DISCOVERY | Explore behaviour using examples (BDD Books)
Explore behaviour using examples

Written by the creator of SpecFlow and the author of The Cucumber for Java Book, this book provides inside information on how to get the most out of the discovery phase of Behaviour Driven Development (BDD). This practical guide demonstrates good collaboration techniques, illustrated by concrete examples.

This book is written for everyone involved in the specification and delivery of software (including product owners, business analysts, developers, and testers). The book starts by explaining the reasons BDD exists in the first place and describes techniques for getting the most out of collaboration between business and delivery team members.

This is the first in the BDD Books series that will guide you through the entire development process, including specific technical practices needed to successfully drive development using collaboratively-authored specifications and living documentation.

From Tolerance to Tyranny — Erna Paris
A Cautionary Tale from Fifteenth-Century Spain

One thousand years ago there existed in Spain a civilization known throughout Europe in which Jews, Christians, and Moors lived together peacefully. But from the end of the fourteenth century to the end of the fifteenth, Spain was transformed into a society unified solely by the Catholic faith and the monarchy. In pinpointing the historical events that turned a multicultural state into an intolerant autocracy, Erna Paris compares what happened in medieval Spain to the social upheavals of twentieth-century Europe and our contemporary world.

In the span a few hundred years, however, Spain would transform itself from a pluralistic, multicultural society to the least tolerant nation in Europe. By the end of the fifteenth century, the Spanish Inquisition had established a reign of terror, and the Jews were expelled from the land they had inhabited for 1,500 years.

Eventually the Moors, or Arabs, were banned as well. The tragic configuration of events that turned a culture of tolerance into an autocratic police state was effectively repeated centuries later in Nazi Germany, in Occupied France, and even in places closer to home.

From Tolerance to Tyranny is a gripping tale of a long-ago era whose familiar echoes continue to resound today. Paris tackles the subject of majority-minority relations in mixed societies, focusing on the humanity of the players even as she exposes the pitfalls of their ideals.

Tiger Beatdown › What We Read When We Don’t Read the Internet PRESENTS! Au Revoir, Pretty Horses; Or, Why I Don’t Read Man Books Any More
I’m not the first person to point out that a lifetime spent reading against yourself is both disorienting and miserable. So I don’t really read manfiction any more; not because it’s bad, but because it makes me tired and a little sad. A lady is not a dishwasher, a font of mystery, a vortex, an unknowable object of desire. A lady, like any other person, is just someone with her own set of stories.

Booki Blog » Blog Archive » Experimental Wikibooks Importing - Books Live Here
Wikibooks has been around for a long time and has been compiling collections of free books. We thought it would be interesting to see if its possible to automate the import of these books into Booki. Doing this would open up the export possibilities for the content in Wikibooks. it would be possible, for example, for wikibooks to be exported into ePub, Book formatted PDF, ODT etc through Booki.

Invent with Python
"Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python" is a free e-Book that teaches you how to program in the Python programming language. Each chapter gives you the complete source code for a new game, and then teaches the programming concepts from the example.
