Mathematica Data Visualization by Nazmus Saquib, Packt Publishing Book Review
I love data, math, stats and I love to visualize information. But Mathematica has always been, and remains the forbidden fruit to me (due to its cost). Therefore I was very glad to agree on an opportunity to review Mathematica Data Visualization. The book stood to its promise. I liked every page of it. The is book is packed with insightful examples to producing all (or most) the most common graphs and charts a data scientist may need in ones professional life. What I actually initially expected is ......

Kali Linux Network Scanning Cookbook by Justin Hutchens, Packt Publishing Book Review
With the advent of the constantly connected computers (not only the Internet) the attack surface has increased immensely. At the same time the user machines became as powerful as the servers were. However, there was very little done to educate computer professionals to detect, prevent and cope intrusions or penetration attacks. Kali Linux Network Scanning Cookbook can serve very well as one to close the gap. A little on Kali Linux: it is a specialized distribution for penetration testing and forensics ......

Learning Java 8 By Mike Kelly, O'Reilly Media Video Review

PostgreSQL: Up and Running by Regina Obe, O'Reilly Media Book Review
Like I have already mentioned in my previous blog post databases are lately in the spotlight, left and right. This was the primary reason for me to choose yet another book on databases for review*. I know that NoSQL data stores are more trendy for now, but the traditional RDBMS' would not give its sheer install base out quite easily like that yet to them. The secondary reason was, while I am a full time in SQL Server, I suspected I may be missing something by not getting familiar with what most IT ......

Mastering DynamoDB by Tanmay Deshpande, Packt Publishing Book Review
Databases are very much in the spotlight lately and especially the NoSQL breed. While there are dozens of offerings on the market only a handful tops the list, one such offspring in the key-value area is Amazon's DynamoDB. Being a close relative to such popular players on this arena as Redis or Voldemort DynamoDB I figured has many unique points, add-ons and a strong backing by the user community, not only the mighty Amazon corporation. Mastering DynamoDB as a book came out at a very strategic time.It ......
