Becoming a Better Programmer

If you’re passionate about programming and want to get better at it, you’ve come to the right source. Code Craft author Pete Goodliffe presents a collection of useful techniques and approaches to the art and craft of programming that will help boost your career and your well-being.
Goodliffe presents sound advice that he’s learned in 15 years of professional programming. The book’s standalone chapters span the range of a software developer’s life—dealing with code, learning the trade, and improving performance—with no language or industry bias. Whether you’re a seasoned developer, a neophyte professional, or a hobbyist, you’ll find valuable tips in five independent categories:
* Code-level techniques for crafting lines of code, testing, debugging, and coping with complexity
* Practices, approaches, and attitudes: keep it simple, collaborate well, reuse, and create malleable code
* Tactics for learning effectively, behaving ethically, finding challenges, and avoiding stagnation
* Practical ways to complete things: use the right tools, know what “done” looks like, and seek help from colleagues
* Habits for working well with others, and pursuing development as a social activity

Quando era solo una bambina, per Michelle Robinson l’intero mondo era racchiuso nel South Side di Chicago, dove lei e il fratello Craig condividevano una cameretta nel piccolo appartamento di famiglia e giocavano a rincorrersi al parco. È stato qui che i suoi genitori, Fraser e Marian Robinson, le hanno insegnato a parlare con schiettezza e a non avere paura. Ma ben presto la vita l’ha portata molto lontano, dalle aule di Princeton, dove ha imparato per la prima volta cosa si prova a essere l’unica donna nera in una stanza, fino al grattacielo in cui ha lavorato come potente avvocato d’affari e dove, la mattina di un giorno d’estate, uno studente di giurisprudenza di nome Barack Obama è entrato nel suo ufficio sconvolgendole tutti i piani. In questo libro, per la prima volta, Michelle Obama descrive gli inizi del matrimonio, le difficoltà nel trovare un equilibrio tra la carriera, la famiglia e la rapida ascesa politica del marito. Ci confida le loro discussioni sull’opportunità di correre per la presidenza degli Stati Uniti, e racconta della popolarità vissuta – e delle critiche ricevute – durante la campagna elettorale. Con grazia, senso dell’umorismo e una sincerità non comune, Michelle Obama ci offre il vivido dietro le quinte di una famiglia balzata all’improvviso sotto i riflettori di tutto il mondo e degli otto anni decisivi trascorsi alla Casa Bianca, durante i quali lei ha conosciuto meglio il suo Paese, e il suo Paese ha conosciuto meglio lei.
*Becoming* ci conduce in un viaggio dalle modeste cucine dell’Iowa alle sale da ballo di Buckingham Palace, tra momenti di indicibile dolore e prove di tenace resilienza, e ci svela l’animo di una donna unica e rivoluzionaria che lotta per vivere con autenticità, capace di mettere la sua forza e la sua voce al servizio di alti ideali. Nel raccontare con onestà e coraggio la sua storia, Michelle Obama lancia una sfida a tutti noi: chi siamo davvero e chi vogliamo diventare?
*Dalla prefazione* :
C’è ancora molto che non so dell’America, della vita, di quel che potrebbe riservarci il futuro. Ma conosco me stessa. Mio padre, Fraser, mi ha insegnato a lavorare sodo, ridere spesso e mantenere la parola data. Mia madre, Marian, mi ha mostrato come pensare con la mia testa e far sentire la mia voce. Insieme, nel piccolo appartamento nel South Side di Chicago, mi hanno aiutata a riconoscere il valore della nostra storia, della mia storia, all’interno di quella, più grande, del nostro Paese. Anche se non è bella o perfetta. Anche se è più dura di quanto vorresti che fosse. La tua storia è quello che hai, quello che avrai sempre. Non dimenticarla mai.

Aurora: Born to the Next Life

Unexpected death in the family made the author realize that in his previous book he had just scanned the notions of the afterlife. To try and help the grieving family he describes what happens during the first few days, and thereafter. This leads to the Sacraments: how they work, their usefulness. The soul is stuck in the Purgatory by his Sins – unresolved issues between what he thought he should have done and what he did – What are sins today? Politics changes this life and also the next. Two issues. New laws create new forbidden activities, new sins. On another scale, unjustified war is more power to Evil. Indirectly this entity gives added strength to the groups who impose abnormal laws on the majority. Entering the Age of Aquarius, Reason should establish its power. Laws should be thought thru: what about nature? biosphere, needs of evolution, of mankind; human instincts; energy: water, love, money. The author established earlier the existence of another world, here he clarifies the links between both sides, explains the living souls’ – this silent majority’s needs. Your future needs. Time has come for new thinking, new analysis, new direction of society.

Art Themes

Flexible in approach and full of colorful examples, this textbook provides a basic introduction to what art is and can be in the lives of people who do not necessarily think of themselves as “artists.” You will be taught about a variety of art themes, genres, materials, and processes that appeal to novice art makers. The lessons are organized by themes of general subject matter or media. Options are available for work in mixed media, crafts, photography and digital media, as well as in traditional drawing or painting media. After picking a theme of particular interest to you, look next at the four strands of lessons presented in that thematic unit. Moving from left to right, select one lesson from each consecutive strand and complete that lesson. Because each lesson builds upon previously presented knowledge and developed skill, as you progress through four lessons, one from each strand, you should grow in your understanding of art concepts, meanings, and processes, while also improving your art making skills. Completing this course will help you develop a new appreciation for the power and possibilities of art learning, by understanding better the art others create, as well as making it yourself.

Among the Bohemians

‘Racy, vivacious, warm-hearted. Offers an illuminating and well-researched portrait of life among the artists, a century ago’ TLS
Subversive, eccentric and flamboyant, the artistic community in the first half of the twentieth century were ingaged in a grand experiment.
The Bohemians ate garlic and didn’t always wash; they painted and danced and didn’t care what people thought. They sent their children to co-ed schools; explored homosexuality and Free Love. They were often drunk, broke and hungry but they were rebels.
In this fascinating book Virginia Nicholson examines the way the Bohemians refashioned the way we live our lives.

America’s Secret Establishment

Breaking 170 years of secrecy, this intriguing exposé takes a behind-the-scenes look at Yale’s mysterious society, the Order of the Skull and Bones, and its prominent members, numbering among them Tafts, Rockefellers, Pillsburys, and Bushes. Explored is how Skull and Bones initiates have become senators, judges, cabinet secretaries, spies, titans of finance and industry, and even U.S. presidents, including George W. Bush. This book reveals that far from being a campus fraternity, the society is more concerned with the success of its members in the postcollegiate world. Included are a verified membership list, rare reprints of original Order materials revealing the interlocking power centers dominated by Bonesmen, and a peek inside the Tomb, their 140-year-old private clubhouse.

Alphonse Mucha

Now available in a new edition, this gorgeous volume surveys the entire breadth of Alphonse Mucha’s work—from illustration and decorative arts to his photography and the historical paintings that were his life’s passion.
Alphonse Mucha is known largely for having originated Art Nouveau, when his poster of the actress Sarah Bernhardt became a legendary icon of the movement. Mucha went on to design hundreds of pieces in the decorative arts field, but later distanced himself from the style he pioneered, devoting his time and energy to painting. This book presents the full array of Mucha’s artistic contributions—not only his posters and jewelry designs but also his design for the pavilion of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 1900 world’s fair. The book also contains his works on canvas, which include pastels and frescoes, and his magnum opus, The Slavic Epic, a series of 20 paintings depicting the history of his native people. A stunning selection of nearly 500 color illustrations is accompanied with essays that explore Mucha’s style and inspirations, his transition away from the decorative arts, and his forays into photography. Fans of Art Nouveau will treasure this dazzling and unique study of the artist and his contributions to design and illustration.

All the Songs: The Story Behind Every Beatles Release

**Every album and every song ever released by the Beatles – from “Please Please Me” (U.S. 1963) to “The Long and Winding Road” (U.S. 1970) – is dissected, discussed, and analyzed by two music historians in this lively, fully illustrated work.**
*All the Songs* delves deep into the history and origins of the Beatles and their music. This first-of-its-kind book draws upon decades of research, as music historians Margotin and Guesdon recount the circumstances that led to the composition of every song, the recording process, and the instruments used. Here, we learn that one of John Lennon’s favorite guitars was a 1958 Rickenbacker 325 Capri, which he bought for £100 in 1960 in Hamburg, Germany. We also learn that “Love Me Do,” recorded in Abbey Road Studios in September 1962, took 18 takes to get right, even though it was one of the first songs John and Paul ever wrote together. And the authors reveal that when the Beatles performed “I Want to Hold Your Hand” on *The Ed Sullivan Show* in 1964, John’s microphone wasn’t turned on, so viewers heard only Paul singing. The hundreds of photographs throughout the book include rare black-and-white publicity stills, images of Beatles instruments, and engaging shots of the musicians in-studio.
*All the Songs* is the must-have book for the any true Beatles fan.
