Why does this book look so different?
Based on the latest research in cognitive science and learning theory, HeadFirst Go uses a visually rich format to engage your mind rather than a textheavyapproach that puts you to sleep. Why waste your time struggling withnew concepts? This multisensory learning experience is designed for theway your brain really works.
Jay McGavren was doing automation for a hotel services company when a colleague introduced him to Programming Perl (a.k.a. the Camel Book). It made him an instant Perl convert, as he liked actually writing code instead of waiting for a 10-person development team to configure a build system. It also gave him the crazy idea to write a technical book someday.
In 2007, with Perl sputtering, Jay was looking for a new interpreted language. With its strong object-orientation, excellent library support, and incredible flexibility, Ruby immediately won him over. He's since used Ruby for two game libraries, a generative art project, in support of a Java development job, and as a Ruby on Railsfreelancer. He's been using Rails in the online developer education space since 2011.
If you want to write Rust programs, then this book is for you. This book is for those who have a basic knowledge of Rust or any programming language. If you are a C/C developer who is migrating to Rust for various reasons, this book is ideal for you.What You Will LearnUnderstand system programming language problems and see how Rust provides unique solutionsGet to know the core concepts of Rust to develop fast and safe applicationsExplore the possibility of integrating Rust units into existing applications to make them more efficientAchieve better parallelism, security, and performanceExplore ways to package your Rust application and ship it for deployment in a production environmentDiscover how to build web applications and services using Rust to provide high-performance to the end userIn Detail
If you are building concurrent applications, server-side programs, or high-performance applications, you will benefit from this language. This book comes with a lot of application-specific recipes to kick-start your development of real-world high-performance applications with the Rust programming language and integrating Rust units into your existing applications. In this book, you will find some 80 practical recipes written in Rust that will allow you to use the code samples right away in your existing applications. These recipes have been tested with stable rust compiler versions of 1.14.0 and above.
This book will help you understand the core concepts of the Rust language, enabling you to develop efficient and high-performance applications by incorporating features such as zero cost abstraction and better memory management.
We'll delve into advanced-level concepts such as error handling, macros, crates, and parallelism in Rust. Toward the end of the book, you will learn how to create HTTP servers and web services, building a strong foundational knowledge in server-side programming and enabling you to deliver solutions to build high-performance and safer production-level web applications and services using Rust.Style and approach
This book helps you learn the core concepts of Rust faster by taking a recipe-based approach, where you can try out different code snippets to understand a concept.
Many people have a difficult time believing they can learn to write iOS apps. Swift 3 for Absolute Beginners, along with the free, live online training sessions will show you how to do so. You'll learn Object Oriented Programming and be introduced to HealthKit before moving on to write your own iPhone and Watch apps from scratch.
Gary Bennett and Brad Lees are full-time professional iOS developers and have developed a broad spectrum of apps for Fortune 500 companies. The authors have taken their combined 12 years of writing apps, teaching online iOS courses, the experience from their first three iOS books, along with their online instruction and free online forum at XcelMe.com to create an excellent training book.

Many experienced programmers try to bend Python to fit patterns they learned from other languages, and never discover Python features outside of their experience. With this book, those Python programmers will thoroughly learn how to become proficient in Python 3.
This book covers:Python data model: understand how special methods are the key to the consistent behavior of objectsData structures: take full advantage of built-in types, and understand the text vs bytes duality in the Unicode ageFunctions as objects: view Python functions as first-class objects, and understand how this affects popular design patternsObject-oriented idioms: build classes by learning about references, mutability, interfaces, operator overloading, and multiple inheritanceControl flow: leverage context managers, generators, coroutines, and concurrency with the concurrent.futures and asyncio packagesMetaprogramming: understand how properties, attribute descriptors, class decorators, and metaclasses work
