NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/14 -- Dr. Ian Mortimer's diligent research, which unearths significant facts that have been lost in the course of history, marks his historical biographies -- Edward III: The Perfect King, Henry IV: The Righteous King and Henry V: The Warrior King -- with surprising insights about his subjects that will intrigue readers. These three books, now in digital format and published by RosettaBooks, take on some of England's most revered monarchs in an effort to show the men behind the legends.
"In these three books I tried hard to break down the traditional objectivity of the scholarly historian and to understand what made these men tick as human beings. Collectively, each book reveals the vision, passions and courage of three of England's greatest medieval kings," said Mortimer.
Mortimer shows in Henry IV: The Righteous King (The Fears of Henry IV: The Life of England's Self-Made King) that perceptions can change within the ruling of a monarch. Although Henry IV is often remembered as a king who subverted divine rule by deposing the proper monarch Richard II, he was actually hailed as a hero at the time for relieving the people of a tyrannical ruler. His ascension by force allowed his allies to devise schemes to do the same to him, and he survived eight plots to dethrone or kill him in the first six years of his reign.
Because of his contributions to the modern justice system, art and architecture, and language itself, Edward III is often praised as one of England's most influential kings. Edward III: The Perfect King (The Perfect King: The Life of Edward III, Father of the English Nation) reveals that among his accomplishments, a streak of brutality allowed the king to rise to power in the first place after overthrowing his guardians at age 17, usurping his father's crown, and ordering his uncle beheaded.
Celebrated by Shakespeare and the nation as one of England's greatest heroes, Henry V's legend has reached epic proportions over the centuries. However, Mortimer reveals in Henry V: The Warrior King (1415: Henry V's Year of Glory) that especially at the Battle of Agincourt, he used the insecurity of the Catholic Church and cruel force to solidify his authority.
"History can sometimes warp over decades and centuries, and scholars like Ian Mortimer remind us to look at the details to see the true picture," said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money.
