This book Java, Java, Java is suitable for a typical Introduction to Computer Science (CS1) course or for a slightly more advanced Java as a Second Language course. This edition retains the “objects first” approach to programming and problem solving that was characteristic of the first two editions. The text emphasizes the careful coverage of Java language features, introductory programming concepts, and object-oriented design principles.

Programming patterns are solutions to problems that require the creation of a small fragment of code that will be part of a larger program. Hence, this book is about teaching you how to write such fragments of code.
However, it is not about teaching you the syntax of the statements in the fragments, it assumes that you already know the syntax. Instead, it is about finding solutions to problems that arise when first learning to programme.

In today’s world, we have a surplus of data, and the demand for learning data science has never been greater. The students need to be provided a solid foundation on data science and technology for them to be industry ready.
The objective of this curriculum is to lay the foundation for Data Science, understanding how data is collected, analyzed and, how it can be used in solving problems and making decisions. It will also cover ethical issues with data including data governance and builds foundation for AI based applications of data science.
Therefore, NIOS is introducing ‘Data Science’ as a skill module from the Session 2022 – 2023 which will benefit 170 million learners in the open schooling system in India. NIOS acknowledges the initiative by Microsoft India in introducing this coding handbook for class X students.
This handbook introduces the concepts of data science, data visualizations and applications of data science in AI. The course handbook covers the theoretical concepts of data science followed by practical examples to develop critical thinking capabilities among students. The purpose of the book is to enable the future workforce to acquire data science skills early in their educational phase and build a solid foundation to be industry-ready.

Resilient Web Design, you might think that this is a handbook for designing robust websites. This is not a handbook. It’s more like a history book.
In the world of web design, we are mostly preoccupied with the here and now. When we think beyond our present moment, it is usually to contemplate the future—to imagine the devices, features, and interfaces that don’t yet exist. We don’t have time to look back upon our past, and yet the history of web design is filled with interesting ideas.
This book was written to highlight some of the approaches to web design that have proven to be resilient. In learning from the past, we can better prepare for the future.

Think Java is a hands-on introduction to computer science and programming used by many universities and high schools around the world. Its conciseness, emphasis on vocabulary, and informal tone make it particularly appealing for readers with little or no experience. The book starts with the most basic programming concepts and gradually works its way to advanced object-oriented techniques.
