$5 Packt Publishing Electronic Books and Videos

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).

This is similar to the year-end deal they offered last year and additional details can be found at $5 Book Bonanza page.

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:

I am currently reading Java EE 7 First Look and plan to post my review of it before the calendar year is ended (and before the $5 eBook Bonanza offer expires).

There are a few other Packt Publishing books that look particularly interesting to me such as Mastering Web Application Development with AngularJS, Gradle Effective Implementation Guide, Java EE 7 Developer Handbook, Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3, HTML5 and CSS3 Responsive Web Design Cookbook, Getting Started with Meteor.js JavaScript Framework, Linux Utilities Cookbook, and LaTeX Beginner's Guide.
