Visual Design of GraphQL Data - Programmer Books


Get an introduction to the visual design of GraphQL data and concepts, including GraphQL structures, semantics, and schemas in this compact, pragmatic book. In it, you will see simple guidelines based on lessons learned from real-life data discovery and unification, as well as using visualization techniques. These, in turn, help you improve the quality of your API designs and give you the skills to produce convincing visual communications about the structure of your API designs. Finally, Visual Design of GraphQL Data shows you how to handle GraphQL with legacy data as well as with Neo4j graph databases. Spending time on schema quality means that you will work from sharper definitions, which in turn leads to greater productivity and well-structured applications.

Learning Python Design Patterns, Second Edition - Programmer Books


With the increasing focus on optimised software architecture and design it is important that software architects think about optimisations in object creation, code structure, and interaction between objects at the architecture or design level. This makes sure that the cost of software maintenance is low and code can be easily reused or is adaptable to change. The key to this is reusability and low maintenance in design patterns. Building on the success of the previous edition, Learning Python Design Patterns, Second Edition will help you implement real-world scenarios with Python's latest release, Python v3.5. We start by introducing design patterns from the Python perspective.
