Conquer your fear and anxiety learning how the concepts behind object-oriented design apply to the ABAP programming environment. Through simple examples and metaphors this book demystifies the object-oriented programming model. Object-Oriented Design with ABAP presents a bridge from the familiar procedural style of ABAP to the unfamiliar object-oriented style, taking you by the hand and leading you through the difficulties associated with learning these concepts, covering not only the nuances of using object-oriented principles in ABAP software design but also revealing the reasons why these concepts have become embraced throughout the software development industry. More than simply knowing how to use various object-oriented techniques, you´ll also be able to determine whether a technique is applicable to the task the software addresses. This book: Shows how object-oriented principles apply to ABAP program design Provides the basics for creating component design diagrams Teaches how to incorporate design patterns in ABAP programs What You´ll Learn Write ABAP code using the object-oriented model as comfortably and easily as using the procedural model Create ABAP design diagrams based on the Unified Modeling Language Implement object-oriented design patterns into ABAP programs Reap the benefits of spending less time designing and maintaining ABAP programs Recognize those situations where design patterns can be most helpful Avoid long and exhausting searches for the cause of bugs in ABAP programs Who This Book Is For Experienced ABAP programmers who remain unfamiliar with the design potential presented by the object-oriented aspect of the language
Natural Meditation offers easy-to-follow meditation cues for meditating in natural settings or meditating on natural images or objects. Sidebars throughout the book provide suggestions on how to incorporate nature into your mindfulness practice. The short entries allow readers to open to a page during lunch break, at home in the evening, or on the weekend for a short ´´retreat,´´ setting off down a quiet, natural path. This book acknowledges that nature has a lot to teach us about going with the flow, letting go, awareness, calm, silence, and pausing. Whether you practice these meditations in actual natural settings or on a cushion at home, the book´s entries will inspire you to spend more time in nature. Natural Meditation emphasizes the spiritual, moral, and other tangible benefits of nature. The focus is on training the mind in relaxation, visualization, creativity, and rejuvenation, incorporating natural settings, plants, and animals. Sometimes a respite or quiet path is just what one needs in this crazy world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Coleen Marlo.

This book provides a solution to ´´rare event´´ problems without using the classical theory of reliability and theory of probability. This solution is based on the methodology of risk assessment as ´´measure of danger´´ (in keeping with the ICS RAS) and an expert approach to determining systems´ safety indications using Fuzzy Sets methods. Further, the book puts forward a new concept: ´´Reliability, Risks, and Safety´´ (RRS). The book´s main goal is to generalize present results and underscore the need to develop an alternative approach to safety level assessment and risk management for technical (aviation) systems in terms of Fuzzy Sets objects, in addition to traditional probabilistic safety analysis (PSA). The concept it proposes incorporates ICAO recommendations regarding proactive system control and the system´s responses to various internal and external disturbances.
A chilling ghost story with a twist: The New York Times best-selling author of The Winter People returns to the woods of Vermont to tell the story of a husband and wife who don´t simply move into a haunted house - they build one....In a quest for a simpler life, Helen and Nate have abandoned the comforts of suburbia to take up residence on 44 acres of rural land where they will begin the ultimate, aspirational do-it-yourself project: building the house of their dreams. When they discover that this beautiful property has a dark and violent past, Helen, a former history teacher, becomes consumed by the local legend of Hattie Breckenridge, a woman who lived and died there a century ago. With her passion for artifacts, Helen finds special materials to incorporate into the house - a beam from an old schoolroom, bricks from a mill, a mantel from a farmhouse - objects that draw her deeper into the story of Hattie and her descendants, three generations of Breckenridge women, each of whom died suspiciously. As the building project progresses, the house will become a place of menace and unfinished business: a new home, now haunted, that beckons its owners and their neighbors toward unimaginable danger. 1.

This book is dedicated to problems involving colored objects, and to results about the existence of certain exciting and unexpected properties that occur regardless of how these objects are colored. In mathematics, these results comprise the beautiful area known as Ramsey Theory. Wolfram´s Math World defines Ramsey Theory as the mathematical study of combinatorial objects in which a certain degree of order must occur as the scale of the object becomes large . Ramsey Theory thus includes parts of many fields of mathematics, including combinatorics, geometry, and number theory. This book addresses famous and exciting problems of Ramsey Theory, along with the history surrounding the discovery of Ramsey Theory. In addition, the author studies the life of Issai Schur, Pierre Joseph Henry Baudet and B.L. van der Waerden. In researching this book over the past 18 years, the author corresponded extensively with B.L. van der Waerden, Paul Erdos, Henry Baudet, and many others. As a result, this book will incorporate never before published correspondence and photographs.Historians of mathematics will herein find much new information, along with old errors corrected and published here for the first time in book form. And everyone will experience seeing, for the first time, faces one has not seen before in print, on rare and unique photographs of the creators of the mathematics presented herein, from Francis Guthrie to Frank Ramsey, and documents, such as the one where Adolph Hitler commits a micromanagement when firing Issai Schur, from his job as Professor of Mathematics at the University of Berlin.
´´Eric Evans has written a fantastic book on how you can make the design of your software match your mental model of the problem domain you are addressing. ´´His book is very compatible with XP. It is not about drawing pictures of a domain; it is about how you think of it, the language you use to talk about it, and how you organize your software to reflect your improving understanding of it. Eric thinks that learning about your problem domain is as likely to happen at the end of your project as at the beginning, and so refactoring is a big part of his technique. ´´The book is a fun read. Eric has lots of interesting stories, and he has a way with words. I see this book as essential reading for software developers-it is a future classic.´´ - Ralph Johnson , author of Design Patterns ´´If you don´t think you are getting value from your investment in object-oriented programming, this book will tell you what you´ve forgotten to do. ´´Eric Evans convincingly argues for the importance of domain modeling as the central focus of development and provides a solid framework and set of techniques for accomplishing it. This is timeless wisdom, and will hold up long after the methodologies du jour have gone out of fashion.´´ - Dave Collins , author of Designing Object-Oriented User Interfaces ´´Eric weaves real-world experience modeling-and building-business applications into a practical, useful book. Written from the perspective of a trusted practitioner, Eric´s descriptions of ubiquitous language, the benefits of sharing models with users, object life-cycle management, logical and physical application structuring, and the process and results of deep refactoring are major contributions to our field.´´ - Luke Hohmann , author of Beyond Software Architecture This book belongs on the shelf of every thoughtful software developer. --Kent Beck What Eric has managed to capture is a part of the design process that experienced object designers have always used, but that we have been singularly unsuccessful as a group in conveying to the rest of the industry. We´ve given away bits and pieces of this knowledge...but we´ve never organized and systematized the principles of building domain logic. This book is important. --Kyle Brown, author of Enterprise Java(TM) Programming with IBM® WebSphere® The software development community widely acknowledges that domain modeling is central to software design. Through domain models, software developers are able to express rich functionality and translate it into a software implementation that truly serves the needs of its users. But despite its obvious importance, there are few practical resources that explain how to incorporate effective domain modeling into the software development process. Domain-Driven Design fills that need. This is not a book about specific technologies. It offers readers a systematic approach to domain-driven design, presenting an extensive set of design best practices, experience-based techniques, and fundamental principles that facilitate the development of software projects facing complex domains. Intertwining design and development practice, this book incorporates numerous examples based on actual projects to illustrate the application of domain-driven design to real-world software development. Readers learn how to use a domain model to make a complex development effort more focused and dynamic. A core of best practices and standard patterns provides a common language for the development team. A shift in emphasis--refactoring not just the code but the model underlying the code--in combination with the frequent iterations of Agile development leads to deeper insight into domains and enhanced communication between domain expert and programmer.

Minimalism has long been advocated by many spiritual teachers throughout the ages. However, the idea that ´´less is more´´ has now hit the 21st century.Human lives have become heavily weighed down by the trappings of corporatism and capitalism. Shiny and bright objects surround us on a daily basis, and it can be hard to stop trying to ´´keep up with the Jones´´.In reality, what is often the case is that the more we own can actually own us. We become restricted on all levels, financially chained by debt, and physically our movement is restricted because we cannot just up and leave when we like.We are surrounded by clutter which can often mirror our internal worlds emotionally, and perhaps spiritually we need to let go of our materialistic mindsets in order to evolve to something greater.The conscious minimalist cares about the future of our planet, and understands that treading gently on the Earth benefits all parties involved. This audiobook will show you the following: The many benefits of living a minimalistic lifeHow living a minimalistic life can help you find happiness and financial successPractical ways to apply minimalism to your thinkingStoicism an example of a minimalistic mindsetHow to incorporate minimalism into family lifeIf this sounds like you and you want to move forward in your life, free from clutter to focus on your own path striving to become the best version of you, then just click the ´´buy´´ button above. 1.
