New Packt Courses for December 2018

//New Packt Courses for December 2018

Newly released for the holiday period: dozens of books and videos on the cutting-edge tech you need to be ready for 2019. From combining Python with the power of React, to robotic process automation, here’s what’s new for December.

Application Development

When C# programs become more complex, they become harder to maintain. Solve the problem. Write better C# code with the new perspectives provided by functional programming. Hands-On Functional C# teaches you how to write functional C# code that is readable, reusable, testable and structured.

One of the best things about Python is that it fits well into any web developer’s skill set. With the help of Django, Python’s high-end web framework, Consuming Python API’s with React gets you to rapidly develop your own websites and build web APIs that are clean and easy to maintain and re-write, all while allowing you to integrate your Python code with powerful JavaScript frameworks such as React.js.

Other top December titles include:

Big Data and Business Intelligence

With the flexibility and features of scikit-learn and Python, build machine learning algorithms that optimize the programming process and take application performance to a whole new level! Machine Learning Fundamentals shows you the difference between supervised and unsupervised models, as well as the importance of choosing the appropriate algorithm for each dataset. You’ll apply unsupervised clustering algorithms over real-world datasets, to discover patterns and profiles, and explore the process to solve an unsupervised machine learning problem.

PostgreSQL in 7 Days will help you unravel the potential of PostgreSQL in a short time. You will learn about relational databases to present usable and accurate data in tables with rows and columns in just a week. You also cover the latest features of PostgreSQL 11.

Web Development

In Hands-on Server-Side Web Development with Swift, learn to build professional web applications and web services using Swift 4.0 and leveraging two popular Swift web frameworks: Vapor 3.0 and Kitura 2.5.

The ultimate guide to using the latest features of JavaScript and Node.js to scrape data from websites! In Learning Web Scraping with JavaScript, you’ll see how to extract data from static web pages. After covering the basics, you’ll get hands-on practice building more sophisticated scripts. You’ll determine when and how to scrape data from a JavaScript-dependent website using JavaScript scraping libraries. You’ll find out how to automate these actions with JavaScript packages such as Cheerio and CasperJS.

Other December releases include:

Virtualization and Cloud

Microservices bring new challenges that weren’t present in simpler architectures. C# Microservices Development on Azure will teach you how to handle all those challenges and overcome various obstacles including services communication and state management. Scaling monolithic applications can be expensive or even impossible. In this course, you’ll learn to break down monoliths into smaller microservices written in C# and .NET Core. You’ll easily develop, deploy, maintain, and scale them into clusters without worrying about low-level configuration with the help of Visual Studio and Azure Service Fabric.

Docker containers promise to radicalize the way developers and operations build, deploy, and manage applications running on the cloud. Kubernetes provides the orchestration tools you need to realize that promise in production. Kubernetes on AWS guides you in deploying a production-ready Kubernetes cluster on the AWS platform. You will then discover how to utilize the power of Kubernetes, which is one of the fastest growing platforms for production-based container orchestration, to manage and update your applications. Kubernetes is becoming the go-to choice for production-grade deployments of cloud-native applications.

Other December releases include:

Networking and Servers

Kali Linux is the premier platform for testing and maintaining Windows security. Learning Windows Penetration Testing Using Kali Linux course will help you understand the threats and how to safeguard your network and websites. In this course, you’ll start by gathering information about the target network and websites to discover all the vulnerable ports. Moving on, you’ll learn to bypass security restrictions using exploitation tools to access the target system. Also, you’ll hack websites using various pentesting tools and learn how to present your test reports.

In Docker Quick State Guide, learn how to set up a Docker development environment on a Linux, Mac, or Windows workstation, and learn your way around all the commands to run and manage your Docker images and containers. Explore the Dockerfile and learn how to build your own enterprise-grade Docker images. Then you will learn about Docker networks, Docker swarm, and Docker volumes, and how to use these features with Docker stacks in order to define, deploy, and maintain highly-scalable, fault-tolerant multi-container applications.

Business, Game Development, and Hardware

Hands-On Industrial Internet of Things takes you through the implementation of industrial processes and specialized control devices and protocols. You’ll study the process of identifying and connecting to different industrial data sources gathered from different sensors. Furthermore, you’ll be able to connect these sensors to cloud network, such as AWS IoT, Azure IoT, Google IoT, and OEM IoT platforms, and extract data from the cloud to your devices.

Blue Prism is a pioneer of robotic process automation software, and Robotic Process Automation with Blue Prism Quick Start Guide gives you a solid foundation to programming robots with Blue Prism. If you’ve been tasked with automating work processes, but don’t know where to start, this is the book for you!
