The book gives readers a practical introduction to reactive programming with Actor Model. The reader is given a brief but detailed background on using the Scala programming language and how to program using Scala and the Akka toolkit. After covering the basics and establishing a foundation, the book takes readers through a series of message-based integration cookbook solutions, including: Messaging Systems, Messaging Channels, Message Construction, Message Routing, Message Transportation, Message Endpoints, and System Management. The book follows the proven method presented in ´´Enterprise Integration Patterns´´ by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf, but gives solutions based on the use of Scala and Akka.

LabVIEW programming techniques, tips, and practices Learn to build effective LabVIEW programs using the detailed information contained in this thoroughly revised resource. This edition updates all content to align with the latest version and adds new chapters that clearly explain object-oriented programming methods, and programming in teams using the cloud. LabVIEW Graphical Programming, Fifth Edition begins with basics for beginners and quickly progresses to intermediate and advanced programming techniques. Written by a pair of LabVIEW experts, this hands-on guide shows how to work with data types, start building your own applications, handle I/O, and use the DAQmix library. You will also find out how to build applications that communicate with enterprise message brokers and with Amazon Web Services´ Internet of Things (IoT) message broker. Coverage includes: .The origin and evolution of LabVIEW .LabVIEW programming fundamentals .Data acquisition .Object-oriented programming in LabVIEW .Frameworks, including the Delacor Queued Message Handler (DQMH®) and Actor Framework .Unit testing .Enterprise and IoT messaging .Programming in teams using the cloud
Your software needs to leverage multiple cores, handle thousands of users and terabytes of data, and continue working in the face of both hardware and software failure. Concurrency and parallelism are the keys, and Seven Concurrency Models in Seven Weeks equips you for this new world. See how emerging technologies such as actors and functional programming address issues with traditional threads and locks development. Learn how to exploit the parallelism in your computer´s GPU and leverage clusters of machines with MapReduce and Stream Processing. And do it all with the confidence that comes from using tools that help you write crystal clear, high-quality code.
Akka in Action is a comprehensive tutorial on building message-oriented systems using Akka. The audiobook takes a hands-on approach, where each new concept is followed by an example that shows you how it works, how to implement the code, and how to (unit) test it. Akka makes it relatively easy to build applications in the cloud or on devices with many cores that efficiently use the full capacity of the computing power available. It´s a toolkit that provides an actor programming model, a runtime, and required support tools for building scalable applications. Akka in Action shows you how to build message-oriented systems with Akka. This comprehensive, hands-on tutorial introduces each concept with a working example. You´ll start with the big picture of how Akka works and then quickly build and deploy a fully functional REST service out of actors. You´ll explore test-driven development and deploying and scaling fault-tolerant systems. After mastering the basics, you´ll discover how to model immutable messages, implement domain models, and apply techniques like event sourcing and CQRS. You´ll also find a tutorial on building streaming applications using akka-stream and akka-http. Finally, you´ll get practical advice on how to customize and extend your Akka system. What´s inside:Getting concurrency right Testing and performance tuning Clustered and cloud-based applications Covers Akka version 2.4 This audiobook assumes you´re comfortable with Java and Scala. No prior experience with Akka required. A software craftsman and architect, Raymond Roestenburg is an Akka committer. Rob Bakker specializes in concurrent back-end systems and systems integration. Rob Williams has more than 20 years of product-development experience.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along wi 1.

It´s the summer of 1942 at radio station WHAR on the New Jersey coast. As bombs fall on Britain, a troupe of gallant actors, sound effects people, writers, and producers explores the promise of this exhilarating medium, struggling to create programming that entertains, informs, and enlightens its listeners. Into this intense community come Jack Dulaney and Holly Carnahan, determined to find Holly´s missing father, who sent his last desperate missive from this noisy seaside town. Holly sings like an angel and quickly becomes a star. Jack - a onetime novelist who´s hit every kind of trouble - gets hooked by the extraordinary power of radio and discovers that he can write scripts with the best of them. Holly´s father is nowhere to be found, and soon it seems that his disappearance may be linked to an English actor who walked out of the station six years earlier and was never seen again. It is a link that some people will do anything to hide - including murder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Boyd Gaines.

Save time and trouble when using Scala to build object-oriented, functional, and concurrent applications. With more than 250 ready-to-use recipes and 700 code examples, this comprehensive cookbook covers the most common problems you?ll encounter when using the Scala language, libraries, and tools. It?s ideal not only for experienced Scala developers, but also for programmers learning to use this JVM language. Author Alvin Alexander (creator of DevDaily.com) provides solutions based on his experience using Scala for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. Packed with real-world scenarios, this book provides recipes for: * Strings, numeric types, and control structures * Classes, methods, objects, traits, and packaging * Functional programming in a variety of situations * Collections covering Scala´s wealth of classes and methods * Concurrency, using the Akka Actors library * Using the Scala REPL and the Simple Build Tool (SBT) * Web services on both the client and server sides * Interacting with SQL and NoSQL databases * Best practices in Scala development
A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America´s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. The ´´Golden Age´´ of television was in part so named because it was the era in which new technology was pioneered and industry rules were still being written. Here was a fascinating new medium, founded by executives with no previous body of experience, and a myriad of directions in which to proceed. Numerous factions spent the next generation wresting control over content and the content/product relationship. Some envisioned a public service and educational medium, while others sought sophisticated entertainment. With profit as the determining motive, executives and sponsors sought only what would evoke the most lucrative response. The term ´´Golden Age´´ also applies to the reality that much of the television programming in the 1950s was offered up as live performance, a dangerous and exciting time for both writers and actors. As pioneer director John Frankenheimer put it, ´´There were no old days. We were the old days.´´ Frankenheimer went on to associate with one of the age´s best and most prolific TV writers, Rod Serling, an enduring name in the realm of philosophical fright and ironic reflections of human injustice. 1.
