You?re already a smart person, you don?t need a 1000+ page book to get you started on the web?s fastest growing programming platform. Instead,ÿLearn Python in One Hourÿdelivers on the promise of code literacy while saving your most precious commodity ? time itself. Volkman?s innovative programming-by-example approach means you focus on usage, not mindless detail. Based on the author?s sold-out live seminars, you?ll see Python?s flexible coding technique in action as we refactor from script to procedural to object-oriented during actual problem solving. In a twelve-lesson progression, you?ll be exposed to this and more: Basic file input and output operations, incuding exceptions Using functions to compute and returnÿ multiple values Basic elements of a class definition and how to call methods Lists, dictionaries, sets, and other collections Iteration through collections, files, sorted sets Searching strings with regular expressions (regex) Client and server programs forÿREST methods Using threadsÿin Python for multiple tasks CGI-BIN programmingÿfor simple HTML Forms processing Six most common Python pitfalls Take the One Hour challenge and see if you too can pick up 90% of syntax and semantics in less time than you probably spend commuting each day. About the AuthorÿVictor R. Volkman graduatedÿcum laudeÿfrom Michigan Technological University with a BS in Computer Science in 1986.

Ada 95 is the first standardized object-oriented language, making it an ideal language to teach programming with. Assuming no previous knowledge of programming techniques, this book gives many examples and exercises as well as the syntax and different language rules. Ada 95 From the Beginning presents the concepts of programming in a logical, easy-to-understand sequence and discusses all the important features of Ada 95, including the late changes that occurred to the standard, and a full chapter on object-oriented features of the language. This book has a dual purpose: to illustrate the fundamental principles of good programming and to provide an accessible introduction to Ada 95. Although intended for beginners, the book covers all of the language, making it a useful reference. The third edition brings the whole book fully in-line with the Ada 95 standard, now an international ISO standard. 0201403765B04062001

Witty Italian art-history crime series featuring English dealer Jonathan Argyll, from the author of the best-selling literary masterpiece, 'An Instance of the Fingerpost'. Membership of the prestigious Titian Committee is normally considered a high honour. Normally, that is, until two of its members end up dead and someone seems to be taking the idea of backstabbing a little too far. Flavia de Stefano of Rome's Art Theft Squad is sent to find out why. She calls upon the help of dealer Jonathan Argyll, in Venice to buy a picture from the Marchesa di Mulino. But the sudden theft of the Marchesa's collection sets Flavia and Jonathan on a tortuous trail to uncover the truth. A further death threatens the very survival of the Committee itself, as well as offering the tantalizing possibility of an undiscovered Titian - a mysterious composition that may have been suppressed for 'moral' reasons....
