The primacy of words over images has deep roots in Western culture. But what if the two are inextricably linked in meaning-making? In this experiment in visual thinking, drawn in comics, Nick Sousanis defies conventional discourse to offer readers a stunning work of graphic art and a serious inquiry into the ways humans construct knowledge.

(Note: a new file with improved images was uploaded 02/19/15) Effective LabVIEW Programming by Thomas Bress is suitable for all beginning and intermediate LabVIEW programmers. It follows a “teach by showing, learn by doing” approach. It demonstrates what good LabVIEW programs look like by exploring a small set of core LabVIEW functions and common design patterns based on a project drawn from the Certified LabVIEW Developer exam. These patterns build on each other. They provide a firm starting point for most beginning and intermediate projects. Overall, the presentation emphasizes how to use the dataflow paradigm of LabVIEW to create effective programs that are readable, scalable and maintainable. The concepts presented in this book are reinforced by eleven problem sets with full solutions. This book will improve your fluency in LabVIEW and, in the process, will teach you how to “think” in LabVIEW.

75003-4 Building advanced Web-based enterprise applications: a comprehensive, systematic approach. Three technologies are converging to dramatically change the nature of application development: client/server, object-orientation, and the Internet. This book is a complete guide to successfully integrating all of these technologies in your new enterprise applications. Expert consultant and project manager Dr. Amjad Umar shows how to establish data architectures, application architectures, and frameworks that enable successful Web-based software development. He presents a detailed methodology for using middleware to engineer new applications--or reengineer existing ones. He also offers a systematic approach to cope with legacy systems--including legacy data access, data warehousing and application migration/transition strategies. For each major issue confronting developers, Umar considers the state of today's marketplace, as well as trends that will powerfully impact development projects in the near future. The book contains extensive guidelines, implementation examples and case studies, using a wide range of technologies, including: CORBA. ActiveX. PowerBuilder. Encina. CGI and other Web gateways The book includes short tutorials on object-oriented concepts, distributed objects, the World Wide Web, and client/server middleware. Each chapter is written as a self-contained tutorial--making the book a valuable resource not only for IT professionals, but also for trainers, teachers, and advanced students.
