Although social learning is something that we have always done, it has often been ignored or misunderstood by the training industry. Now, however, the proliferation of social tools makes this a... More > powerful way to improve workplace performance. When we consider what social learning means inside an organization, it’s not just adding social media to instructional programmes or letting people interact with one another.

Learning in today’s networked workplace is not just being trained to do a task, but about learning with and from one another as we face new challenges.

Introduction to Computer Organization ebook By Robert G. Plantz

Download immediately.
Also available in paperback version. Uses x86-64 (AMD/Intel) assembly language to introduce computer organization. Emphasis is on software; includes two chapters on hardware design. Intended... More > primarily for a first- or second-year college course but could also be used by professional programmers as an "introduction to the manuals." The approach is not to teach how to program in assembly language but to describe what is going on at the assembly language level when writing in a high level language. Based on the 64-bit mode. Each concept is introduced with C/C++ constructs followed by a discussion of the assembly language implementation. Assumes that the reader already knows basic programming concepts in a high-level language and builds on that. Uses GNU/Linux, which allows a clear connection between C/C++ and assembly language. C Standard Library is used for I/O instead of supplying special routines. Full table of contents and sample chapters at< Less
A Hands-On Introduction to Using Python in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences By Johnny Wei-Bing Lin
eBook (PDF): $5.00

Python is a modern computer language whose use in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences (AOS) is growing by leaps and bounds. Yet, while many excellent resources exist for learning Python, there have... More > not been any resources specifically written for the AOS user. This book is a hands-on introduction to Python written for AOS researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates who are new to Python (seasoned Python users will find the book of limited use). It focuses not on computer science but on how Python can help AOS users do AOS work. It is not a reference manual but a mini-course. We take a gentle approach to learning Python but do not aim to teach programming; readers should already know the basics of programming in another language. A black-and-white print version of this book is also available from the Lulu Marketplace.

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
