The advances in mobile technology and availability of broadband have made it easier to search for a hotel and book through an online reservation system. Although mobile applications are unlikely to revolutionize a hotels´ reservation system to the same extent that the internet did, it may have an impact on hotel revenue management and the concept of implementing price structures. An effective reservation system has to employ the latest technology to allow hoteliers to gain a competitive advantage over their rivals and remain at the forefront of emerging trends. Hotels must therefore adapt their websites to respond to this development by adopting the use of booking engines and developing marketing strategies to include mobile technology. The ideas in the book will help hoteliers to control all reservations that come from different sources in a single control system, distribute rooms favorably to different online channels and analyze the contribution each sales channel provides to revenue, identifying the most efficient ones.

Das Praxisbuch stellt die Windows PowerShell in der aktuellsten Version als vielseitiges Werkzeug für die Administration von Windows Server 2008 R2/2012/2012 R2 und Windows Server 2016 vor. Es richtet sich an Administratoren, die sich bereits mit der PowerShell auskennen und ihr Wissen an aktuellen Themen vertiefen wollen. Es beschreibt zunächst die Kernkonzepte der PowerShell wie Typen, Objekte, stellt die mit der Version 5.0 dazu gekommenen Klassen vor, und gibt einen Überblick über Advanced Functions und Module. Danach werden fortgeschrittenere Themen wie Debuggen, die Umwandlung von Texten in Objekte und das Testen von Skripten mit Pester vorgestellt. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt ist das Thema DevOps, das bei der PowerShell zum einen über die Desired State Configuration (DSC) adressiert wird, zum anderen über moderne Bereitstellungsmechanismen von Modulen und Ressourcen im Rahmen einer Release-Pipeline. Anwendungsorientierte Themen wie die Administration eines Active Directory, Azure-Dienste, Empfehlungen für gute Skripte und ein wenig Spaß, der beim Arbeiten mit der PowerShell, wie bei jeder Shell auch, dazu gehören sollte, runden das Buch ab.
Write maintainable, extensible, and durable software with modern C++. This book is a must for every developer, software architect, or team leader who is interested in good C++ code, and thus also wants to save development costs. If you want to teach yourself about writing clean C++, Clean C++ is exactly what you need. It is written to help C++ developers of all skill levels and shows by example how to write understandable, flexible, maintainable, and efficient C++ code. Even if you are a seasoned C++ developer, there are nuggets and data points in this book that you will find useful in your work. If you don´t take care with your code, you can produce a large, messy, and unmaintainable beast in any programming language. However, C++ projects in particular are prone to be messy and tend to slip into bad habits. Lots of C++ code that is written today looks as if it was written in the 1980s. It seems that C++ developers have been forg otten by those who preach Software Craftsmanship and Clean Code principles. The Web is full of bad, but apparently very fast and highly optimized C++ code examples, with cruel syntax that completely ignores elementary principles of good design and well-written code. This book will explain how to avoid this scenario and how to get the most out of your C++ code. You´ll find your coding becomes more efficient and, importantly, more fun. What You´ll Learn Gain sound principles and rules for clean coding in C++ Carry out test driven development (TDD) Discover C++ design patterns and idioms Apply these design patterns Who This Book Is For Any C++ developer and software engineer with an interest in producing better code.
