  • Building Blockchain Apps (April 7th)
  •       Michael Juntao Yuan
          Building on his pioneering experience, Michael Juntao Yuan covers
          a wide range of blockchain application development paradigms. The
          book starts with a concise introduction to blockchain and smart

          development on Ethereum-compatible smart contract platforms.
          Ethereum is the largest and most robust blockchain ecosystem in
          the world.

  • Righting Software (April 14th)
  •       Juval Löwy
          Righting Software presents the proven, structured, and highly
          engineered approach to software design that renowned architect
          Juval Löwy has practiced and taught around the world. Although
          companies of every kind have successfully implemented his original
          design ideas across hundreds of systems, these insights have never
          before appeared in print.

  • Learning Progressive Web Apps (April 21st)
  •       John M. Wargo
          Throughout the book, Wargo introduces each core concept and
          illustrates the implementation of each capability through several

  •       Laura Graesser and Wah Loon Keng
          Foundations of Deep Reinforcement Learning is an introduction to
          deep RL that uniquely combines both theory and implementation. It
          starts with intuition, then carefully explains the theory of deep
          RL algorithms, discusses implementations in its companion software
