    The Linux Programming Interface is the definitive guide to the Linux and UNIX programming interface-the interface employed by nearly every application that runs on a Linux or UNIX system. In this authoritative work, Linux programming expert Michael Kerrisk provides detailed descriptions of the system calls and library functions that you need in order to master the craft of system programming, and accompanies his explanations with clear, complete example programs. You'll find descriptions of over 500 system calls and library functions, and more than 200 example programs, 88 tables, and 115 diagrams. You'll learn how to: * Read and write files efficiently * Use signals, clocks, and timers * Create processes and execute programs * Write secure programs * Write multithreaded programs using POSIX threads * Build and use shared libraries * Perform interprocess communication using pipes, message queues, shared memory, and semaphores * Write network applications with the sockets API While The Linux Programming Interface covers a wealth of Linux-specific features, including epoll, inotify, and the /proc file system, its emphasis on UNIX standards (POSIX.1-2001/SUSv3 and POSIX.1 -2008/SUSv4) makes it equally valuable to programmers working on other UNIX platforms. The Linux Programming Interface is the most comprehensive single-volume work on the Linux and UNIX programming interface, and a book that's destined to become a new classic. Praise for The Linux Programming Interface "If I had to choose a single book to sit next to my machine when writing software for Linux, this would be it." --Martin Landers, Software Engineer, Google "This book, with its detailed descriptions and examples, contains everything you need to understand the details and nuances of the low-level programming APIs in Linux ...no matter what the level of reader, there will be something to be learnt from this book." --Mel Gorman, Author of Understanding the Linux Virtual Memory Manager "Michael Kerrisk has not only written a great book about Linux programming and how it relates to various standards, but has also taken care that bugs he noticed got fixed and the man pages were (greatly) improved. In all three ways, he has made Linux programming easier. The in-depth treatment of topics in The Linux Programming Interface ...makes it a must-have reference for both new and experienced Linux programmers. " --Andreas Jaeger, Program Manager, openSUSE, Novell "Michael's inexhaustible determination to get his information right, and to express it clearly and concisely, has resulted in a strong reference source for programmers. While this work is targeted at Linux programmers, it will be of value to any programmer working in the UNIX/POSIX ecosystem." --David Butenhof, Author of Programming with POSIX Threads and Contributor to the POSIX and UNIX Standards "...a very thorough-yet easy to read-explanation of UNIX system and network programming, with an emphasis on Linux systems. It's certainly a book I'd recommend to anybody wanting to get into UNIX programming (in general) or to experienced UNIX programmers wanting to know 'what's new' in the popular GNU/Linux system." --Fernando Gont, Network Security Researcher, IETF Participant, and RFC Author "...encyclopedic in the breadth and depth of its coverage, and textbook-like in its wealth of worked examples and exercises. Each topic is clearly and comprehensively covered, from theory to hands-on working code. Professionals, students, educators, this is the Linux/UNIX reference that you have been waiting for." --Anthony Robins, Associate Professor of Computer Science, The University of Otago "I've been very impressed by the precision, the quality and the level of detail Michael Kerrisk put in his book. He is a great expert of Linux system calls and lets us share his knowledge and understanding of the Linux APIs." --Christophe Blaess, Author of Programmation systeme en C sous Linux "...an essential resource for the serious or ...

    Microsoft's new Internet of Things (IoT) technologies enable you to build and program custom devices with virtually any functionality you can imagine. Programming for the Internet of Things guides you step-by-step to mastery, helping you take full advantage of Windows 10 IoT Core, Azure IoT Suite, and all related elements of Microsoft's IoT solution. Written by a leading embedded programmer and Microsoft technology expert, this guide covers both the essentials of device programming and the specific C# techniques you'll need to build and operate virtually any device or robot. Dawid Borycki first explains how embedded programming differs from desktop, web, and mobile app programming. Next, he covers intermediate features such as reading data from sensors (e.g., temperature, humidity, acceleration), and communicating with other devices. He then proceeds to advanced material, including robot vision (image processing) and hearing systems (audio processing), and teaching robots to detect and report abnormal sensor readings. You'll learn how to program relatively simple devices such as distributed detectors -- and also how to program complex robot vision and environment monitoring systems. Along the way, Borycki shows how to make the most of Windows 10 IoT Core, Universal Windows Platform, C#, C++/CX, XAML, Visual Studio 2015, serial communication (UART, USB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth), AllJoyn connectivity, Microsoft's Azure IoT Suite and Azure Machine Learning cloud solutions, and OpenCV. All code examples are presented in C#, and Borycki also shows how to interface modern .NET and UWP apps with unmanaged and legacy embedded code via C++/CX.

    Windows 8.1 has taken may of the rough edges off of Windows 8. Between Windows 8 and 8.1, Microsoft extensively revised the preinstalled Windows 8 apps, updated the Windows Store, improved Skydrive integration, and took user criticism to heart in making the transition between "Modern" apps and Desktop apps less disruptive. In addition, many more management tasks are accomplished in the new "PC Settings" user interface, rather than the traditional Control Panel, and we show users how and when (and when not to) take advantage of this. Whether you have a traditional PC or a souped-up tablet with a touch screen, Windows 8.1 In Depth is just the guide you need to get through the learning curve and become a Windows 8.1 Pro. The authors of Windows 8.1 In Depth have scaled the steepest part of the learning curve for you, and give you great guidance from the first page to the last, from your first hour with Windows 8.1, to long-term management and maintenance tasks. This book is a reference with a great number of step-by-step procedures that take a Windows user through even the most complex configuration and management tasks. The book starts with an overview of what makes Windows 8.1 so different from previous versions of Windows, takes the reader on a guided tour of the most important interface changes and offers a bunch of critical tips and tricks, then delves into more advanced configuration and maintenance tasks. The later chapters of the book are usually seen as reference material, to be used when those hard-to-understand management tasks come up in the future. Covering all the new features between Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 In Depth is the only book you'll need.
