Lowest used price: $75.91
List price: $39.99
Author: William Penberthy

Prepare for Microsoft Exam 70-486—and help demonstrate your real-world mastery of developing ASP.NET MVC-based solutions. Designed for experienced developers ready to advance their status, Exam Ref focuses on the critical-thinking and decision-making acumen needed for success at the Microsoft Specialist level.

Focus on the expertise measured by these objectives:

  • Design the application architecture
  • Design the user experience
  • Develop the user experience
  • Troubleshoot and debug web applications
  • Design and implement security

This Microsoft Exam Ref:

  • Organizes its coverage by exam objectives.
  • Features strategic, what-if scenarios to challenge you.

Q&A with William Penberthy, author of "Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications"

Q. Why is “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications” an important book for people to read right now?

A. We are hitting a cycle where more and more applications, both web-based and traditional client-based, are being replaced as they hit the end of their lifespan. There is also an industry trend toward trying to provide users with a single, web-based application that supports many different viewing platforms; including desktop, tablet, and mobile. ASP.NET MVC 4 provides support for all of these different clients out of the box with a powerful, yet extremely easy-to-use, platform that allows for rapid development and easy testing. ASP.NET MVC 4 also supports client side-technologies such as jQuery and Knockout.js that help developers build rich and interactive user interfaces. This book is timely because it takes a higher-level look at implementing the technology in the context of common business problems. It is not a coding book, but more of a design and approach book that helps experienced developers predict and manage potential problems.

Q. What will readers walk away with after reading “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications?”

A. The 70-486 is not a traditional Microsoft test, so this book is not a traditional exam prep guide. First and foremost, this book is designed to help experienced developers be successful when taking the test. After that, the most important information in the book revolves around the “when” and “how” various aspects of ASP.NET MVC 4 can be implemented. The book may not tell you how to do everything in ASP.NET MVC 4, it instead acts as a guide to what can be done and when a particular approach makes sense when looking at the bigger picture. ASP.NET is almost frighteningly flexible and customizable, if you can think of something that may need to be done; there is more than likely a way to do it.

Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL

Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL Lowest new price: $44.78
Lowest used price: $40.31
List price: $57.95
Author: Dean Allemang
Brand: imusti

Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL, Second Edition, discusses the capabilities of Semantic Web modeling languages, such as RDFS (Resource Description Framework Schema) and OWL (Web Ontology Language). Organized into 16 chapters, the book provides examples to illustrate the use of Semantic Web technologies in solving common modeling problems. It uses the life and works of William Shakespeare to demonstrate some of the most basic capabilities of the Semantic Web. The book first provides an overview of the Semantic Web and aspects of the Web. It then discusses semantic modeling and how it can support the development from chaotic information gathering to one characterized by information sharing, cooperation, and collaboration. It also explains the use of RDF to implement the Semantic Web by allowing information to be distributed over the Web, along with the use of SPARQL to access RDF data. Moreover, the reader is introduced to components that make up a Semantic Web deployment and how they fit together, the concept of inferencing in the Semantic Web, and how RDFS differs from other schema languages. Finally, the book considers the use of SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System) to manage vocabularies by taking advantage of the inferencing structure of RDFS-Plus. This book is intended for the working ontologist who is trying to create a domain model on the Semantic Web.

  • Updated with the latest developments and advances in Semantic Web technologies for organizing, querying, and processing information, including SPARQL, RDF and RDFS, OWL 2.0, and SKOS
  • Detailed information on the ontologies used in today's key web applications, including ecommerce, social networking, data mining, using government data, and more
  • Even more illustrative examples and case studies that demonstrate what semantic technologies are and how they work together to solve real-world problems
