Few books on software project management have been as influential and timeless as The Mythical Man-Month. With a blend of software engineering facts and thought-provoking opinions, Fred Brooks offers insight for anyone managing complex projects. These essays draw from his experience as project manager for the IBM System/360 computer family and then for OS/360, its massive software system. Now, 20 years after the initial publication of his book, Brooks has revisited his original ideas and added new thoughts and advice, both for readers already familiar with his work and for readers discovering it for the first time. The added chapters contain (1) a crisp condensation of all the propositions asserted in the original book, including Brooks' central argument in The Mythical Man-Month: that large programming projects suffer management problems different from small ones due to the division of labor; that the conceptual integrity of the product is therefore critical; and that it is difficult but possible to achieve this unity; (2) Brooks' view of these propositions a generation later; (3) a reprint of his classic 1986 paper "No Silver Bullet"; and (4) today's thoughts on the 1986 assertion, "There will be no silver bullet within ten years."

How to Install a Data Network in your Office: Installation, Connecting, Cabling, Cat5e, Cat6 (1 Book 3)
Installing a data network in your office is the optimal way to work - you're optimizing your broadband speed to the maximum. Plus you're giving yourself options to create pods of desks in one area, and by simply re-patching you can move your workers around, move printers and even run your phone system over the network too. It's the most flexible way to work. Many offices rely on Wi-Fi which is roughly 50% slower than hard-wired networks! Thick walls, ceilings and metal can all have a detrimental effect on Internet speed. It can actually be a LOT slower depending on your office architecture. So that's where hard-wiring will triumph every single time. Data networks allow total freedom of office configuration at ANY time. Cabling in offices can be very tricky due to neatness being of high important plus the location of the network patch panel and equipment can make all the difference between a very hard job and a relatively easy job.Along with lots of informative PICTURES - I wanted to give you all the information to cable your own network. I'm going to cover: 1. Introduction to Installation2. Hard-Wired vs Wi-Fi3. Equipment Needed4. Where to site the Patch Panel Equipment5. Cabling6. Moving the Router7. Connecting the Sockets8. Patch Panel or RJ45 Plugs9. Patch Panel Cabinet or Wall Mounted10. Scanning11. PatchingI include tips for how to cable through thick walls, reccomend the best equipment, and guide you with lots of pictures what the end result should look like. I’m going to throw the guff and tech-talk out the window – it’ll be an easy to follow guide with no nonsense. Let’s get networking!

The rules and practices for Scrum—a simple process for managing complex projects—are few, straightforward, and easy to learn. But Scrum’s simplicity itself—its lack of prescription—can be disarming, and new practitioners often find themselves reverting to old project management habits and tools and yielding lesser results. In this illuminating series of case studies, Scrum co-creator and evangelist Ken Schwaber identifies the real-world lessons—the successes and failures—culled from his years of experience coaching companies in agile project management. Through them, you’ll understand how to use Scrum to solve complex problems and drive better results—delivering more valuable software faster. Gain the foundation in Scrum theory—and practice—you need to:
- Rein in even the most complex, unwieldy projects
- Effectively manage unknown or changing product requirements
- Simplify the chain of command with self-managing development teams
- Receive clearer specifications—and feedback—from customers
- Greatly reduce project planning time and required tools
- Build—and release—products in 30-day cycles so clients get deliverables earlier
- Avoid missteps by regularly inspecting, reporting on, and fine-tuning projects
- Support multiple teams working on a large-scale project from many geographic locations
- Maximize return on investment!

This practical guide shows you how Kubernetes and container technology can help you achieve new levels of velocity, agility, reliability, and efficiency.Authors Kelsey Hightower, Brendan Burns, and Joe Beda—who’ve worked on Kubernetes at Google and other organizatons—explain how this system fits into the lifecycle of a distributed application. You will learn how to use tools and APIs to automate scalable distributed systems, whether it is for online services, machine-learning applications, or a cluster of Raspberry Pi computers.
- Explore the distributed system challenges that Kubernetes addresses
- Dive into containerized application development, using containers such as Docker
- Create and run containers on Kubernetes, using the docker image format and container runtime
