Functional Programming Patterns in Scala and Clojure: Write Lean Programs for the JVM

Resolve real-life programming issues of a fragment of the code that natural object-oriented programming calls for. Use Scala and Clojure to resolve in-depth issues of units of styles: object-oriented styles that turn into extra concise with useful programming, and natively useful styles.

Programming Smalltalk – Object-Orientation from the Beginning: An introduction to the principles of programming

A simple, step by step creation to transparent and chic object-oriented programming. utilizing a language that's excellent for this sort of programming, the publication has been confirmed in different classes and workshops over ten years.

Programming Smalltalk is very fitted to readers without past programming wisdom. ranging from the 1st rules of programming, it teaches you ways to exploit and create algorithms (reusable principles for problem-solving) and the elemental development blocks of software program. It is going directly to clarify the way to strengthen entire functions and has a complete bankruptcy on internet purposes in addition to case studies.

Now translated into English, this version used to be thoroughly revised to be in line with the newest model of Cincom® VisualWorks®, a qualified Smalltalk atmosphere. All examples have been created utilizing VisualWorks, that is on hand for free for academic reasons, and will be downloaded and put in on any updated computing device.

Example text

Toll-free bridged” layers Some of the layers offer more fundamental duplication. For example, NSString in Cocoa is closely related to CFString in the Core Foundation framework. Some objects are explicitly described as toll-free bridged — Apple’s way of indicating that objects and their interfaces are largely interchangeable, even though they exist in different layers. In fact, many Cocoa objects are simply wrappers for lower-level functions that are listed in other frameworks. You can ignore this if you develop exclusively in Cocoa, and you can also ignore the lower-level functions unless you need to work with them.

Applications use multiple windows. Windows typically float over the desktop and not inside a separate application window. There is a single menu bar at the top of the screen. Different windows do not have different menus. Applications should start and quit quickly. Applications must support the OS X Dock. Full-screen modes are allowed, and users are responsible for arranging windows on top of the Dock. OS X supports multiple users. Users should be able to use the same application on the same machine in different sessions without conflicts.

There is a thriving market for plug-ins and accessory applications that support the market leaders. For example, software music synthesizer and audio processing plug-ins are steady sellers, and the plug-in and accessory market for video and graphic design applications is similarly robust. Plug-ins and helper applications are smaller and simpler than full applications, and can be developed much more quickly — and profitably. 4 Ableton’s Live is one of the few media applications to successfully invent a new application niche.
