Canon IXUS 240 HS Digital Camera with Wi-Fi - Blue&hellip by Canon

The contents of this book are available free on the internet (legitimately) as part of academia the author had to make four years of work available for free. At 1000 pages I found it unwieldy as a pdf so I bought the book to dip in to - heavy but handy now.

The book itself is well written. If you know software patterns by the 'gang of four' then you'll be accustomed to the layout where each pattern has a context in which it applies, the problem and a pattern solution. The patterns show stylised circuit… Read more
