Written by the world’s foremost PowerPivot blogger and practitioner, the book’s concepts and approach are introduced in a simple, step-by-step manner tailored to the learning style of Excel users everywhere. The techniques presented allow users to produce, in hours or even minutes, results that formerly would have taken entire teams weeks or months to produce and include lessons on the difference between calculated columns and measures, how formulas can be reused across reports of completely different shapes, how to merge disjointed sets of data into unified reports, how to make certain columns in a pivot behave as if the pivot were filtered while other columns do not, and how to create time-intelligent calculations in pivot tables such as “Year over Year” and “Moving Averages” whether they use a standard, fiscal, or a complete custom calendar. The “pattern-like” techniques and best practices contained in this book have been developed and refined over two years of onsite training with Excel users around the world, and the key lessons from those seminars costing thousands of dollars per day are now available to within the pages of this easy-to-follow guide.
Spring Microservices in Action
John Carnell - 2017
Spring Boot and Spring Cloud offer Java developers an easy migration path from traditional monolithic Spring applications to microservice-based applications that can be deployed to multiple cloud platforms. The Spring Boot and Spring Cloud frameworks let you quickly build microservices that are ready to be deployed to a private corporate cloud or a public cloud like Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Pivotal’s CloudFoundry.Spring Microservices in Action teaches you how to use the Spring Boot and Spring Cloud frameworks to build and deploy microservice-based cloud applications. You'll begin with an introduction to the microservice pattern and how to build microservices with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. Then you'll get hands-on and discover how to configure Spring Boot. Using lots of real-world examples, you'll learn topics like service discovery with Spring Cloud, Netflix Eureka, and Ribbon. Next, you'll find out how to handle potential problems using client-side resiliency patterns with Spring and Netflix Hystrix. This book also covers implementing a service gateway with Spring Cloud and Zuul and event processing in the cloud with Spring Cloud Stream. Finally, you'll learn to deploy and push your application to cloud services, including AWS and CloudFoundry. By the end of this book, you'll not only be able to build your own microservice-based applications, but how operationalize and scale your microservices so they can deployed to a private or public cloud.
The Art of Monitoring
James Turnbull - 2016
We start small and then build on what you learn to scale out to multi-site, multi-tier applications. The book is written for both developers and sysadmins. We focus on building monitored and measurable applications. We also use tools that are designed to handle the challenges of managing Cloud, containerised and distributed applications and infrastructure.In the book we'll deliver:* An introduction to monitoring, metrics and measurement.* A scalable framework for monitoring hosts (including Docker and containers), services and applications built on top of the Riemann event stream processor. * Graphing and metric storage using Graphite and Grafana.* Logging with Logstash.* A framework for high quality and useful notifications* Techniques for developing and building monitorable applications* A capstone that puts all the pieces together to monitor a multi-tier application.

Python Testing with Pytest: Simple, Rapid, Effective, and Scalable
Brian Okken - 2017
The pytest testing framework helps you write tests quickly and keep them readable and maintainable - with no boilerplate code. Using a robust yet simple fixture model, it's just as easy to write small tests with pytest as it is to scale up to complex functional testing for applications, packages, and libraries. This book shows you how.For Python-based projects, pytest is the undeniable choice to test your code if you're looking for a full-featured, API-independent, flexible, and extensible testing framework. With a full-bodied fixture model that is unmatched in any other tool, the pytest framework gives you powerful features such as assert rewriting and plug-in capability - with no boilerplate code.With simple step-by-step instructions and sample code, this book gets you up to speed quickly on this easy-to-learn and robust tool. Write short, maintainable tests that elegantly express what you're testing. Add powerful testing features and still speed up test times by distributing tests across multiple processors and running tests in parallel. Use the built-in assert statements to reduce false test failures by separating setup and test failures. Test error conditions and corner cases with expected exception testing, and use one test to run many test cases with parameterized testing. Extend pytest with plugins, connect it to continuous integration systems, and use it in tandem with tox, mock, coverage, unittest, and doctest.Write simple, maintainable tests that elegantly express what you're testing and why.What You Need: The examples in this book are written using Python 3.6 and pytest 3.0. However, pytest 3.0 supports Python 2.6, 2.7, and Python 3.3-3.6.
The Scheme Programming Language
R. Kent Dybvig - 1987
Many exercises are presented to help reinforce the lessons learned, and answers to the exercises are given in a new appendix.Most of the remaining chapters are dedicated to the reference material, which describes in detail the standard features of Scheme included in the Revised$^5$ Report on Scheme and the ANSI/IEEE standard for Scheme.Numerous examples are presented throughout the introductory and reference portions of the text, and a unique set of extended example programs and applications, with additional exercises, are presented in the final chapter. Reinforcing the book's utility as a reference text are appendices that present the formal syntax of Scheme, a summary of standard forms and procedures, and a bibliography of Scheme resources.The Scheme Programming Language stands alone as an introduction to and essential reference for Scheme programmers. it is also useful as a supplementary text for any course that uses Scheme.The Scheme Programming Language is illustrated by artist Jean-Pierre Hébert, who writes Scheme programs to extend his ability to create sophisticated works of digital art.R. Kent Dybvig is Professor of Computer Science at Indiana University and principal developer of Chez Scheme.
