Master modern web and network data modeling: both theory and applications. In Web and Network Data Science, a top faculty member of Northwestern University’s prestigious analytics program presents the first fully-integrated treatment of both the business and academic elements of web and network modeling for predictive analytics. Some books in this field focus either entirely on business issues (e.g., Google Analytics and SEO); others are strictly academic (covering topics such as sociology, complexity theory, ecology, applied physics, and economics). This text gives today's managers and students what they really need: integrated coverage of concepts, principles, and theory in the context of real-world applications. Building on his pioneering Web Analytics course at Northwestern University, Thomas W. Miller covers usability testing, Web site performance, usage analysis, social media platforms, search engine optimization (SEO), and many other topics. He balances this practical coverage with accessible and up-to-date introductions to both social network analysis and network science, demonstrating how these disciplines can be used to solve real business problems.
Become an expert Vue developer by understanding design patterns and the component architecture of Vue.js to write clean and maintainable code Key Features Craft highly modular applications by exploring design patterns and the component architecture of Vue.js Enforce a Flux-like application architecture in your Vue.js applications with Vuex Easy-to-follow examples that can be used to create reusable code and extensible designs Book Description Vue.js 2 Design Patterns and Best Practices starts by comparing Vue.js with other frameworks and setting up the development environment for your application, and gradually moves on to writing and styling clean, maintainable, and reusable Vue.js components that can be used across your application. Further on, you'll look at common UI patterns, Vue form submission, and various modifiers such as lazy binding, number typecasting, and string trimming to create better UIs. You will also explore best practices for integrating HTTP into Vue.js applications to create an application with dynamic data. Routing is a vitally important part of any SPA, so you will focus on the vue-router and explore routing a user between multiple pages. Next, you'll also explore state management with Vuex, write testable code for your application, and create performant, server-side rendered applications with Nuxt. Toward the end, we'll look at common antipatterns to avoid, saving you from a lot of trial and error and development headaches. By the end of this book, you'll be on your way to becoming an expert Vue developer who can leverage design patterns to efficiently architect the design of your application and write clean and maintainable code. What you will learn Understand the theory and patterns of Vue.js Build scalable and modular Vue.js applications Take advantage of Vuex for reactive state management Create single page applications with vue-router Use Nuxt for FAST server-side rendered Vue applications Convert your application to a Progressive Web App (PWA) and add ServiceWorkers and offline support Build your app with Vue.js by following best practices and explore the common anti-patterns to avoid Who this book is for This book is for Vue developers who are familiar with framework design principles and utilize commonly found design patterns in developing web applications.
Explore the world of .NET design patterns and bring the benefits that the right patterns can offer to your toolkit today About This Book Dive into the powerful fundamentals of .NET framework for software development The code is explained piece by piece and the application of the pattern is also showcased. This fast-paced guide shows you how to implement the patterns into your existing applications Who This Book Is For This book is for those with familiarity with .NET development who would like to take their skills to the next level and be in the driver's seat when it comes to modern development techniques. Basic object-oriented C# programming experience and an elementary familiarity with the .NET framework library is required. What You Will Learn Put patterns and pattern catalogs into the right perspective Apply patterns for software development under C#/.NET Use GoF and other patterns in real-life development scenarios Be able to enrich your design vocabulary and well articulate your design thoughts Leverage object/functional programming by mixing OOP and FP Understand the reactive programming model using Rx and RxJs Writing compositional code using C# LINQ constructs Be able to implement concurrent/parallel programming techniques using idioms under .NET Avoiding pitfalls when creating compositional, readable, and maintainable code using imperative, functional, and reactive code. In Detail Knowing about design patterns enables developers to improve their code base, promoting code reuse and making their design more robust. This book focuses on the practical aspects of programming in .NET. You will learn about some of the relevant design patterns (and their application) that are most widely used. We start with classic object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques, evaluate parallel programming and concurrency models, enhance implementations by mixing OOP and functional programming, and finally to the reactive programming model where functional programming and OOP are used in synergy to write better code. Throughout this book, we'll show you how to deal with architecture/design techniques, GoF patterns, relevant patterns from other catalogs, functional programming, and reactive programming techniques. After reading this book, you will be able to convincingly leverage these design patterns (factory pattern, builder pattern, prototype pattern, adapter pattern, facade pattern, decorator pattern, observer pattern and so on) for your programs. You will also be able to write fluid functional code in .NET that would leverage concurrency and parallelism! Style and approach This tutorial-based book takes a step-by-step approach. It covers the major patterns and explains them in a detailed manned along with code examples.
