What Readers Are Saying About
Seven Languages in Seven Weeks

Knowing multiple paradigms greatly influences our design abilities, so
I’m always on the lookout for good books that’ll help me learn them.
This book nicely brings prominent paradigms together. Bruce has experience learning and using multiple languages. Now you can gain from his experience through this book. I highly recommend it.
Dr. Venkat Subramaniam
Award-winning author and founder, Agile Developer, Inc.
As a programmer, the importance of being exposed to new programming languages, paradigms, and techniques cannot be overstated.
This book does a marvelous job of introducing seven important and diverse languages in a concise—but nontrivial—manner, revealing their strengths and reasons for being. This book is akin to a dim-sum buffet for any programmer who is interested in exploring new horizons or evaluating emerging languages before committing to studying one in particular.
Antonio Cangiano
Software engineer and technical evangelist, IBM
Fasten your seat belts, because you are in for a fast-paced journey.
This book is packed with programming-language-learning action.
Bruce puts it all on the line, and the result is an engaging, rewarding book that passionate programmers will thoroughly enjoy. If you love learning new languages, if you want to challenge your mind, if you want to take your programming skills to the next level—this book is for you. You will not be disappointed.

Seven Wonders

...The world is full of many of mans’ accomplishments that both amaze us and are astounding. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are some of the most incredible works that have ever been created. They can be amazing for many different reasons. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are all judged by their artistry, engineering skill, construction and sheer scale (Berg, October 2, 2001). In the following paragraphs, I will examine four of the most remarkable man made creations in the ancient world. The Temple of Artemis is an amazing example of human ingenuity. The temple is a Greek building made up of 127 marble columns that are 60 feet tall each (Browne). It was designed by Chersiphron, and erected at the expense of Croesus, the fabulously wealthy king of Lydia in 550 B.C (Brown). I took nearly 120 years to complete because of its’ sheer size and details that were carved into many of the columns. It is the largest temple of the ancient world because of the competitive nature that the Greeks had with the rest of the world during that time. What is amazing however is that it has been rebuilt three times. Its’ final demise was in 262 A.D (The British Museum). Another amazing ancient wonder was the Statue of Zeus that was created in 432 B.C, very close to the time when the Temple of Artemis was built. It is a statue of Zeus that was made of the ivory and gold-plated bronze. It was erected at Olympia for the ancient Olympic Games that were said to start in 776 B.C....

Seven Sister

...Seven Sister States The Seven Sister States of India The Seven Sister States (Assamese: সাতভনী ৰাজ্য), also called "Paradise Unexplored," is a name given to the contiguous states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura in northeastern India. These states cover an area of 255,511 km2, or about 7 percent of India's total area. They had a population of 44.98 million in 2011, about 3.7 percent of India's total. Although there is great ethnic and religious diversity within the seven states, they also have similarities in political, social and economic contexts. The Seven States State | Capital | Arunanchal Pradesh | Itanagar | Assam | Dispur | Manipur | Imphal | Meghalaya | Shillong | Mizoram | Aizawl | Nagaland | Kohima | Tripura | Agartala | History When India became independent from the United Kingdom in 1947, only three states covered the area. Manipur and Tripura were princely states, while a much larger Assam Province was under direct British rule. Its capital was Shillong (present day Meghalaya's capital). Four new states were carved out of the original territory of Assam in the decades following independence, in line with the policy of the Indian government of reorganizing the states along ethnic and linguistic lines. Accordingly, Nagaland became a separate state in 1963, followed by Meghalaya in 1972. Mizoram became a Union Territory in 1972, and achieved statehood - along with Arunachal Pradesh - in......

...Sunil Chopra TEACHING NOTE: SEVEN-ELEVEN JAPAN CO. The goal of this case is to illustrate how a firm can be successful by structuring its supply chain to support its supply chain strategy. Once Seven-Eleven Japan decided to provide responsiveness by rapid replenishment, it then structured its facilities, inventory, information, and distribution to support this choice. The case also brings up the question of whether the same approach can work in the United States, especially given the greater distances and lower store density. Questions 1. A CONVENIENCE STORE CHAIN ATTEMPTS TO BE RESPONSIVE AND PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY NEED, WHEN THEY NEED IT, WHERE THEY NEED IT. WHAT ARE SOME DIFFERENT WAYS THAT A CONVENIENCE STORE SUPPLY CHAIN CAN BE RESPONSIVE? WHAT ARE SOME RISKS IN EACH CASE? As responsiveness increases, the convenience store chain is exposed to greater uncertainty. A convenience store chain can improve responsiveness to this uncertainty using one of the following strategies, especially for fresh and fast foods: Local capacity: The convenience store chain can provide local cooking capacity at the stores and assemble foods almost on demand. Inventory would be stored as raw material. This is seen at the U.S. fast food restaurant franchise Subway where dinner and lunch sandwiches are assembled on demand. The main risk with this approach is that capacity is decentralized, leading to poorer utilization. Local inventory: Another approach is...

Seven Eleven

...Seven Eleven Case Study Questions 3, 4 and 6 Question 3 What has Seven Eleven done in its choice of facility location, inventory management, transportation and information infrastructure to develop capabilities to support its supply chain strategy in Japan? In order to support it’s supply chain strategy in Japan, Seven Eleven has developed a number of capabilities to ease the movement of inventory to and from its distribution center and around it’s entire supply chain network. One method in particular that Seven Eleven has implicated is its cluster location strategy. This is where an average of 50 to 60 stores along side a distribution center are located within a region of demand in Japan. This approach provides Seven Eleven with a centralized strategy to its supply chain; meaning an effective distribution network is formed across the company as the stores and distribution center are located within close proximity to each other allowing for a reduction in transportation times and cost. Another strategy Seven Eleven has implicated to support its supply chain strategy is its effective use of a combined delivery system. This enables the company to distribute products in a more efficiently manner across the supply chain network, as products that fall into similar temperature categories can be transported together and to several store at one given time. Seven Eleven’s investment in inventory management and information Infrastructure has also aided improvements......

Mgt/210 Week Seven

...Week Seven Andrew R. Reyna MGT/210 June 10, 2012 Kathy Willis Week Seven After completing exercise 15-3 in our text, I was rather astonished by the results. The test indicated that I was 84 percent of a leader and 16 percent of a supervisor. While completing this test some of the questions I found to rather hardlined and somewhat biased in the way they were presented and often times the questions were too black and white. Honestly, I find myself to be more of mixture between a leader and supervisor rather than a leader, nevertheless, I digress. I feel as though being a leader, as indicated by the test, the strengths that I would use to approach two of the supervisory responsibilities, would be fairness, patients, ability to find new ways to approach problems, gathering the correct resources, and my cunningness to overstep bureaucracy and see things for what they are. The two supervisory responsibilities that I use my strengths towards would be Demonstrating Communication and Improving Productivity as a Team. I feel as though, after taking the test, that I am a mixture of a leader and supervisor. My leadership consists of being able to approach things as a captain of a ship. This type of leadership holds many things sacred such as, honor, respect, making swift and calculating decisions and more importantly have the confidence of your crew or the people you lead. This type of leadership keeps the big picture constantly in front of him or her while at the same......
