A FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE MONTH FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: ´´ Nothing Mr. Gilder says or writes is ever delivered at anything less than the fullest philosophical decibel.. . Mr. Gilder sounds less like a tech guru than a poet, and his words tumble out in a romantic cascade.´´ ´´Google´s algorithms assume the world´s future is nothing more than the next moment in a random process. George Gilder shows how deep this assumption goes, what motivates people to make it, and why it´s wrong: the future depends on human action.´´ - Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies and author of Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future The Age of Google, built on big data and machine intelligence, has been an awesome era. But it´s coming to an end. In Life after Google, George Gilder-the peerless visionary of technology and culture-explains why Silicon Valley is suffering a nervous breakdown and what to expect as the post-Google age dawns. Google´s astonishing ability to ´´search and sort´´ attracts the entire world to its search engine and countless other goodies-videos, maps, email, calendars....And everything it offers is free, or so it seems. Instead of paying directly, users submit to advertising. The system of ´´aggregate and advertise´´ works-for a while-if you control an empire of data centers, but a market without prices strangles entrepreneurship and turns the Internet into a wasteland of ads. The crisis is not just economic. Even as advances in artificial intelligence induce delusions of omnipotence and transcendence, Silicon Valley has pretty much given up on security. The Internet firewalls supposedly protecting all those passwords and personal information have proved hopelessly permeable. The crisis cannot be solved within the current computer and network architecture. The future lies with the ´´cryptocosm´´-the new architecture of the blockchain and its derivatives. Enabling cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether, NEO and Hashgraph, it will provide the Internet a secure global payments system, ending the aggregate-and-advertise Age of Google. Silicon Valley, long dominated by a few giants, faces a ´´great unbundling,´´ which will disperse computer power and commerce and transform the economy and the Internet. Life after Google is almost here. For fans of ´´Wealth and Poverty,´´ ´´Knowledge and Power,´´ and ´´The Scandal of Money.´´

The Xamarin tool suite, Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS, is a bridge from .NET into the world of native mobile development. These tools give C sharp developers a direct line into native Android and iOS development, allowing them to build business apps for the Google Play and iTunes app stores. This book helps a developer navigate Android and iOS architecture using .NET. Mobile development makes frequent use of traditional patterns such as MVC, MVVM, Delegates, and Singleton. Pattern-savvy readers will find familiar .NET foundations here with logical bridges into mobile platform-specific implementations. Newcomers to design patterns will find a mobile pattern guidebook. The iOS UI must still be written in Xcode. The Android UI rests on Activities. How are all of these built on a variation of the familiar MVC pattern? The reader will learn about mobile data binding and decoupling of UI and back-end logic for cross-platform code reuse. Application lifecycles on native platforms are unique as mobile and tablet apps spawn, live, pause, and die. The reader will learn how code must respond to changes in state and manage data transfer between views. Web services are the mainstay of mobile data and this is a primer for cross-platform client/service construction. It also explores background data-loading techniques and offline access using local data structures: blueprints for the mobile data layer. This comprehensive recipe and reference book addresses one of the most important and vexing problems in the software industry today: How do we effectively design and develop cross-platform native mobile applications?

With the emerging use of electronic calendars services on the Internet the users are constantly increasing the number of Calendar(Event) platforms they use and the need to have them synchronized in one place is increasing. In this research we presented the evolution of the electronic services for calendars, and give overview of the APIs they use, along with protocols and interfaces to these services. We introduce an idea to create Event Aggregation model in order to exchange, modify and synchronize information about events from different calendar platforms. The solution is explained by protocols and patterns, as well as the structure and architecture, and platforms included We have implemented conceptual model using PHP/MySQL and WordPress open source as WordPress plugin which can get events from Eventbrite.com, Meetup.com, Facebook.com, iCalendar file, Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar and converted in standard iCalendar format which is stored in MySQL database and presented with GUI.
