The Internet Trap: How the Digital Economy Builds Monopolies and Undermines Democracy

Princeton University | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 0691159262 | 256 pages | PDF | 4.01 MB
by Matthew Hindman (Author)
A book that challenges everything you thought you knew about the online economy
The internet was supposed to fragment audiences and make media monopolies impossible. Instead, behemoths like Google and Facebook now dominate the time we spend online―and grab all the profits from the attention economy. The Internet Trap explains how this happened. This provocative and timely book sheds light on the stunning rise of the digital giants and the online struggles of nearly everyone else―and reveals what small players can do to survive in a game that is rigged against them.
Matthew Hindman shows how seemingly tiny advantages in attracting users can snowball over time. The internet has not reduced the cost of reaching audiences―it has merely shifted who pays and how. Challenging some of the most enduring myths of digital life, Hindman explains why the internet is not the postindustrial technology that has been sold to the public, how it has become mathematically impossible for grad students in a garage to beat Google, and why net neutrality alone is no guarantee of an open internet. He also explains why the challenges for local digital news outlets and other small players are worse than they appear and demonstrates what it really takes to grow a digital audience and stay alive in today’s online economy.
The Internet Trap shows why, even on the internet, there is still no such thing as a free audience

Scala in Action by Nilanjan Raychaudhuri

English | ISBN: 1935182757 | 2013 | EPUB | 419 pages | 12,7 MB

Scala in Action is a comprehensive tutorial that introduces Scala through clear explanations and numerous hands-on examples. Because Scala is a rich and deep language, it can be daunting to absorb all the new concepts at once. This book takes a “how-to” approach, explaining language concepts as you explore familiar programming challenges that you face in your day-to-day work.
About the Technology
Scala runs on the JVM and combines object-orientation with functional programming. It’s designed to produce succinct, type-safe code, which is crucial for enterprise applications. Scala implements Actor-based concurrency through the amazing Akka framework, so you can avoid Java’s messy threading while interacting seamlessly with Java.

The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes: Deploying and managing highly-available and fault-tolerant applications at scale (The DevOps Toolkit Series) by Viktor Farcic

English | October 9th, 2018 | ISBN: 1980690138 | 394 Pages | EPUB | 13.27 MB

The goal of this book is not to convince you to adopt Kubernetes but to provide a detailed overview of its features. I want you to become confident in your Kubernetes knowledge and only then choose whether to embrace it. That is, unless you already made up your mind and stumbled upon this book in search of Kubernetes guidance.
The plan is to cover all aspect behind Kubernetes, from basic to advanced features. We’ll go not only through the tools behind the official project but also third-party add-ons. I hope that, by the time you finish reading this book, you will be able to call yourself “Kubernetes ninja”. I cannot say that you will know everything there is to know about the Kubernetes ecosystem.
That would be impossible to accomplish since its growing faster than any single person could follow. What I can say is that you will be very confident in running a Kubernetes cluster of any scale in production. Like all my other books, this one is very hands-on. There will be just enough theory for you to understand the principles behind each topic. The book is packed with examples, so I need to give you a heads up. Do not buy this book if you’re planning to read it on a bus or in bed before going to sleep. You will need to be in front of your computer.
A terminal will be your best friend. `kubectl` will be your lover. The book assumes that you feel comfortable with containers, especially Docker. We won’t go into details how to build an image, what is container registry, and how to write Dockerfile. I hope you already know all that. If that’s not the case, you might want to postpone reading this and learn at least basic container operations. This book is about things that happen after you built your images and stored them in a registry. This book is about running containers at scale and not panicking when problems arise. It is about the present and the future of software deployment and monitoring. It’s about embracing the challenges and staying ahead of the curve.
