c# sharp yellow book 2008

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Rob Miles™. This is a world of bad jokes, puns, and programming. In this book I'm going to give you a smattering of the C# programming language. If you have programmed before I'd be grateful if you'd still read the text. It is worth it just for the jokes and you may actually learn something. If you have not programmed before, do not worry.Programming is not rocket science it is, well, programming. The bad news about learning to program is that you get hit with a lot of ideas and concepts at around the same time when you start, and this can be confusing.The keys to learning programming are:Practicedo a lot of programming and force yourself to think about things from a problem solving point of viewStudy – look at programs written by other people. You can learn a lot from studying code which other folk have created. Figuring out how somebody else did the job is a great starting point for your solution. And remember that in many cases there is no bestsolution, just ones which are better in a particular context, i.e. the fastest, the smallest, the easiest to use etc.Persistencewriting programs is hard work. And you have to work hard at it. The principle reason why most folks don't make it as programmers is that they give up. Not because they are stupid. However, don't get too persistent. If you haven't solved a programming problem in 30 minutes you should call time out and seek help. Or at least walk away from the problem and come back to it. Staying up all night trying to sort out a problem is not a good plan. It just makes you all irritable in the morning. We will cover what to do when it all goes wrong later in these notes.

Java Enterprise Best Practices

Product Description

Java developers typically go through four "stages" in mastering Java. In the first stage, they learn the language itself. In the second stage, they study the APIs. In the third stage, they become proficient in the environment. It is in the fourth stage --"the expert stage"-- where things really get interesting, and Java Enterprise Best Practices is the tangible compendium of experience that developers need to breeze through this fourth and final stage of Enterprise Java mastery. Crammed with tips and tricks, Java Enterprise Best Practices distills years of solid experience from eleven experts in the J2EE environment into a practical, to-the-point guide to J2EE.
Java Enterprise Best Practices gives developers the unvarnished, expert-tested advice that the man pages don't provide--what areas of the APIs should be used frequently (and which are better avoided); elegant solutions to problems you face that other developers have already discovered; what things you should always do, what things you should consider doing, and what things you should never do--even if the documentation says it's ok. Until Java Enterprise Best Practices, Java developers in the fourth stage of mastery relied on the advice of a loose-knit community of fellow developers, time-consuming online searches for examples or suggestions for the immediate problem they faced, and tedious trial-and-error. But Java has grown to include a huge number of APIs, classes, and methods. Now it is simply too large for even the most intrepid developer to know it all. The need for a written compendium of J2EE Best Practices has never been greater. Java Enterprise Best Practices focuses on the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) APIs. The J2EE APIs include such alphabet soup acronyms as EJB, JDBC, RMI, XML, and JMX.

Designing Large Scale LANs

Amazon.com Review

Large networks are complex systems, with many interdependent devices held together only by the strength of the network designer's specifications. It takes a lot of knowledge--and a lot of time--to make sure that the capacity of links and nodes is neither wasted nor overloaded. Designing Large-Scale LANs explains how the pieces of a large local area network (LAN) interoperate. A LAN, in author Kevin Dooley's working definition here, is a building-size data network, or perhaps a campus-size system with a backbone running Gigabit Ethernet, ATM, or FDDI. Dooley does a good job of teaching his readers about, for example, the processing overhead involved in address translation or protocol tunneling, and why techniques like those should be used sparingly in a LAN that needs to be fast and efficient.

That said, Dooley spends a lot of time on network fundamentals. He explains subnet masking in his own rather appealing way, and takes readers on a tour of the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) seven-layer model. He explains the function of split horizon and poison reverse in Routing Information Protocol (RIP), as well as the improvements more modern routing protocols make on RIP. In short, there's an awful lot of background information here. Designers of big networks need to understand this stuff, but you might expect to see comparisons of competing vendors' equipment here--there's not enough of that--and less broad, conceptual information. On the other hand, you could do far worse than to study this book in preparation for a networking certification exam. --David Wall

Topics covered: How to design a resilient, fast, and efficient local area network (LAN). Vendor-neutral to a fault, this book explains the relative merits of LAN media and topologies, and goes into detail on how to design an addressing scheme for routing efficiency. An appendix on the mathematics of combining probabilities (e.g., the probability that both this router and that switch will fail at the same time) is a nice touch.

Data-driven Block Ciphers for Fast Telecommunication Systems

Product Description

The Most Progressive and Complete Guide to DDO-Based Ciphers
Developers have long recognized that ciphers based on Permutation Networks (PNs) and Controlled Substitution-Permutation Networks (CSPNs) allow for the implementation of a variety of Data Driven Operations (DDOs). These DDOs can provide fast encryption without incurring excessive hardware costs in modern telecommunication networks. However, until now, with a few exceptions, most DDO-based ciphers have been poorly represented in available literature and have continued to remain known to only a small number of encryption experts.

In Data-Driven Block Ciphers for Fast Telecommunication Systems, Nikolai Moldovyan and Alexander Moldovyan, major innovators and holders of several dozen international patents in encryption technology, provide the background and detail the applications needed to investigate new properties of PNs especially relevant to the improvement of modern wireless systems.Furthermore, they propose a universal architecture involving controlled bit permutation instruction that will permit the performance of both data-driven permutations and an arbitrary prescribed fixed permutation in a single cycle.
Immediately improved efficiency for current and future fast telecommunication systems and mobile networks
Because of its simplicity and efficient use of current hardware, the embedding of this architecture is a highly attractive option for CPU manufacturers.By detailing all the relevant information into a single volume for the first time, the authors of this book make that option more feasible than ever before.
