Three hilarious novels of heart, humour and wishes gone wrong, from the new star of childrenâe(tm)s books - by award-winning and bestselling author, David Baddiel. Illustrated by Jim Field - winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. THE PARENT AGENCY: Barry said, a third time, âeoeI wish I had better parents!âe And then suddenly the entire room started to shakeâe¦ Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact itâe(tm)s number 2 on the list of things he blames his parents for, along with 1) âe~being boringâe(tm) and 3) âe~always being tiredâe(tm). But there is a world, not far from this one, where parents donâe(tm)t have children. Thatâe(tm)s far too random for something so big and important. In this world, children are allowed to choose their parents. For Barry Bennett, this world seems like a dream come true. Only things turn out to be not quite that simpleâe¦ THE PERSON CONTROLLER: Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical (because that's impossible for a boy and a girl). They do like all the same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very good at. They aren't that good, however, at much else âe" like, for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies. Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, which doesn't look like any other controller they've ever seen. And it doesn't control any of their usual games. When the twins find out what it does control, though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like thatâe¦ ANIMALCOLM: Malcolm doesnâe(tm)t like animals. Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year 6 school trip, until Malcolm realizes itâe(tm)s heading toâe¦oh no. The farm. Over the next days, Malcolm changes. He learns a lot about animals. More, in many ways, than he would like. He learns what itâe(tm)s really like to be an animalâe¦ It does make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat differently. But will he end up the same as he was before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become isâe¦ yourself.

The ASP.NET MVC 5 Framework is the latest evolution of Microsoft’s ASP.NET web platform. It provides a high-productivity programming model that promotes cleaner code architecture, test-driven development, and powerful extensibility, combined with all the benefits of ASP.NET. ASP.NET MVC 5 contains a number of advances over previous versions, including the ability to define routes using C# attributes and the ability to override filters. The user experience of building MVC applications has also been substantially improved. The new, more tightly integrated, Visual Studio 2013 IDE has been created specifically with MVC application development in mind and provides a full suite of tools to improve development times and assist in reporting, debugging and deploying your code. The popular Bootstrap JavaScript library has also now been included natively within MVC 5 providing you, the developer, with a wider range of multi-platform CSS and HTML5 options than ever before without the penalty of having to load-in third party libraries.

The "M·CORE" family of microprocessors is the latest 32-bit integrated circuit from Motorola designed to be a multi-purpose "micro-controller." The processor architecture has been designed for high performance and cost-sensitive embedded control applications with particular emphasis on reduced power consumption. This is the first book on the programming of the new language instruction set using the M·CORE chip. Embedded Microcontroller Interfacing for M·CORE Systems is the third of a trio of books by G. Jack Lipovski from the University of Texas. The first two books are on assembly language programming for the new Motorola 6812 16-bit microcontroller, and were written to be textbooks and professional references. This book was written at the request of the Motorola design team for the professional users of its new and very successful M·CORE chip microcontrollers. Written with the complete cooperation and input of the M·CORE design engineers at their headquarters in Austin, Texas, this book covers all aspects of the programming software and hardware of the M·CORE chip. * First introductory level book on the Motorola MoCORE * Teaches engineers how a computer executes instructions * Shows how a high-level programming language converts to assembler language * Teaches the reader how a microcontroller is interfaced to the outside world * Hundreds of examples are used throughout the text * Over 200 homework problems give the reader in-depth practice * A CD-ROM with HIWARE's C++ compiler is included with the book * A complete summary chapter on other available microcontrollers

Developing C# Applications for iPhone and iPad using MonoTouch shows you how to use your existing C# skills to write apps for the iPhone and iPad. Fortunately, there's MonoTouch, Novell's .NET library that allows C# developers to write C# code that executes in iOS. Furthermore, MonoTouch allows you to address all the unique functions of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. And the big plus: You needn't learn any Objective-C to master MonoTouch! Former Microsoft engineer and published app-store developer Bryan Costanich shows you how to use the tools you already know to create native apps in iOS using C# and the .NET Base Class Libraries. The magic is in Novell's implementation of Apple's Cocoa libraries in MonoTouch. You'll master the same elegant and rich Cocoa environment, but without the need to learn a new programming language. Developing C# Applications for iPhone and iPad using MonoTouch takes you from your first "Hello, World" example through the major APIs and features of iOS. The coverage is comprehensive and makes use of frequent examples, complete with sample code you can download and reuse to create your own powerful and playful apps.

The Cocoa frameworks are some of the most powerful frameworks for creating native desktop applications available on any platform today, and Apple gives them away, along with the Xcode development environment, for free! However, for a first-time Mac developer, just firing up Xcode and starting to browse the documentation can be a daunting task. The Objective-C class reference documentation alone would fill thousands of printed pages, not to mention all the other tutorials and guides included with Xcode. Where do you start? Which classes are you going to need to use? How do you use Xcode and the rest of the tools? This book answers these questions and more, helping you find your way through the jungle of classes, tools, and new concepts so that you can get started on the next great Mac OS X application today. Jack Nutting is your guide through this forest; he's lived here for years, and he'll show you which boulder to push, which vine to chop, and which stream to float across in order to make it through. You will learn not only how to use the components of this rich framework, but also which of them fit together, and why. Jack Nutting's approach, combining pragmatic problem-solving with a deep respect for the underlying design philosophies contained within Cocoa, stems from years of experience using these frameworks. He'll show you which parts of your application require you to jump in and code a solution, and which parts are best served by letting Cocoa take you where it wants you to go. The path over what looks like a mountain of components and APIs has never been more thoroughly prepared for your travels. With Jack's guidance, the steep learning curve becomes a pleasurable adventure. There is still much work for the uninitiated, but by the time you're done, you will be well on your way to becoming a Cocoa master.
