Most software developers have inherited legacy or brownfield projects that require maintenance, incremental improvements, or even cleaning up the mess another programmer left behind.
Brownfield Application Development in .NET shows developers how to approach legacy applications with the state-of-the-art concepts, patterns, and tools developers apply to new projects. Using an existing application as an example, this book guides readers in applying the techniques and best practices they need to make a brownfield application more maintainable and receptive to change.
As the book proceeds, the authors introduce frameworks and tools commonly used today while still approaching the subject from a conceptual level so that you can substitute alternate tools as appropriate. Because the book is based on the authors’ experiences, Brownfield Application Development in .NET moves beyond the theories and shows readers the techniques they need to be successful.
About the Author
Donald Belcham is an independent contractor who has been developing applications for the public and private sectors of North America and the South Pacific since 2000. In those years he has built some green field applications, but more often than not he has inherited partially completed systems (brownfield) which were in dire need of resuscitation.
Kyle Baley has been developing applications since 1998 with a focus on web applications. He has built software for a number of industries, including transportation, telecommunications, private banking, oil and gas, online education, and hotels and hospitality.

Even good code can be tough to understand when you simply read it-even if you’re a developer and you know what it does! A Domain Specific Language (DSL) helps a developer clearly express the intent of the code, and thus make it easier to work on the core business problem.
Developers who migrate to Ruby from Java love Boo’s ability to define a DSL for .NET in a just few lines of code. In Boo, the developer can define simple DSLs for .NET applications without suffering through the awkward XML usually required.
Building Domain Specific Languages in Boo shows how to write DSLs for .NET. It starts by teaching what a DSL is. Then, it provides a fast-paced Boo tutorial. Readers immediately start putting this handy language to productive use as they learn how to implement DSLs in real code.
The author shows how to create several types of DSLs, all with the goal of making the developer more productive. Along the way, readers learn the Boo they need techniques to scare away the evil XML.

Flex 4 is an open-source tool that allows developers to easily add life to web applications with dynamic user features, colorful transitions, and eye-catching animations. Flex also provides powerful data handling for industrial-strength applications.
We think it should be just as much fun to learn Flex as it is to use it. And we know that fun learning gets better results. Hello! Flex 4 demonstrates how to get started without getting bogged down in technical detail or academic edge cases. In this book, User Friendly cartoon characters offer commentary and snide side comments, as the book moves quickly from Hello World into practical techniques. Each one is illustrated with a hands-on example. Along the way, readers will build a unique Flex application that mashes Yahoo Maps with Twitter to keep track of friends.

The main subject of this book is the fuzzy c-means proposed by Dunn and Bezdek and their variations including recent studies. A main reason why we concentrate on fuzzy c-means is that most methodology and application studies in fuzzy clustering use fuzzy c-means, and hence fuzzy c-means should be considered to be a major technique of clustering in general, regardless whether one is interested in fuzzy methods or not. Unlike most studies in fuzzy c-means, what we emphasize in this book is a family of algorithms using entropy or entropy-regularized methods which are less known, but we consider the entropy-based method to be another useful method of fuzzy c-means. Throughout this book one of our intentions is to uncover theoretical and methodological differences between the Dunn and Bezdek traditional method and the entropy-based method. We do note claim that the entropy-based method is better than the traditional method, but we believe that the methods of fuzzy c-means become complete by adding the entropy-based method to the method by Dunn and Bezdek, since we can observe natures of the both methods more deeply by contrasting these two.

A focussed and practical text suitable for a first course in Computer Networking. The author presents only the core aspects of the subject rather than getting weighed down with too much peripheral (and often complicating) detail. The author also takes a learn by doing’ approach and the book is full of practical exercises which allow the reader to put into practice what they have just read.
