Netty Cookbook

Introduction is a popular open source library that greatly simplifies the development of network applications on top of the JVM.  It abstracts the burden to deal with tedious low level details and allows you to concentrate on your business logic instead.  It is used by high profile companies like Red Hat, Twitter or Facebook and designed from the ground up to handle high throughput at low latency, even with thousands of connections at the same time.

In this book, you are going to build both client and server using netty best practices, which are communicating with each other in a completely asynchronous fashion.  We are going to explore the netty pipeline, how you can reuse existing protocol handlers and how to write your own.

The Society of the Spectacle

Self-proclaimed leader of the Situationist International, Guy Debord was certainly responsible for the longevity and high profile of Situationist ideas, although the equation of the SI with Guy Debord would be misleading. Brilliant but autocratic, Debord helped both unify situationist praxis and destroy its expansion into areas not explicitly in line with his own ideas. His text The Society of the Spectacle remains today one of the great theoretical works on modern-day capital, cultural imperialism, and the role of mediation in social relationships.
