The PIC Microcontroller: Your Personal Introductory Course
Author: John Morton
Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers and introducing the PIC microcontroller's capabilities through simple projects, this book is ideal for electronics students, engineers and hobbyists. The step-by-step explanations and useful projects make it ideal for self-study, with an emphasis on hands-on learning from the start.
Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers, this book provides step-by-step instructions for simple projects introducing the PIC's capabilities. This new edition also covers the reprogrammable EEPROM PICs: P16C84/P16F84 as well as the P54 and P71 families. Chapters outline the basics, look at specific series, describe a PIC development environment, offer programming tips, and present 17 sample programs. Appendixes discuss specifications, pin layouts, quick references, troubleshooting, contact information, and further reading. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices 1/e
Author: Robert Cecil Martin
Best selling author and world-renowned software development expert Robert C. Martin shows how to solve the most challenging problems facing software developers, project managers, and software project leaders today.
- This comprehensive, pragmatic tutorial on Agile Development and eXtreme programming, written by one of the founding father of Agile Development:
- Teaches software developers and project managers how to get projects done on time, and on budget using the power of Agile Development.
- Uses real-world case studies to show how to of plan, test, refactor, and pair program using eXtreme programming.
- Contains a wealth of reusable C++ and Java code.
- Focuses on solving customer oriented systems problems using UML and Design Patterns.
