This book presents research results of PowerWeb, TU Delft´s consortium for interdisciplinary research on intelligent, integrated energy systems and their role in markets and institutions. In operation since 2012, it acts as a host and information platform for a growing number of projects, ranging from single PhD student projects up to large integrated and international research programs. The group acts in an inter-faculty fashion and brings together experts from electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, mechanical engineering, technology and policy management, control engineering, civil engineering, architecture, aerospace engineering, and industrial design. The interdisciplinary projects of PowerWeb are typically associated with either of three problem domains: Grid Technology, Intelligence and Society. PowerWeb is not limited to electricity: it bridges heat, gas, and other types of energy with markets, industrial processes, transport, and the built environment, serving as a singular entry point for industry to the University´s knowledge. Via its Industry Advisory Board, a steady link to business owners, manufacturers, and energy system operators is provided.
Discover the open source Eclipse Tasking Engine Advanced (TEA) project in this compact to-the-point book. It covers how to automate tasks using TEA and focuses on simplifying and aiding the creation of extensions for the Eclipse IDE in a way which makes them accessible both from the IDE´s UI and in a headless fashion from the command line. Additionally, Eclipse TEA Revealed explores the library of pre-built components included with TEA, mostly in the area of rich client platform (RCP)-based Java application development, for building projects, updating sites, dealing with target platforms, and more. After reading and using this book, you´ll be up to speed on the fundamentals of Eclipse TEA and ready to use it for more productive Java-based application builds and developments. What You Will Learn View TEA´s internal architecture Work with TEA´s APIs Write TEA components Use the pre-built TEA components Set up headless environments using TEA Who This Book Is For Readers should be Java developers interested in extending the Eclipse IDE and/or setting up headless environments based on Eclipse.
Instagram is the fastest growing of all social media platforms, with 400 million monthly active users worldwide - half of whom are under the age of twenty-five. While some use the app as a personal networking tool, many also use it to build their creative business endeavours; whether in food and drink or fashion and lifestyle. Sara Tasker has done just that, and since setting up her account whilst on maternity leave in 2013, has become an Instagram coach, iPhoneographer and social media influencer. Her chronicle of authentic everyday life and her mindful Me and Orla blog has developed into a business in which she provides access to free insta-tips, alongside some hugely popular paid for e-courses for independent creatives. Hashtag Authentic draws on the lessons Sara has learned over the past five years to provide readers with tips, advice and guidance on how to turn their personal Instagram account into a profitable creative outlet. From visual storytelling and improving photography skills to archiving day-to-day life and changing the work/life balance, this book is both an inspiring manual and an interactive tool for finding an online voice, growing a tribe and becoming an influencer.
Learn a use-case approach for developing Java enterprise applications in a continuously test-driven fashion. With this hands-on guide, authors and JBoss project leaders Andrew Lee Rubinger and Aslak Knutsen show you how to build high-level components, from persistent storage to the user interface, using the Arquillian testing platform and several other JBoss projects and tools. Through the course of the book, you?ll build a production-ready software conference tracker called GeekSeek, using source code from GitHub. Rubinger and Knutsen demonstrate why testing is the very foundation of development?essential for ensuring that code is consumable, complete, and correct. * Bootstrap an elementary Java EE project from start to finish before diving into the full-example application, GeekSeek * Use both relational and NoSQL storage models to build and test GeekSeek?s data persistence layers * Tackle testable business logic development and asynchronous messaging with an SMTP service * Expose enterprise services as a RESTful interface, using Java EE?s JAX-RS framework * Implement OAuth authentication with JBoss?s PicketLink identity management service * Validate the UI by automating interaction in the browser and reading the rendered page * Perform full-scale integration testing on the final deployable archive
On January 21, 1971, couturier Yves Saint Laurent presented his Spring-Summer haute couture collection. Inspired by the garments of the war years, the collection included short dresses, platform shoes, square shoulders, and exaggerated makeup. The show caused an outrage among the public, the critics, and the press alike, earning it the title of ´´Paris´s ugliest collection.´´ Nevertheless, the haute couture designs of the runway made their way to the boulevards, giving full sway to the ´´retro´´ trend that quickly conquered the streets. Yves Saint Laurent: The Scandal Collection, 1971 offers a behind-the-scenes look at the influential collection that ´´drew fire in the fashion world´´-from the collection´s inspiration to the press coverage that followed. Beautifully illustrated and documented with well-researched essays, this book is enriched with personal interviews and archival photographs of the show, the models, the designs, and the textile and print samples, as well as sketches and international press clippings.
