As we pointed out in The Architecture of Open Source Applications, architects look at thousands of buildings during their training, and study the critiques of many more. But most software developers... More > only ever get to know a handful of programs well — usually programs they wrote themselves. This book provides you with the chance to study how 26 experienced programmers think when they are building something new.

The Architecture of Open Source Applications By Amy Brown, Greg Wilson

Architects look at thousands of buildings during their training, and study critiques of those buildings written by masters. In contrast, most software developers only ever get to know a handful of... More > large programs well — usually programs they wrote themselves — and never study the great programs of history. As a result, they repeat one another’s mistakes rather than building on one another’s successes. This book’s goal is to change that. In it, the authors of twenty-five open source applications explain how their software is structured, and why. What are each program's major components? How do they interact? And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to this book provide unique insights into how they think.< Less

This book does much more than just teaching you how to use basic tools (such as volume, panning, EQ, gates, compressors, delay, reverb, etc.) to get an OK mix. It also guides you through the...

CS Unplugged: An enrichment and extension programme for primary-aged students By Tim Bell, Ian H. Witten, Mike Fellows
Paperback: $20.00

This book shows creative ways to engage students with ideas from computer science and computational thinking without using a computer. Many of the activities involve physically moving around, and get... More > students thinking about deep issues without having to learn to program. A video preview of the activities can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOYy4kyLEHs The book was written by three computer science lecturers and two school teachers, and is based on our experience in classrooms as well as feedback from hundreds of educators over two decades. We have found that many important concepts can be taught without using a computer-in fact, sometimes the computer is just a distraction from learning. Often computer science is taught using programming first, but not every student finds this motivating, and it can be a significant barrier to getting into the really interesting ideas in computer science. So unplug your computer, and get ready to learn what computer science is really about!< Less

Salesforce Handbook By Wes Nolte, Jeff Douglas

This book is not intended to be a deep-dive on security, programming, reporting, configuration, etc. but more of a high-level overview on salesforce.com, Force.com development, tools, methodology and... More > other resources. We will not cover all aspects of salesforce.com. We wrote this book to (hopefully) become an invaluable resource for anyone new or inexperienced with the Force.com platform. For new administrators and developers coming on to the platform, we see a gaping hole in existing reference books. This book is not intended for end users or advanced developers. This book is for people somewhere in the middle; let’s say a business analyst or a new Java or .NET developer. We would like this to be the first book you pick up after your boss walks in and says, “Let’s take a look at salesforce.com and see if we can build some applications in the cloud”. This book contains the information that we wish we had when we started developing applications on Force.com.< Less

Learn a little about Unity, CMock, unit testing, design patterns, embedded software, mad-scientists, super heroes, zombies, and sloths in this half-comic half-instruction-manual mini book.
