Pre-Order (3-4 weeks)
If you’re a web developer or designer ready to learn Ruby on Rails, this unique book is the ideal way to start. Rather than throw you into the middle of the framework’s Model-View-Controller architecture, Learning Rails 5 works from the outside in. You’ll begin with the foundations of the Web you already know, and learn how to create something visible with Rails’ view layer. Then you’ll tackle the more difficult inner layers: the database models and controller code. All you need to get started is HTML experience. Each chapter includes exercises and review questions to test your understanding as you go.
About the Author
UX Style Frameworks is a practical guide for the hands-on creation of a Style Framework. This new and collaborative documentation format combines different departments’ standards and style guides into a single, unified, and accessible source for all employees. Marti Gold defines Style Frameworks for web and user experience designers, showing what and how much information goes into a style framework. As UX designers and creative directors are charged with ensuring a business’s web and mobile output are in line with branding standards, the unification of style guides, code libraries, and pattern libraries is an important aspect to dissolving “design siloes” and creating a unified brand. Each section in the book will identify the current pain points and common internal practices that result in standards documents being ignored and eventually becoming obsolete. UX Style Frameworks provides solutions on creating Style Frameworks that evolve to keep standards current, ultimately resulting in more cohesive brand and product designs. Key features: * Offers a fully functional companion website with a complete Style Framework, showing all examples featured in the book and available for download so that users can start their own Style Framework. * Each section includes information about addressing company politics and policies to help readers navigate those murky waters to ensure buy-in and establishment of Style Frameworks. * Includes case studies that showcase success stories where Style Frameworks were implemented and not-so-successful stories where Style Frameworks were needed, giving readers examples of different ways Style Frameworks can be incorporated into existing workflows.

This book walks readers through the process of crafting a Wargame in PHP utilizing the Codelgniter application framework. Exploring both application development issues and game design development issues, the readers will work through database and code system design in order to craft a functioning turn-based wargame. The wargame project serves as an exciting context for PHP programmers looking to gain in depth application coding experience. Those with an interest in game development will learn the code skills to support design decisions as they create the game project. The book assumes at least a beginning level of PHP coding; however, no previous Codelgniter or game development experience is required. It includes complete source code for a game project. The complete source code – models, controllers and views, for the game at the center of the book is included and can be adapted and modified by the user. It contains the full database design (SQL) for game data structures. The design gives non-database programmers all the tools to move forward and a starting point for experienced SQL developers to add more depth to unit and map data structures. It shows a flexible game map system. This system can be the foundation upon which readers can move forward with their own game projects, be they a different form of hex-based wargame or other map-based game project. It includes a complete overview of a simple CRUD system. The model-controller-view CRUD system can easily be expanded and modified to tackle any “single table at a time” database manipulation problem.
