    Abstract: With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the authors' raw and unedited content as they write—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. This book will enable you to apply graph thinking to solve complex problems. If you want to learn how to build architectures for extracting value for your domain’s complex problems, then this book is for you. You’ll learn how to think about your data as a graph, and how to determine if graph technology is right for your application. The book describes techniques for scalable, real-time, and multimodel architectures that solve complex problems, and shows how companies are successfully applying graph thinking in distributed production environments. Authors Denise Koessler Gosnell and Matthias Broecheler also introduce the Graph Schema Language, a set of terminology and visual illustrations to normalize how graph practitioners communicate conceptual graph models, graph schema, and graph database design.

    Abstract: As Python continues to grow in popularity, projects are becoming larger and more complex. Many Python developers are now taking an interest in high-level software architecture patterns such as hexagonal/clean architecture, event-driven architecture, and strategic patterns prescribed by domain-driven design (DDD). But translating those patterns into Python isn’t always straightforward. With this practical guide, Harry Percival and Bob Gregory from MADE.com introduce proven architectural design patterns to help Python developers manage application complexity. Each pattern is illustrated with concrete examples in idiomatic Python that explain how to avoid some of the unnecessary verbosity of Java and C# syntax. You’ll learn how to implement each of these patterns in a Pythonic way. Architectural design patterns include: Dependency inversion, and its links to ports and adapters (hexagonal/clean architecture) Domain-driven design’s distinction between entities, value objects, and aggregates Repository and Unit of Work patterns for persistent storage Events, commands, and the message bus Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) Event-driven architecture and reactive microservices

    Abstract: This book presents a new approach to risk management that enables executives to think systematically and strategically about future risks and deal proactively with threats to their competitive advantages in an ever more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. Organizations typically manage risks through traditional tools such as insurance and risk mitigation; some employ enterprise risk management, which looks at risk holistically throughout the organization. But these tools tend to focus organizational attention on past actions and compliance. Executives need to tackle risk head-on as an integral part of their strategic planning process, not by looking in the rearview mirror. Strategic Risk Management (SRM) is a forward-looking approach that helps teams anticipate events or exposures that fundamentally threaten or enhance a firm's position. The authors, experts in both business strategy and risk management, define strategic risks and show how they differ from operational risks. They offer a road map that describes architectural elements of SRM (knowledge, principles, structures, and tools) to show how leaders can integrate them to effectively design and implement a future-facing SRM program. SRM gives organizations a competitive advantage over those stuck in outdated risk management practices. For the first time, it enables them to look squarely out the front windshield.

    Abstract: When those we elect descend into partisan tribalism, criminal malfeasance, and emulation of foreign autocracies and oligarchies, Cedric Alexander says it is the unelected apolitical "fourth branch" of government—our nation's public servants, civil servants, and first responders—who must save the nation. Alexander, a former deputy mayor, police chief, and CNN commentator, argues that these people do not constitute a nefarious "deep state" pursuing a hidden agenda. They are the analysts, scientists, lawyers, accountants, educators, consultants, enforcers of regulations, and first responders of every kind who keep the country running and its people safe. Alexander recounts the evolution of the professional civil service as an antidote to widespread cronyism, offers examples of how it has served as a bulwark against powerful corrupting influences, and describes the role it can play in bringing our badly divided society together. To the general public, many of these 22 million people remain invisible and their contributions hidden. But now is the time to make the invisible visible.

    Abstract: If you’re among the Python developers put off by Asyncio’s complexity, it’s time to take another look. Asyncio is complicated because it aims to solve problems in concurrent network programming for both framework developers and end-user developers like you. The features you need to consider are a small subset of the whole Asyncio API, but picking out the right features is the tricky part. That’s where this practical book comes in. Veteran Python developer Caleb Hattingh helps end-user developers gain a basic understanding of Asyncio’s building blocks—enough to get you started writing simple event-based programs. You’ll learn why Asyncio offers a safer alternative to preemptive multitasking (threading) and how this API provides a simple way to support thousands of simultaneous socket connections. Get a critical comparison of Asyncio and threading for concurrent network programming Take an Asyncio walkthrough, including a quickstart guide to help you hit the ground looping with event-based programming Learn the difference between Asyncio features for end-user developers and those for framework developers Understand Asyncio’s new async/await language syntax, including coroutines and task and future APIs Get detailed case studies (with code) of some popular Asyncio-compatible third-party libraries

    Abstract: Operators are a way of packaging, deploying, and managing Kubernetes applications. A Kubernetes application doesn’t just run on Kubernetes; it’s composed and managed in Kubernetes terms. Operators add application-specific operational knowledge to a Kubernetes cluster, making it easier to automate complex, stateful applications and to augment the platform. Operators can coordinate application upgrades seamlessly, react to failures automatically, and streamline repetitive maintenance like backups. Think of Operators as site reliability engineers in software. They work by extending the Kubernetes control plane and API, helping systems integrators, cluster administrators, and application developers reliably deploy and manage key services and components. Using real-world examples, authors Jason Dobies and Joshua Wood demonstrate how to use Operators today and how to create Operators for your applications with the Operator Framework and SDK. Learn how to establish a Kubernetes cluster and deploy an Operator Examine a range of Operators from usage to implementation Explore the three pillars of the Operator Framework: the Operator SDK, the Operator Lifecycle Manager, and Operator Metering Build Operators from the ground up using the Operator SDK Build, package, and run an Operator in development, testing, and production phases Learn how to distribute your Operator for installation on Kubernetes clusters

    Abstract: Can a system ever truly be considered reliable if it isn't fundamentally secure? In two previous O'Reilly books, experts from Google showed how reliability is fundamental to service design. Site Reliability Engineering and The Site Reliability Workbook demonstrated how and why a commitment to the entire service lifecycle enables organizations to successfully build, deploy, monitor, and maintain software systems. Security is also crucial to the design and operation of scalable systems in production, as it plays an important part in product quality, performance, reliability, and availability. In a world where most products are connected to the internet, and with cloud technologies and machine learning becoming more prevalent, enabling security by default is increasingly important. This book shares best practices to help an organization of any size design scalable and reliable systems that are fundamentally secure. It also offers insights into how teams across an organization can collaborate on security and reliability. Specifically, you'll learn about: Design Strategies Implementation and Operations Preparing for the Worst: Detection and Response Scaling Security and the Organization

    Abstract: Miniservices provide a valuable middle ground between monoliths and microservices. As Nicholas Keune explains in this report, miniservices are suited for application landscapes involving data-intensive workloads that span monoliths and microservices or cross the traditional boundaries of a service context. Drawn from the work of many development teams, the report gives a model and language to data-centric system attributes so that they can be considered more proactively in the design discussion. Combining monolithic corporate or third-party systems with microservices requires a design pattern to balance both local and global aspects of the data lifecycle. The approach advocated here, called a data discourse , is both flexible and bounded by guiding principles that help bring data discussions into early architectural conversations. Using real-world experiences and use cases, the report focuses on three of the most commonly observed attributes in a miniservice: consistency, transactionality, and proximity. The examples illustrate how design discussions about data discourses lead to miniservice creation, and how miniservices help solve otherwise difficult architectural challenges. With this report, you’ll learn: What miniservices are and how they offer solutions to challenges What data discourses are and how to use them How data discourses and miniservices help shift design discussions around data

    Abstract: 5+ Hours of Video Instruction Web applications of today are becoming increasingly more complex. Our apps commonly need to request data from various sources and handle rich user interactions, which can become difficult to keep track of as our apps scale. Luckily, if you are using the React framework, there are many ways to solve these problems. React has emerged as the industry standard for JavaScript frameworks. With more than 3 million weekly downloads from the NPM package manager—and heavy usage by leading companies such as Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Twitter and so many more—React is a leading framework. Learn how to unlock the power of React with the Redux library to provide creative solutions and highly flexible web components. In larger applications, many developers and teams lean on Flux-style architectures, such as those implemented by the Redux library, which have proven to be highly scalable and easily testable.

    Abstract: While AI is brilliantly placed to solve decisions that are concrete and well-defined, in other contexts it can fail spectacularly, showing connections between facts or events but stumbling when the need to disentangle cause from correlation arises. Human input in the form of subject matter knowledge and common sense are often needed to complement AI. And executives must understand which challenges are right for these new technologies to address.

    Abstract: Discover the 24 reasons people are leaving you for competitors and how to win them back. In Why Customers Leave, popular customer experience and marketing speaker David Avrin makes a compelling case for customer experience as a bankable differentiator in an era of vast marketplace choices. The book lays out the very visible reasons for the recent shift in customer mindset and expectation, illustrates the myriad ways that companies inadvertently drive customers and prospects to competitors, and offers a multitude of creative strategies and tactics to attract and retain new prospects. In the book, David explores and articulates the disturbing new dynamic that has arisen from easy-to-find, one-click-away, at-your-fingertips options: “We have become a world of impatient, intolerant and demanding customers, and we move on quickly if inconvenienced in any way. Don’t blame the millennials! We have seen the enemy, and it is all of us.”

    Abstract: Take a practioner’s approach in analyzing the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the security issues facing an IoT architecture. You’ll review the architecture's central components, from hardware communication interfaces, such as UARTand SPI, to radio protocols, such as BLE or ZigBee. You'll also learn to assess a device physically by opening it, looking at the PCB, and identifying the chipsets and interfaces. You'll then use that information to gain entry to the device or to perform other actions, such as dumping encryption keys and firmware. As the IoT rises to one of the most popular tech trends, manufactures need to take necessary steps to secure devices and protect them from attackers. The IoT Hacker's Handbook breaks down the Internet of Things, exploits it, and reveals how these devices can be built securely. What You’ll Learn Perform a threat model of a real-world IoT device and locate all possible attacker entry points Use reverse engineering of firmware binaries to identify security issues Analyze,assess, and identify security issues in exploited ARM and MIPS based binaries Sniff, capture, and exploit radio communication protocols, such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and ZigBee Who This Book is For Those interested in learning about IoT security, such as pentesters working in different domains, embedded device developers, or IT people wanting to move to an Internet of Things security role.

    Abstract: The Rust Programming Language is the official book on Rust: an open source systems programming language that helps you write faster, more reliable software. Rust offers control over low-level details (such as memory usage) in combination with high-level ergonomics, eliminating the hassle traditionally associated with low-level languages. The authors of The Rust Programming Language , members of the Rust Core Team, share their knowledge and experience to show you how to take full advantage of Rust’s features—from installation to creating robust and scalable programs. You’ll begin with basics like creating functions, choosing data types, and binding variables and then move on to more advanced concepts, such as: •Ownership and borrowing, lifetimes, and traits •Using Rust’s memory safety guarantees to build fast, safe programs •Testing, error handling, and effective refactoring •Generics, smart pointers, multithreading, trait objects, and advanced pattern matching •Using Cargo, Rust’s built-in package manager, to build, test, and document your code and manage dependencies •How best to use Rust’s advanced compiler with compiler-led programming techniques You’ll find plenty of code examples throughout the book, as well as three chapters dedicated to building complete projects to test your learning: a number guessing game, a Rust implementation of a command line tool, and a multithreaded server. New to this edition: An extended section on Rust macros, an expanded chapter on modules, and appendixes on Rust development tools and editions.

    Abstract: The empowering story of Larry Hite’s unlikely rise to the top of the hedge fund world—with critical insights and lessons you can take to the bank In The Rule , legendary trader and hedge fund pioneer Larry Hite recounts his working-class upbringing in Brooklyn as a dyslexic, partially blind kid who was anything but a model student—and how he went on to found and run Mint Investment Management Company, one of the most profitable and largest quantitative hedge funds in the world. Hite’s wild success is based on his deep understanding that markets are flawed—just like people. Through his early-life struggles and failures, Hite came to know himself well—his fears, his frustrations, his self-doubt, and his tolerance for all of the above. This motivational book reveals that by accepting the facts of his life and of himself, he was able to accept markets as they are. And that was the key to his success. In these pages, you’ll walk of the footsteps of an investing legend, who imparts smart, practical trading lessons throughout the journey. Making a successful living in trading isn’t about beating the markets. It’s about meeting markets where they are, embracing the fact of risk, knowing yourself, and playing it strictly by the numbers. The Rule shows that investing decisions are not only bets or gambles, but investments in time, energy, and attention. By focusing on realistic returns on your investments—versus what you expect or hope to get—you immediately improve your probability for success.

    Abstract: Professor Woodall’s essay shows that this book represents a remarkable contribution, even by today’s standards, because of its contemporary thinking about the relationship between the specific topic of SQC and the broader company context of Quality Management. It also demonstrates the remarkable awareness of at least some young US engineers in the post-war period about the vital role of Statistical Quality Control in establishing and maintaining a competitive position. The book reveals that there was unsuspected knowledge extant immediately post-war, about the importance of Statistical Quality Control when appropriately applied in an industrial setting. It also helps to correct wide-spread historical misconceptions about who specifically was responsible for helping Japanese industry get back on its feet post-war, a task assigned to General Douglas Macarthur by President Truman and how Macarthur was indebted to Sarasohn.

    Abstract: The book that reveals how today’s most successful leaders turn vision into reality—featuring profiles of Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Reed Hastings, Mike Lawrie, and more. Consensus. Negotiation. Compromise. A democratic approach to leadership drives most organizations today. Consensus based decision making may be popular, but it is far from the best approach in business. It’s also rarely the right approach for C-level executives—especially now that digital technology is driving real business disruption. Simply put, consensus is an innovation killer. The most successful, disruptive companies are propelled forward by mandate driven leaders. These leaders are inspired by a compelling belief, idea, strategy or tactic. Through their willpower, organizations are thrust into the future. The mandate driven leadership model is the hallmark of visionaries who have changed entire industries and sustained consistent innovation in their own companies. The Power of Mandate reveals what it takes to be an effective leader in today’s disruptive business environment. You’ll learn how the most audacious visionaries managed turn their visions into reality. This timely book will help you: • Discover your inner visionary • Avoid the pitfalls of consensus leadership • Create a mandate driven culture • Develop leadership skills in others, and more Profiles of the most successful mandate driven leaders—including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Apple’s Steve Jobs, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Netflix’s Reed Hastings, Airbnb’s Brian Chesky, DXC Technology’s Mike Lawrie, and Microsoft’s Bill Gates—provide invaluable leadership lessons you can begin applying today.

    Abstract: Former Procter & Gamble Vice President for IT and Shared Services, Tony Saldanha gives you the keys to a successful digital transformation: a proven five-stage model and a disciplined process for executing it. Digital transformation is more important than ever now that we're in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where the lines between the physical, digital, and biological worlds are becoming ever more blurred. But fully 70 percent of digital transformations fail. Why? Tony Saldanha, a globally awarded industry thought-leader who led operations around the world and major digital changes at Procter & Gamble, discovered it's not due to innovation or technological problems. Rather, the devil is in the details: a lack of clear goals and a disciplined process for achieving them. In this book, Saldanha lays out a five-stage process for moving from digitally automating processes here and there to making digital technology the very backbone of your company. For each of these five stages, Saldanha describes two associated disciplines vital to the success of that stage and a checklist of questions to keep you on track. You want to disrupt before you are disrupted—be the next Netflix, not the next Blockbuster. Using dozens of case studies and his own considerable experience, Saldanha shows how digital transformation can be made routinely successful, and instead of representing an existential threat, it will become the opportunity of a lifetime.

    Abstract: Do your most important work when you are your most resourceful Are you drowning in email? Overloaded with calendar invitations? Frustrated by wasteful meetings and an ever-growing workload? Then you know that being busy does not mean being productive. Most workers are being asked to take on more responsibilities with less support, advised to simply ‘be innovative.’ But you only have a finite amount of energy and thinking capacity available to you in a day. Most of us are wasting it on things that aren't contributing to our most important work: the activities that require problem solving, decision making and critical thinking. Developed for business professionals, The First Two Hours teaches you how to design your day, rather than be at the mercy of it. Using research on neuroscience, energy flow and the body’s natural rhythms, it divides the workday into manageable blocks and helps you determine when you are most resourceful, and therefore when you should complete your most demanding tasks. Optimize your day in blocks of two hours Take back control of your work life by creating a workflow designed for you Do your most important work at the right time of day so it gets the resources it deserves Decide when you need to be ’on’ and when you can be ’available’ so you can maximise productivity In a time of near-constant information overload, this practical handbook helps you focus on getting done what you need to get done, when you are best able to do it. By learning to invest your energy strategically, you can be in the driver’s seat every work day and achieve a level of productivity beyond what you thought possible.

    Abstract: Ob Präsentation, Videobotschaft oder Teambesprechung: Kommunikation ist für Produktmanager, Teamleiter und Führungskräfte ein entscheidendes Werkzeug. Im modernen Unternehmensalltag sind die Anforderungen an die Kommunikationsfähigkeiten noch einmal gestiegen: durch die Reizüberflutung der Rezipienten, die enorme Komplexität und Dynamik unternehmerischer Aufgaben und neue agile Arbeitsweisen. Die übliche, ausschließlich faktenbasierte Kommunikation stößt an ihre Grenzen. Storytelling hat sich deshalb in den letzten Jahren zu einer Schlüsselqualifikation für Mitarbeiter in leitenden Positionen entwickelt. Mit überraschenden, emotionalen und einprägsamen Storys gelingt es, Teams, B2B-Kunden und Stakeholder zu motivieren und zu überzeugen. In ihrem dritten Buch demonstriert Petra Sammer wirksames Business Storytelling und Leadership Storytelling. Sie erläutert, wie und warum Storytelling erfolgreich ist, vermittelt die Grundlagen der Kommunikationstechnik und gibt einen Überblick über die Anwendung in Krisensituationen und Change-Prozessen und im Wissens- und Projektmanagement.

    Abstract: AN UP-TO-DATE, COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT OF A CLASSIC TEXT ON MISSING DATA IN STATISTICS The topic of missing data has gained considerable attention in recent decades. This new edition by two acknowledged experts on the subject offers an up-to-date account of practical methodology for handling missing data problems. Blending theory and application, authors Roderick Little and Donald Rubin review historical approaches to the subject and describe simple methods for multivariate analysis with missing values. They then provide a coherent theory for analysis of problems based on likelihoods derived from statistical models for the data and the missing data mechanism, and then they apply the theory to a wide range of important missing data problems. Statistical Analysis with Missing Data, Third Edition starts by introducing readers to the subject and approaches toward solving it. It looks at the patterns and mechanisms that create the missing data, as well as a taxonomy of missing data. It then goes on to examine missing data in experiments, before discussing complete-case and available-case analysis, including weighting methods. The new edition expands its coverage to include recent work on topics such as nonresponse in sample surveys, causal inference, diagnostic methods, and sensitivity analysis, among a host of other topics. An updated "classic" written by renowned authorities on the subject Features over 150 exercises (including many new ones) Covers recent work on important methods like multiple imputation, robust alternatives to weighting, and Bayesian methods Revises previous topics based on past student feedback and class experience Contains an updated and expanded bibliography Statistical Analysis with Missing Data, Third Edition is an ideal textbook for upper undergraduate and/or beginning graduate level students of the subject. It is also an excellent source of information for applied statisticians and practitioners in government and industry.
