Use this book as your one-stop shop for architecting a world-class DevOps environment with Microsoft technologies. .NET DevOps for Azure is a synthesis of practices, tools, and process that, together, can equip a software organization to move fast and deliver the highest quality software. The book begins by discussing the most common challenges faced by developers in DevOps today and offers options and proven solutions on how to implement DevOps for your team. Daily, millions of developers use .NET to build and operate mission-critical software systems for organizations around the world. While the marketplace has scores of information about the technology, it is completely up to you to put together all the blocks in the right way for your environment. This book provides you with a model to build on. The relevant principles are covered first along with how to implement that part of the environment. And while variances in tools, language, or requirements will change the needed implementation, the DevOps model is the architecture for the working environment for your team. You can modify parts of the model to customize it to your enterprise, but the architecture will enable all of your teams and applications to accelerate in performance. What You Will Learn Get your .NET applications into a DevOps environment in Azure Analyze and address the part of your DevOps process that causes delays or bottlenecks Track code using Azure Repos and conduct acceptance tests Apply the rules for segmenting applications into Git repositories Understand the different types of builds and when to use each Know how to think about code validation in your DevOps environment Provision and configure environments; deploy release candidates across the environments in Azure Monitor and support software that has been deployed to a production environment Who This Book Is For .NET Developers who are using or want to use DevOps in Azure but don't know where to begin

Great Big Agile: An OS for Agile Leaders
Big Agile leaders need an empirical, high-trust model that provides guidance for scaling and sustaining agility and capability throughout a modern technology organization. This book presents the Agile Performance Holarchy (APH)-a how-ability model that provides agile leaders and teams with an operating system to build, evaluate, and sustain great agile habits and behaviors. The APH is an organizational operating system based on a set of interdependent, self-organizing circles, or holons, that reflect the empirical, object-oriented nature of agility. As more companies seek the benefits of Agile within and beyond IT, agile leaders need to build and sustain capability while scaling agility-no easy task-and they need to succeed without introducing unnecessary process and overhead. The APH is drawn from lessons learned while observing and assessing hundreds of agile companies and teams. It is not a process or a hierarchy, but a holarchy, a series of performance circles with embedded and interdependent holons that reflect the behaviors of high-performing agile organizations. Great Big Agile provides implementation guidance in the areas of leadership, values, teaming, visioning, governing, building, supporting, and engaging within an all-agile organization. What You'll Learn Model the behaviors of a high-performance agile organization Benefit from lessons learned by other organizations that have succeeded with Big Agile Assess your level of agility with the Agile Performance Holarchy Apply the APH model to your business Understand the APH performance circles, holons, objectives, and actions Obtain certification for your company, organization, or agency Who This Book Is For Professionals leading, or seeking to lead, an agile organization who wish to use an innovative model to raise their organization's agile performance from one level to the next, all the way to mastery

Gain a deep, practical knowledge of HTML and JavaScript that will provide an introduction to programming and enable you to build interactive websites. This completely updated second edition explains HTML, JavaScript and CSS in the context of working examples and contains full-color screen shots of the programs in action. You'll begin at an introductory level, learning the essentials of HTML5 and JavaScript and programming techniques. Each chapter features either a familiar game such as Hangman, Rock-Paper-Scissors, Craps, Memory, and Blackjack, or a simple type of game, such as a quiz, a maze, or animated simulations. You'll develop solid programming skills that will help when learning other programming languages. Each chapter contains tables revealing the structure of the program with comments for each line of code. These examples demonstrate the features introduced with HTML5. You'll see how to use canvas elements for line drawing. You can include your own audio and video clips, directly controlled by your JavaScript code. For example, the reward for correct completion of a quiz can be the playing of an audio clip and a video clip. You'll also learn how to use localStorage to store high scores or game preferences on a user's computer for retrieval next time they play. The Essential Guide to HTML5 explores all of this and more.

Testing and Tuning Market Trading Systems: Algorithms in C++
Build, test, and tune financial, insurance or other market trading systems using C++ algorithms and statistics. You've had an idea and have done some preliminary experiments, and it looks promising. Where do you go from here? Well, this book discusses and dissects this case study approach. Seemingly good backtest performance isn't enough to justify trading real money. You need to perform rigorous statistical tests of the system's validity. Then, if basic tests confirm the quality of your idea, you need to tune your system, not just for best performance, but also for robust behavior in the face of inevitable market changes. Next, you need to quantify its expected future behavior, assessing how bad its real-life performance might actually be, and whether you can live with that. Finally, you need to find its theoretical performance limits so you know if its actual trades conform to this theoretical expectation, enabling you to dump the system if it does not live up to expectations. This book does not contain any sure-fire, guaranteed-riches trading systems. Those are a dime a dozen... But if you have a trading system, this book will provide you with a set of tools that will help you evaluate the potential value of your system, tweak it to improve its profitability, and monitor its on-going performance to detect deterioration before it fails catastrophically. Any serious market trader would do well to employ the methods described in this book.What You Will Learn See how the 'spaghetti-on-the-wall' approach to trading system development can be done legitimately Detect overfitting early in development Estimate the probability that your system's backtest results could have been due to just good luck Regularize a predictive model so it automatically selects an optimal subset of indicator candidates Rapidly find the global optimum for any type of parameterized trading system Assess the ruggedness of your trading system against market changes Enhance the stationarity and information content of your proprietary indicators Nest one layer of walkforward analysis inside another layer to account for selection bias in complex trading systems Compute a lower bound on your system's mean future performance Bound expected periodic returns to detect on-going system deterioration before it becomes severe Estimate the probability of catastrophic drawdown Who This Book Is For Experienced C++ programmers, developers, and software engineers. Prior experience with rigorous statistical procedures to evaluate and maximize the quality of systems is recommended as well.
