A satirical novel that pokes fun at the world of politics. A humorous blend of physics, psychology (including the paranormal), religion, and current knowledge of economics. Light humor and witty sarcasm. The protagonist’ s conversations with God is worth the price of the book. Outrageous but believable!

Bram Stoker Award (R) Nominated Author Need to hide something from the fae? Got a tricky transdimensional delivery to make? Need a big ball of magic that can destroy the world? Call Black Box Inc. The world as we know it is gone. Since the "extra-dimensional happening," every creature, monster, and fairy tale goblin has turned Asheville, North Carolina, into their personal playground. An uneasy truce exists between the races, but Chase Lawter's unique ability puts him squarely in the crosshairs of treachery, feuds, and monsters looking to make a buck on black market goods. Chase is the only known being who can pull material from between dimensions and shape it into whatever he likes--like boxes. Like boxes in which folks hide smoking guns and severed heads. Only Chase can hide the boxes, and only Chase can recover them from the Dim. All for a tidy sum, of course. His crack team--a yeti, a zombie, and a fae-trained assassin--have his back. What could possibly go wrong?

Ein Lehrbuch zur komponentenorientierten Softwarekonstruktion mit Component Pascal


Author: Karlheinz Hug

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3322929329

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 446

View: 2418

Dieses Lehrbuch will den Leser nicht nur in das Programmieren im Kleinen, in Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen, sondern auch in objekt- und komponentenorientierte Softwaretechniken einführen, um ihn auf das systematische Konstruieren professioneller Software vorzubereiten. Software erscheint als Architektur - als strukturierte Ansammlung von Komponenten, die über definierte Schnittstellen interagieren. Der Autor entwickelt die Lehrinhalte anhand aufeinander aufbauender Beispielkomponenten, wobei er Software-Qualitätsmerkmale wie Wartbarkeit und Wiederverwendbarkeit behandelt. Der Leser lernt nach dem Ansatz des schrittweisen Öffnens von Black Boxes zunächst, Komponenten zu benutzen, bevor er sie implementiert und erweitert. Die Methode des Spezifizierens und Programmierens durch Vertrag setzt der Autor konsequent ein, um zu zeigen, wie man zuverlässige, korrekte Software entwickeln kann. Neben grafischen Notationen dient die objekt- und komponentenorientierte Programmiersprache Component Pascal dazu, die softwaretechnischen Konzepte zu vermitteln. Das Buch bietet Grundlagen, ohne Spezialkenntnisse vorauszusetzen; es richtet sich vor allem an Einsteiger in die Informatik.

Analysieren statt vertuschen Menschen, die gezielt aus Fehlern lernen, anstatt sie zu vertuschen oder anderen in die Schuhe zu schieben, nennt Matthew Syed Black-Box-Denker. Dazu sind jedoch nur wenige in der Lage. Auch in vielen Unternehmen geht man mit Misserfolgen nicht offen und ohne Schuldzuweisungen um. Syed bietet aufschlussreiche Analysen für dieses Verhalten. Zu welchen Erfolgen hingegen ein offensiver Umgang mit Fehlern führen kann, zeigt Syed anhand konkreter Beispiele, aus der Welt des Sports oder von erfolgreichen Unternehmen wie Google, Pixar oder Dropbox.
