How can you design technology that becomes a part of a user's life and not a distraction from it? This practical book explores the concept of calm technology, a method for smoothly capturing a user's attention only when necessary, while calmly remaining in the background most of the time. You'll learn how to design products that work well, launch well, are easy to support, easy to use, and remain unobtrusive.

Author Amber Case presents ideas first introduced by researchers at Xerox PARC in 1995, and explains how they apply to our current technology landscape, especially the Internet of Things. This book is ideal for UX and product designers, managers, creative directors, and developers. You'll learn:

  • The importance and challenge of designing technology that respects our attention
  • Principles of calm design—peripheral attention, context, and ambient awareness
  • Calm communication patterns—improving attention through a variety of senses
  • Exercises for improving existing products through calm technology
  • Principles and patterns of calm technology for companies and teams
  • The origins of calm technology at Xerox PARC

Python is an excellent way to get started in programming, and this clear, concise guide walks you through Python a step at a time--beginning with basic programming concepts before moving on to functions, data structures, and object-oriented design. This revised third edition reflects the growing role of large language models (LLMs) in programming and includes exercises on effective LLM prompts, testing code, and debugging skills.

With this popular hands-on guide at your side, you'll get:

  • A grounding in the syntax and semantics of the Python language
  • A clear definition of each programming concept, with emphasis on clear vocabulary
  • How to work with variables, statements, functions, and data structures in a logical progression
  • Techniques for reading and writing files and databases
  • A solid understanding of objects, methods, and object-oriented programming
  • Debugging strategies for syntax, runtime, and semantic errors
  • An introduction to recursion, interface design, data structures, and basic algorithms
  • How to use LLMs--including effective prompts, testing code, and debugging
  • And more

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the routing protocol used to exchange routing information across the Internet. It makes it possible for ISPs to connect to each other and for end-users to connect to more than one ISP. BGP is the only protocol that is designed to deal with a network of the Internet's size, and the only protocol that can deal well with having multiple connections to unrelated routing domains.This book is a guide to all aspects of BGP: the protocol, its configuration and operation in an Internet environment, and how to troubleshooting it. The book also describes how to secure BGP, and how BGP can be used as a tool in combating Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Although the examples throughout this book are for Cisco routers, the techniques discussed can be applied to any BGP-capable router.The topics include:Requesting an AS number and IP addressesRoute filtering by remote ISPs and how to avoid thisConfiguring the initial BGP setupBalancing the available incoming or outgoing traffic over the available connectionsSecuring and troubleshooting BGPBGP in larger networks: interaction with internal routing protocols, scalability issuesBGP in Internet Service Provider networksThe book is filled with numerous configuration examples with more complex case studies at the end of the book to strengthen your understanding. BGP is for anyone interested in creating reliable connectivity to the Internet.
