Book Short Summary:

Jack the Ripper and legacy codebases have more in common than you'd think. Inspired by forensic psychology methods, you'll learn strategies to predict the future of your codebase, assess refactoring direction, and understand how your team influences the design. With its unique blend of forensic psychology and code analysis, this book arms you with the strategies you need, no matter what programming language you use. Software is a living entity that's constantly changing. To understand software systems, we need to know where they came from and how they evolved. By mining commit data and analyzing the history of your code, you can start fixes ahead of time to eliminate broken designs, maintenance issues, and team productivity bottlenecks. In this book, you'll learn forensic psychology techniques to successfully maintain your software. You'll create a geographic profile from your commit data to find hotspots, and apply temporal coupling concepts to uncover hidden relationships between unrelated areas in your code. You'll also measure the effectiveness of your code improvements. You'll learn how to apply these techniques on projects both large and small. For small projects, you'll get new insights into your design and how well the code fits your ideas. For large projects, you'll identify the good and the fragile parts. Large-scale development is also a social activity, and the team's dynamics influence code quality. That's why this book shows you how to uncover social biases when analyzing the evolution of your system. You'll use commit messages as eyewitness accounts to what is really happening in your code. Finally, you'll put it all together by tracking organizational problems in the code and finding out how to fix them. Come join the hunt for better code! What You Need: You need Java 6 and Python 2.7 to run the accompanying analysis tools. You also need Git to follow along with the examples.

Book Short Summary:

This book introduces the key concepts of Java programming through the eyes of a small ladybug called Clara. Clara is a fun and extremely obedient insect, whose journey starts with limited skills. Readers learn programming by making Clara move around and manipulate objects in her world. As the book progresses, Clara becomes more intelligent and acquires new skills and (together with readers) learns by tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. The book explains programming concepts through real-world problems such as launching rockets into space, automatically patching potholes, developing a vacuum cleaner robot, simulating projectile motion, dynamically avoiding obstacles, delivering mail, etc. Every chapter of the book starts by presenting a challenge and then continues to explain new programming concepts with the focus on tackling this challenge. Focusing the new material explanation on these challenges helps to remind the readers of how this material is connected with the problems that they may encounter in the real world and makes it easier to relate to. You can explore all programming challenges presented in this book on the Clara’s World website. Every programming problem covered in the book has a corresponding link to a problem template (for those readers willing to attempt the problem themselves), the link to the solution of this problem and a video recording of us solving this problem step-by-step. In addition, at the end of each chapter there is a link to fun exercises that readers are recommended to complete.

  • Pdf File: refactoring-with-relations-a-new-method-for-refactoring-object-oriented-software.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This electronic book discusses refactoring with support from the relational model of computer programs. Code in all programming languages needs refactoring, and a multi-language refactoring engine is needed to refactor that code. Refactoring is about structure, and the book is about structure. The book proceeds to discuss the structure of code, argues that it needs to be identified, separated from language constructs, and encapsulated into a container. The encapsulated structure is preserved in a pristine state and serves as an invariant point of reference for the refactoring transformations.The book defines "bad" code as one with a damaged structure and "good" code as one with a properly encapsulated and logically sound structure. The book proposes the relational model as the container for the structure of the program and to serve as a language-independent, non-object-oriented repository with sufficient information to support refactoring. Relations are covered as a fundamental mathematical tool used to describe structure. The model can be created from existing code by a specialized parser, and a sparse matrix partitioning algorithm can create the refactored classes by recursively encapsulating user types. The combination of the model and the algorithm makes automatic polyglot refactoring of computer code possible. The model provides for integration of refactoring tools and development tools into one platform.The book also demonstrates that deep refactoring converts "bad" code into Strong Ownership code, a programming style described in the book, and demonstrates that the need for refactoring may be reduced by following the Strong Ownership prescriptions during development. The book includes many practical examples, presents experimental evidence, discusses various applications and possible implementations, and covers details of the process of refactoring with relational support, as well as the conversion from the model to final object-oriented code.Relational support for refactoring is a new concept. The production of tools will take time, meanwhile, developers are advised to mind Strong Ownership techniques. This is an 83-page eBook in PDF format presenting refactoring in a new light and a much larger scale. Downloads are provided and a page sample is available from SciControls.com. The page sample is a pdf file with the preface, table of contents, index, and some selected pages.

Book Short Summary:

With more than a million dedicated programmers, Perl has proven to be the best computing language for the latest trends in computing and business. While other languages have stagnated, Perl remains fresh, thanks to its community-based development model, which encourages the sharing of information among users. This tradition of knowledge-sharing allows developers to find answers to almost any Perl question they can dream up. And you can find many of those answers right here in Perl Hacks. Like all books in O'Reilly's Hacks Series, Perl Hacks appeals to a variety of programmers, whether you're an experienced developer or a dabbler who simply enjoys exploring technology. Each hack is a short lesson--some are practical exercises that teach you essential skills, while others merely illustrate some of the fun things that Perl can do. Most hacks have two parts: a direct answer to the immediate problem you need to solve right now and a deeper, subtler technique that you can adapt to other situations. Learn how to add CPAN shortcuts to the Firefox web browser, read files backwards, write graphical games in Perl, and much more. For your convenience, Perl Hacks is divided by topic--not according toany sense of relative difficulty--so you can skip around and stop at any hack you like. Chapters include: Productivity Hacks User Interaction Data Munging Working with Modules Object Hacks Debugging Whether you're a newcomer or an expert, you'll find great value in Perl Hacks, the only Perl guide that offers somethinguseful and fun for everyone.

Book Short Summary:

With plenty of ideas, suggestions, and practical cases on software quality, this book will help you to improve the quality of your software and to deliver high-quality products to your users and satisfy the needs of your customers and stakeholders. Many methods for product quality improvement start by investigating the problems, and then work their way back to the point where the problem started. For instance audits and root cause analysis work this way. But what if you could prevent problems from happening, by building an understanding what drives quality, thus enabling to take action before problems actually occur? What Drives Quality explores how quality plays a role in all of the software development activities. It takes a deep dive into quality by listing the relevant factors of development and management activities that drive the quality of software products. It provides a lean approach to quality by analyzing the full development chain from customer requests to delivering products to users. I'm aiming this book at software developers and testers, architects, product owners and managers, agile coaches, Scrum masters, project managers, and operational and senior managers who consider quality to be important. A book on quality should be practical. It should help you, the reader of this book, to improve the quality of your software and deliver better products. It should inspire you and give you energy to persevere on your quality journey. What drives quality tries to do just that, and more. This book is based on my experience as a developer, tester, team leader, project manager, quality manager, process manager, consultant, coach, trainer, and adviser in Agile, Lean, Quality and Continuous Improvement. It takes a deep dive into quality with views from different perspectives and provides ideas, suggestions, practices, and experiences that will help you to improve quality of the products that your organization is delivering. This book views software quality from an engineering, management, and social perspective. It explores the interaction between all involved in delivering high-quality software to users and provides ideas to do it quicker and at lower costs.
