Understanding API Security

Understanding API Security

Gone are the days when it was acceptable for a piece of software to live in its own little silo, disconnected from the outside world. Today, services are expected to be available for programming, mixing, and building into new applications. The web-based Application Programming Interface, or API, is how services make themselves available i...
Exploring Cloud Computing

Exploring Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing is enabling many trends in IT today: microservices, pay-as-you-go pricing, and serverless architectures, to name three.

Other companies are gaining traction as well: Google invests into their Google ...
Agile Development for Serverless Platforms

Agile Development for Serverless Platforms

You need more than great dev tools to release great software; you need an efficient pipeline that takes advantage of modern Agile development practices. Serverless platforms like AWS offer the basic building blocks you need to run code, store data, or process streaming information so you can focus on the features you want to provide, not ...
Exploring the Data Jungle

Exploring the Data Jungle

Some people like to believe that all data is ready to be used immediately. Not so! Data in the wild is hard to track and harder to understand, and the first job of data scientists to identify and prepare data so it can be used. To find your way through the data jungle successfully, you need the right perspective and guidance. (There's no ...
Exploring Microservices

Exploring Microservices

In the last few years, microservice-based architecture has become one of the hottest innovations in software and web development.

Using the Web to Build the IoT

Using the Web to Build the IoT

The Internet of Things offers us an internet that is becoming more than just a mass of multimedia content. The IoT extends into the physical, real-time world using a myriad of tiny computers. It's a system of physical objects that can be discovered, monitored, controlled, and interacted with by electronic devices that communicate over var...
Designing Scalable JavaScript Applications

Designing Scalable JavaScript Applications

If you've ever written a non-trivial JavaScript application, you know that creating a code base that's easy to maintain and scales well over time is no small feat. The complexity only grows as the project becomes larger. While it's impossible to plan for every change that could possibly happen over the life of a project, you can help futu...

Mastering Python

Mastering Python

Python is a dynamic programming language. It is known for its high readability and hence it is often the first language learned by new programmers. Python being multi-paradigm, it can be used to achieve the same thing in different ways and it is compatible across different platforms. Even if you find writing Python code easy, writing code...
Test-Driven iOS Development with Swift

Test-Driven iOS Development with Swift

Test-driven development (TDD) is a proven way to find software bugs early. Writing tests before your code improves the structure and maintainability of your app.Test-driven iOS Development with Swift will help you understand the process of TDD and how it impacts your applications written in Swift. Through practical, real-world examples, y...
Neural Network Programming with Java

Neural Network Programming with Java

Vast quantities of data are produced every second. In this context, neural networks become a powerful technique to extract useful knowledge from large amounts of raw, seemingly unrelated data. One of the most preferred languages for neural network programming is Java as it is easier to write code using it, and most of the most popular neu...
