Maven : a developer's notebook by Vincent Massol( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maven is a new project management and comprehension tool which provides an elegant way to share build logic across projects. In terms of capabilities, Maven is an improvement to Apache Ant-thanks to numerous plug-ins and built-in integration with unit testing frameworks such as JUnit. Tired of writing the same build logic for every project? Using Maven, you can leverage the experience of the community to avoid the tedious process of creating yet another build script for each new project. Maven: A Developer's Notebook begins by introducing you to the concept of project object model (POM), and then offers further details on the essential features of Maven. Like all titles in O'Reilly's Developer's Notebook series, this no-nonsense book skips the boring prose and cuts right to the chase. It's an approach that forces you to get your hands dirty by working through a series of poignant labs-exercises that speak to you instead of at you. Plus, Maven: A Developer's Notebook is the first book on the subject to hit the market, so you know the information is fresh and timely. If you're a Java programmer, you'll be armed with all the critical information you need to get up to speed on this powerful new build tool. You'll discover how Maven can help you: manage a project's build, reporting, and documentation, all from a central piece of information break a complex project into a series of smaller subprojects report on code quality, unit tests, code duplication, and project activity create a custom remote repository build simple and complex plug-ins In the end, you'll find yourself spending less time working on your project's build system and more time working on your project's code

Spring : a developer's notebook by Bruce Tate( )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since development first began on Spring in 2003, there's been a constant buzz about it in Java development publications and corporate IT departments. The reason is clear: Spring is a lightweight Java framework in a world of complex heavyweight architectures that take forever to implement. Spring is like a breath of fresh air to overworked developers. In Spring, you can make an object secure, remote, or transactional, with a couple of lines of configuration instead of embedded code. The resulting application is simple and clean. In Spring, you can work less and go home early, because you can strip away a whole lot of the redundant code that you tend to see in most J2EE applications. You won't be nearly as burdened with meaningless detail. In Spring, you can change your mind without the consequences bleeding through your entire application. You'll adapt much more quickly than you ever could before. Spring: A Developer's Notebook offers a quick dive into the new Spring framework, designed to let you get hands-on as quickly as you like. If you don't want to bother with a lot of theory, this book is definitely for you. You'll work through one example after another. Along the way, you'll discover the energy and promise of the Spring framework. This practical guide features ten code-intensive labs that'll rapidly get you up to speed. You'll learn how to do the following, and more: install the Spring Framework set up the development environment use Spring with other open source Java tools such as Tomcat, Struts, and Hibernate master AOP and transactions utilize ORM solutionsAs with all titles in the Developer's Notebook series, this no-nonsense book skips all the boring prose and cuts right to the chase. It's an approach that forces you to get your hands dirty by working through one instructional example after another-examples that speak to you instead of at you

What is data science? by Michael Kosta Loukides( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We've all heard it: according to Hal Varian, statistics is the next sexy job. Five years ago, in What is Web 2.0, Tim O'Reilly said that ""data is the next Intel Inside."" But what does that statement mean? Why do we suddenly care about statistics and about data? This report examines the many sides of data science -- the technologies, the companies and the unique skill sets. The web is full of ""data-driven apps."" Almost any e-commerce application is a data-driven application. There's a database behind a web front end, and middleware that talks to a number of other databases and data services
Designing Great Data Products by Jeremy Howard( )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Undetermined and English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past few years, we've seen many data products based on predictive modeling. These products range from weather forecasting to recommendation engines like Amazon's. Prediction technology can be interesting and mathematically elegant, but we need to take the next step: going from recommendations to products that can produce optimal strategies for meeting concrete business objectives. We already know how to build these products: they've been in use for the past decade or so, but they're not as common as they should be. This report shows how to take the next step: to go from simple predictions and recommendations to a new generation of data products with the potential to revolutionize entire industries

What is the Internet of things? by Michael Kosta Loukides( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a revision of Building a Solid World, by the same authors, released in February 2014. The Internet of Things (IoT) is more than just a category of electronics. It represents an approach to blending software and hardware, drawing on the strengths of each to introduce intelligence to objects that were previously unintelligent, and to add physical endpoints to software that was once strictly virtual. Radical changes in the hardware development process have made the IoT—and its vast possibility—accessible to anyone. This report surveys the foundational changes that have enabled the IoT and takes a look at what lies ahead
What is artificial intelligence? by Michael Kosta Loukides( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From computer vision to game playing, artificial intelligence (AI) has made a lot of progress in the past few years. Companies such as Google and Facebook have already placed huge bets on this technology, and over the next decade, AI features will steadily creep into one product after another. In this O'Reilly report, you'll examine the state of AI today and where we might be headed in coming years. To explain today's AI capabilities, authors Ben Lorica and Mike Loukides look at prominent examples such as Google's AlphaGo, self-driving cars, and face recognition—AIs that consist of narrow solutions to specific problems. Can researchers develop general intelligence flexible enough for an AI to learn without supervision, or choose what it wants to learn? This report takes a deeper look into: The meaning of "general intelligence" when applied to AIs Moving AIs from supervised learning to unsupervised learning Why AIs can easily solve problems that humans find challenging, but not problems that humans find easy The differences between autonomous AIs and assistive AIs that augment our intelligence Factors that have made AI a hot topic in recent years Today's successful AI systems, such as machine learning and computer vision OpenAI and the push to make AI research open and visible to the public
