Item Description: Shroff Publishers/Pragmatic Bookshelf, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 18 x 23 cm. This book is a recipe-based approach to using the CVS Version Control system that will get you up and running quickly--and correctly. All projects need version control: it`s a foundational piece of any project`s infrastructure. Yet half of all project teams in the U.S. don`t use any version control at all. Many others don`t use it well, and end up experiencing time-consuming problems. Version Control, done well, is your "undo" button for the project: nothing is final, and mistakes are easily rolled back. With version control, you`ll never again lose a good idea because someone overwrote your file edits. You can always find out easily who made what changes to the source code--and why. Version control is a project-wide time machine. Dial in a date and see exactly what the entire project looked like yesterday, last Tuesday, or even last year. This book describes a practical, easy-to-follow way of using CVS, the most commonly used version control system in the world (and it`s available for free). Instead of presenting the grand Theory of Version Control and describing every possible option (whether you`d ever use it or not), this book focuses on the practical application of CVS. It builds a set of examples of use that parallel the life of typical projects, showing you how to adopt and then enhance your pragmatic use of CVS. With this book, you can: Keep project all assets (not just source code) safe, and never run the risk of losing a great idea Know how to undo bad decisions--no matter when they were made Learn how to share code safely, and work in parallel for maximum efficiency See how to avoid costly code freezes Manage 3rd party code Now there`s no excuse not to use professional-grade version control.

Item Description: Shroff Publishers/Pragmatic Bookshelf, 2004. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 18 x 23 cm. Learn how to improve your Java coding skills using unit testing. Despite it`s name, unit testing is really a coding technique, not a testing technique. Unit testing is done by programmers, for programmers. It`s primarily for our benefit: we get improved confidence in our code, better ability to make deadlines, less time spent in the debugger, and less time beating on the code to make it work correctly. This book shows how to write tests, but more importantly, it goes where other books fear to tread and gives you concrete advice and examples of what to test--the common things that go wrong in all of our programs. Discover the tricky hiding places where bugs breed, and how to catch them using the freely available JUnit framework. It`s easy to learn how to think of all the things in your code that are likely to break. We`ll show you how with helpful mnemonics, summarized in a handy tip sheet to help you remember all this stuff. With this book you will: Write better code, and take less time to write it Discover the tricky places where bugs breed Learn how to think of all the things that could go wrong Test individual pieces of code without having to include the whole project Test effectively with the whole team We`ll also cover how to use Mock Objects for testing, how to write high quality test code, and how to use unit testing to improve your design skills. We`ll show you frequent "gotchas"--along with the fixes--to save you time when problems come up. We`ll show you how with helpful mnemonics, summarized in a handy tip sheet But the best part is that you don`t need a sweeping mandate to change your whole team or your whole company. You don`t need to adopt Extreme Programming or Test-Driven Development, or change your development process in order to reap the proven benefits of unit testing. You can start unit testing, the pragmatic way, right away. Printed Pages: 160. Bookseller Inventory # 54348

New for the Second Edition: Updated for NUnit 2.4 (C#, .NET 2.0, Visual Studio 2005, and Mono) More NUnit assert methods New String and Collection assertion support Better support for multiple-platform development (Mono and .NET) Higher-level setup and teardown fixtures .and more! Without good tests in place, coding can become a frustrating game of "whack-a-mole." That?s the carnival game where the player strikes at a mechanical mole; it retreats and another mole pops up on the opposite side of the field. The moles pop up and down so fast that you end up flailing your mallet helplessly as the moles continue to pop up where you least expect them. You need automated testing and regression testing to keep the moles from popping up. You don?t test a bridge by driving a single car over it right down the middle lane on a clear, calm day. Yet many programmers approach testing that same way?one pass right down the middle and they call it "tested." Pragmatic programmers can do better than that! With this book, you will: Write better code, faster Discover the best hiding places where C# bugs breed Learn how to think of all the things that could go wrong Test pieces of code without using the whole .NET project Use NUnit to simplify your C# test code Test effectively with the whole team Real software unit testing will make your life easier. It will make your software design and architecture better and drastically reduce the amount of time you spend debugging you .NET code. Printed Pages: 250. Bookseller Inventory # 54343

Item Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original ed.. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.From the early years of fur trading to today s Silicon Valley empires, America has proved to be an extraordinarily fertile land for the creation of enormous fortunes. Each generation has produced one or two phenomenally successful leaders, often in new industries that caught contemporaries by surprise, and each of these new fortunes reconfirmed the power of fanatically single-minded visionaries. John Jacob Astor and Cornelius Vanderbilt were the first American moguls; John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and J. P. Morgan were kingpins of the Gilded Age; David Sarnoff, Walt Disney, Ray Kroc, and Sam Walton were masters of mass culture. Today Oprah Winfrey, Andy Grove, and Bill Gates are giants of the Information Age. America has again and again been the land of dizzying mountains of wealth. Here, in a wittily told and deeply insightful history, is a complete set of portraits of America s greatest generators of wealth. Only such a collective study allows us to appreciate what makes the great entrepreneurs really tick. As H. W. Brands shows, these men and women are driven, they are focused, they deeply identify with the businesses they create, and they possess the charisma necessary to persuade other talented people to join them. They do it partly for the money, but mostly for the thrill of creation. The stories told here -- including how Nike got its start as a business-school project for Phil Knight; how Robert Woodruff almost refused to take control of Coca-Cola to spite his father; how Thomas Watson saved himself from prison by rescuing Dayton, Ohio, from a flood; how Jay Gould nearly cornered the gold market; how H. L. Hunt went from gambling at cards to gambling with oil leases -- make for a narrative that is always lively and revealing and often astonishing. An observer in 1850, studying John Jacob Astor, would not have predicted the rise of Henry Ford and the auto industry. Nor would a student of Ford in 1950 have anticipated the takeoff of direct marketing that made Mary Kay Ash a trusted guide for millions of American women. Full of surprising insights, written with H. W. Brands s trademark flair, the stories in Masters of Enterprise are must reading for all students of American business history.
