Emerging trends in communication networks

The “SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering” series comprises relatively short books, usually up to 100 pages. They contain concise summaries of current research and practical...
Network Architecture & Design (C.2.1) | Oct 14 14

Real-world wireless sensor networks

The most important merit of this conference, and the proceedings, is that all presented designs are physically built and tested. Experimental results are those that prove a system against simulations that might hide real problems. This book consists of...

Exercises in programming style

This is a very good book on programming styles, a crucial aspect of programming that is not given enough importance. The author has taken her inspiration from the book by French writer Raymond Queneau. In his book, Queneau writes the same story in different...

Exercises in programming style

“How do I program thee? Let me count the ways.” So might Lopes paraphrase the well-known poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. In this book, she writes the same program in 33 different programming styles. The idea is borrowed from a book by a French author...

Learn Raspberry Pi programming with Python

This book is bizarrely titled. What “learn programming” book has a section called “Bonus: Soldering Techniques,” or contains the sentence, “You’ll need to purchase or rent a tank of helium from a party supply store or welding supply house?” It is indicative...
