Angular 5: From Theory To Practice: Build the web applications of tomorrow using the new Angular web framework from Google.

*Updated to Angular v5 released on November 2017*

After reading this book, you are going to be able to:-

- Understand the latest features of ES6 JavaScript and TypeScript.

- Build an Angular 2 application from scratch using TypeScript and the Angular command line interface.

- Write code using the paradigm of reactive programming with RxJS and Observables.

- Know how to Unit Test Angular using Jasmine, Karma and the Angular Test Bed

The first chapter in the course is a quickstart where you dive straight into writing your first Angular application. We use the web editor plunker so you can get started writing code ASAP.

In this quickstart you'll get a 50,000 foot view of the major features of Angular.

Then chapter by chapter we go much deeper into each of these features. I'll cover the theory for that feature, using plunker as much as possible so you can try out the code yourself in a browser. Then you'll practice what you've learnt with either an online quiz or a set of flash cards.

You are going to learn all about:-

- Typescript & ES6 Javascript.

- Components & Binding

- Directives

- Dependancy Injection & Services

- Angular Modules & Bootstrapping your Angular application.

- SPAs & Routing

- Angular CLI

- Forms

- Reactive Programming with RXJs

- HTTP

- Unit Testing

The ideal student is an existing web developer, with some JavaScript knowledge that wants to add Angular to their skill set. Or perhaps you are an existing Angular 1 developer who wants to level up to Angular 2+.

You do need to be comfortable with at least the ES5 version of JavaScript. We'll be using a UI framework called twitter bootstrap throughout the course but you still must know HTML and some CSS.

Re-engineering the Uptake of ICT in Schools

This book reports on a novel and comprehensive approach to the uptake of ICT in Schools. It focuses on key questions, pedagogically sound ways of introducing ICT, new technical artifacts supporting the approach, the evaluation in a large-scale validator, and future work. While many innovations in Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) have emerged over the last two decades, the uptake of these innovations has not always been very successful, particularly in schools. The transition from proof of concept to integration into learning activities has been recognized as a bottleneck for quite some time. This major problem, which is affecting many TEL stakeholders, is the focus of this book which focuses on developing a more effective and efficient approach based on more than 2500 pilots in European classrooms. Teachers, head teachers, and policy makers may benefit from reading how novel learning scenarios can be elaborated, adapted to a local context, and implemented in the classroom; how new technologies can support this process for teachers and their national/regional communities; how teachers and other stakeholders can be educated in such a re-engineering process; how the approach can be scaled up through MOOCs, ambassador schemes, and train-the-trainer programs; how future classroom labs can inspire teachers, head teachers, and policy makers; how teachers and, above all, learners can become more engaged in learning through the adoption of the iTEC approach. Readers with a more technical focus may also be interested in the discussion of recommender systems, the flexible provision of resources and services, the deployment of the cloud in schools, and systems for composing technological support for lesson plans.

Antifragile Systems and Teams

How Can DevOps Make You Antifragile?

All complex computer systems eventually break, despite all of the heavy-handed, bureaucratic change-management processes we throw at them. But some systems are clearly more fragile than others, depending on how well they cope with stress. In this O'Reilly report, Dave Zwieback explains how the DevOps methodology can help make your system antifragile.

Systems are fragile when organizations are unprepared to handle changing conditions. As generalists adept at several roles, DevOps practitioners adjust more easily to the fast pace of change. Rather than attempt to constrain volatility, DevOps embraces disorder, randomness, and impermanence to make systems even better.

This concise report covers:

Why Etsy, Netflix, and other antifragile companies constantly introduce volatility to test and upgrade their systemsHow DevOps removes the schism between developers and operations, enlisting developers to deploy as well as buildUsing continual experimentation and minor failures to make critical adjustments--and discover breakthroughsHow an overreliance on measurement and automation can make systems fragileWhy sharing increases trust, collaboration, and tribal knowledgeDownload this free report and learn how the DevOps philosophy of Culture, Automation, Measurement, and Sharing makes use of changing conditions and even embarrassing mistakes to help improve your system--and your organization.Dave Zwieback has been managing large-scale, mission-critical infrastructure and teams for 17 years.

What Is Node?

Node.js. It's the latest in a long line of "Are you cool enough to use me?" programming languages, APIs, and toolkits. In that sense, it lands squarely in the tradition of Rails,and Ajax, and Hadoop, and even to some degree iPhone programming and HTML5.

Dig a little deeper, and you'll hear that Node.js (or, as it's more briefly called by many,simply "Node") is a server-side solution for JavaScript, and in particular, for receiving and responding to HTTP requests. If that doesn't completely boggle your mind, by the time the conversation heats up with discussion of ports, sockets, and threads, you'll tend to glaze over. Is this really JavaScript? In fact, why in the world would anyone want to run JavaScript outside of a browser, let alone the server?

The good news is that you're hearing (and thinking) about the right things. Node really is concerned with network programming and server-side request/response processing.The bad news is that like Rails, Ajax, and Hadoop before it, there's precious little clear information available. There will be, in time -- as there now is for these other "cool"frameworks that have matured -- but why wait for a book or tutorial when you might be able to use Node today, and dramatically improve the maintainability.

How My Blog Got 1 Million Visits In 7 Months: A practical and straightforward guide to increasing traffic to your blog in your spare time - and without having to pay for advertising

Blogging has never been bigger. For some, blogging is a pastime, a hobby, something to fulfil a creative need. But some take blogging one step further.

Many individuals, with no special training, are using their blog/s as a part-time or even a full-time job. You may already have a blog that could do with a few more visitors. Or maybe you're thinking of setting up a blog but are not sure where to start. The question most people ask me is 'How do I get visitors to my blog?' It's like setting up a shop on the High Street and facing the challenge of getting people in the door.

The good news is - I have answers that will see your visitor count lift substantially. All you need is a computer, an internet connection and a brain (your own preferably).

Here's what you don't need: money.

This book answers your blogging questions in a practical and straightforward way. How My Blog Got 1 Million Visits In 7 Months has been designed to show you how to drive people to your blog - and how to keep them coming back, time after time. It's designed for bloggers and for those who have websites that could do with more traffic.

I'm a multi-award winning blogger and publisher and have been for over eight years. When I first started blogging, I got very excited to see that one person kept visiting my site.

As a result, my blog is now a profitable business. I haven't spent a penny on advertising and I spend about 30 minutes a day blogging at most. I've picked up a large-scale book deal as a direct result of my blog.

In this book, I'll show you the basics of setting up your blog; how to write content that people will just want to click on and share with their friends; how to create viral posts that will see your visitor statistics balloon; how to write content for your website that will sell your services or products; how to optimise your posts for search engines and how to make money from your blog.

What is DevOps?

Have we entered the age of NoOps infrastructures? Hardly. Old-style system administrators may be disappearing in the face of automation and cloud computing, but operations have become more significant than ever. As this O'Reilly Radar Report explains, we're moving into a more complex arrangement known as "DevOps."

Mike Loukides, O'Reilly's VP of Content Strategy, provides an incisive look into this new world of operations, where IT specialists are becoming part of the development team. In an environment with thousands of servers, these specialists now write the code that maintains the infrastructure. Even applications that run in the cloud have to be resilient and fault tolerant, need to be monitored, and must adjust to huge swings in load. That was underscored by Amazon's EBS outage last year.

From the discussions at O'Reilly's Velocity Conference, it's evident that many operations specialists are quickly adapting to the DevOps reality. But as a whole, the industry has just scratched the surface. This report tells you why.

DIY: Turn Your Cheap Router 150$ into an 800$ Security Router (Computer Networking)

Considering Buying a New Router just for Added Security and Features? Try Upgrading Your Old Router Before You Buy New One!

What's the difference between a $150 broadband router and an $800 'security' router? The answer, as often as not, is "nothing". Or at least when it comes to the hardware. What makes a router a 'security router' is the software installed on it -- the support for VPNs, content management, VLANs, advanced bandwidth reporting and quality of service, RADIUS authentication support, SNMP management and USB 3G/LTE support.

All those things are implemented in software, and you can have them on your inexpensive router just by updating your firmware. The firmware in question is not stock stuff. Instead, it's open-source firmware that's designed to completely replace that which came built into your router. Installing it will completely change the router interface. Your router management mobile apps will no longer work. The web address you use to manage the router may change. And in a lot of cases, management of the router will become more technical. That's the price you will pay for adding a whole host of new features to your inexpensive router.

The Problem with Native JavaScript APIs

Many features inspired by popular JavaScript libraries are now available as native JavaScript APIs in today's powerful browsers. While that may seem convenient given all of the JavaScript you need to write, relying on these APIs will only make code maintenance more difficult in the long run.

In this report, Nicholas Zakas--consultant and former front-end tech leader at Yahoo!--provides a case study to show how different browsers can develop native APIs for the same specification and still end up with different interpretations. You'll discover how these APIs can tie your code to specific browsers, forcing you to upgrade application logic whenever new browsers and new browser versions are released.

Best Practices for Running Oracle Database on Amazon Web Services (AWS Whitepaper)

January 2018

Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers you the ability to run your Oracle Database in a cloud environment.

Running Oracle Database in the AWS Cloud is very similar to running Oracle Database in your

data center. To a database administrator or developer, there are no differences between the two

environments. However, there are a number of AWS platform considerations relating to security, storage,

compute configurations, management, and monitoring that will help you get the best out of your

Oracle Database implementation on AWS. This whitepaper provides best practices for achieving optimal

performance, availability, and reliability, and lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) while running

Oracle Database on AWS. The target audience for this whitepaper includes database administrators,

enterprise architects, systems administrators, and developers who would like to run their Oracle

Database on AWS.

Leveraging AWS Marketplace Storage Solutions for Microsoft SharePoint (AWS Whitepaper)

January 2018

Designing a cloud storage solution to accommodate traditional enterprise software such as Microsoft SharePoint can be challenging. Microsoft SharePoint is complex and demands a lot of the underlying storage that's used for its many databases and content repositories. To ensure that the selected storage platform can accommodate the availability, connectivity, and performance requirements recommended by Microsoft you need to use third-party storage solutions that build on and extend the functionality and performance of AWS storage services.

An appropriate storage solution for Microsoft SharePoint needs to provide data redundancy, high availability, fault tolerance, strong encryption, standard connectivity protocols, point-in-time data recovery, compression, ease of management, directory integration, and support. The focus of this paper is to walk through the deployment and configuration of SoftNAS Cloud NAS, an AWS Marketplace third-party storage product that provides secure, highly available, redundant, and fault-tolerant storage to the Microsoft SharePoint collaboration suite.

Big Data Now: Current Perspectives from O'Reilly Radar

This collection represents the full spectrum of data-related content we've published on O'Reilly Radar over the last year. Mike Loukides kicked things off in June 2010 with "What is data science?" and from there we've pursued the various threads and themes that naturally emerged. Now, roughly a year later, we can look back over all we've covered and identify a number of core data areas:

Data issues -- The opportunities and ambiguities of the data space are evident in discussions around privacy, the implications of data-centric industries, and the debate about the phrase "data science" itself.

The application of data: products and processes - A "data product" can emerge from virtually any domain, including everything from data startups to established enterprises to media/journalism to education and research.

Data science and data tools -- The tools and technologies that drive data science are of course essential to this space, but the varied techniques being applied are also key to understanding the big data arena.

The business of data - Take a closer look at the actions connected to data -- the finding, organizing, and analyzing that provide organizations of all sizes with the information they need to compete.

Microsoft System Center Building a Virtualized Network Solution

Part of a series of specialized guides on System Center, this book is specifically designed for architects and cloud fabric administrators who want to understand what decisions to make during the design process and the implications of those decisions, what constitutes best practice, and, ultimately, what to do to build out a virtualized network solution that meets today's business requirements while also providing a platform for future growth and expansion. This second edition includes coverage of the Hyper-V Network Virtualization gateway, designing a solution that extends an on-premises virtualized network solution to an external (hosted) environment, details of how to troubleshoot and diagnose some of the key connectivity challenges, and a look at the Cloud Platform System (CPS) and some of the key considerations that went into designing and building the network architecture and solution for that environment.

The Culture of Big Data

Technology does not exist in a vacuum. In the same way that a plant needs water and nourishment to grow, technology needs people and process to thrive and succeed. Culture (i.e., people and process) is integral and critical to the success of any new technology deployment or implementation.

Big data is not just a technology phenomenon. It has a cultural dimension. It's vitally important to remember that most people have not considered the immense difference between a world seen through the lens of a traditional relational database system and a world seen through the lens of a Hadoop Distributed File System.This paper broadly describes the cultural challenges that accompany efforts to create and sustain big data initiatives in an evolving world whose data management processes are rooted firmly in traditional data warehouse architectures.

The DevOps Handbook:: How to Create World-Class Agility, Reliability, and Security in Technology Organizations

Increase profitability, elevate work culture, and exceed productivity goals through DevOps practices.

More than ever, the effective management of technology is critical for business competitiveness. For decades, technology leaders have struggled to balance agility, reliability, and security. The consequences of failure have never been greater-whether it's the healthcare.gov debacle, cardholder data breaches, or missing the boat with Big Data in the cloud.

And yet, high performers using DevOps principles, such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Etsy, and Netflix, are routinely and reliably deploying code into production hundreds, or even thousands, of times per day.

Following in the footsteps of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook shows leaders how to replicate these incredible outcomes, by showing how to integrate Product Management, Development, QA, IT Operations, and Information Security to elevate your company and win in the marketplace.
