Multi-core chips from Intel and AMD offer a dramatic boost in speed and responsiveness, and plenty of opportunities for multiprocessing on ordinary desktop computers. But they also present a challenge: More than ever, multithreading is a requirement for good performance. This guide explains how to maximize the benefits of these processors through a portable C++ library that works on Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and Unix systems. With it, you'll learn how to use Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB) effectively for parallel programming -- without having to be a threading expert.Written by James Reinders, Chief Evangelist of Intel Software Products, and based on the experience of Intel's developers and customers, this book explains the key tasks in multithreading and how to accomplish them with TBB in a portable and robust manner. With plenty of examples and full reference material, the book lays out common patterns of uses, reveals the gotchas in TBB, and gives important guidelines for choosing among alternatives in order to get the best performance.You'll learn how Intel Threading Building Blocks:Enables you to specify tasks instead of threads for better portability, easier programming, more understandable source code, and better performance and scalability in generalFocuses on the goal of parallelizing computationally intensive work to deliver high-level solutionsIs compatible with other threading packages, and doesn't force you to pick one package for your entire programEmphasizes scalable, data-parallel programming, which allows program performance to increase as you add processorsRelies on generic programming, which enables you to write the best possible algorithms with the fewest constraintsAny C++ programmer who wants to write an application to run on a multi-core system will benefit from this book. TBB is also very approachable for a C programmer or a C++ programmer without much experience with templates. Best of all, you don't need experience with parallel programming or multi-core processors to use this book.
Quickly Building Web Sites with CCK, Views and Panels
'Even if you're already a seasoned Drupal user of CCK, Views, or Panels, I've no doubt that this book will provide you with several new techniques and methods for getting the most out of these extremely essential modules. It certainly has for me.' -Dries Buytaert, founder and project lead of Drupal, and CTO of Acquia With Drupal, Web professionals can create full-featured Web sites with just a few clicks. Drupal's core is compact and well documented, but much of Drupal's immense power lies elsewhere-in external modules. Drupal's Building Blocks is an authoritative tutorial, reference, and cookbook for Drupal's most valuable modules. The authors are Drupal insiders who've spent years creating and supporting these modules-Earl Miles, developer o...
Building Blocks for Creating Enterprise Applications and Services
Writing robust enterprise applications presents a special challenge for developers, but Microsoft has addressed that challenge with the free, downloadable Enterprise Library for the .NET Framework. Enterprise Library is a collection of application blocks and guidance documents that together provide functionality common to enterprise applications; each application block includes full source code. Lacking in the guidance provided by Microsoft is an overall roadmap to the process of using the application blocks. Effective Use of Microsoft Enterprise Library is that roadmap. Microsoft application development lead architect Len Fenster explains exactly how to build applications using Enterprise Library application blocks. Fenster covers all seven appli...
API Features and Arduino Projects for Linux Programmers
Intel Galileo and Intel Galileo Gen 2: API Features and Arduino Projects for Linux Programmers provides detailed information about Intel Galileo and Intel Galileo Gen 2 boards for all software developers interested in Arduino and the Linux platform. The book covers the new Arduino APIs and is an introduction for developers on natively using Linux.Author Manoel Carlos Ramon is a member of the Intel Galileo development team; in this book he draws on his practical experience in working on the Galileo project as he shares the team's findings, problems, fixes, workarounds, and techniques with the open source community. His areas of expertise are wide-ranging, including Linux-embedded kernel and device drivers, C/C++, Java, OpenGL, Assembler, Android NDK/S...
