  • Praise for #MakeoverMonday"We humans can't learn alone or only by studying rules and principles. We learn in collaboration -- copying and getting feedback from others -- and by practicing, to grasp how principles apply to the real world, and when it's appropriate to tweak them or even break them. This book, the product of the Makeover Monday collaborative initiative, exemplifies this understanding of how learning really works. If you've already read some classics in the literature about data visualization, the next step is to grab this book and peruse its many before-and-after examples. You'll love some, dislike others, and even loathe a few, but in the process of mulling over all them you'll become a better visualization designer." --Alberto Cairo, Knight Chair in Visual Journalism at the University of Miami, and author of The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication"Visualizing data effectively is something you learn through practicing: making something, getting feedback, and iterating to refine and improve. The weekly #MakeoverMonday project has been a place for many people to do exactly that. With #MakeoverMonday: Improving How We Visualize and Analyze Data, One Chart at a Time, Andy and Eva have curated the thousands of visuals they've seen into a guide packed with lessons, tips, anecdotes, and examples. If you work with data, you'll appreciate the varied and creative approaches, learn mistakes to avoid, and be inspired to do your own practicing to take your data visualization game to the next level!"--Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, author of storytelling with data"#MakeoverMonday grew from a weekly blog series into a worldwide social data project, with some of the best talent in the data visualization community participating each week. This book compiles years of learning and hundreds of visualizations from that project into a practical guide that will prove essential for anyone working with data." --Jeffrey A. Shaffer, Co-author of The Big Book of Dashboards, Adjunct Professor teaching Data Visualization at the University of Cincinnati"Real-word case studies? Captivating visualizations? Practical career tips? This book has it all. Phenomenal."--Kirill Eremenko, CEO, SuperDataScience

    Where does interaction design come from? What foundations are relevant today? In this book, internationally renowned scholars and designers explore how the avant-garde ambitions of the 1920-30s Bauhaus to re-align new technology with emerging social needs combines with a more contemporary sensitivity to participation and the social creativity inherent in the modern digital design materials."These creators of the Digital Bauhaus pose here the key questions for our profession and our society and they offer thought-provoking avenues for each reader to follow."Terry Winograd, editor of "Bringing Design to Software""The papers together explore the possibilities for creating an 'aesthetic-technical production orientation' that recontextualizes technology as skilled practice, as always political, and as best created through sustained engagements among people, and between people and things."Lucy Suchman, author of "Plans and Situated Action"

    Praise for .NET--A Complete Development Cycle "Excellent step-by-step walkthrough of software development with .NET for architects and programmers. Great explanation of current software development methodologies, and a wealth of practical examples using current techniques." --Phil Syme Technical Lead Watson Wyatt Worldwide Washington, D.C. "This book takes a unique approach to integrating real-world development examples to illustrate the phases and tasks of the software development lifecycle." --Jackie Goldstein Renaissance Computer Systems Ltd. and MSDN Regional Director "In this book the authors excel in presenting all aspects of the .NET development cycle in a format accessible to the beginner, and as a primer and reference for the experienced developer. It is exemplary in its encouragement of good software engineering technique from the outset by adhering to the Unified Process. This book is not only educational and informative, but working through it is fun!" --Dr. Oliver Downs Chief Scientist, Analytical Insights, Inc. http: //www.analyticalinsights.com "As a software project manager, I found this book and accompanying CD to be a valuable aid to help sort out the practical application of .NET from all the hype." --Daniel Paulish Software engineering project manager with more than 20 years' experience .NET--A Complete Development Cycle is the first guide to combining the best software-engineering practices of the Unified Process with the ins and outs of the .NET architecture. The book begins with an overview of the principles of software engineering and then introduces Microsoft technologies such as Visual C#, Windows Forms (WinForms), ADO.NET, and ASP.NET. Central to this practical guide is a case study developing a working imaging application. As the authors lead readers through the complete lifecycle of this .NET development project, they teach effective software-engineering methodologies, including top strategies for requirements engineering, functional breakdown, design reviews, implementation, testing, and deployment. Readers will also learn how to make the most of tools such as the Unified Modeling Language (UML), GDI+, multithreading, Web Services Description Language (WSDL), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI), and versioning. By actively participating in this case study, readers become working members of the development team. They use their newly acquired knowledge to accomplish tasks critical to the successful creation of the Web-based smart-client application. Whether you are making the transition to .NET architecture or are an experienced Microsoft developer, project lead, or software quality engineer who wants to learn effective software-engineering techniques, .NET--A Complete Development Cycle is an invaluable resource. Readers will come away with the foundation needed to use .NET technologies to design and build complete applications, a solid understanding of good software-engineering practices, and a working Web-based imaging application that can easily be expanded or customized.

    Kaplan (of Accenture's internal IT organization) and Dunn (a .NET developer and architect at Avaneda) present a guide for helping software developers leverage directory services from Active Directory and Active Directory / Application Mode (ADAM) in the .NET applications. They primarily focus on programming Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) code with the System.DirectoryServices namespace, although where functionality or a scenario that is not addressed with System.DirectoryServices, they do discuss new additions to .NET, System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory and System.DirectoryServices.Protocols. They also pay significant attention to Microsoft's primary LDAP directory service product, Active Directory, as well as to ADAM. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
