Kubernetes Operators Automating the Container Orchestration Platform

Kubernetes Operators Automating the Container Orchestration Platform

Author: Jason Dobies, Joshua Wood Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/02/2020

This practical book shows you how to use Operators to install some of the most essential core services on Kubernetes clusters with automated management and upgrades. Items such as permanent storage and databases can be complex to run on Kubernetes, because they often have their own notions of storage, networking, and clustering. Authors Josh Wood and Paul Bert explain how Operators know how to configure serious apps to work on your cluster, and how to keep them running over time, including upgrading them between versions.

The First Electronic Computer The Atanasoff Story

The First Electronic Computer The Atanasoff Story

Author: Alice R. Burks, Arthur W. Burks Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/02/2020

This is the story of the electronic computer that launched the computer revolution, a machine completed in 1942 by John Atanasoff but one he left behind in Iowa for war research in Washington. Drawing on their direct knowledge and on the proceedings of a multimillion-dollar patent trial, the authors upset the commonly held view that the ENIAC was the world's first electronic computer. They detail the Atanasoff computer and its influence on the ENIAC and computers of today. This book supplements the court's strong findings with a much-needed technical foundation as well as a narrative that is rich in human interest.

Grammars and Automata for String Processing From Mathematics and Computer Science to Biology, and Back

Grammars and Automata for String Processing From Mathematics and Computer Science to Biology, and Back

Author: Carlos Martin-Vide Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/12/2019

The conventional wisdom was that biology influenced mathematics and computer science. But a new approach has taken hold: that of transferring methods and tools from computer science to biology. The reverse trend is evident in Grammars and Automata for String Processing: From Mathematics and Computer Science to Biology and Back. The contributors address the structural (syntactical) view of the domain. Mathematical linguistics and computer science can offer various tools for modeling complex macromolecules and for analyzing and simulating biological issues. This collection is valuable for students and researchers in biology, computer science, and applied mathematics.

Electron Projects Build over 9 cross-platform desktop applications from scratch

Author: Denys Vuika Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/11/2019

A project-based guide to help you create, package, and deploy desktop applications on multiple platforms using modern JavaScript frameworks Key Features Use your web development skills with JavaScript and Node.js to build desktop applications for macOS and Windows Develop desktop versions of popular mobile applications that are similar to Slack, Spotify, and more Design desktop apps with automatic updates and real-time analytics capabilities Book DescriptionThe Electron framework allows you to use modern web technologies to build applications that share the same code across all operating systems and platforms. This also helps designers to easily transition from the web to the desktop. Electron Projects guides you through building cross-platform Electron apps with modern web technologies and JavaScript frameworks such as Angular, React.js, and Vue.js. You'll explore the process of configuring modern JavaScript frameworks and UI libraries, real-time analytics and automatic updates, and interactions with the operating system. You'll get hands-on with building a basic Electron app, before moving on to implement a Markdown Editor. In addition to this, you'll be able to experiment with major JavaScript frameworks such as Angular and Vue.js, discovering ways to integrate them with Electron apps for building cross-platform desktop apps. Later, you'll learn to build a screenshot snipping tool, a mini-game, and a music player, while also gaining insights into analytics, bug tracking, and licensing. You'll then get to grips with building a chat app, an eBook generator and finally a simple digital wallet app. By the end of this book, you'll have experience in building a variety of projects and project templates that will help you to apply your knowledge when creating your own cross-platform applications. What you will learn Initialize Node.js, Node Package Manager (NPM), and JavaScript to set up your app Integrate Phaser with Electron to build a simple 2D game Improve app quality by adding an error tracking system and crash reports Implement group chat features and event handling capabilities using Firebase Integrate a WordPress-like rich-text editor into your app Build Electron applications using a single codebase Who this book is forThis book is for JavaScript developers who want to explore the Electron framework for building desktop apps.

Operating Systems for Supercomputers and High Performance Computing

Author: Balazs Gerofi Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/10/2019

Few works are as timely and critical to the advancement of high performance computing than is this new up-to-date treatise on leading-edge directions of operating systems. It is a first-hand product of many of the leaders in this rapidly evolving field and possibly the most comprehensive. This new and important book masterfully presents the major alternative concepts driving the future of operating system design for high performance computing. In particular, it describes the major advances of monolithic operating systems such as Linux and Unix that dominate the TOP500 list. It also presents the state of the art in lightweight kernels that exhibit high efficiency and scalability at the loss of generality. Finally, this work looks forward to possibly the most promising strategy of a hybrid structure combining full service functionality with lightweight kernel operation. With this, it is likely that this new work will find its way on the shelves of almost everyone who is in any way engaged in the multi-discipline of high performance computing.
