<P style="MARGIN: 0px">Few books on software project management have been as influential and timeless as<B> The Mythical Man-Month</B>. With a blend of software engineering facts and thought-provoking opinions, Fred Brooks offers insight for anyone managing complex projects. These essays draw from his experience as project manager for the IBM System/360 computer family and then for OS/360, its massive software system. Now, 20 years after the initial publication of his book, Brooks has revisited his original ideas and added new thoughts and advice, both for readers already familiar with his work and for readers discovering it for the first time.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"> </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">The added chapters contain (1) a crisp condensation of all the propositions asserted in the original book, including Brooks' central argument in <B>The Mythical Man-Month: </B>that large programming projects suffer management problems different from small ones due to the division of labor; that the conceptual integrity of the product is therefore critical; and that it is difficult but possible to achieve this unity; (2) Brooks' view of these propositions a generation later; (3) a reprint of his classic 1986 paper "No Silver Bullet"; and (4) today's thoughts on the 1986 assertion, "There will be no silver bullet within ten years."</P>

<div><p>Distributed systems have become more fine-grained in the past 10 years, shifting from code-heavy monolithic applications to smaller, self-contained microservices. But developing these systems brings its own set of headaches. With lots of examples and practical advice, this book takes a holistic view of the topics that system architects and administrators must consider when building, managing, and evolving microservice architectures.</p><p>Microservice technologies are moving quickly. Author Sam Newman provides you with a firm grounding in the concepts while diving into current solutions for modeling, integrating, testing, deploying, and monitoring your own autonomous services. You’ll follow a fictional company throughout the book to learn how building a microservice architecture affects a single domain.</p><ul><li>Discover how microservices allow you to align your system design with your organization’s goals</li><li>Learn options for integrating a service with the rest of your system</li><li>Take an incremental approach when splitting monolithic codebases</li><li>Deploy individual microservices through continuous integration</li><li>Examine the complexities of testing and monitoring distributed services</li><li>Manage security with user-to-service and service-to-service models</li><li>Understand the challenges of scaling microservice architectures</li></ul></div>

<strong>Be online without leaving a trace.</strong><br /><br />Your every step online is being tracked and stored, and your identity literally stolen. Big companies and big governments want to know and exploit what you do, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.<br /><br />In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick uses true-life stories to show exactly what is happening without your knowledge, teaching you "the art of invisibility"--online and real-world tactics to protect you and your family, using easy step-by-step instructions. Reading this book, you will learn everything from password protection and smart Wi-Fi usage to advanced techniques designed to maximize your anonymity. <br /><br />Kevin Mitnick knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening. The world's most famous--and formerly the US government's most wanted--computer hacker, he has hacked into some of the country's most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now Mitnick is reformed and widely regarded as <em>the</em> expert on the subject of computer security. <br /><br />Invisibility isn't just for superheroes--privacy is a power you deserve and need in the age of Big Brother and Big Data. <br />

<P>The demands of increasingly complex embedded systems and associated performance computations have resulted in the development of heterogeneous computing architectures that often integrate several types of processors, analog and digital electronic components, and mechanical and optical components—all on a single chip. As a result, now the most prominent challenge for the design automation community is to efficiently plan for such heterogeneity and to fully exploit its capabilities.<BR><BR>A compilation of work from internationally renowned authors, <STRONG>Model-Based Design for Embedded Systems</STRONG> elaborates on related practices and addresses the main facets of heterogeneous model-based design for embedded systems, including the current state of the art, important challenges, and the latest trends. Focusing on computational models as the core design artifact, this book presents the cutting-edge results that have helped establish model-based design and continue to expand its parameters.<BR><BR>The book is organized into three sections: <EM>Real-Time and Performance Analysis in Heterogeneous Embedded Systems</EM>, <EM>Design Tools and Methodology for Multiprocessor System-on-Chip</EM>, and <EM>Design Tools and Methodology for Multidomain Embedded Systems</EM>. The respective contributors share their considerable expertise on the automation of design refinement and how to relate properties throughout this refinement while enabling analytic and synthetic qualities. They focus on multi-core methodological issues, real-time analysis, and modeling and validation, taking into account how optical, electronic, and mechanical components often interface. <BR><BR>Model-based design is emerging as a solution to bridge the gap between the availability of computational capabilities and our inability to make full use of them yet. This approach enables teams to start the design process using a high-level model that is gradually refined through abstraction levels to ultimately yield a prototype. When executed well, model-based design encourages enhanced performance and quicker time to market for a product. Illustrating a broad and diverse spectrum of applications such as in the automotive aerospace, health care, consumer electronics, this volume provides designers with practical, readily adaptable modeling solutions for their own practice.</P>
