  • In this chapter, we speculated about what might be coming up in the Google API. Along with the new services, we can expect better tools. As with any web application, Google will be c- tinually improving on the existing components of the Maps API. Tools like the geocoder will eventually expand to cover more countries and improve accuracy as more detailed infor- tion becomes available. Satellite imagery will increase in detail and will be updated continually with more and more recent images. Now we are ready to move on to some more advanced mapping techniques. In the next part of the book, we'll cover a wide variety of complementary concepts for your mapping projects. Chapter 9 demonstrates how to make your own info windows and tool tips, as well as other overlay-related tricks. In Chapter 10, we cover some mathematics you may need in a professional map. Finally, in Chapter 11, we show you how to build your own geocoder from scratch, using a raw data set. PART 3 ? ? ? Advanced Map Features and Methods CHAPTER 9 ? ? ? Advanced Tips and Tricks Beyond what you've seen so far, the Google Maps API has a number of features that are often overlooked. Here, you'll go through a variety of examples to learn how to use some of the more advanced features of the API, such as the ability to change map tiles and the possibility of c- ating your own overlay objects.

  • Learn to build custom SSIS tasks using Visual Studio Community Edition and Visual Basic. Bring all the power of Microsoft .NET to bear on your data integration and ETL processes, and for no added cost over what you've already spent on licensing SQL Server. If you already have a license for SQL Server, then you do not need to spend more money to extend SSIS with custom tasks and components. 
    Why are custom components necessary? Because even though the SSIS catalog of built-in tasks and components is a marvel of engineering, there do remain gaps in the functionality that is provided. These gaps are especially relevant to enterprises practicing Data Integration Lifecycle Management (DILMS) and/or DevOps. 
    One of the gaps is a limitation of the SSIS Execute Package task. Developers using the stock version of that task are unable to select SSIS packages from other projects. Yet it's useful to be able to select and execute tasks across projects, and the example used throughout this book will help you to create an Execute Catalog Package task that does in fact allow you to execute a task from another project. Building on the example's pattern, you can create any task that you like, custom tailored to your specific, data integration and ETL needs.
    What You Will LearnConfigure and execute Visual Studio in the way that best supports SSIS task development
    Create a class library as the basis for an SSIS task, and reference the needed SSIS assemblies
    Properly sign assemblies that you create in order to invoke them from your task
    Implement source code control via Visual Studio Team Services, or your own favorite tool set
    Code not only your tasks themselves, but also the associated task editors
    Troubleshoot and then execute your custom tasks as part of your own projectWho This Book Is For
    Database administrators and developers who are involved in ETL projects built around SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Readers should have a background in programming along with a desire to optimize their ETL efforts by creating custom-tailored tasks for execution from SSIS packages.

    • 31 Janvier 2013

    This book is about coding interview questions from software and Internet companies. It covers five key factors which determine performance of candidates: (1) the basics of programming languages, data structures and algorithms, (2) approaches to writing code with high quality, (3) tips to solve difficult problems, (4) methods to optimize code, (5) soft skills required in interviews. The basics of languages, algorithms and data structures are discussed as well as questions that explore how to write robust solutions after breaking down problems into manageable pieces. It also includes examples to focus on modeling and creative problem solving.Interview questions from the most popular companies in the IT industry are taken as examples to illustrate the five factors above. Besides solutions, it contains detailed analysis, how interviewers evaluate solutions, as well as why they like or dislike them. The author makes clever use of the fact that interviewees will have limited time to program meaningful solutions which in turn, limits the options an interviewer has. So the author covers those bases.Readers will improve their interview performance after reading this book. It will be beneficial for them even after they get offers, because its topics, such as approaches to analyzing difficult problems, writing robust code and optimizing, are all essential for high-performing coders.

Utilizing many examples and projects, this book teaches you how to get data into R and how to work with that data using R. Once grounded in the fundamentals, the rest of Practical R 4 dives into specific projects and examples starting with running and analyzing a survey using R and LimeSurvey. Next, you'll carry out advanced statistical analysis using R and MouselabWeb. Then, you'll see how R can work for you without statistics, including how R can be used to automate data formatting, manipulation, reporting, and custom functions.
    The final part of this book discusses using R on a server; you'll build a script with R that can run an RStudio Server and monitor a report source for changes to alert the user when something has changed. This project includes both regular email alerting and push notification. And, finally, you'll use R to create a customized daily rundown report of a person's most important information such as a weather report, daily calendar, to-do's and more. This demonstrates how to automate such a process so that every morning, the user navigates to the same web page and gets the updated report.What You Will Learn Set up and run an R script, including installation on a new machine and downloading and configuring R Turn any machine into a powerful data analytics platform accessible from anywhere with RStudio Server Write basic R scripts and modify existing scripts to suit your own needs Create basic HTML reports in R, inserting information as neededBuild a basic R package and distribute it
