              With the rapid development of the Internet of Things, a gap has emerged in skills versus knowledge in an industry typically segmented into hardware versus software. Practitioners are now expected to possess capabilities across the spectrum of hardware and software skills to creat...e these smart devices. This book explores these skill sets in an instructive way, beginning at the foundations of what makes smart technology smart, addressing the basics of hardware and hardware design, software, user experiences, and culminating in the considerations and means of building a fully formed smart device, capable of being used in a commercial capacity, versus a DIY project. Practical Smart Device Design and Construction includes a set of starter projects designed to encourage the novice to build and learn from doing. Each project also includes a summary guiding you where to go next, and how to tie the practical, hands-on experience together with what they have learned to take the next step on their own. What You'll Learn Practical smart device design and construction considerations such as size, power consumption, wiring needs, analog vs digital, and sensor types and uses Methods and tools for creating their own designs such as circuit board designs; and wiring and prototyping tools Hands-on guidance through their own prototype projects and building it alongside the projects in this book Software considerations for speed versus ease, security, and basics of programming and data analytics for smart devices Who This Book Is For Those with some technical skills, or at least a familiarity with technical topics, who are looking for the means and skills to start experimenting with combined hardware and software projects in order to gain familiarity and comfort with the smart device space.

              Build interactive, database-driven websites with PHP 7, MySQL 8, and MariaDB. The focus of this book is on getting you up and running as quickly as possible with real-world applications. In the first two chapters, you will set up your development and testing environment, and then... build your first PHP and MariaDB or MySQL database-driven website. You will then increase its sophistication, security, and functionality throughout the course of the book. The PHP required is taught in context within each project so you can quickly learn how PHP integrates with MariaDB and MySQL to create powerful database-driven websites. Each project is fully illustrated, so you will see clearly what you are building as you create your own database-driven website. You will build a form for registering users, and then build an interface so that an administrator can view and administer the user database. You will create a message board for users and a method for emailing them. You will also learn the best practices for ensuring that your website databases are secure. Later chapters describe how to create a product catalog, and a simple e-commerce site. You will also discover how to migrate a database to a remote host. The final chapter will demonstrate the advantages of migrating to Oracle's MySQL 8. You will be shown step by step migration directions along with a demonstration of the tools available in SQL Workbench. Because you are building the interactive pages yourself, you will know exactly how MySQL, MariaDB, and PHP all work together, and you will be able to add database interactivity to your own websites with ease.

              Learn to effectively and swiftly use DPC++. Paralell programming is a wide and complex topic, and this open access book focuses on a key aspect of it, namely language support for data parallel algorithm coding. This is distinct from, and complementary to, the highly portable faci...lities of TBB and today's C++ standard. Language support for data parallelism is critical because it is a technique that benefits from both developer input and compiler optimization technologies. Success with prior efforts including OpenMP, and OpenCL, have given us substantial real-world experience on which to build. DPC++ is not only highly useful today, but it is also a vision for the future of C++. In this first-to-market book on DPC++, you'll learn the key to programming for Intel's new One API initiative. This book enables programmers to be at the forefront in this exciting, and important new development that promises to push computing to a new level. What You'll Learn: Effective heterogenous programming (CPU, GPU, FPGA, ASIC, etc.) Parallel programming in C++, specifically for data parallel problems Programming for Intel's One API The future of parallel programming support in C++ Who This Book Is For:Computer programmers interested in parallel programming and C++ programming.
