            Microservices architecture (MSA) is increasingly popular with software architects and engineers as it accelerates software solution design, development, and deployment in a risk-free manner. Placing a software system into a production environment is elegantly simplified and sped ...up with the use of MSA development platforms, runtime environments, acceleration engines, design patterns, integrated frameworks, and related tools. The MSA ecosystem is expanding with third-party products that automate as many tasks as possible. MSA is being positioned as the enterprise-grade and agile-application design method. This book covers in-depth the features and facilities that make up the MSA ecosystem. Beginning with an overview of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) that covers the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM), and Remote Method Invocation (RMI), the book explains the basic essentials of MSA and the continuous delivery of applications to customers. The book gives software developers insight into: Current and emerging communication models Key architectural elements of MSA-based applications Designing efficient APIs for microservices MSA middleware platforms such as REST, SOAP, Apache Thrift, and gRPC Microservice discovery and the API gateway Service orchestration and choreography for composing individual services to achieve a useful business process Database transactions in MSA-centric applications Design, composition, security, and deployment patterns MSA security Modernizing legacy applications The book concludes with a chapter on composing and building powerful microservices. With the exponential growth of IoT devices, microservices are being developed and deployed on resource-constrained but resource-intensive devices in order to provide people-centric applications. The book discusses the challenges of these applications. Finally, the book looks at the role of microservices in smart environments and upcoming tre

            Twenty-first century sociologists have analyzed goth as a Hebdigean 'spectacular subculture' whose practices enact a form of symbolic resistance. Such studies, however, tend to neglect the hybridity of goth music and its centrality to the goth experience. This book argues that go...th music must be recognized not only as diverse and persisting, but as fundamentally constitutive of the goth experience. The authors investigate goth music as characterized by specific thematic and musical qualities that produce affective responses in fans and listeners. They argue that these responses give rise to goth musical 'chronotopes,' spectro-acoustic timespaces that are driven by the fantasies and desires of what Christopher Small refers to as the musicking subject. These chronotopes, which range from fantasy and science fiction to steampunk and horror, constitute a decentering of subjectivity as well as a disruption of the presentness of the present. Identifying the compositional strategies that characterize goth music and charting the musical and non-musical actors involved in its production, this book is the first academic study that thoroughly analyzes the ways in which such musical qualities structure goth desires, imaginaries, and fantasies.

            Google's Programmable Search Engines (PSEs, previously called Custom Search Engines) provide search opportunities that are unavailable with any other tool. PSEs have advanced settings and search operators that are not supported by regular Google. With PSEs, it is possible to perf...orm filtered searches within parts of the web as if they were databases! While lots of professionals use existing PSEs to source for talent or with other research goals, few people have experience creating them. Even fewer know about powerful PSE-only search operators. The main reason PSEs are not as popular as they should is that it is not easy to get educated on PSE creation. There is little information online and no books (other than this one). Even less info is available on the structured operators that allow for filtered search. The first of its kind, this book hopes to popularize these fun and powerful tools so that many more people include PSEs their work. Key Features: A detailed intro on creating PSEs, including info absent in Google's help A hack on creating PSEs that look for profiles in seconds Introduction to advanced PSE-only search operators allowing to perform filtered searches of parts of the web A hack on expanding Google's search limits to 500 terms Use cases, examples, and approaches that would be educational for those doing online research. The book is going to be interesting for researchers, OSINT specialists, investigative journalists, Competitive Intelligence people, recruiters, and sourcers, to name a few categories, and to the general public interested in how to search better.

            IoT is empowered by various technologies used to detect, gather, store, act, process, transmit, oversee, and examine information. The combination of emergent technologies for information processing and distributed security, such as Cloud computing, Artificial intelligence, and Bl...ockchain, brings new challenges in addressing distributed security methods that form the foundation of improved and eventually entirely new products and services. As systems interact with each other, it is essential to have an agreed interoperability standard, which is safe and valid. This book aims at providing an introduction by illustrating state-of-the-art security challenges and threats in IoT and the latest developments in IoT with Cloud, AI, and Blockchain security challenges. Various application case studies from domains such as science, engineering, and healthcare are introduced, along with their architecture and how they leverage various technologies Cloud, AI, and Blockchain. This book provides a comprehensive guide to researchers and students to design IoT integrated AI, Cloud, and Blockchain projects and to have an overview of the next generation challenges that may arise in the coming years.

            Is goth music a genre, and if so, how does it relate to the goth subculture? The music played at goth club nights and festivals encompasses a broad range of musical substyles, from gloomy Batcave reverberations to neo-medieval bagpipe drones and from the lush vocals of goth metal... to the harsh distortion of goth industrial. Goth Music: From Sound to Subculture argues that within this variegated musical landscape a number of key consistencies exist. Not only do all these goth substyles share a number of musical and textual characteristics, but more importantly these aspects of the music are constitutive of goth social reality. Drawing on their own experiences in the European and American goth scenes, the authors explore the ways in which the sounds of goth inform the scene's listening practices, its fantasies of other worlds, and its re-enchantment of their own world. Goth music, this book asserts, engenders a musical timespace of its own, a musical chronotope that is driven by nostalgic yearning. Goth Music: From Sound to Subculture reorients goth subcultural studies onto music: goth music must be recognized not only as simultaneously diverse and consistent, but also as the glue that holds together goth scenes from all over the world. It all starts with the music.
