Smart City Networks: Through the Internet of Things By Stamatina Th. Rassia, Panos M. Pardalos

English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 231 Pages | ISBN : 331961312X | 9.65 MB

This book both analyzes and synthesizes new cutting-edge theories and methods for future design implementations in smart cities through interdisciplinary synergizing of architecture, technology, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Implementation of IoT enables the collection and data exchange of objects embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity.
Recently IoT practices have moved into uniquely identifiable objects that are able to transfer data directly into networks. This book features new technologically advanced ideas, highlighting properties of smart future city networks.
Chapter contributors include theorists, computer scientists, mathematicians, and interdisciplinary planners, who currently work on identifying theories, essential elements, and practices where the IoT can impact the formation of smart cities and sustainability via optimization, network analyses, data mining, mathematical modeling and engineering. Moreover, this book includes research-based theories and real world practices aimed toward graduate researchers, experts, practitioners and the general public interested in architecture, engineering, mathematical modeling, industrial design, computer science technologies, and related fields

Learning HTTP/2: A Practical Guide for Beginners by Stephen Ludin, Javier Garza

What can your organization gain by adopting HTTP/2? How about faster, simpler, and more robust websites and applications? This practical guide demonstrates how the latest version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol can dramatically improve website and application performance. You’ll take a deep dive into HTTP/2 details, and learn how this updated protocol is changing the web landscape.
HTTP/1.1 has been the primary means of communicating data across the web for the past 20 years, but the level of interaction today has gone well beyond what people envisioned in 1997. With this book, authors Stephen Ludin and Javier Garza show you how HTTP/2 will help speed the execution of modern sites and applications.
With this book, you’ll explore:
• Performance challenges that led to the HTTP upgrade
• HTTP/2 in a nutshell, including benefits and transition methods
• Existing best practices and hacks to improve web performance
• HTTP/2 support for browsers, servers, proxies, and content delivery networks
• How the performance of sites using HTTP/2 compares to their HTTP/1.1 experience
• HTTP/2’s effect on specific issues such as latency, packet loss, and Time to First Byte (TTFB)

Social Media Law in a Nutshell by Thaddeus Hoffmeister, Ryan Garcia

English | June 22nd, 2017 | ISBN: 1634593545 | 266 pages | EPUB | 0.33 MB

Social media has transformed how the world communicates. Its impact has been felt in every corner of our society including the law. Social Media Law in a Nutshell is a wide-ranging look of how the social media transformation has impacted various legal fields. From marketing to employment to torts to criminal law to copyright and beyond, virtually every legal field has been changed by social media.
By looking at high level concerns and example cases, Social Media Law in a Nutshell attempts to give practitioners exposure to social media issues and concerns so they can better advise clients and approach the new social media world with their legal eyes opened to new and old risks alike. This book can also serve as a text for law professors looking to expose law students to the burgeoning area of Social Media Law.
