Developing video games—hero's journey or fool's errand? The creative and technical logistics that go into building today's hottest games can be more harrowing and complex than the games themselves, often seeming like an endless maze or a bottomless abyss. In Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, Jason Schreier takes readers on a fascinating odyssey behind the scenes of video game development, where the creator may be a team of 600 overworked underdogs or a solitary geek genius. Exploring the artistic challenges, technical impossibilities, marketplace demands, and Donkey Kong-sized monkey wrenches thrown into the works by corporate, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels reveals how bringing any game to completion is more than Sisyphean—it's nothing short of miraculous.

Taking some of the most popular, bestselling recent games, Schreier immerses readers in the hellfire of the development process, whether it's RPG studio Bioware's challenge to beat an impossible schedule and overcome countless technical nightmares to build Dragon Age: Inquisition; indie developer Eric Barone's single-handed efforts to grow country-life RPG Stardew Valley from one man's vision into a multi-million-dollar franchise; or Bungie spinning out from their corporate overlords at Microsoft to create Destiny, a brand new universe that they hoped would become as iconic as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings—even as it nearly ripped their studio apart.

Documenting the round-the-clock crunches, buggy-eyed burnout, and last-minute saves, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels is a journey through development hell—and ultimately a tribute to the dedicated diehards and unsung heroes who scale mountains of obstacles in their quests to create the best games imaginable.

Seasoned Google execs Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg provide an insider's guide to Google-from the business history and corporate strategy to developing a new managment philosophy and creating a workplace culture where innovation and creativity thrive.

Google Executive Chairman and ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of Products Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google over a decade ago as proven technology executives. At the time, the company was already well-known for doing things differently, reflecting the visionary-and frequently contrarian-principles of founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. If Eric and Jonathan were going to succeed, they realized they would have to relearn everything they thought they knew about management and business.

Today, Google is a global icon that regularly pushes the boundaries of innovation in a variety of fields. How Google Works is an entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Eric and Jonathan learned as they helped build the company. The authors explain how technology has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers, and that the only way to succeed in this ever-changing landscape is to create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom Eric and Jonathan dub "smart creatives."

Covering topics including corporate culture, strategy, talent, decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption, the authors illustrate management maxims ("Consensus requires dissension," "Exile knaves but fight for divas," "Think 10X, not 10%") with numerous insider anecdotes from Google's history, many of which are shared here for the first time.

In an era when everything is speeding up, the best way for businesses to succeed is to attract smart-creative people and give them an environment where they can thrive at scale. How Google Works explains how to do just that.

A revelatory exploration of the hottest trend in technology and the dramatic impact it will have on the economy, science, and society at large.

Which paint color is most likely to tell you that a used car is in good shape? How can officials identify the most dangerous New York City manholes before they explode? And how did Google searches predict the spread of the H1N1 flu outbreak?

The key to answering these questions, and many more, is big data. “Big data” refers to our burgeoning ability to crunch vast collections of information, analyze it instantly, and draw sometimes profoundly surprising conclusions from it. This emerging science can translate myriad phenomena—from the price of airline tickets to the text of millions of books—into searchable form, and uses our increasing computing power to unearth epiphanies that we never could have seen before. A revolution on par with the Internet or perhaps even the printing press, big data will change the way we think about business, health, politics, education, and innovation in the years to come. It also poses fresh threats, from the inevitable end of privacy as we know it to the prospect of being penalized for things we haven’t even done yet, based on big data’s ability to predict our future behavior.

In this brilliantly clear, often surprising work, two leading experts explain what big data is, how it will change our lives, and what we can do to protect ourselves from its hazards. Big Data is the first big book about the next big thing.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Fremdsprachenunterricht und Übersetzen: zwei Begriffe, unter denen sich jeder etwas vorstellen kann. Wir alle haben in höherem oder geringerem Maß Fremdsprachenunterricht genossen. Dort haben wir mehr oder weniger gelernt – meistens weniger, wenn man Allgemeinplätzen wie „Mit Schulenglisch kommt man in England nicht durch“ Glauben schenkt. Auch das Übersetzen kennt jeder: Es hat mit zwei Sprachen zu tun, und es muss jemanden geben, der zwischen diesen zwei Sprachen und deren Sprechern vermittelt, da diese sich sonst nicht verstünden. Die übersetzende Person muss dabei beide Sprachen beherrschen. In der Wissenschaft schließlich haben sich mit der Fremdsprachendidaktik und der Übersetzungswissenschaft zwei Disziplinen zu diesen Themen entwickelt und etabliert. Bei der Kombination „Übersetzen und Fremdsprachenunterricht“ liegt der Fall jedoch anders: Da die jahrhundertelang vorherrschende Grammatik-Übersetzungs-Methode zum Lernen von Fremdsprachen in der Fachliteratur weitgehend diskreditiert ist, beschäftigen sich die Didaktiker nur noch selten mit den Möglichkeiten, die das Übersetzen für den Fremdsprachenunterricht bietet. Daran haben auch kognitive Ansätze nichts geändert, die als Reaktion auf die audiolingualen und audiovisuellen Methoden von einer neuerlichen Hinwendung zu Grammatik und Sprachbewusstheit gekennzeichnet sind. Das Thema führt nach wie vor ein Mauerblümchendasein, sowohl in der Fremdsprachendidaktik als auch in der Übersetzungswissenschaft – beide Disziplinen haben bisher wenig Notiz voneinander genommen. Die Gründe dafür können wie folgt zusammengefasst werden: Viele glauben nach wie vor, dass man eine Fremdsprache nur gut können müsse, dann stelle sich die Fähigkeit zum Übersetzen von selbst ein. Viele haben durch das, was sie früher im schulischen Fremdsprachenunterricht praktiziert haben, einen begrenzten Blick dafür, welche Möglichkeiten das Übersetzen bietet und welche Leistungen Übersetzer erbringen. Das Übersetzen wird von Vertretern der Fremdsprachendidaktik als zu komplex und eher lernhemmend empfunden. Für die Vertreter der Übersetzungswissenschaft findet „richtiges“ Übersetzen im Fremdsprachenunterricht ohnehin nicht statt. Gang der Untersuchung: Diese Über- und Unterschätzungen hinsichtlich des Übersetzens zu relativieren und auszuräumen, ist ein übergreifendes Ziel dieser Arbeit. Die Realität der täglichen Unterrichtspraxis zeigt die Berechtigung dieses Anliegens: [...]
