About the Technology
The Raspberry Pi is a small, low-cost computer invented to encourage experimentation. The Pi is a snap to set up, and using the free Python programming language, you can learn to create video games, control robots, and maybe even write programs to do your math homework!
About the Book
Hello Raspberry Pi! is a fun way for kids to take their first steps programming on a Raspberry Pi. First, you discover how to set up and navigate the Pi. Next, begin Python programming by learning basic concepts with engaging challenges and games. This book gives you an introduction to computer programming as you gain the confidence to explore, learn, and create on your own. The last part of the book introduces you to the world of computer control of physical objects, where you create interactive projects with lights, buttons, and sounds.
About the Reader
To use this book, you'll need a Raspberry Pi starter kit, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. No programming experience needed.
Table of Contents
This book gives an introduction to the programming language Scala. It presents it from a functional programming perspective. The book explains with detail functional programming and recursivity, and includes chapters on lazy and eager evaluation, streams, higher-order functions (including map, fold, reduce, and aggregate), and algebraic data types. The book also describes the object-oriented aspects of Scala, as they are a fundamental part of the language. In addition, the book includes a chapter on parallelism in Scala, giving an overview of the actor model.
The demand for SQL information and training continues to grow with the need for a database behind every website capable of offering web-based information queries. SQL is the de facto standard for database retrieval, and if you need to access, update, or utilize data in a modern database management system, youÂ will need SQL to do it. The Second Edition of Joe Celko's Trees and Hierarchies in SQL for Smarties covers two new sets of extensions over three entirelyÂ new chapters and expounds upon the changes that have occurred in SQL standards since the previous edition's publication. Benefit from mastering the challenging aspects of these database applications in SQL as taught by Joe Celko, one of the most-read SQL authors in the world.
A Functional Start to Computing with Python enables students to quickly learn computing without having to use loops, variables, and object abstractions at the start. Requiring no prior programming experience, the book draws on Pythonâs flexible data types and operations as well as its capacity for defining new functions. Along with the specifics of Python, the text covers important concepts of computing, including software engineering motivation, algorithms behind syntax rules, advanced functional programming ideas, and, briefly, finite state machines.
Taking a student-friendly, interactive approach to teach computing, the book addresses more difficult concepts and abstractions later in the text. The author presents ample explanations of data types, operators, and expressions. He also describes comprehensionsâthe powerful specifications of lists and dictionariesâbefore introducing loops and variables. This approach helps students better understand assignment syntax and iteration by giving them a mental model of sophisticated data first.

This volume is published in Honor of PhilipWadler on the occasion of his 60th birthday, and the collection of papers forma Festschrift for him. The contributions are made by some of the many who knowPhil and have been influenced by him. The research papers included hererepresent some of the areas in which Phil has been active, and the editorsthank their colleagues for agreeing to contribute to this Festschrift. We attemptto summarize Phil Wadler's scientific achievements. In addition, we describethe personal style and enthusiasm that Phil has brought to the subject.
Teaching programming for engineers in a rigorous manner, this volume introduces pointer-based memory manipulation in the first chapter, and moves on from C to Matlab and Octave programming, all of which are important methods for engineers in any sector.
A complete guide on using data structures and algorithms to write sophisticated C# code
Data structures allow organizing data efficiently. They are critical to various problems and their suitable implementation can provide a complete solution that acts like reusable code. In this book, you will learn how to use various data structures while developing in the C# language as well as how to implement some of the most common algorithms used with such data structures.
At the beginning, you will get to know arrays, lists, dictionaries, and sets together with real-world examples of your application. Then, you will learn how to create and use stacks and queues. In the following part of the book, the more complex data structures will be introduced, namely trees and graphs, together with some algorithms for searching the shortest path in a graph. We will also discuss how to organize the code in a manageable, consistent, and extendable way. By the end of the book,you will learn how to build components that are easy to understand, debug, and use in different applications.
This book is for developers who would like to learn the Data Structures and Algorithms in C#. Basic C# programming knowledge would be an added advantage.
This book is meant for undergraduate students and users of MATLAB programs and those who want to be in pace with the developing technology. As C is used in a variety of areas from software development to hardware programming, including embedded system or driver writing or system programming, it is essential to have knowledge of this particular language.This book will serve a large spectrum of programmers as well as MATLAB users of various fields both in academia and scientific research.This book is arranged in two sections, namely, C11 and MATLAB. C11 section includes on the spot explanation of the program structure/ skeleton in the beginning and leads towards larger program development by using various basic building materials of the language. This book mostly depicts programs using the concept discussed in that chapter.MATLAB section is included for the UG students to have sound knowledge of MATLAB so that they can use this language for their research purposes.
