Selenium WebDriver Recipes in Ruby
The problem solving guide to Selenium WebDriver in Ruby
About the Book
Selenium WebDriver is a popular browser automation framework, testers or developers with Selenium skills are in high demand. It is easy to get started with Selenium, but do you use effectively for testing real-world test scenarios? Such as data driving test from an Excel spreadsheet and handling pop up dialogs.
Selenium WebDriver Recipes will show you solutions to your problems from the experts who have already solved them. All recipe test scripts (~200 in Ruby language) are ready-to-run, i.e., I created the target web pages and test sites, so that you can simply find the recipes and run, in a matter of seconds. Owning this book is like having a test automation coach sitting next to you.

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.
