Der Prozess des Kodierens ist ein systematisches Experimentieren mit Zeichen, Symbolen und dem Aufbau von kulturellen Bedeutungszusammenhängen. Der vierte Band der Buchreihe Kontext Architektur untersucht die architekturhistorische und -theoretische Relevanz des Begriffs „Code» aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven. Herausgeber und Autoren gehen davon aus, dass mit diesem eine neue Art der „Versprachlichung“ von Architektur möglich ist. So wird mit Blick auf die Dominanz der Computersimulation deutlich, dass das Gebäude nicht mehr nur Träger, sondern buchstäblich auch Erzeugnis von Zeichen ist. Der Code ist gewissermaßen von der Außenseite des Gebäudes in sein Inneres, in seine Struktur vorgedrungen. Wir haben es sowohl mit einem sozial-kulturellen, als auch mit einem mathematisch-formalen Code zu tun. Ziel des Buches ist es daher, die Konturen dieses begrifflichen Spannungsfeldes zwischen dem Kulturellen und dem Formalen, dem „Außen“ und dem „Innen“, kritisch zu ergründen und weiterführende Fragestellungen für die Architektur zu formulieren.

Wer an die ganz Großen des Investmentgeschäfts denkt, dem fallen zuerst George Soros und Warren Buffett ein. Weniger bekannt ist der Dritte im Bunde: Howard Marks. Dabei ist er in einem Atemzug mit Warren Buffett und George Soros zu nennen. Schließlich verwaltet er mit seiner Investmentgesellschaft Oaktree nicht weniger als 55 Milliarden Dollar. Das ihm anvertraute Vermögen hat er nicht nur sicher durch alle Krisen gebracht, sondern auch noch vermehrt. In Expertenkreisen gilt Marks als herausragender Investor, dessen Philosophie so wegweisend ist wie im 20. Jahrhundert Benjamin Grahams Wertpapier-Analyse. Marks weiß also, wovon er spricht, wenn er in zwanzig Kapiteln aufzeigt, worauf es wirklich ankommt. Zum Beispiel darauf, dass man weiß, wie sich Risiko klug steuern lässt und welche Fallen selbst bei einem durchdachten Investment lauern.

Since its original publication in 1999, this foundational book has become a classic in its field. This second edition, Code Version 2.0, updates the work and was prepared in part through a wiki, a web site allowing readers to edit the text, making this the first reader-edited revision of a popular book. Code counters the common belief that cyberspace cannot be controlled or censored. To the contrary, under the influence of commerce, cyberspace is becoming a highly regulable world where behavior will be much more tightly controlled than in real space. We can - we must - choose what kind of cyberspace we want and what freedoms it will guarantee. These choices are all about architecture: what kind of code will govern cyberspace, and who will control it. In this realm, code is the most significant form of law and it is up to lawyers, policymakers, and especially average citizens to decide what values that code embodies.

A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship

Even bad code can function. But if code isn’t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees. Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship . Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code “on the fly” into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer–but only if you work at it. What kind of work will you be doing? You’ll be reading code–lots of code. And you will be challenged to think about what’s right about that code, and what’s wrong with it. More importantly, you will be challenged to reassess your professional values and your commitment to your craft. Clean Code is divided into three parts. The first describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code. The second part consists of several case studies of increasing complexity. Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code–of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient. The third part is the payoff: a single chapter containing a list of heuristics and “smells” gathered while creating the case studies. The result is a knowledge base that describes the way we think when we write, read, and clean code. Readers will come away from this book understanding How to tell the difference between good and bad code How to write good code and how to transform bad code into good code How to create good names, good functions, good objects, and good classes How to format code for maximum readability How to implement complete error handling without obscuring code logic How to unit test and practice test-driven development This book is a must for any developer, software engineer, project manager, team lead, or systems analyst with an interest in producing better code.

Unsparing and important. . . . An informative, clearheaded and sobering book.—Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post (1999 Critic's Choice) Inner-city black America is often stereotyped as a place of random violence, but in fact, violence in the inner city is regulated through an informal but well-known code of the street. This unwritten set of rules—based largely on an individual's ability to command respect—is a powerful and pervasive form of etiquette, governing the way in which people learn to negotiate public spaces. Elijah Anderson's incisive book delineates the code and examines it as a response to the lack of jobs that pay a living wage, to the stigma of race, to rampant drug use, to alienation and lack of hope.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Freie Universität Berlin (Institut für Theaterwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Geschichte des Films, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Motion Picture Production Code trat 1930 unter Will Hays Führung der MPPDA als Instrument der filmindustriellen Selbstkontrolle in Kraft. Zuerst wurde er von den Filmgesellschaften zögernd akzeptiert. In den Jahren nach 1934 beugten sich die Filmstudios der Vorzensur durch den Motion Picture Production Code unter der Administration von Joseph Breen. Unter der Leitung von Joseph Breen hatte die Production Code Administration für mehr als 20 Jahre einen der stärksten Einflüsse auf die Filmproduktionen in Hollywood gehabt. Im Vergleich zu seinen Vorläufern erwies sich der Motion Picture Production Code als ein wirksames Kontrollinstrument, das zur Etablierung der filmindustriellen Selbstkontrolle in den U.S.A. führte und die Filmbranche von der staatlichen Zensur und finanzieller Krise bewahrte. Der Motion Picture Production Code wirkte nicht nur repressiv auf die Filmproduktionen, sondern er forderte durch seinen einschränkenden Charakter die Kreativität der Filmemacher heraus, indem diese neue Inszenierungen schaffen mussten, um die Einschränkungen des Codes umzugehen. Zwar schränkte der Motion Picture Production Code die Freiheiten der Filmemacher seiner Zeit ein, trug er jedoch zum kommerziellen „Siegeszug des Studiosystems“ bei.

Pre-Code Hollywood

Sex, Immorality, and Insurrection in American Cinema, 1930–1934

Pre-Code Hollywood explores the fascinating period in American motion picture history from 1930 to 1934 when the commandments of the Production Code Administration were violated with impunity in a series of wildly unconventional films—a time when censorship was lax and Hollywood made the most of it. Though more unbridled, salacious, subversive, and just plain bizarre than what came afterwards, the films of the period do indeed have the look of Hollywood cinema—but the moral terrain is so off-kilter that they seem imported from a parallel universe. In a sense, Doherty avers, the films of pre-Code Hollywood are from another universe. They lay bare what Hollywood under the Production Code attempted to cover up and push offscreen: sexual liaisons unsanctified by the laws of God or man, marriage ridiculed and redefined, ethnic lines crossed and racial barriers ignored, economic injustice exposed and political corruption assumed, vice unpunished and virtue unrewarded—in sum, pretty much the raw stuff of American culture, unvarnished and unveiled. No other book has yet sought to interpret the films and film-related meanings of the pre-Code era—what defined the period, why it ended, and what its relationship was to the country as a whole during the darkest years of the Great Depression... and afterward.

The Great Code

The Bible and Literature

Considered by many to be Northrop Frye's magnum opus, The Great Code (1982) reflects a lifetime of thinking about the patterns and meanings of the Bible. In this new edition of The Great Code, Alvin A. Lee presents a corrected and fully annotated version of Frye's text, as well as a comprehensive introduction to help contextualize this important work and guide readers through its allusive passages. Lee's introduction provides a synoptic account of the role of the Bible in Frye's intellectual and spiritual odyssey, as well as a description of how The Great Code as a book came into existence, and an introductory critique of the shape and meaning of the book's argument. The Great Code is culturally allusive to a high degree. It takes much of its inspiration from the Bible itself, including a profusion of biblical passages, but also from the author's extensive reading of a host of other texts from ancient times until the late twentieth century. Lee's extensive annotation illustrates, beyond question, that Frye's knowledge of the Bible and how it has worked in Western culture was at once profound and visionary. This new edition not only re-presents Frye's text in a clear, correct, and fully annotated form, it goes a long way in helping us understand the widespread scholarly and popular reception that met this extraordinary and in some ways revolutionary book and how it can still be richly rewarding for readers.
