    On Java 8
    Bruce Eckel

    NOTE: Although the book refers to the web site www.OnJava8.com, that site is not yet live.The examples are freely available at https://github.com/BruceEckel/OnJava8-Examples.On Java 8 is only available as an eBook, and only via Google Play Books. Any other source or delivery mechanism is illegitimate.This book is far too large to publish as a single print volume, and my intent has always been to only publish it as an eBook. Color syntax highlighting for code listings is, alone, worth the cost of admission. Searchability, font resizing or text-to-voice for the vision-impaired, the fact you can always keep it with you—there are so many benefits to eBooks it's hard to name them all.Anyone buying this book needs a computer to run the programs and write code, and the eBook reads nicely on a computer (I was also surprised to discover that it even reads tolerably well on a phone). However, the best reading experience is on a tablet computer. Tablets are inexpensive enough you can now buy one for less than you'd pay for an equivalent print version of this book (which, note, does not exist). It's much easier to read a tablet in bed (for example) than trying to manage the pages of a physical book, especially one this big. When working at your computer, you don't have to hold the pages open when using a tablet at your side. It might feel different at first, but I think you'll find the benefits far outweigh the discomfort of adapting.I've done the research, and Google Play Books provides a very nice reading experience on every platform, including Linux and iOS devices. As an experiment, I've decided to try publishing exclusively through Google Books.The free sample includes a complete table of contents.

  • The Go Programming Language

    The Go Programming Language
    Alan A. A. Donovan

    The Go Programming Language is the authoritative resource for any programmer who wants to learn Go. It shows how to write clear and idiomatic Go to solve real-world problems. The book does not assume prior knowledge of Go nor experience with any specific language, so you’ll find it accessible whether you’re most comfortable with JavaScript, Ruby, Python, Java, or C++. The first chapter is a tutorial on the basic concepts of Go, introduced through programs for file I/O and text processing, simple graphics, and web clients and servers. Early chapters cover the structural elements of Go programs: syntax, control flow, data types, and the organization of a program into packages, files, and functions. The examples illustrate many packages from the standard library and show how to create new ones of your own. Later chapters explain the package mechanism in more detail, and how to build, test, and maintain projects using the go tool. The chapters on methods and interfaces introduce Go’s unconventional approach to object-oriented programming, in which methods can be declared on any type and interfaces are implicitly satisfied. They explain the key principles of encapsulation, composition, and substitutability using realistic examples. Two chapters on concurrency present in-depth approaches to this increasingly important topic. The first, which covers the basic mechanisms of goroutines and channels, illustrates the style known as communicating sequential processes for which Go is renowned. The second covers more traditional aspects of concurrency with shared variables. These chapters provide a solid foundation for programmers encountering concurrency for the first time. The final two chapters explore lower-level features of Go. One covers the art of metaprogramming using reflection. The other shows how to use the unsafe package to step outside the type system for special situations, and how to use the cgo tool to create Go bindings for C libraries. The book features hundreds of interesting and practical examples of well-written Go code that cover the whole language, its most important packages, and a wide range of applications. Each chapter has exercises to test your understanding and explore extensions and alternatives. Source code is freely available for download from http://gopl.io/ and may be conveniently fetched, built, and installed using the go get command.

  • How JavaScript Works

    How JavaScript Works
    Douglas Crockford

    Douglas Crockford starts by looking at the fundamentals: names, numbers, booleans, characters, and bottom values. JavaScript’s number type is shown to be faulty and limiting, but then Crockford shows how to repair those problems. He then moves on to data structures and functions, exploring the underlying mechanisms and then uses higher order functions to achieve class-free object oriented programming. The book also looks at eventual programming, testing, and purity, all the while looking at the requirements of The Next Language. Most of our languages are deeply rooted in the paradigm that produced FORTRAN. Crockford attacks those roots, liberating us to consider the next paradigm.He also presents a strawman language and develops a complete transpiler to implement it. The book is deep, dense, full of code, and has moments when it is intentionally funny.

    This book will help you to understand the basics of python in just 7 days.Code is the language of the future. And the time to learn the ins and outs of coding is now, unless of course you want to be left behind from the biggest revolution that mankind will witness. So what does it take to be one of those who the masses will rely on to create products, change them and do a lot more with technology? Well, the secret is in learning programming languages because every electronic device runs on some sort of programming language. The question then becomes; so which programming language should you at least prioritize to learn given that there are so many programming languages? Well, if for whatever reason, you have been looking to learn programming or perhaps looking to improve your programming skills, Python programming language could be the best option you can get right now. It makes everything so easy! From the rich and well-designed standard library and built-ins to the availability of modules and numerous third-party open source libraries, very few programming languages can beat it. Particularly, if you are a beginner who is looking to dip his or her feet into programming, you need to learn a simple language that is easy to understand and that has easy to maintain code. You need to learn a programming language that runs on all key operating systems such as Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft windows, and one that is more reliable (does not contain pointers, which is case with other languages based on C). You need to learn Python.Python will provide you all that, and since new platforms like Raspberry Pi are Python based, learning Python will place you at an ideal place where you can enjoy the internet of things of opportunities and anyway (in case you have not yet noticed), Python's popularity for the internet of things is really growing.

  • Head First Java: A Brain-Friendly Guide, Edition 2

    Head First Java: A Brain-Friendly Guide, Edition 2
    Kathy Sierra

    Learning a complex new language is no easy task especially when it s an object-oriented computer programming language like Java. You might think the problem is your brain. It seems to have a mind of its own, a mind that doesn't always want to take in the dry, technical stuff you're forced to study. The fact is your brain craves novelty. It's constantly searching, scanning, waiting for something unusual to happen. After all, that's the way it was built to help you stay alive. It takes all the routine, ordinary, dull stuff and filters it to the background so it won't interfere with your brain's real work–recording things that matter. How does your brain know what matters? It's like the creators of the Head First approach say, suppose you're out for a hike and a tiger jumps in front of you, what happens in your brain? Neurons fire. Emotions crank up. Chemicals surge. That's how your brain knows.And that's how your brain will learn Java. Head First Java combines puzzles, strong visuals, mysteries, and soul-searching interviews with famous Java objects to engage you in many different ways. It's fast, it's fun, and it's effective. And, despite its playful appearance, Head First Java is serious stuff: a complete introduction to object-oriented programming and Java. You'll learn everything from the fundamentals to advanced topics, including threads, network sockets, and distributed programming with RMI. And the new. second edition focuses on Java 5.0, the latest version of the Java language and development platform. Because Java 5.0 is a major update to the platform, with deep, code-level changes, even more careful study and implementation is required. So learning the Head First way is more important than ever. If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect–a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. If you haven't, you're in for a treat. You'll see why people say it's unlike any other Java book you've ever read.By exploiting how your brain works, Head First Java compresses the time it takes to learn and retain–complex information. Its unique approach not only shows you what you need to know about Java syntax, it teaches you to think like a Java programmer. If you want to be bored, buy some other book. But if you want to understand Java, this book's for you.
