Accelerate your development process using Drupal 8 Views with this advanced, practical guide About This Book A practical, step-by-step guide with illustrative examples to give you a clear understanding of Drupal 8 views Get the only book on the market that talks about Drupal 8 views and their importance for developers Get an understanding of how views work and how they help to create modular applications Who This Book Is For This book is for web developers, web designers, and website administrators who use Drupal 8, have some basic knowledge of managing and developing apps with Drupal, and who want to get an advanced, practical knowledge of views and how to leverage them in Drupal 8 applications. What You Will Learn Create displays of content that are automatically updated when you add new content Show maps and rotating image carousels on your site Combine content to create composite displays using the same data in different ways Use fields from more than one content type to create powerful views of multi-table data Modify the field data being displayed, combining it in different ways or changing the HTML that might be normally generated Add headers and footers above and below a views display Make the output of your view look exactly like the designer specifies Change the order in which a list of content is displayed, limit the content shown to only certain content types or values Filter content using values passed to the view in the URL, making a single view work different ways In Detail Learn how to build complex displays of content—all without programming. Views were used on more than 80% of all Drupal 7 sites; now they are part of the Drupal 8 core. While most site builders and site owners are aware of views, they don't understand how to take full advantage of their power to create many amazing pages and blocks. If they use views, they might build 10 different view displays with different filters, without knowing that a contextual filter would require only a single display. Using our sample company, we'll take its existing content and evolve an ever more complex and powerful website for that company, starting with adapting the administration the user sees and moving on to making complex pages of information for site visitors. While the book is written for Drupal 8, the similarities between Views in Drupal 7 and 8 make this a useful reference for Drupal 7 site builders also. Style and approach This is the only advanced resource that will show you how to create, customize, and manage views in the Drupal 8 development environment. This has become more important since Drupal 8 has made views part of its core architecture.

Boost your confidence and get the competitive edge you need to crack the exam in just 21 days! About This Book Day-by-day plan to study and assimilate core concepts from CISSP CBK Revise and take a mock test at the end of every four chapters A systematic study and revision of myriad concepts to help you crack the CISSP examination Who This Book Is For If you are a Networking professional aspiring to take the CISSP examination and obtain the coveted CISSP certification (considered to be the Gold Standard in Information Security personal certification), then this is the book you want. This book assumes that you already have sufficient knowledge in all 10 domains of the CISSP CBK by way of work experience and knowledge gained from other study books. What You Will Learn Review Exam Cram and Practice review questions to reinforce the required concepts Follow the day–by-day plan to revise important concepts a month before the CISSP® exam Boost your time management for the exam by attempting the mock question paper Develop a structured study plan for all 10 CISSP® domains Build your understanding of myriad concepts in the Information Security domain Practice the full-blown mock test to evaluate your knowledge and exam preparation In Detail Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is an internationally recognized and coveted qualification. Success in this respected exam opens the door to your dream job as a security expert with an eye-catching salary. But passing the final exam is challenging. Every year a lot of candidates do not prepare sufficiently for the examination, and fail at the final stage. This happens when they cover everything but do not revise properly and hence lack confidence. This simple yet informative book will take you through the final weeks before the exam with a day-by-day plan covering all of the exam topics. It will build your confidence and enable you to crack the Gold Standard exam, knowing that you have done all you can to prepare for the big day. This book provides concise explanations of important concepts in all 10 domains of the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). Starting with Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability, you will focus on classifying information and supporting assets. You will understand data handling requirements for sensitive information before gradually moving on to using secure design principles while implementing and managing engineering processes. You will understand the application of cryptography in communication security and prevent or mitigate strategies for network attacks. You will also learn security control requirements and how to assess their effectiveness. Finally, you will explore advanced topics such as automated and manual test result analysis and reporting methods. A complete mock test is included at the end to evaluate whether you're ready for the exam. This book is not a replacement for full study guides; instead, it builds on and reemphasizes concepts learned from them. Style and approach There are many overlapping concepts that are applicable to more than one security domain in the CISSP exam. Hence, the eight security domains are aligned in a logical order so as to cover the concepts in the most appropriate sequence in this guide. Each chapter provides an illustration in the form of a flow diagram at the start to supply an overall view of the concepts covered in that chapter. This will facilitate a bird's-eye view of the chapter contents and the core security concepts covered. You can refer to this book throughout while preparing for the test or most importantly systematically revise the eight domains on a day-by-day basis up to one month before the exam. Hence the chapters are divided into 21 convenient days.

Linked Data

Evolving the Web Into a Global Data Space

The World Wide Web has enabled the creation of a global information space comprising linked documents. As the Web becomes ever more enmeshed with our daily lives, there is a growing desire for direct access to raw data not currently available on the Web or bound up in hypertext documents. Linked Data provides a publishing paradigm in which not only documents, but also data, can be a first class citizen of the Web, thereby enabling the extension of the Web with a global data space based on open standards - the Web of Data. In this Synthesis lecture we provide readers with a detailed technical introduction to Linked Data. We begin by outlining the basic principles of Linked Data, including coverage of relevant aspects of Web architecture. The remainder of the text is based around two main themes - the publication and consumption of Linked Data. Drawing on a practical Linked Data scenario, we provide guidance and best practices on: architectural approaches to publishing Linked Data; choosing URIs and vocabularies to identify and describe resources; deciding what data to return in a description of a resource on the Web; methods and frameworks for automated linking of data sets; and testing and debugging approaches for Linked Data deployments. We give an overview of existing Linked Data applications and then examine the architectures that are used to consume Linked Data from the Web, alongside existing tools and frameworks that enable these. Readers can expect to gain a rich technical understanding of Linked Data fundamentals, as the basis for application development, research or further study.
