The Art of Computer Programming, Volumes 1-4A Boxed Set 1st Edition

410vJZbAZGS. SY393 BO1,204,203,200

William P RossTop Contributor: Architecture
5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece of Programming Knowledge
Reviewed in the United States on February 9, 2016
Verified Purchase
I read this book cover to cover which took me over 3 months, and I was extremely impressed with this collection. Knuth turns computer programming into an art form as the title suggests.

There is a lot of history which Knuth makes interesting by stating which algorithms were remarkable discoveries and which were logical extensions of other algorithms. The analysis is much more in depth than other authors especially with regards to run time performance.

At the end of each section there are tons of problems to solve, and full answers are in the back. I especially liked how each problem has a rating on its difficulty. For example, a problem with a rating 10 is easy, rating 25 might take an hour... up to rating 50 which is an unsolved problem in computer science.

Volume one starts with the first 150 pages being math related to computer science. Then the assembly language is introduced which many of the algorithms are written in. The choice for assembly was made so as to not commit to one specific language's paradigm.

Volume two gets into the heart of the algorithms. A lot of interesting things about floating point calculations, and prime number discovery. My overall understanding of computer science improved a ton here.

Volume three was my personal favorite. Knuth explains searching and sorting very well. The evolution of the "trie" data structure was impressive. At first he shows a way to make a trie in a way I had never seen before. Then he showed another way, and finally he got to the modern way I had seen. With this knowledge, I understood how the trie was discovered, how it was improved, and then improved again. Every other algorithm book just shows the modern trie without explaining how they got there.

Volume four is heavy on math again with a lot about permutations and combinatorics. This was the most difficult of the books I felt but also rewarding.

Knuth's writing is excellent. Each sentence is clear and communicates in a way that makes computer history interesting.

The box set itself is beautiful and the paper is high quality. I wish I could give more than 5 stars for the review.

Test-Driven Development with Python: Obey the Testing Goat: Using Django, Selenium, and JavaScript

51K8lEqa9SL. SX379 BO1,204,203,200

May be available at a lower price from other sellers, potentially without free Prime shipping.
By taking you through the development of a real web application from beginning to end, the second edition of this hands-on guide demonstrates the practical advantages of test-driven development (TDD) with Python. You’ll learn how to write and run tests before building each part of your app, and then develop the minimum amount of code required to pass those tests. The result? Clean code that works.

In the process, you’ll learn the basics of Django, Selenium, Git, jQuery, and Mock, along with current web development techniques. If you’re ready to take your Python skills to the next level, this book—updated for Python 3.6—clearly demonstrates how TDD encourages simple designs and inspires confidence.

- Dive into the TDD workflow, including the unit test/code - - cycle and refactoring
- Use unit tests for classes and functions, and functional tests for user interactions within the browser
- Learn when and how to use mock objects, and the pros and cons of isolated vs. integrated tests
- Test and automate your deployments with a staging server
- Apply tests to the third-party plugins you integrate into your site
