Beginning Azure IoT Edge Computing: Extending the Cloud to the Intelligent Edge
Use a step-by-step process to create and deploy your first Azure IoT Edge solution. Modern day developers and architects in today's cloud-focused world must understand when it makes sense to leverage the cloud. Computing on the edge is a new paradigm for most people. The Azure IoT Edge platform uses many existing technologies that may be familiar to developers, but understanding how to leverage those technologies in an edge computing scenario can be challenging. Beginning Azure IoT Edge Computing demystifies computing on the edge and explains, through concrete examples and exercises, how and when to leverage the power of intelligent edge computing. It introduces the possibilities of intelligent edge computing using the Azure IoT Edge platform, and guides you through hands-on exercises to make edge computing approachable, understandable, and highly useful. Through user-friendlydiscussion you will not only understand how to build edge solutions, but also when to build them. By explaining some common solution patterns, the decision on when to use the cloud and when to avoid the cloud will become much clearer. What You'll Learn Create and deploy Azure IoT Edge solutions Recognize when to leverage the intelligent edge pattern and when to avoid it Leverage the available developer tooling to develop and debug IoT Edge solutions Know which off-the-shelf edge computing modules are available Become familiar with some of the lesser-known device protocols used in conjunction with edge computing Understand how to securely deploy and bootstrap an IoT Edge device Explore related topics such as containers and secure device provisioning Who This Book Is For Developers or architects who want to understand edge computing and when and where to use it.

This can be extremely challenging if you're creating multiple pipelines per application or tech stack. What if your feature teams could utilize a generic pipeline that could build, test, and deploy any application, regardless of tech stack? What if that pipeline was also cloud and platform agnostic? Too good to be true? Well think again! Generic Pipelines Using Docker explores the principles and implementations that allow you to do just that. You will learn from real-world examples and reusable code. After reading this book you will have the knowledge to build generic pipelines that any team can use. What You'll Learn Explore the pros and cons of generic pipeline methodology Combine shell scripts and Docker to build a generic pipeline Implement a pipeline across CI/CD platforms Build a pipeline that lends itself well to both centralized and federated DevOps teams Construct a modular pipeline with components that can be added, removed, or replaced as needed Who This Book Is For Professionals who use DevOps or are part of a DevOps team, and are seeking ways to streamline their pipelines and drive more deployments while using less code

Modern Algorithms for Image Processing: Computer Imagery by Example Using C#
Utilize modern methods for digital image processing and take advantage of the many time-saving templates provided for all of the projects in this book. Modern Algorithms for Image Processing approaches the topic of image processing through teaching by example. Throughout the book, you will create projects that resolve typical problems that you might encounter in the world of digital image processing. Some projects teach you methods for addressing the quality of images, such as reducing random errors or noise and suppressing pulse noise (salt and pepper), a method valuable for improving the quality of historical images. Other methods detail how to correct inhomogeneous illumination, not by means of subtracting the mean illumination, but through division, a far more efficient method. Additional projects cover contrasting, and a process for edge detection, more efficient than Canny's, for detecting edges in color images directly, without converting them into black and white images. What You'll Learn Apply innovative methods for suppressing pulse noise, enhancing contrast, and edge detection Know the pros and cons of enlisting a particular method Use new approaches for image compression and recognizing circles in photos Utilize a valuable method for straightening photos of paintings taken at an oblique angle, a critical concept to understand when using flash at a right angle Understand the problem statement of polygonal approximation of boundaries or edges and its solution Use a new method for detecting bicycles in traffic Access complete source code examples in C# for all of the projects Who This Book Is For C# developers who work with digital image processing or are interested in informatics. The reader should have programming experience and access to an integrated development environment (IDE), ideally .NET. This book does not prove or disprove theorems, but suggests methods for learning valuable concepts that will enable you to customize your own image processing projects.
