The DevOps Handbook:: How to Create World-Class Agility, Reliability, and Security in Technology Organizations

https://www.amazon.com/DevOps-Handbook-World-Class-Reliabili...
Increase profitability, elevate work culture, and exceed productivity goals through DevOps practices.More than ever, the effective management of technology is critical for business competitiveness. For decades, technology leaders have struggled to balance agility, reliability, and security. The consequences of failure have never been greater―whether it's the healthcare.gov debacle, cardholder data breaches, or missing the boat with Big Data in the cloud.And yet, high performers using DevOps principles, such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Etsy, and Netflix, are routinely and reliably deploying code into production hundreds, or even thousands, of times per day.Following in the footsteps of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook shows leaders how to replicate these incredible outcomes, by showing how to integrate Product Management, Development, QA, IT Operations, and Information Security to elevate your company and win in the marketplace.

Cryptocurrency - A Trader's Handbook: A Complete Guide On How To Trade Bitcoin And Altcoins

https://www.amazon.com/Cryptocurrency-Traders-Handbook-Compl...
December 2017 has shown that Cryptocurrencies have the potential to split the society into two groups - the one which believes in this technology and the other one which calls it a bubble. Which side is right? Are there any indicators that might prove the one or the other?Cryptocurrencies are the largest wealth redistribution in history, that is just starting to gain attention. People are still confused what blockchain is, and very few understand the potential it has. Isn’t this the perfect time to learn more about it?This book is divided into two parts. The first will teach you everything about Cryptocurrencies and how they work. Contrary to many other books on the market, we focus on practical implications of the economy as well. The second part offers you a comprehensive investment section. This is not another guide that pushes trading strategies from stocks into Cryptocurrencies. We are investors ourselves, and we have seen everything cryptosphere has to offer. We focus on Technical Analysis, Fundamental Analysis, Portfolio Management and Investment Strategies, but from the perspective of the volatile market.It does not matter if you are entirely new to Cryptocurrencies or if you already have some knowledge on this topic. We aim to provide an easy entry for anybody by sharing our experience in the most practical way possible. This book will not only show you how to find the next potential Bitcoin or Ethereum but also how to fight-off greed that is associated with it.So, the question is, are you watching from the sidelines or are you participating in the revolution?

An Altcoin Trader's Handbook

https://www.amazon.com/Altcoin-Traders-Handbook-Nik-Patel-eb...
The exponential growth of the cryptosphere over the previous half-decade has brought with it a plethora of life-changing speculative opportunities. Where traditional financial markets seem inaccessible and ineffectual due to the prevalence of high fees and low returns, the emergence of a worldwide market of decentralised alternatives to Bitcoin allows for those unable (or unwilling) to navigate the often-slippery world of hedge funds and investment banks the chance to realise financial freedom. This, of course, is no effortless journey, and this book does not profess to be a get-rich-quick scheme of any sort. Instead, An Altcoin Trader’s Handbook merges almost five years of tragicomic yet insightful anecdotes on the ever-evolving nature of the cryptosphere with a comprehensive strategy for profitable altcoin speculation. The book focuses on maximising the upside potential of capital whilst diminishing downside risks, both of which are possible with speculation on so-called ‘microcap’ and ‘lowcap’ altcoins, given the application of proper risk management. Above all, the reader will learn, in exhaustive detail, the three-stage process of research, accumulation and distribution that has been the bedrock of my own success in the space. The journey will be intensive – often arduous – but will, with some good fortune, result in an individual most well-equipped to capitalise on the greatest glut of financial opportunity the world has ever seen.

The Simple Living Handbook: Discover the Joy of a De-Cluttered Life

https://www.amazon.com/Simple-Living-Handbook-Discover-Clutt...
Where did all this stuff come from? I don’t have time for a life. I need to get away! Ever feel this way? Society is quick to fill our minds and homes with all the latest gadgets, tools, obligations, and entertainment, but what happens when it all doesn’t fit? The Simple Living Handbook is a how-to memoir about creating a life that has space for what really matters to you.Lippincott’s road to simplicity started in the fall of 2010 when she was on the verge of a breakdown. Her life was basically “normal”—husband, two kids, comfortable home, three home businesses—but she felt like she was running a rat race. She was desperate for more time and space to focus on family, health, and her own interests. So she and her husband decided to cut back on clutter—drastically. Now the family of four lives in a one-bedroom apartment with only the possessions they actually need and use; they stick to a simple diet of only whole foods “that God would recognize”; and they have managed to become productive without feeling busy. They’ve never been happier or healthier.Through personal stories, advice, and tips, Lippincott teaches how to make the hard decisions necessary to simplify your home and your schedule. Beyond that, she addresses the hidden emotional hoarding that threatens to keep our souls running in circles. Through her inspiring story, readers will learn to take a step back, reassess priorities, and commit to making space for those people and things that really matter.

The Little Seagull Handbook (Third Edition)

https://www.amazon.com/Little-Seagull-Handbook-Third-ebook/d...
The pocket-sized handbook that does the work of a full-sized handbook, now with a new section on editing the errors that matter.Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument), but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks. The third edition adds a new section on editing the errors that matter—and the option to include free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors.Please note that this version of the ebook does not include access to any media or print supplements that are sold packaged with the printed book.
