Do you want to learn programming, but you are too intimidated by the complexity? At some point, every computer guy starts to have a feeling of making a computer program. However, most of them never make a move towards this feel because computer programming sounds scary. In fact, computer programming isn’t scary at all. All it takes is a correct selection of programming language to begin your journey as a computer programmer. Programming languages are made to make the human life better than before. These languages help in making programs which increase the overall productivity, communication, and efficiency of the work. Out of so many programming languages to choose from, python is one of the most loved programming languages among computer geeks. This is because python is one of those rare languages that is both simple and powerful. Python has everything that you may require to make a new program. If you will see someone writing a program in python, you will be really surprised to see how easy it is in python to find the solution for a problem. In simple words, python is an open source, a high-level programming language developed by Guido van Rossum in 1980s. This language is presently administered by Python Software Foundation. Python has proven its worth in all these years for both business and industrial use. Unlike other languages, it didn’t go obsolete and in fact, with time, the use of Python has increased. Python is broadly used in making web applications, GUIs (Graphic user interface), games, etc., and writing and reading the codes in python is as simple as reading regular English sentences. The program written in python is required to be processed before running as they are not written in machine readable language. Once you will learn the basics of python (as you are a beginner), you will find it really easy to move on towards the advanced features that python offers to programmers. 1. Language: English.

The Most Complete, Authoritative Guide to Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X Cocoa® Programming Developer´s Handbook is a comprehensive, practical reference that brings together all the knowledge, techniques, and code that experienced Mac OS X programmers need to build rich, powerful Cocoa applications. It fully reflects the latest Cocoa innovations, including the latest architectural changes and tools introduced with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). David Chisnall addresses virtually every aspect of Cocoa application development, from advanced multimedia programming to networking. Chisnall offers deep wisdom about issues ranging from user interface design to system programming-insights available nowhere else. Each of his examples demonstrates a single aspect of the Cocoa API and illuminates modern best practices. Coverage includes Combining Cocoa Foundation and Application Kit to layer rich, modern application features atop efficient low-level functions Mastering the Cocoa application model, including events and drawing Developing document-driven applications with Cocoa Utilizing the new Core Data framework to automate persistence in documents Building more sophisticated user interfaces with advanced View Objects Using Core Animation to create intricate animated objects with very little code Taking advantage of OS X´s speech recognition and synthesis APIs Using System-wide Address Book, Metadata Indexing, and Previewing to integrate applications smoothly into the OS X environment Mastering networking and other low-level system programming features Utilizing Cocoa´s new concurrency mechanisms, including Snow Leopard´s Grand Central This book is the perfect follow-up to Aaron Hillegass´ renowned tutorial, Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X, Third Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2008), and is the ideal single-source reference for experienced developers working with Cocoa on the Mac OS X or iPhone platforms. A companion web site contains extensive downloadable source code designed for easy reuse, plus additional material on effective Cocoa programming. Product Description The Cocoa programming environment-Apple´s powerful set of clean, object-oriented APIs-is increasingly becoming the basis of almost all contemporary Mac OS X development. With its long history of constant refinement and improvement, Cocoa has matured into a sophisticated programming environment that can make Mac OS X application development quick, efficient, and even fun. Yet for all its refined elegance and ease of use, the staggering size of the Cocoa family of APIs and the vast magnitude of the official documentation can be intimidating to even seasoned programmers. To help Mac OS X developers sort through and begin to put to practical use Cocoa´s vast array of tools and technologies, Cocoa Programming Developer´s Handbook provides a guided tour of the Cocoa APIs found on Mac OS X, thoroughly discussing-and showing in action-Cocoa´s core frameworks and other vital components, as well as calling attention to some of the more interesting but often overlooked parts of the APIs and tools. This book provides expert insight into a wide range of key topics, from user interface design to network programming and performance tuning.

The rousing story of the last gasp of human agency and how today’s best and brightest minds are endeavoring to put an end to it. It used to be that to diagnose an illness, interpret legal documents, analyze foreign policy, or write a newspaper article you needed a human being with specific skills - and maybe an advanced degree or two. These days, high-level tasks are increasingly being handled by algorithms that can do precise work not only with speed but also with nuance. These ´´bots´´ started with human programming and logic, but now their reach extends beyond what their creators ever expected. In this fascinating, frightening audiobook, Christopher Steiner tells the story of how algorithms took over - and shows why the ´´bot revolution´´ is about to spill into every aspect of our lives, often silently, without our knowledge. The May 2010 ´´Flash Crash´´ exposed Wall Street’s reliance on trading bots to the tune of a 998-point market drop and $1 trillion in vanished market value. But that was just the beginning. In Automate This, we meet bots that drive cars, pen haikus, and write music mistaken for Bach’s. They listen in on our customer service calls and figure out what Iran would do in the event of a nuclear standoff. There are algorithms that can pick out the most cohesive crew of astronauts for a space mission or identify the next Jeremy Lin. Some can even ingest statistics from baseball games and spit out pitch-perfect sports journalism indistinguishable from that produced by humans. The interaction of man and machine can make our lives easier. But what will the world look like when algorithms control our hospitals, our roads, our culture, and our national security? What happens to businesses when we automate judgment and eliminate human instinct? And what role will be left for doctors, lawyers, writers, truck drivers, and many others? Who knows - maybe there’s a bot learning to do your job right this minute. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Walter Dixon.
