Jaimie is a painter, living on his fading reputation. Francis is drifting through life without much purpose. Against the winter backdrop of the road, they fail to make much sense of each other. In Turin, Max is an American abroad, selling art to expat Russians and the Klosters set. At night by the pool in the Turinese fog, events spin violently out of control.
“Hypnotic,” “violent,” “poetic,” “beautiful,” “dark,” “compelling,” “deliciously evocative” – this first novel by Ben Morris is a road-novel remade as a slow-burning thriller.
Ben Morris writes about software for a living. He founded Thief Press as an experiment in digital publishing, to publish his own and others' fiction. He is married with three children, and lives in North London. Driving Jaimie is his first novel.
It's not a how-to book, it's a 'what and why' book. And becauseit names names as it unwinds the design decisions which have shapedthe OS, it is also a 'who' book. It will show where the OS camefrom, how it has evolved to be what it is, and provide a simplemodel for understanding what it is, how it is put together, and howto interface to it and work with it. It will also show why designdecision were made, and will bring those decisions to life in thewords of Symbian's key architects and developers, giving an insiderfeel to the book as it weaves the "inside story" around thearchitectural presentation.
The book will describe the OS architecture in terms of theSymbian system model. It will show how the model breaks down thesystem into parts, what role the parts play in the system, how theparts are architected, what motivates their design, and how thedesign has evolved through the different releases of thesystem.
Key system concepts will be described; design patterns will beexplored and related to those from other operating systems. Theunique features of Symbian OS will be highlighted and theirmotivation and evolution traced and described.
The book will include a substantial reference section itemisingthe OS and its toolkit at component level and providing a referenceentry for each component.
