The essential guide to solving algorithmic and networking problems in commercial computer games, revised and extended Algorithms and Networking for Computer Games, Second Edition is written from the perspective of the computer scientist. Combining algorithmic knowledge and game-related problems, it explores the most common problems encountered in game programing. The first part of the book presents practical algorithms for solving classical topics, such as random numbers, procedural generation, tournaments, group formations and game trees. The authors also focus on how to find a path in, create the terrain of, and make decisions in the game world. The second part introduces networking related problems in computer games, focusing on four key questions: how to hide the inherent communication delay, how to best exploit limited network resources, how to cope with cheating and how to measure the on-line game data. Thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded to reflect the many constituent changes occurring in the commercial gaming industry since the original, this Second Edition , like the first, is a timely, comprehensive resource offering deeper algorithmic insight and more extensive coverage of game-specific networking problems than ordinarily encountered in game development books. Algorithms and Networking for Computer Games, Second Edition: Provides algorithmic solutions in pseudo-code format, which emphasises the idea behind the solution, and can easily be written into a programming language of choice Features a section on the Synthetic player, covering decision-making, influence maps, finite-state machines, flocking, fuzzy sets, and probabilistic reasoning and noise generation Contains in-depth treatment of network communication, including dead-reckoning, local perception filters, cheating prevention and on-line metrics Now includes 73 ready-to-use algorithms and 247 illustrative exercises Algorithms and Networking for Computer Games, Second Edition is a must-have resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking computer game related courses, postgraduate researchers in game-related topics, and developers interested in deepening their knowledge of the theoretical underpinnings of computer games and in learning new approaches to game design and programming. Jouni Smed holds a doctorate in Computer Science and acts as a Senior Lecturer and Adjunct Professor at the University of Turku, Finland. He is also the co-founder of Turku Game Lab, which aims at bringing together technologically- and artistically-oriented students to collaborate on game projects and jump-start their careers in the game industry. For the past twenty years, his research interests have focused on various areas of game development: from code tweaking to software processes and from simple puzzles to multisite game development. Harri Hakonen works as a senior software developer at Ericsson, being a member of a small team implementing embedded real-time products over Linux. He has thirty years of computer-related experience, covering various professions at academy, software industry and startups.

Kubernetes Management Design Patterns - With Do...
41,64 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Take container cluster management to the next level; learn how to administer and configure Kubernetes on CoreOS; and apply suitable management design patterns such as Configmaps, Autoscaling, elastic resource usage, and high availability. Some of the other features discussed are logging, scheduling, rolling updates, volumes, service types, and multiple cloud provider zones. The atomic unit of modular container service in Kubernetes is a Pod, which is a group of containers with a common filesystem and networking. The Kubernetes Pod abstraction enables design patterns for containerized applications similar to object-oriented design patterns. Containers provide some of the same benefits as software objects such as modularity or packaging, abstraction, and reuse. CoreOS Linux is used in the majority of the chapters and other platforms discussed are CentOS with OpenShift, Debian 8 (jessie) on AWS, and Debian 7 for Google Container Engine. CoreOS is the main focus becayse Docker is pre-installed on CoreOS out-of-the-box. CoreOS: Supports most cloud providers (including Amazon AWS EC2 and Google Cloud Platform) and virtualization platforms (such as VMWare and VirtualBox) Provides Cloud-Config for declaratively configuring for OS items such as network configuration (flannel), storage (etcd), and user accounts Provides a production-level infrastructure for containerized applications including automation, security, and scalability Leads the drive for container industry standards and founded appc Provides the most advanced container registry, Quay Docker was made available as open source in March 2013 and has become the most commonly used containerization platform. Kubernetes was open-sourced in June 2014 and has become the most widely used container cluster manager. The first stable version of CoreOS Linux was made available in July 2014 and since has become one of the most commonly used operating system for containers. What Youll Learn Use Kubernetes with Docker Create a Kubernetes cluster on CoreOS on AWS Apply cluster management design patterns Use multiple cloud provider zones Work with Kubernetes and tools like Ansible Discover the Kubernetes-based PaaS platform OpenShift Create a high availability website Build a high availability Kubernetes master cluster Use volumes, configmaps, services, autoscaling, and rolling updates Manage compute resources Configure logging and scheduling Who This Book Is For Linux admins, CoreOS admins, application developers, and container as a service (CAAS) developers. Some pre-requisite knowledge of Linux and Docker is required. Introductory knowledge of Kubernetes is required such as creating a cluster, creating a Pod, creating a service, and creating and scaling a replication controller. For introductory Docker and Kubernetes information, refer to Pro Docker (Apress) and Kubernetes Microservices with Docker (Apress). Some pre-requisite knowledge about using Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2, CloudFormation, and VPC is also required. Deepak Vohra is an Oracle Certified Associate and a Sun Certified Java Programmer.
