From now through 3 January 2014, Packt Publishing is offering any of their extensive collection of books (they estimate the number as over 1700) in electronic format for $5 (USD) each (deal also applies to videos available on their site).
Although I have received free copies of Packt Publishing books that I have reviewed in the past or as compensation for reviewing a Packt Publishing book, I am posting about this $5 eBook Bonanza primarily because I think it may be of value to software developers. Browsing the catalog can make one aware of the wide variety of languages, toolkits, frameworks, and libraries that are out there and, for $5, it might be worth it to purchase a book to find out more about a potentially interesting topic.
Here are some of my prior reviews of Packt Publishing books:
- HTML5 Data and Services Cookbook
- Developing RESTful Services with JAX-RS 2.0, WebSockets, and JSON
- JBoss Weld CDI for Java Platform
- TestNG Beginner's Guide
- GateIn Cookbook
- Java EE 6 Cookbook for Securing, Tuning, and Extending Enterprise Applications
- JBoss AS 7: Configuration, Deployment, and Administration
- Java EE 6 Development with NetBeans 7
