            New computational design tools have evolved rapidly and been increasingly applied in the field of design in recent years, complimenting and even replacing the traditional design media and approaches. Design as both the process and product are changing due to the emergence and ado...ption of these new technologies. Understanding and assessing the impact of these new computational design environments on design and designers is important for advancing design in the contemporary context. Do these new computational environments support or hinder design creativity? How do those tools facilitate designers' thinking? Such knowledge is also important for the future development of design technologies. Research shows that design is never a mysterious non-understandable process, for example, one general view is that design process shares a common analysis-synthesis-evaluation model, during which designers interact between design problem and solution spaces. Understand designers' thinking in different environments is the key to design research, education and practice. This book focuses on emerging computational design environments, whose impact on design and designers have not been comprehensively and systematically studied. It comprises three parts. The history and recent developments of computational design technologies are introduced in Part I. The main categories of technologies cover from computer-aided drafting and modelling tools, to visual programming and scripting tools for algorithmic design, to advanced interfaces and platforms for interactions between designers, between designers and computers, and between the virtual environment and the physical reality. To critically explore design thinking, especially in these new computational design environments, formal approaches to studying design thinking and design cognition are introduced and compared in Part II, drawing on literature and studies from the 70s to the current era. Part III concludes the book by exploring the imp

            This two-volume book describes the most common IP routing protocols used today, explaining the underlying concepts of each protocol and how the protocol components and processes fit within the typical router. Unlike other books, this title is not vendor focused. Volume 1 discusse...s fundamental concepts of IP routing and distance-vector routing protocols (RIPv2 and EIGRP). Volume 2 focuses on link-state routing protocols (OSPF and IS-IS) and the only path-vector routing protocol in use today (BGP). The volumes explain the types of databases each routing protocol uses, how the databases are constructed and managed, and how the various protocol components and processes, relate and interact with the databases. They also describe the routing protocols from a systems perspective, recognizing the most important routing and packet forwarding components and functions of a router. An illustrated description of IP routing protocols is given using real-world network examples. The books are presented from a practicing engineer's perspective, linking theory and fundamental concepts to common practices and real-world examples. The discussion is presented in a simple style to make it comprehensible and appealing to undergraduate and graduate level students, research and practicing engineers, scientists, IT personnel, and network engineers.

            While most organizations recognize that universities can be a potentially rich resource for closing their analytical talent gaps, using universities exclusively for new hires is a lost opportunity for a more strategic engagement to have a positive impact on the analytical maturit...y of an organization. However, the concept of starting that conversation can be daunting. The book addresses the benefits and challenges of working with university analytics and data science programs at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels, with a concluding chapter on executive education and training current employees.

            The latest textbook from best-selling author, Douglas Comer, this class-tested book provides a comprehensive introduction to cloud computing. Focusing on concepts and principles, rather than commercial offerings by cloud providers and vendors, the text gives readers a complete pi...cture of the advantages and growth of cloud computing, cloud infrastructure, virtualization, automation and orchestration, and cloud-native software design. The book explains real and virtual data center facilities, including computation (e.g., servers, hypervisors, Virtual Machines, and containers), networks (e.g., leaf-spine architecture, VLANs, and VxLAN), and storage mechanisms (e.g. SAN, NAS, and object storage). Chapters on automation and orchestration cover the conceptual organization of systems that automate software deployment and scaling. Chapters on cloud-native software cover parallelism, microservices, MapReduce, controller-based designs, and serverless computing. Although it focuses on concepts and principles, the book uses popular technologies in examples, including Docker containers and Kubernetes. Final chapters explain security in a cloud environment and the use of models to help control the complexity involved in designing software for the cloud. The text is suitable for a one-semester course for software engineers who want to understand cloud, and for IT managers moving an organization's computing to the cloud.

            Software Engineering: A Methodical Approach provides a comprehensive, but concise introduction to software engineering. It adopts a methodical approach to solving software engineering problems, proven over several years of teaching, with outstanding results. The book covers conce...pts, principles, design, construction, implementation, and management issues of software engineering. Each chapter is organized systematically into brief, reader-friendly sections, with itemization of the important points to be remembered. Diagrams and illustrations also sum up the salient points to enhance learning. Additionally, the book includes the author's original methodologies that add clarity and creativity to the software engineering experience. New in the Second Edition are chapters on software engineering projects, management support systems, and software engineering frameworks and patterns as a significant building block for the design and construction of contemporary software systems. The text starts with an introduction of software engineering and the role of the software engineer. The following chapters examine in-depth software analysis, design, development, implementation and management. Covering object-oriented methodologies and the principles of object-oriented information engineering, the book reinforces an object-oriented approach to the early phases of the software development life cycle. It covers various diagramming techniques and emphasizes object classification and object behavior. The text features comprehensive treatment of: Project management aids that are commonly used in software engineering An overview of the software design phase, including a discussion of the software design process, design strategies, architectural design, interface design, software design, and development standards User interface design Operations design Design considerations including system catalog, product documentation, user message management, design for real-time software, design for
