3.0 von 5 Sternen get knowledge regarding various Open Source Licenses, 26. Juli 2011
Recently I was faced a problem to determine which code can be used within the software when different licenses are mixed. Which was not a pleasant task. Studying legal related topics usually doesn't count into 'ten most interesting' things software engineers like to do.
However, sometimes you have to face the problem. Van Lindberg deconstructs the legal related issue in very structured way. First of all he defines all the legal related terms and provides examples for each case. After the background is settled he goes into details ' how to deal with particular, license related issues when you start to develop something. What I have found most interesting was explanation of GPL license ' which is widely used and very often miss understood. Another issue that is raised within the book, and worth thinking about, is your employment ' does it inflict your thinking outside company? Are you aware of that it can?

What I can see at a first glance are the differences between USA law and European one. This makes it difficult to suggest this book as source of legal knowledge for anyone who lives outside USA. On the other hand, Van describes most common licenses that are available on the global 'market' ' which can help you some way. What I have missed, however was detailed description of BSD license. I think that BSD can be treated as competitor for GPL ' some way, and it would be nice to see its detailed explanation ' unless it is so simple that it doesn't require it. Would I recommend this book? It depends. If you live in USA I think it is good source of knowledge served in very clear way. If you live outside USA ' I think you will only benefit from few chapters like GPL, Reverse Engineering, Choosing a license ones. If you need explanation of basing legal terms ' I think you can go for it ' regardless of your living place.

4.0 von 5 Sternen get knowledge regarding Python, 26. Juli 2011
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Python (Kindle Edition)
Programming Python is one of these book you can kill with when dropped from appropriate height. I am not Python expert, rather casual Python programer, I focus rather on Java-Python bindings and I was looking for a book that I can use as a reference point. Python Programming covers quite a loot of Python related aspects of the language, is well structured, and covers most recent Python release (version 3).

Programing Python is not a typical programming book ' famous 'Hello world' occurs for the first time at page 129. It's more Python
reference book than programming book. Mark covers many, typical, issues that most programers will face during programming. What's good about this book are simple, straight and pragmatic examples ' just the essence. However, sweet things have sometimes bitter taste when not served well. What I don't like within the book are huge code listings. I fell like putting 20 pages of code straight into text is simply waste of space. I prefer to use external resources (CD, source codes from ftp) instead of reading the code within the book (it's like going back to 90's). What I miss in the book is Python/Java integration. I use Python within Java and would like to read more regarding this topic the way Python/C integration is described. Would I recommend this book? If you are looking for Python reference ' yes, if you are looking for Java-Python compendium ' no.

4.0 von 5 Sternen get something back from Facebook, 26. Juli 2011
Facebook like portals are based on community ' if there were no people willing to devote their time for it, Facebook wouldn't exist. Question rises ' am I able to get something back from Facebook? Vander Veer claims that it's possible. By describing various features of Facebook explains how to utilize them in order to achieve certain goals. I would argue whether title of the book should state 'Doing Business' thou. In my opinion this is just a little trick to get peoples' attention.

I am not Facebook fan at all, that's why I am not aware of it's features. I was looking for a book that could shade some light on this topic and was condense at the same time. In this term 'Doing Business '' is just fine. After reading section two you can get the feeling of what Facebook is about. If you need brief overlook of most of Facebook features ' that's fine. When it comes doing business (section one), I don't fully agree with author. I don't think that creating Facebook resume is a good idea. I think standing out of the crowd would be better idea. Facebook page with links to your personal web site ' fine. Moving your resume into Facebook ' nope, thanks. In general, I have found what I was looking for. Would I recommend this book? If you don't know Facebook yet, I think the price of this book makes it a good deal to get it and see what's behind one of the most recognized logos.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Core Data by example, 8. Juni 2011
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Core Data iOS Essentials (Taschenbuch)
Whenever you start to develop an application it is just a matter of time when you decide that you need to save some data. No matter what will it be ' settings for the application, list of the groceries in your TODO application, score achieved by the player during the game or some images. In that case, Code Data comes in handy. Core Data provides developer with an abstraction layer between GUI and datastore (whether it will be a flat file or SQLite database).

Bintu Harwani tries to make this topic easier for the readers by providing the with the building process of the application that utilizes Core Data. At first, he goes over general, Core Data related, topics. He also presents target application that will be developed. Then, Objective-C content required for the application is explained ' that is, protocols and Table View. After the indispensable introduction author jumps right into Core Data development.

I, personally, prefer Cookbook like books, where certain topics are discussed without being bound to a particular topic too much. In this book different approach is presented. You are presented development process. In order to get as much as possible out of it you have to follow it from the start to the end. I think this approach is quite good for beginners where examples are more valuable than pure theory. In this terms I think that book might be useful for the beginners indeed. However, there are few drawbacks.

First of all, book addresses iOS 3.0 while there is iOS 4.0 already heavily used and iOS 5.0 is already announced and ready for download for registered Apple iOS Developers. Basing on the XCode screen shoots I guess that XCode 3 was used instead of XCode 4. This may lead sometimes into confusion. You will see something different within book comparing to what you see on the screen. Another drawback is the way book is arranged. At least it is an issue for me. Within second chapter there is a section that describes applications behavior. This description goes over all the functionalities which is, for me, too detailed. I'd rather see just a brief description of application within section 'Understanding Core Data' while at the same time I'd prefer to see details within chapters devoted to particular part of the application.

I think that book can help readers to go through the basics of Core Data. I wouldn't recommend it for more advanced users that are looking for more sophisticated solutions within Core Data related area. But I think this is what title says. This book is about essentials, and in that case it is just fine.


Cocoa and Objective-C Cookbook
Cocoa and Objective-C Cookbook

Preis: EUR 33,16

3.0 von 5 Sternen recipes for Mac OS Developers, 6. Juni 2011
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cocoa and Objective-C Cookbook (Taschenbuch)
Cocoa and Objective C Cookbook is a typical cookbook for programmers. It contains 78 recipes related to various aspects of Mac OS X development. You will find here snippets of code that target User Interface, events handling (gestures), file management, web content analysis, database related topics as well as topics related to application architecture and Objective-C language itself.

In general, book is well organized. Each chapter is divided into few sections: Getting ready, How to do it, How it works, There is more and See also. Each section discuses different aspects of the issue. In fact, section names are fully self explaining. There are few topics that will surely make your life easier, like Singleton pattern related recipe, sections devoted to HTTP request, or ones that are devoted to database based development. These provide you with fast start by providing readers with ready to use snippets. If I can value the topics covered within the book, I definitely can't understand the requirements. Book is based on XCode 2.4 when version 4 is available on the market for longer than half of the year. This makes some parts of the book completely in comprehensive in terms of the topics covered as well as the IDE itself. You are no longer required to use external XIB editor, there are completely different icons within XCode, some options are located in different places. This is really a drawback. Another issue is the way chapters are organized. At some point it looks like author jumps from topic to topic without any specific schema. For example, chapters devoted to Objective-C and Application's Architecture are located in the middle of the book. It looks little bit strange to me.

Would I recommend this book? It depends. There are few topics that are hard to find in other Cocoa related books. It has well prepared examples that you can download directly from the Packt's page. If you are looking for most recent book on the market, devoted to most recent XCode ' this book is not for you. If you don't pay that much attention to details, you will probably find few recipes that will make your life easier.
