Getting Started With Angular
Getting Started With Angular
About the Book
Angular is a well-established front-end framework and this book will guide you through how to get started with Angular.
This book is over 11 chapters, taking you from introducing you to what Angular is and the benefits of using Angular for your next web application project. To going through how an Angular application is structured, how it makes use of Components, templates and services. Then moving onto how we can make use of the Angular CLI to help build parts of our application.
Once we have an understanding of what Angular is and how it’s structured we will go through more advanced features like writing Services to access external APIs. Then we will go through Observables and Observer, seeing what they are and how they can be used within our Angular applications.
We will look at RxJs and NgRx, how these two libraries can be used with Angular to tackle state management within an application. Finally, we will look at how to write Unit Tests and how to use the Angular CLI to create a production-ready version of an application.

Atomic KotlinBruce Eckel and Svetlana Isakova
For both beginning and experienced programmers! From the author of the multi-award-winning Thinking in C++ and Thinking in Java together with a member of the Kotlin language team comes a book that breaks the concepts into small, easy-to-digest "atoms," along with exercises supported by hints and solutions directly inside IntelliJ IDEA!
C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.

Java OOP Done RightAlan Mellor
Object Oriented Programming is still a great way to create clean, maintainable code. But only if you use it right.
This book gives you 25 years of OO best practice, ready to use.
You'll learn to design objects behaviour-first, use TDD to help, then confidently apply Design Patterns, SOLID principles and Refactoring to make clean, crafted code.

Ansible is a simple, but powerful, server and configuration management tool. Learn to use Ansible effectively, whether you manage one server—or thousands.
Composing SoftwareEric Elliott
All software design is composition: the act of breaking complex problems down into smaller problems and composing those solutions. Most developers have a limited understanding of compositional techniques. It's time for that to change.
Cloud StrategyGregor Hohpe
“Strategy is the difference between making a wish and making it come true.” A successful migration to the cloud shouldn’t be driven by wishes, but guided by a sound strategy, frameworks, and decision models. This book tells you how—without becoming superficial nor getting lost in technology and product details.
