Design Fundamentals For more details of the topics covered in this guide, see Contents of the Guide. This section of the guide contains a series of topics that will help you to understand the fundamentals of layered architecture, and provide practical guidance for some of the typical layers used by most applications, such as presentation, business, data, and service layers. This section contains the following chapters: Typically, each layer will contain of number of components. As you design the components in each layer, you must consider a range of factors that will affect the overall success of your design. This section of the guide contains guidance to help you design your components to avoid the commonly found issues, and to follow best practice.

John Maeda John Maeda (born 1966 in Seattle, Washington) is a Japanese-American graphic designer, computer scientist, academic, and author. His work in design, technology and leadership explores the area where the fields merge. He was the President of the Rhode Island School of Design from 2008 to 2013.[1] [2] He is currently a Design Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.[3] Maeda was originally a software engineering student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, when he became fascinated with the work of Paul Rand and Muriel Cooper.

The original proposal of the WWW, HTMLized A hand conversion to HTML of the original MacWord (or Word for Mac?) document written in March 1989 and later redistributed unchanged apart from the date added in May 1990. Provided for historical interest only. The diagrams are a bit dotty, but available in versioins linked below. The text has not been changed, even to correct errors such as misnumbered figures or unfinished references. This document was an attempt to persuade CERN management that a global hypertext system was in CERN's interests.

A graduate of the Technion in Haifa, Israel, Suraski and Andi Gutmans created PHP 3 in 1997.[3] In 1999 they wrote the Zend Engine, the core of PHP 4, and founded Zend Technologies, which has since overseen PHP advances.[4] The name Zend is a portmanteau of their forenames, Zeev and Andi. Suraski is an emeritus member of the Apache Software Foundation, and was nominated for the FSF Award for the Advancement of Free Software in 1999. Zeev Suraski is the CTO for Zend Technologies.

Life[edit] Google Cloud Storage Google Cloud Storage is a RESTful online file storage web service for storing and accessing your data on Google's infrastructure. The service combines the performance and scalability of Google's cloud with advanced security and sharing capabilities. It is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), comparable to Amazon S3 online storage service. Feasibility[edit] User activation is resourced through the API Developer Console.

Lev Manovich Lev Manovich is an author of books on new media theory, professor in Computer Science program at City University of New York, Graduate Center, U.S. and visiting professor European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. Manovich's research and teaching focuses on digital humanities, new media art and theory, and software studies[1] His best known book is The Language of New Media, which has been widely reviewed and translated into eight languages. According to two reviewers, this book offers "the first rigorous and far-reaching theorization of the subject"[2] and "it places new media within the most suggestive and broad ranging media history since Marshall McLuhan".[3] Manovich's new book Software Takes Command was published in 2013 by Bloomsbury and also released under a Creative Commons license. Biography[edit] Manovich has been working with computer media as an artist, computer animator, designer, and programmer since 1984. Manovich has been teaching new media art since 1992.

Marc Andreesen Beginnings at the University of Illinois Marc Andreesen was a student and part-time assistant at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois when the World Wide Web began to take off. His position at NCSA allowed him to become very familiar with the Internet. Like just about everyone else who was involved with the Internet, he also became familiar with the Web. Most of the browsers available then were for Unix machines which were expensive.

Brad Fitzpatrick Bradley Joseph "Brad" Fitzpatrick (born February 5, 1980 in Iowa), is an American programmer. He is best known as the creator of LiveJournal and is the author of a variety of free software projects such as memcached and OpenID. Born in Iowa, Fitzpatrick grew up in Beaverton, Oregon and majored in computer science at the University of Washington in Seattle. Frederic Bartlett Sir Frederic Charles Bartlett FRS[1] (20 October 1886 – 30 September 1969) was a British psychologist and the first professor of experimental psychology at the University of Cambridge. He was one of the forerunners of cognitive psychology. Bartlett considered most of his own work on cognitive psychology to be a study in social psychology, but he was also interested in anthropology, moral science, philosophy, and sociology.[2][3][4][5] Bartlett proudly referred to himself as "a Cambridge Psychologist" because while he was at the University of Cambridge, settling for one type of psychology was not an option.[5]

Closure (computer science) def start(x): def increment(y): return x+y return increment The closures returned by start can be assigned to variables like first_inc and second_inc. Invoking increment through the closures returns the results below: first_inc = start(0) second_inc = start(8) first_inc(3) # returns 3 second_inc(3) # returns 11 # The x value remains the same for new calls to the function: first_inc(1) # returns 1 second_inc(2) # returns 10 Alan Turing Alan Mathison Turing, OBE, FRS (/ˈtjʊərɪŋ/ TEWR-ing; 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was a British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, pioneering computer scientist, mathematical biologist, and marathon and ultra distance runner. He was highly influential in the development of computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer.[2][3][4] Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.[5] During World War II, Turing worked for the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park, Britain's codebreaking centre. For a time he led Hut 8, the section responsible for German naval cryptanalysis. After the war, he worked at the National Physical Laboratory, where he designed the ACE, among the first designs for a stored-program computer. Early life and career[edit]
