REST is a hybrid style derived from several of the network-based architectural styles and combined with additional constraints that define a uniform connector interface.

The design rationale behind the Web architecture can be described by an architectural style consisting of the set of constraints applied to elements within the architecture. By examining the impact of each constraint as it is added to the evolving style, we can identify the properties induced by the Web’s constraints. Additional constraints can then be applied to form a new architectural style that better reflects the desired properties of a modern Web architecture. This book provides a general overview of REST by walking through the various architectural elements.

In the early days of the 20th century, department store magnate John Wanamaker famously said, "I know that half of my advertising doesn't work. The problem is that I don't know which half." That remained basically true until Google transformed advertising with AdSense based on new uses of data and analysis. The same might be said about healthcare and it's poised to go through a similar transformation as new tools, techniques, and data sources come on line. Soon we'll make policy and resource decisions based on much better understanding of what leads to the best outcomes, and we'll make medical decisions based on a patient's specific biology. The result will be better health at less cost.

"OK. I’ve got my Twitter account…now what can I do with it?" Sound familiar? #tweetsmart provides the answer with 25 creative projects to help your business, cause, or organization grow. But this isn’t just another social media marketing book—it’s the anti-marketing how-to community-engagement book.

Meeting and getting to know these people can help you build your own community.

  • Put a new wrinkle on an old contest: "be the 10th person to tweet"
  • Create a hashtag game around your company or products
  • Instead of polling, ask your followers to help you make a product decision
  • Make MadLibs out of your marketing copy or mission statement
  • Hold a scavenger hunt, and relay clues via Twitter
  • Organize a weekly Twitter chat on various subjects
  • Solicit funny product shots, using Twitter’s photo-sharing utility
  • Spontaneously tweet from a store location: "Meet me now and win!"

His passion is to play with technologies like Adobe’s AIR and the Android platform, and he loves to translate complex abstract ideas into concrete usable applications.

He started programming in Turbo Pascal and Delphi, and tried PHP, but later found his true love—Flash. Now Sidney is a Flash Platform developer with more than 10 years of experience in ActionScript (1, 2, and 3), AIR, and lately also Android. And a little iOS.

After setting up the online department at the Dutch MTV in 2005, he freelanced and worked for smaller companies until 2009. He has worked for and with a multitude of companies including MTV, TMF, Nickelodeon, Media Catalyst, and Code d’Azur. His current employment is at LBi Lost Boys in Amsterdam, where he develops in AS3, solves technical problems, and acts as technical lead. His specialties are streamlining development processes, AIR, and AIR for Android. In his spare time, he has written content for the Dutch Adobe User Group and taught programming classes at the international SAE College.

From writing articles on blogs to writing magazines and a book, and from teaching students programming to coding and talking about code, it all has to do with transferring knowledge and inspiring people who share the same passion: creation.

He likes to keep sane by meditating, reading, writing, and running. He also maintains a weblog about AIR, mobile, and Flash development at http://www.funky-monkey.nl.

What really sets the iPhone apart from laptops and PCs is its use of onboard sensors, including those that are location-enabled. This concise book takes experienced iPhone and Mac developers on a detailed tour of iPhone and iPad hardware by explaining how these sensors work, and what they're capable of doing.

With this book, you'll build sample applications for each sensor, and learn hands-on how to take advantage of the data each sensor produces. You'll gain valuable experience that you can immediately put to work inside your own iOS applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

This book helps you focus on:
  • Camera: learn how to take pictures and video, create video thumbnails, customize video, and save media to the photo album
  • Audio: use the media picker controller and access the iPod music library in your own application, and enable your app to record and play sampled audio
  • Accelerometer: write an application that uses this sensor to determine device orientation
  • Magnetometer: learn how this sensor verifies compass headings
  • Core Motion: use this framework to receive motion data from both the accelerometer and the vibrational gyroscope
This short book is part of a collection that will, along with new material, be compiled into a larger book, iOS Sensor Programming. The other books in this collection are Augmented Reality in iOS, Geolocation in iOS, and iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino.
