Debug It!
Professional programmers develop a knack of unerringly zeroing in on the root cause of a bug. They can do that because they've written a lot of buggy code and then gained experience fixing it. This book captures all this experience - use it, and you'll find you write fewer bugs, and the ones you do write will become easier to hunt down. more »
Seven Concurrency Models in Seven Weeks
Your software needs to leverage multiple cores, handle thousands of users and terabytes of data, and continue working in the face of both hardware and software failure. Concurrency and parallelism are the keys, and Seven Concurrency Models in Seven Weeks equips you for this new world. See how emerging technologies such as actors and functional programming address issues with traditional threads and locks development. Learn how to exploit the parallelism in your computer's GPU and leverage clusters of machines with MapReduce and Stream Processing. And do it all with the confidence that comes from using tools that help you write crystal clear, high-quality code.

This book will show you how to exploit different parallel architectures to improve your code's performance, scalability, and resilience. You'll learn about seven concurrency models: threads and locks, functional programming, separating identity and state, actors, sequential processes, data parallelism, and the lambda architecture. more »
