Cloud computing is “the next big thing” in computer technology and the Google Chrome Operating System is at the forefront of its development. With Google Chrome, the software and the documents you create are all stored on Google servers somewhere. Everything is saved automatically, and backed up automatically. If your Google Chrome computer gets stolen, you lose nothing except the computer - all your stuff is still there on the Google servers. You don’t have to worry about viruses because there is an army of Google engineers watching out for them. Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of Chrome computing is that almost everything is free. That includes the operating system and a complete suite of office applications. Even the computers themselves are very inexpensive with prices starting at around $200.Cloud computing may be the next big thing, but that means that people who want to make use of this new technology will need a guide to help them make the transition from the old way of doing things to the new Chrome way. This book is just such a guide. It distills hundreds of pages of Google support documents into 116 pages of detailed instructions on how to setup and how to use all of the powerful features Chrome makes available.This book explains all of the newest Chrome technologies such as: Two-Step Authentication, Application Specific Passwords, Google Cloud Print, Google Docs, Gmail, Google Groups, and much more. What sets this book apart is that it not only describes these various aspects of Chrome, it also provides step-by-step instructions for setting-up and then using all of the modern Chrome features. Numerous screen shots are included to help clarify what the text says.Whether you have just bought your first Chromebook laptop or whether you have been using the Chrome web browser for some time, you will learn something, perhaps a lot, from this book. Chrome is going to revolutionize the way computing is done in the future. And you can experience that future right now. This book is going to tell you how.As an example of the level of detail you can expect from this book, here’s a summary of the contents of Section 3.3 discussing Setting Up a New Google Account:3.1 Choosing a Strong Password3.2 Creating a New Google Account3.3 Securing Your Google Account3.3.1 Turn On Encryption for Your Account3.3.2 How Does “2-Step Verification Work”3.3.3 Set-Up “2-Step Verification”3.3.4 Generate and Print “Backup Codes”3.3.5 How Do You Use “Backup Codes”?3.3.6 Generate and Print “Application Specific Passwords”3.3.7 How Do You Use “Application Specific Passwords”?3.3.8 Revoking “Application Specific Passwords”3.3.9 Returning to Your Security Settings Page

Updated and Expanded in 2013 Cloud Computing Architected describes the essential components of a cloud-based application and presents the architectural options that are available to create large-scale, distributed applications spanning administrative domains. The requirements of cloud computing have far-reaching implications for software engineering. Applications must be built to provide flexible and elastic services, and designed to consume functionality delivered remotely across of spectrum of reliable, and unreliable, sources. Architects need to consider the impact of scalability and multi-tenancy in terms of: »New development tools »Internet-based delivery and mobile devices »Identity federation »Fragmented services and providers »Exploding information volume »Availability and elasticity techniques »New business models and monetization strategies »Revised software development cycle »Increased operational automation This book looks at these and other areas where the advent of cloud computing has the opportunity to influence the architecture of software applications.

Is your “big idea” worth pursuing? What if you could test your business model earlier in the process—before you’ve expended valuable time and resources? You’ve talked to customers. You’ve identified problems that need solving, and maybe even built a minimum viable product. But now there’s a second bridge to cross. How do you tell whether your idea represents a viable business? Do you really have to go through the whole cycle of development, failure, iteration, tweak, repeat? Scaling Lean offers an invaluable blueprint for modeling startup success. You’ll learn the essential metrics that measure the output of a working business model, give you the pulse of your company, communicate its health to investors, and enable you to make precise interventions when things go wrong. You’ll also learn how to: · ballpark the viability of a business model using a simple five-minute back-of-the-envelope estimation. · stop using current revenue as a measure of progress (it forces you to fly blind and, often, to overpromise to your shareholders) and instead embrace the metric of traction—which helps you identify the leading indicators for future business model growth. · set progressive goals that set you up for exponential long-term success by implementing a staged 10X rollout strategy, like one employed by Facebook and Tesla. · stop burying your breakthrough insights in failed experiments, but rather illuminate them using two-week LEAN sprints to quickly source, rank, and test ideas. Ash Maurya, a serial entrepreneur and author of the startup cult classic Running Lean, pairs real-world examples of startups like Airbnb and Hubspot with techniques from the manufacturing world in this tactical handbook for scaling with maximum efficiency and efficacy. This is vital reading for any startup founder graduating from the incubator stage.From the Hardcover edition.
