PSA – Packt Publishing is giving away free technology related books every day. For the price it’s hard to beat. For those of you who don’t want to read my ramblings here is the link.
Anyone still here. If you are wondering what Packt publishing books are all about. I would say that they are Average books for Technical or Experienced professionals. Packt books are great to learn a new skill that’s similar to what you already know. They usually lack the details and step by step hand holding that beginners want.
The Best thing about Packt books are that they are published quickly. Likely they are the only (reasonably priced) source for books on the latest obscure open source technology. This is great as it helps you get off the ground and running. It’s much more friendly than the README.txt file or Man pages.
Overall Packt has solid offerings and is something I use frequently.
