Beginning ASP.NET MVC 4
Author: Jose Rolando Guay Paz
By now you’ll have heard of ASP.NET MVC. This exciting new approach to developing ASP.NET web applications has taken the development world by storm over the last few years. Now a mature technology suitable for mainstream use, its adoption has exploded in recent times. Until recently, ASP.NET MVC was regarded as an advanced technology only suitable for experienced developers with a strong knowledge of classic ASP.NET and C# coding behind them. This book overturns that prejudice and shows that the beautiful simplicity of ASP.NET MVC is just as suitable for novice developers venturing into real-world application design for the first time. With the aid of a fully worked demo application this book explains and demonstrates for you the three pillars of MVC in action. You’ll see howthe Model, View and Controller patterns work together in a compliementary manner to provide MVC’s powerful results. There’s never been a better time to learn how to use ASP.NETMVC 4. The technology will speed your development times, reduce the verbosity of your code and simplify your application designs all at once. Take the first step towards ASP.NET MVC mastery with Beginning ASP.NET MVC 4.

About "Competitive Mathematics for Gifted Students" This series provides practice materials and short theory reminders for students who aim to excel at problem solving. Material is introduced in a structured manner: each new concept is followed by a problem set that explores the content in detail. Each book ends with a problem set that reviews both concepts presented in the current volume and related topics from previous volumes. The series forms a learning continuum that explores strategies specific to competitive mathematics in depth and breadth. Full solutions explain both reasoning and execution. Often, several solutions are contrasted. The problem selection emphasizes comprehension, critical thinking, observation, and avoiding repetitive and mechanical procedures. Ready to participate in a math competition such as AMC-8, AMC-10, Math Kangaroo in USA, Math Leagues, USAMTS, or AIME? This series will open the doors to consistent performance. About Level 3 This level of the series is designed for students who can solve linear equations, are fluent with fractions, and can factor into primes. The problem sets are designed to strengthen specific areas where we know students have difficulty on AMC-8 and AMC-10. The level 2 books are a strong preparation for AMC-8 and a partial preparation for AMC-10 and AIME. Level 2 consists of: Word Problems (volume 9), Arithmetic and Number Theory (volume 10), Operations and Algebra (volume 11), Geometry (volume 12), and Combinatorics (volume 13). On the contest list for this level: MATHCOUNTS, Math Kangaroo levels 5-6 and 7-8, MOEMS-M, Purple Comet, AMC-8, AMC-10. The computational complexity makes these problem sets useful for preparing the AIME in the long run. About Volume 10 - Arithmetic and Number Theory The problem sets reflect the use of the most elementary facts of number theory in challenging ways. Instead of imitating contest problems, we have focused on presenting questions that explore the nuts and bolts used to create problems. This volume is particularly suitable for young students who aim to do well on AIME in later years and have the patience to explore the elementary facts of number theory in depth. We continue in level 4 with more advanced number theory. Fluency with order of operations and the ability to handle simple algebraic expressions are pre-requisites.

About Level 1 This level of the series is designed for students who know addition and subtraction with multi-digit numbers as well as simple multiplications of one-digit numbers. Some of the problems, however, involve advanced concepts and may be useful for older students.
Written to be read straight through as well as to be used as a technical reference, each chapter of this book focuses on an individual aspect of application performance and how it relates to the overall development and tune-up process. The reader will be introduced to the fundamentals of iOS performance bottlenecks and how poor application performance can and does affect a user's experience, adoption, and ultimately success This book is for iOS application developers who are interested in resolving application performance bottlenecks in both new and existing Xcode projects. Readers should be familiar with the basic concepts and principles of iOS development, Objective-C syntax, and use of Apple's Xcode development environment.
Landscape architecture is comprised of a wide and multifaceted range of very diverse outdoor space designs – stern or playful, shrill or romantic, straightforward or low key. As their main building materials are trees and shrubs, flowers and grass, landscape architecture projects are in a constant state of flux. As opposed to architectural buildings, projects in this sector are therefore never quite 'finished' or completely developed. This compendium is a reference book and source of inspiration in one, presenting around 350 current projects from around the world. They range from expansive natural and cultivated landscapes, via picturesque front yards and courtyards, spectacular greened facades and roofs, up to innovative outdoor designs that nearly or completely make do without any vegetation. They all share the fact that they constitute and provide ecologically and socially intact living spaces for human beings.

Visual Basic has begun to replace COBOL as an introductory programming language due to its ease of use and the near universal move to the Windows operating system. McKeown and Piercy's text addresses the need for a text that offers an adequate balance between the demonstration of the Visual Basic interface and teaching programming logic that the reader must know regardless of the language. The goal of this book is "to achieve a balance between demonstrating the power and excitement of Visual Basic and the need to teach traditional programming logic."
