Flex 4 5 pour mobiles
Aujourd'hui le monde des développeurs connait une mutation en profondeur avec le développement d'applications destinées à des terminaux mobiles (smartphones, tablettes...). Les attentes en termes d'interfaces utilisateurs n'ont jamais été aussi fortes que ce soit pour une application de type réseau social ou pour une application bancaire. Cet ouvrage explique les points-clés et les spécificités de ce type de projet en suivant un exemple réel (une application sur une base de données dans l'univers du cinéma). Le contenu permet des applications pour des matériels fonctionnant avec les systèmes d'exploitation d'Apple (iOS) ou de Google (Android) ou encore de BlackBerry (Tablet OS). Il vous guide dans l'apprentissage du framework Flex d'Adobe qui propose de bâtir des applis multiplateformes grâce à un modèle unifié de programmation, d'environnement de développement et de base de code.

Chock full of examples, this easy-to-follow, hands-on tutorial goes beyond feature coverage and helps readers put Flex to work in real day-to-day tasks.
"This volume, likely to become a standard reference work, describes an extraordinary number of approaches to the representation of musical information for purposes of computer processing. It is a considerable achievement, for it sorts and orders work in a confusing and sometimes embattled field, analyzing each encoding method in logical sequence and in light of the specific purposes for which it was designed." -- Raymond Erickson, Dean of Arts and Humanities, Queens College, CUNY; author of "DARMS: A Reference Manual" The establishment of the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) in the late 1980s allowed hobbyists and musicians to experiment with sound control in ways that previously had been possible only in research studios. MIDI is now the most prevalent representation of music, but what it represents is based on hardware control protocols for sound synthesis. Programs that support sound input for graphics output necessarily span a gamut of representational categories. What is most likely to be lost is any sense of the musical work. Thus, for those involved in pedagogy, analysis, simulation, notation, and music theory, the nature of the representation matters a great deal. An understanding of the data requirements of different applications is fundamental to the creation of interchange codes. The contributors to "Beyond MIDI" present a broad range of schemes, illustrating a wide variety of approaches to music representation. Generally, each chapter describes the history and intended purposes of the code, a description of the representation of the primary attributes of music (pitch, duration, articulation, ornamentation, dynamics, andtimbre), a description of the file organization, some mention of existing data in the format, resources for further information, and at least one encoded example. The book also shows how intended applications influence the kinds of musical information that are encoded. Contributors: David Bainbridge, Ulf Berggren, Roger D.

At the crossroads of philosophy and science, the sometimes-dry topics of evolution and ecology come alive in this new collection of essays--many never before anthologized. Learn how technology may be a sort of second nature, how the systemic human fungus Candida albicans can lead to cravings for carrot cake and beer, how the presence of life may be why there's water on Earth, and many other fascinating facts. The essay "Metametazoa" presents perspectives on biology in a philosophical context, demonstrating how the intellectual librarian, pornographer, and political agitator Georges Bataille was influenced by Russian mineralogist Vladimir Vernadsky and how this led to his notion of the absence of meaning in the face of the sun--which later influenced Jacques Derrida, thereby establishing a causal chain of influence from the hard sciences to topics as abstract as deconstruction and post-modernism. In "Spirochetes Awake" the bizarre connection between syphilis and genius in the life of Friedrich Nietzsche is traced. The astonishing similarities of the Acquired-Immune-Deficiency-Syndrome symptoms with those of chronic spirochete infection, it is argued, contrast sharply with the lack of evidence that "HIV is the cause of AIDS". Throughout these readings we are dazzled by the intimacy and necessity of relationships between us and our other planetmates. In our ignorance as "civilized" people we dismiss, disdain, and deny our kinship with the only productive life forms that sustain this living planet.
