Discover what tools there are for unit testing in iOS, and how to work in a test-driven environment. This book reveals how testing is a crucial capability in any iOS developer's toolset, and a minimum requirement in iOS interviews.A few years ago, tests on mobile platforms were not very popular. It wasn't a technical constraint, more a cultural one. But these days it's a crucial skill set, especially when projects become big and hard to maintain. This book shows you how to set up a testing target in XCode unit tests. You'll learn how to write unit tests properly and incorporate concepts like spies and mocks and code coverage. You'll also learn the philosophy behind the architecture of UI tests, and how to mock network and DB layers in testing. Write unbreakable UI tests performance tests, as well. And learn the difference between integration tests and snapshot testing.This book will show you how to maintain code that's not only bug-free but will also remain high quality over time and maintainable while you make changes and refactors during an app's life. Testing in all its aspects is the best way of maintaining iOS projects to run fast and reliably long after you've released them. Many iOS developers working today lack an understanding of the advantages of testing, and might be unfamiliar with tools that make the job easier, such as XCTest framework. With Pro iOS Testing you'll see how to develop and test apps that work and stay working for a long time. What You'll LearnSet up a stable testing systemExtend an app's lifetime with testing before releaseIncorporate testing into your everyday development routineWrite unbreakable UI tests performance testsUnderstand the difference between integration tests and snapshot testingWho This Book Is ForProfessional iOS developers with extensive experience in the basics of building apps.

Physical Modelling of Flow and Diffusion in Urb...

Dispersion of pollutants in urban areas is still challenging task in environmental sciences. Complex processes like the dispersion of accidental releases of harmful gas in built-up areas are not yet fully understood. For a better understanding of the phenomena it is helpful to study flow and dispersion within an idealised setting first. An example of a simplified setup at full scale is the Mock Urban Setting Test - MUST. In order to extend the field data set as well as to enhance the representativeness of the MUST field data a complementing study in a boundary layer wind tunnel was carried out. During an extensive measurement campaign in the wind tunnel firstly flow field, including turbulent characteristics, was studied for different wind directions. The second step was replication of field dispersion experiments. Travelling time of the pollutant was estimated by three different methods: (i) spatial concentration correlations function, (ii) the time delay of a sudden released tracer at a detector position, (iii) the time based on the measured wind speed along the tracer trajectory. All three methods showed comparable results.

Draping Period Costumes: Classical Greek to Vic...
40,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One way of creating a theatrical costume is called flat patterning. This is when a costume designer uses a pattern made to the wearer's measurements to cut out and sew together a costume. In many cases flat patterning is the more appropriate method for creating a period costume - skirts, pants, and sleeves, for example. However, working in two-dimensions often does not translate correctly onto a three-dimensional dress form or person. Often a designer will need to tweak style lines on a garment once they see it worn, or a costume will need a quick adjustment right before going on stage. In those cases, designers need to know how to correctly drape a costume. Draping is also the best way to construct a period costume right from the start. The construction of garments in earlier centuries often constricted movement, especially in the area of the armhole. The very different size and proportions of contemporary people compared to those in previous centuries makes the use of period patterns difficult. A well-draped garment can give the impression of period accuracy while permitting the wearer greater freedom of movement. Having a mock-up pinned to the form in its early stages is quicker and easier to adapt than drafting a flat pattern, cutting it out of muslin and sewing it. It also provides the opportunity for greater creativity and adaptation as well as a better understanding of what fabric will and won't do.In Draping Period Costumes, Sharon Sobel explains in step-by-step detail the basics of draping and demonstrates the use of those basic skills in the creation of a representative selection of period costumes from a variety of time periods. Chapters are broken into time periods and have two parts: an analysis of how clothing was made and worn during that specific time period, and detailed instruction on draping techniques to construct the costume. Copiously illustrated, images allow this visual audience to easily follow along with detailed instructions.A part of the Costume Topics series, this book will be 256 pages, a snazzy 8.25 x 7.5 trim size, and spiral bound-a format consistently requested by our audience so that they can lay the book flat while working from it.

Reforming French Culture
69,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Reforming French Culture is a ground-breaking work on the literary genre of Reformation satire-colloquial, obscene, scatological-designed to mock the excesses as well as the essence of the Roman Catholic rite and hierarchy. Enticingly, Hoffmann proposes that while romance, with its episodic, heroic narrative, is the literary genre of Counter-Reformation, satire is the genre of Reformation. This minor category of Renaissance French literature is an unstudied continent that plays a key role, not only in French literature, but also in French history, and in the evolution of French culture more generally. From this deceptively small focus, the volume opens up huge vistas: on the Reformation, on French history, and on the symbiosis of spirituality and estrangement to which it views modern French culture as heir. Rather than using literature to illustrate history, or contextualizing literature through historical background, this book brings literary understanding (what satire is and what it does) to bear on historical understanding. Situated at the crossroads of religion, literature, and cultural history, it explores how France, in this period, became a culturally Protestant country while remaining confessionally Catholic.
