A. Epilogue

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Jesse happens to hate epilogues. He thinks, and sometimes I agree, that they are a waste of time. Mostly, no one ever reads them. However, our editors at O'Reilly disagree, and without them our children might go hungry. So, on the off chance that you'll take a look, I've written one for you.

In this book, we have given you a complete tour of .NET 3.5. You have seen how it increases your productivity on a wide range of systems, from your desktop to the data center. By now, you should have a deep appreciation that .NET 3.5 provides a solid foundation for building connected and appealing applications.

In our opinion, the features you will find most compelling in .NET 3.5 are as follows:

Deep integration of Language INtegrated Query (LINQ) and data awareness

Support for Web 2.0 AJAX-style applications and services in ASP.NET and WCF

Full tooling support for WF, WCF, and WPF, including the new workflowenabled services technology

Hopefully, you have come away with the sense that this book is a great introduction to each of the "silos" that make up the .NET 3.5 platform. If you're ready to dive deeper into the areas that interest you most, we suggest the following titles (also from O'Reilly):

2. Implementing Controllers and Views

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

All iOS applications essentially use the Model-View-Controller, or MVC architecture. Model, view, and controller are the three main components of an iOS application from an architectural perspective.

The model is the brain of the application. It does the calculations and creates a virtual world for itself that can live without the views and controllers. In other words, think of a model as a virtual copy of your application, without a face!

A view is the window through which your users interact with your application. It displays whats inside the model most of the time, but in addition to that, it accepts users interactions. Any interaction between the user and your application is sent to a view, which then can be captured by a view controller and sent to the model.

Controllers in iOS programming usually refer to view controllers. Think of view controllers as a bridge between the model and your views. They interpret what is happening on one side (what the user does on the view side, or the information provided by the model) and use that information to alter the other side as needed.

Abstract— We research and develop an intelligent lighting system to improve office workers comfort and to reduce the power consumption. We have introduced the intelligent lighting system to realize individual lighting environments into real office environments. According to target illuminance values, we reduce the power consumption drastically. We are considering to introduced the intelligent lighting system to the larger office. On the other hand, we have proposed the effective lighting control algorithm Adaptive Neighborhood Algorithm using Regression Coefficient:ANA/RC. In this method, to learn the positional relation of lightings and illuminance sensors using regression coefficient, luminous intensity is capable of appropriately changing. In the future, to introduce the intelligent lighting system to the larger office, we have to verify increasing learning time of the positional relation and accuracy of lighting extraction.

15 Put the Idea into Action

Slice ePub May 15, 2014

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Will Rogers

A vice president in an advertising agency is a “molehill man.” A molehill man is a pseudobusy executive who comes to work at 9 a.m. and finds a molehill on his desk. He has until 5 p.m. to make this molehill into a mountain. An accomplished molehill man will have his mountain finished even before lunch.

Fred Allen

When I was kidnapped, my parents snapped into action. They rented out my room.

Woody Allen

As we discussed in chapter 7, you must screw up your courage and tell somebody about your idea.

And if it meets with yawns or jeers, you must press on.

But what happens when it’s met with applause?

George Ade was a prolific writer in the early part of the 1900s. I once read an interview of his mother by a man who was not an admirer of her son’s work, and he was indelicate enough to ask her about George’s alleged capricious style and wobbly structure and shallow characterizations.

Finally Mrs. Ade had enough. “Oh, I know that many people can write better than George does,” she said. “But George does.”
