With its visually rich format designed for
the way the brain works, this book gives
readers hands-on experience working
with the SQL database language. With
it, they will create simple schemas and
databases, and perform simple and then
increasingly complex data manipulation
while learning SQL. Tis book is not an
SQL reference, but a series of engaging
narrative lessons that build on each
other. It leaves the reader with a solid
foundation in the SQL language and the
logic necessary to use it well.

To help web sites display faster and perform
better, this book presents 14 specifc rules that
will cut 20% to 25% of response time when
users request a page. Author Steve Souders, in
his job as Chief Performance Yahoo!, developed
these best practices while optimizing some of
the most-visited pages on the Web. Supported
by examples, the rules focus on what a web page
does, rather than require readers to redesign
their web sites.

Te Qt toolkit is widely used for the
development of GUI applications as well as
console tools and servers. Qt is most notably
used in KDE, a free Linux desktop, the Opera
web browser, Skype, and Google Earth. Daniel
Molkentin, author of this book, is a core
developer of KDE. He uses practical examples
to explain Qt characteristics like the signal slot
concept and its event system. He guides the
reader through developing applications both
with and without Qt’s graphical GUI builder
“Qt Designer.” Topics covered include: tools
needed to create dialog boxes; steps to follow
when developing a GUI-based application;
layout; how to visualize data using Qt’s “model-
view concept”; the QtSql model; the graphics
library; as well as how to work with XML,
databases, threads, and debugging. Te book
also includes lots of useful hints on how to use
Qt’s own datatypes, containers and algorithms
and how to develop user-friendly applications.

break the LEGO Company’s rules for building
with LEGO bricks—rules against building
projects that fre projectiles; cutting or gluing
bricks; and using non-standard parts. Many of
these are backroom projects that LEGO’s master
designers build under the LEGO radar, just to
have fun. Te projects use LEGO bricks as well
as common household materials (such as plastic
spoons, ping pong balls, and candy). Readers
learn to create objects that LEGO would never
endorse, such as a gun that shoots plastic pellets,
a catapult for launching candy, and a multi-

Moore’s Law is the observation that the
amount you can do on a single chip doubles
every two years. But Moore’s Law is taking a
detour. Rather than producing faster and faster
processors, companies such as Intel and AMD
are producing multi-core devices: single chips
containing two, four, or more processors. If your
programs aren’t concurrent, they’ll only run on a
single processor at a time. Your users will think
that your code is slow.

for building highly parallel, distributed, fault-

Craig Walls, one of Manning’s best writers, has
produced a much expanded and completely
updated edition to cover the exciting new
features of the just-released Spring 2.0. Te
book is a hands-on, example-driven exploration
of the Spring framework. Combining short code
snippets and an ongoing example developed
through the book, it shows readers how to build
simple and efcient J2EE applications, how to
solve persistence problems, handle asynchronous
messaging, create and consume remote services,
build web applications, and integrate with most
popular web frameworks. Readers will learn how
to use Spring to write simpler, easier to maintain
code so they can focus on what really matters--
critical business needs.

In test driven development, you frst write
an executable test of what your application
code must do. Only then do you write the
code itself and, with the test spurring you
on, you improve your design. In acceptance
test driven development (ATDD), you
usethe same technique to implement product
features, benefting from iterative development,
rapid feedback cycles, and better-defned
requirements. TDD and its supporting tools and
techniques lead to better software faster.
Test Driven brings under one cover practical
TDD techniques distilled from several years of
community experience. With examples in Java
and the Java EE environment, it explores both
the techniques and the mindset of TDD and
ATDD. It uses carefully chosen examples to
illustrate TDD tools and design patterns, not in
the abstract but concretely in the context of the
technologies you face at work.It is accessible to
TDD beginners, and it ofers efective and less
well known techniques to older TDD hands.

Tis book will give Live novices an insight into
working methods that otherwise would take
months to discover. For the most experienced
user it promises a quick catch-up with Live
6’s new developments (including complex
new performance features, and long-awaited
improvements and additions on the production
side), and a new perspective on some of Live’s
more established features.
Tis book does not duplicate the Live user
manual, it expands upon it, and introduces
creative concepts, workfow enhancements,
and workrounds for common objectives and
problems. It also includes interviews with high-
profle Live users in a variety of musical genres,
passing on their real-world experiences to you.
Although the Live interface is remarkably
simple, there’s a lot of power under the surface.
Tis book will show you new ways to access that
power.
