Enhance productivity in any Office application with zero programming experience Mastering VBA for Microsoft Office 2016 helps you extend the capabilities of the entire Office suite using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Even if you have no programming experience , you´ll be automating routine computing processes quickly using the simple, yet powerful VBA programming language. Clear, systematic tutorials walk beginners through the basics, while intermediate and advanced content guides more experienced users toward efficient solutions. This comprehensive guide starts at the beginning to get you acquainted with VBA so you can start recording macros right away. You´ll then build upon that foundation to utilize the full capabilities of the language as you use loops and functions, message boxes, input boxes, and dialog boxes to design your own Office automation program. Add-ins, embedded macros, content controls, and more give you advanced tools to enhance productivity, and all instruction is backed by real-world practice projects in Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint. Productivity is the name of the game, and automating certain computing tasks is an easy solution with significant impact for any business. This book shows you how, with step-by-step guidance and expert insight. Expand Office 2016 functionality with macros Learn how to work with VBA and the entire Office suite Create effective code, even with no programing experience Understand ActiveX, XML-based files, the developer tab, and more VBA is designed to be understandable and accessible to beginners, but powerful enough to create specialized business applications. If you´re ready to begin exploring the possibilities, Mastering VBA for Microsoft Office 2016 gets you started right away.

Programming in Go provides Product Description Your Hands-On Guide to Go, the Revolutionary New Language Designed for Concurrency, Multicore Hardware, and Programmer Convenience Today´s most exciting new programming language, Go, is designed from the ground up to help you easily leverage all the power of today´s multicore hardware. With this guide, pioneering Go programmer Mark Summerfield shows how to write code that takes full advantage of Go´s breakthrough features and idioms. Both a tutorial and a language reference, Programming in Go brings together all the knowledge you need to evaluate Go, think in Go, and write high-performance software with Go. Summerfield presents multiple idiom comparisons showing exactly how Go improves upon older languages, calling special attention to Go´s key innovations. Along the way, he explains everything from the absolute basics through Go´s lock-free channel-based concurrency and its flexible and unusual duck-typing type-safe approach to object-orientation. Throughout, Summerfield´s approach is thoroughly practical. Each chapter offers multiple live code examples designed to encourage experimentation and help you quickly develop mastery. Wherever possible, complete programs and packages are presented to provide realistic use cases, as well as exercises. Coverage includes Quickly getting and installing Go, and building and running Go programs Exploring Go´s syntax, features, and extensive standard library Programming Boolean values, expressions, and numeric types Creating, comparing, indexing, slicing, and formatting strings Understanding Go´s highly efficient built-in collection types: slices and maps Using Go as a procedural programming language Discovering Go´s unusual and flexible approach to object orientation Mastering Go´s unique, simple, and natural approach to fine-grained concurrency Reading and writing binary, text, JSON, and XML files Importing and using standard library packages, custom packages, and third-party packages Creating, documenting, unit testing, and benchmarking custom packages Tables xv Introduction 1 Why Go? 1 The Structure of the Book 4 Acknowledgments 5 Chapter 1: An Overview in Five Examples 7 1.1.
