h2> Kommentare, Formatierung, Strukturierung Fehler-Handling und Unit-Tests Zahlreiche Fallstudien, Best Practices, Heuristiken und Code Smells Clean Code - Refactoring, Patterns, Testen und Techniken für sauberen Code Aus dem Inhalt: Lernen Sie, guten Code von schlechtem zu unterscheiden Sauberen Code schreiben und schlechten Code in guten umwandeln Aussagekräftige Namen sowie gute Funktionen, Objekte und Klassen erstellen Code so formatieren, strukturieren und kommentieren, dass er bestmöglich lesbar ist Ein vollständiges Fehler-Handling implementieren, ohne die Logik des Codes zu verschleiern Unit-Tests schreiben und Ihren Code testgesteuert entwickeln Selbst schlechter Code kann funktionieren. Aber wenn der Code nicht sauber ist, kann er ein Entwicklungsunternehmen in die Knie zwingen. Jedes Jahr gehen unzählige Stunden und beträchtliche Ressourcen verloren, weil Code schlecht geschrieben ist. Aber das muss nicht sein. Mit Clean Code präsentiert Ihnen der bekannte Software-Experte Robert C. Martin ein revolutionäres Paradigma, mit dem er Ihnen aufzeigt, wie Sie guten Code schreiben und schlechten Code überarbeiten. Zusammen mit seinen Kollegen von Object Mentor destilliert er die besten Praktiken der agilen Entwicklung von sauberem Code zu einem einzigartigen Buch. So können Sie sich die Erfahrungswerte der Meister der Software-Entwicklung aneignen, die aus Ihnen einen besseren Programmierer machen werden – anhand konkreter Fallstudien, die im Buch detailliert durchgearbeitet werden. Sie werden in diesem Buch sehr viel Code lesen. Und Sie werden aufgefordert, darüber nachzudenken, was an diesem Code richtig und falsch ist. Noch wichtiger: Sie werden herausgefordert, Ihre professionellen Werte und Ihre Einstellung zu Ihrem Beruf zu überprüfen. Clean Code besteht aus drei Teilen:Der erste Teil beschreibt die Prinzipien, Patterns und Techniken, die zum Schreiben von sauberem Code benötigt werden. Der zweite Teil besteht aus mehreren, zunehmend komplexeren Fallstudien. An jeder Fallstudie wird aufgezeigt, wie Code gesäubert wird – wie eine mit Problemen behaftete Code-Basis in eine solide und effiziente Form umgewandelt wird. Der dritte Teil enthält den Ertrag und den Lohn der praktischen Arbeit: ein umfangreiches Kapitel mit Best Practices, Heuristiken und Code Smells, die bei der Erstellung der Fallstudien zusammengetragen wurden. Das Ergebnis ist eine Wissensbasis, die beschreibt, wie wir denken, wenn wir Code schreiben, lesen und säubern. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für alle Entwickler, Software-Ingenieure, Projektmanager, Team-Leiter oder Systemanalytiker, die daran interessiert sind, besseren Code zu produzieren.

For several years, the food industry has been interested inidentifying components in foods which have health benefits to beused in the development of functional food and nutraceuticalproducts. Examples of these ingredients include fibre,phytosterols, peptides, proteins, isoflavones, saponins, phyticacid, probiotics, prebiotics and functional enzymes. Although muchprogress has been made in the identification, extraction andcharacterisation of these ingredients, there remains a need forready and near-market platform technologies for processing theseingredients into marketable value-added functional food andnutraceutical products. This book looks at how these ingredientscan be effectively incorporated into food systems for market, andprovides practical guidelines on how challenges in specific foodsectors (such as health claims and marketing) can be addressedduring processing. Nutraceutical and Functional Food Processing Technologyis a comprehensive overview of current and emerging trends in theformulation and manufacture of nutraceutical and functional foodproducts. It highlights the distinctions between foods falling intothe nutraceutical and functional food categories. Topics includesustainable and environmentally–friendly approaches to theproduction of health foods, guidelines and regulations, and methodsfor assessing safety and quality of nutraceutical and functionalfood products. Specific applications of nutraceuticals in emulsionand salad dressing food products, beverages and soft drinks, bakedgoods, cereals and extruded products, fermented food products arecovered, as are novel food proteins and peptides, and methods forencapsulated nutraceutical ingredients and packaging. The impact ofprocessing on the bioactivity of nutraceutical ingredients,allergen management and the processing of allergen-free foods,health claims and nutraceutical food product commercialization arealso discussed. Nutraceutical and Functional Food Processing Technologyis a comprehensive source of practical approaches that can be usedto innovate in the nutraceutical and health food sectors. Fullyup-to-date and relevant across various food sectors, the book willbenefit both academia and industry personnel working in the healthfood and food processing sectors.

The goal of this book is neither to provide a basic introduction to imprinting, nor to provide a comprehensive survey of the current state of the field. Rather, the book covers more recent advances, drawing attention to the emerging subtleties and complexities associated with imprinted genes. Genomic imprinting refers to a recently discovered phenomenon in which the expression pattern of an allele depends on whether that allele was inherited from the mother or the father.
