Technical Book Sale: Is $5 Cheap Enough?

January 6th, 2016 by Graham Bell

Jay Littlefield, Director of Product Strategy and Business Development at Real Intent sent me an email last night about a $5 book and video sale going on at PACKT Publishing books.  Their titles are normally $30 to $50 and cover all the latest software technologies that are popular in the web, internet, database, big data and hobby communities.  Sorry, no EDA software titles.

So if you are interested in knowing more about Python machine learning, React.js essentials, mastering Swift 2, cooking with Spark, diving into ECMAScript 6, or learning Docker, visit the PACKT web-site.   The $5 titles are PDFs and also come in your favorite e-reader and Kindle formats.

At DAC, in 2014, we were giving away BeagleBone Black embedded computers for hobby projects.  I checked and PACKT has 16 different titles for BeagleBone enthusiasts including “Building a BeagleBone Black Super Cluster.”  Imagine configuring your own parallel computing Beowulf cluster!

Jay bought the following titles:

  • Learning Joomla! 3 Extension Development
  • Joomla! 3 Beginner’s Guide
  • WordPress 4.0 Site Blueprints
  • Learning ELK Stack
  • Kibana Essentials

The sales ends on Friday Jan. 8.

Happy New Year!
