The Code Check series provides answers to all types of building code questions. The books are filled with essential information, yet are handy enough to take to the job site. Provides information on the requirements for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. It is cross-referenced to both the Uniform Mechanical Code and the International Residential Code.
Das NexusTM-Framework ist ein einfacher und effektiver Ansatz, um Scrum in mehreren Teams über verschiedene Standorte und Zeitzonen hinweg erfolgreich anzuwenden.Die Autoren beschreiben, wie Teams mit NexusTM unter Beibehaltung der Scrum-Kernprinzipien ein komplexes, plattformübergreifendes, softwarebasiertes Produkt in kurzen, häufigen Zyklen ohne Einbußen bei der Konsistenz oder Qualität und ohne unnötige zusätzliche Komplexität liefern können. Anhand einer ausführlichen Fallstudie wird dargestellt, wie das Framework beim Umgang mit typischen Herausforderungen der Skalierung, wie der Reduzierung von teamübergreifenden Abhängigkeiten oder dem Erhalt von Selbstorganisation und Transparenz unter den Teams, unterstützt. Im Einzelnen werden behandelt:Herausforderungen bei der Bereitstellung funktionierender, integrierter Produktinkremente mit mehreren TeamsEntwicklung eines neuen oder Weiterentwicklung eines existierenden Produkts mit NexusTMArbeiten mit dem Nexus Sprint Backlog, Ausführen des Nexus Daily Scrum sowie die Durchführung von effektiven Nexus-Sprint-Reviews und Nexus-Sprint-Retrospektiven zur kontinuierlichen VerbesserungManagen eines NexusTM, einschließlich Transparenz des Fortschritts, Verbesserung der Leistungsfähigkeit und des Durchsatzes sowie Beseitigung von EngpässenJeder, der Scrum nutzt, wird von diesem Buch profitieren!

Learn the fundamentals of modern web design, rather than relying on CMS programs, such as WordPress or Joomla!. You will be introduced to the essentials of good design and how to optimize for search engines. You will discover how to register a domain name and migrate a website to a remote host. Because you will have built the web pages yourself, you will know exactly how HTML and CSS work. You have will complete control over your websites and their maintenance. Practical Website Design for Absolute Beginners centers around introducing small amounts of new code in short practical chapters and provides many website templates that can be easily adapted for your own websites. Each chapter builds on the templates created in the previous chapter. You are provided with a practical project to complete in most chapters, and taught to produce practical web pages right from the start. In the first chapter you will install and configure a free text editor, then you will produce the structure for your first web page. You will then gradually learn to create more sophisticated and increasingly practical web pages and websites. In this book you will be encouraged by means of a series of achievable goals, and you will be rewarded by the knowledge that you are learning something valuable and really worthwhile. You will not have to plow through daunting chapters of disembodied code theory because the code is described and explained in context within each project. Because each project is fully illustrated, you will see clearly what you are expected to achieve as you create each web page. What You'll Learn Provides instructions for installing a text editor for producing HTML and CSS Shows you step-by-step how to build and test web pages and websites Teaches you how to ensure that your websites are attractive and useful Describes how to make the most effective use of color and images Teaches you the essential features of search engine optimization Shows you how to migrate your website to a remote host Who This Book Is For Practical Website Design for Absolute Beginners is for people who want to begin designing their own websites. It uses a highly motivational, easily assimilated step-by-step approach where you will start learning practical skills from the very first chapter. The book is an excellent choice for people who have computer skills but would also like to learn HTML and CSS. For readers who have little or no knowledge of HTML and CSS, the book will teach enough to complete all the projects in the book.

A lost cipher. A race against time to decode it. Marine archaeologists Kate Wetherall and Lou Bates are diving off Howland Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, when a torpedo-shaped object hurtles through the water towards them; the fuselage of Amelia Earhart's lost plane. In the cockpit, they find a corroded metal cylinder the size of a baton. Landing back on US soil, Kate and Lou are arrested and interrogated by special forces, and the cylinder confiscated. Behind the arrests is Glena Buckingham, CEO of the powerful energy conglomerate Eurenergy, as she too has discovered that the wrecked plane may have held precious secret cargo. Meanwhile, an extraordinary piece of footage has come to light - of Einstein talking about a radical new defence technology he had been working on. Whoever can decrypt the lost cipher, which holds the key to Einstein's secret defence technology, could hold the key to global power.
What is SPIN? SPIN is a general tool for the specification and formal verification of software for distributed systems. It has been used to detect design errors in a wide range of applications, such as abstract distributed algorithms, data communications protocols, operating systems code, and telephone switching code. The verifier can check for basic correctness properties, such as absence of deadlock and race conditions, logical completeness, or unwarranted assumptions about the relative speeds of processes. It can also check for more subtle, system dependent correctness properties expressed inthe syntax of Linear-time Temporal Logic (LTL). The tool translates LTL formulae automatically into automata representations, which can be used in an efficient on-th-fly verifications procedure. This DIMACS volume presents the papers contributed to the second international workshop that was held on the SPIN verification system at Rutgers University in August 1996. The work covers theoretical and foundational studies of formal verifications, empirical studies of the effectiveness of different types of algorithms, significant practical applications of the SPIN verifier, and discussions of extensions and revisions of the basic code. This text will be of interest to those working in applications.
