Starfinder Adventure Path The Last Refuge Attack of the Swarm 2 of 6 Summary : Fleeing a world consumed by the ravenous, alien Swarm, the heroes and a handful of desperate survivors limp toward the nearest colony world in a newly acquired starship. After thwarting a mutiny, they reach a large metropolis, where tensions are high. Local fanatics claim the oncoming Swarm is a punishment for the system's sins, disrupting the military's efforts to take in refugees. Worse, a series of caverns below the city that provide the only refuge from inevitable invasion are far from unoccupied, and must be cleared out before time runs out! "The Last Refuge" is a Starfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for four 3rd-level characters. This adventure continues the Attack of the Swarm! Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes fight back against a ruthless and nigh-unstoppable alien invasion. This adventure also includes an early history of the Swarm-spawned shirren race, an exploration of biomechanical starships, and a selection of new Swarm monsters and other harrowing threats. Each monthly full-color softcover Starfinder Adventure Path volume contains a new installment of a series of interconnected science-fantasy quests that together create a fully developed plot of sweeping scale and epic challenges. Each 64-page volume of the Starfinder Adventure Path also contains in-depth articles that detail and expand the Starfinder campaign setting and provide new rules, a host of exciting new monsters and alien races, a new planet to explore and starship to pilot, and more!

Swarm Summary : X-Men meets Marissa Meyer’s Renegades when New York Times bestselling author of the Uglies series Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti in the second book of an explosive new trilogy about six teens with unique abilities. They thought they’d already faced their toughest fight. But there’s no relaxing for the reunited Zeroes. These six teens with unique abilities have taken on bank robbers, drug dealers, and mobsters. Now they’re trying to lay low so they can get their new illegal nightclub off the ground. But the quiet doesn’t last long when two strangers come to town, bringing with them a whole different kind of crowd-based chaos. And hot on their tails is a crowd-power even more dangerous and sinister. Up against these new enemies, every Zero is under threat. Mob is crippled by the killing-crowd buzz—is she really evil at her core? Flicker is forced to watch the worst things a crowd can do. Crash’s conscience—and her heart—get a workout. Anon and Scam must both put family loyalties on the line for the sake of survival. And Bellwether’s glorious-leader mojo deserts him. Who’s left to lead the Zeroes into battle against a new, murderous army?

The DevOps 2 1 Toolkit Docker Swarm Summary : Viktor Farcic's latest book, The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Docker Swarm, shows you how to successfully integrate Docker Swarm into your DevOps toolset. About This Book Expand your DevOps Toolkit with the DevOps thought leader, Viktor Farcic Build, test, deploy, and monitor services inside Docker Swarm clusters Translate your understanding to different hosting providers like AWS, Azure, and DigitalOcean Go beyond simple deployment to explore how to create a continuous deployment process Extend the deep understanding you gained from Viktor's DevOps 2.0 Toolkit book Who This Book Is For This book is for professionals interested in the full microservices life cycle combined with continuous deployment and containers. Target audience could be architects who want to know how to design their systems around microservices. It could be DevOps wanting to know how to apply modern configuration management practices and continuously deploy applications packed in containers. It is for developers who would like to take the process back into their hands as well as for managers who would like to gain a better understanding of the process used to deliver software from the beginning to the end. This book is for everyone wanting to know more about the software development life cycle starting from requirements and design, through the development and testing all the way until deployment and post-deployment phases. We'll create the processes taking into account the best practices developed by and for some of the biggest companies. What You Will Learn Learn all aspects of Docker Swarm from building, testing, deploying, and monitoring services inside Docker Swarm clusters, available since Docker 1.12. Master the deeper logic of DevOps with Viktor, so that you can successfully apply that logic across any specific set of tools you're working with. Translate a deep understanding to different hosting providers like AWS, Azure, DigitalOcean, among others. You'll go beyond simple deployment: you will explore with Viktor how to create a continuous deployment process. Accomplish zero-downtime deployments, and what to do in case of a failover. Know how to run services at scale, how to monitor the systems, and how to make it heal itself. In Detail Viktor Farcic's latest book, The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Docker Swarm, takes you deeper into one of the major subjects of his international best seller, The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit, and shows you how to successfully integrate Docker Swarm into your DevOps toolset. Viktor shares with you his expert knowledge in all aspects of building, testing, deploying, and monitoring services inside Docker Swarm clusters. You'll go through all the tools required for running a cluster. You'll travel through the whole process with clusters running locally on a laptop. Once you're confident with that outcome, Viktor shows you how to translate your experience to different hosting providers like AWS, Azure, and DigitalOcean. Viktor has updated his DevOps 2.0 framework in this book to use the latest and greatest features and techniques introduced in Docker. We'll go through many practices and even more tools. While there will be a lot of theory, this is a hands-on book. You won't be able to complete it by reading it on the metro on your way to work. You'll have to read this book while in front of the computer and get your hands dirty. Style and approach We'll go through many practices and even more tools. While there will be a lot of theory, this is a hands-on book. You'll have to read this book while in front of the computer and get your hands dirty. The goal is not to master one particular set of tools, but to learn the logic behind them so that you can apply it to your job in various contexts.

Earth Unaware Summary : A hundred years before Ender's Game, humans thought they were alone in the galaxy. Humanity was slowly making their way out from Earth to the planets and asteroids of the Solar System, exploring and mining and founding colonies. The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador's telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it's hard to know what to make of it. It's massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light. But the ship has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big. There are claim-jumping corporates bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt. Worrying about a distant object that might or might not be an alien ship seems...not important. They're wrong. It's the most important thing that has happened to the human race in a million years. This is humanity's first contact with an alien race. The First Formic War is about to begin. Earth Unaware is the first novel in The First Formic War series by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston.
