<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>

<p>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> </p> <p>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>

<p>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.</p><p></p><p>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. </p><p></p><p>With <i>Apple Device Management</i> 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. </p><p>Apple is forging their own path in IT. They trade spots with Amazon, Google, and Microsoft as the wealthiest company to ever exist. And they will not be constrained by 30 or more years of dogma in the IT industry. You can try to shoehorn Apple devices into outdated modes of device management, or you can embrace Apple’s stance on management with the help of this book.</p><b>What You'll Learn</b><ul><li>Deploy profiles across devices effectively and securely<br /></li><li>Install apps remotely both from the app store and through custom solutions<br /></li><li>Work natively with Apple environments rather than retrofitting older IT solutions<br /></li></ul><b>Who This Book Is For</b><p>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.</p>

Be online without leaving a trace. 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. <br /><br /> Reading this book, you will learn everything from password protection and smart Wi-Fi usage to advanced techniques designed to maximize your anonymity. Kevin Mitnick knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening. <br /><br /> 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 the expert on the subject of computer security. Invisibility isn't just for superheroes; privacy is a power you deserve and need in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.

<b>You got an Apple Watch! Yea! But how on Earth do you use it?!</b><i> <br />The Apple Watch looks pretty snazzy, right? People have told you all about the cool features: like if you fall it will automatically call for help! They've told you about how you can send a text from your wrist. How you can even make a phone call.</i><br /><br />That's all great. But how do you actually use it?!<br /><br />As amazing as all the new features are, it's not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrating initial experience.<br /><br />It looks nothing like the iPhone or iPad interface you are used to--except for a handful of icons. If you are lost and don't have a lot of time to comb through thousands of pages of tech-speak just to learn how to use a watch, then this book is for you! <b><br />Some of the many topics included:</b><ul><li><b>What's the difference between all of the "Series"</b></li><li><b>What's new to WatchOS 6</b></li><li><b>Using watch gestures</b></li><li><b>Apple Pay</b></li><li><b>How to change watch Faces</b></li><li><b>Sending messages and making phone calls</b></li><li><b>Using the calendar</b></li><li><b>Using reminders</b></li><li><b>Driving directions</b></li><li><b>Playing music</b></li><li><b>Checking the weather</b></li><li><b>Updating and reseting the watch</b></li><li><b>Best apps</b></li><li><b>Connecting AirPods</b></li><li><b>And much, much more!</b></li></ul>This book is based on the book "The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Apple Watch Series 5" but includes sections specifically for seniors (including accessibility features that make text easier to see).<br /><br />Are you ready to start enjoying your new Apple Watch?
