms like odometry and feedback control, as well as algorithms for advanced topics like localization, mapping, image processing, machine learning and swarm robotics. These algorithms are demonstrated in simplified contexts that enable detailed computations to be performed and feasible activities to be posed. Students who study these simplified demonstrations will be well prepared for advanced study of robotics.The algorithms are presented at a relatively abstract level, not tied to any specific robot. Instead a generic robot is defined that uses elements common to most educational robots: differential drive with two motors, proximity sensors and some method of displaying output to the user.The theory is supplemented with over 100 activities, most of which can be successfully implemented using inexpensive educational robots. Activities that require more computation can be programmed on a computer. Archives are available with suggested implementations for the Thymio robot and standalone programs in Python.

C Programming: Language: A Step by Step Beginner's Guide to Learn C Programming in 7 Days

Are You Ready To Learn C?C Programming Language introduces you to the most commonly used programming language, one that has been the basis for many other versions over the years. It is a great book, not just for beginning programmers, but also for computer users who would want to have an idea what is happening behind the scenes as they work with various computer programs.In this book, you are going to learn what the C programming language entails, how to write conditions, expressions, statements and even commands, for the language to perform its functions efficiently. You will learn too how to organize relevant expressions so that after compilation and execution, the computer returns useful results and not error messages. Additionally, this book details the data types that you need for the C language and how to present it as well.Simply put, this is a book for programmers, learners taking other computer courses, and other computer users who would like to be versed with the workings of the most popular computer language, C.In this book You'll learn:What Is The C Language?Setting Up Your Local EnvironmentThe C Structure and Data TypeC Constants and LiteralsC Storage ClassesMaking Decisions In C The Role Of Loops In C ProgrammingFunctions in C ProgrammingStructures and Union in CBit Fields and Typedef Within C.C Header Files and Type CastingBenefits Of Using The C Language...and much more!!Download your copy today! click the BUY button and download it right now!

An Introduction to APIs

Have you ever wondered how Facebook is able to automatically display your Instagram photos? How about how Evernote syncs notes between your computer and smartphone? If so, then it’s time to get excited!In this book, we walk you through what it takes for companies to link their systems together. We start off easy, defining some of the tech lingo you may have heard before, but didn’t fully understand. From there, each lesson introduces something new, slowly building up to the point where you are confident about what an API is and, for the brave, could actually take a stab at using one.

Programming for Computations - Python: A Gentle Introduction to Numerical Simulations with Python (Texts in Computational Science and Engineering Book 15)

This book presents computer programming as a key method for solving mathematical problems. There are two versions of the book, one for MATLAB and one for Python. The book was inspired by the Springer book TCSE 6: A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python (by Langtangen), but the style is more accessible and concise, in keeping with the needs of engineering students. The book outlines the shortest possible path from no previous experience with programming to a set of skills that allows the students to write simple programs for solving common mathematical problems with numerical methods in engineering and science courses. The emphasis is on generic algorithms, clean design of programs, use of functions, and automatic tests for verification.
