Let’s Celebrate Packt Publishing’s 10 th Anniversary with $10 per Book or Video!
I like to hear good news, and I was especially happy to find out Packt Publishing has reached a very significant milestone: 10 years in business! For us, humans, 10 years signifies the beginning of the teen years, leading to maturity, the same is true for businesses. I am sure Packt is well poised to begin its teen years as an even more IT centric educational content provider to IT professionals, students, and enthusiasts. I am sure it will continue to remain DRM free and support OSS as it did for ......

Flask Web Development - Developing Web Applications with Python by Miguel Grinberg, O’Reilly Media Book Review
I remember Miguel at one of the O’Reilly educational webcasts greeting the audience in three or four languages. Energetic, full of wisdom, creativity and warmth. How happy I was when I saw his forthcoming book available for review as part of the Reader Reviewer Program? Immensely! And my expectations were met: both Miguel and Flask ROCK! Written in a very professional manner, concise and at the same time with a feeling that the author is your friend, advocate and teacher. So Flask itself, seems relatively ......

Python in Finance by Yuxing Yan, Packt Publishing Book Review
I picked Python in Finance from Packt Publishing to review expecting to bore myself with complex algorithms and senseless formulas while seeing little actual Python in action, indeed at 400 pages plus it may seem so. But, it turned out to be quite the opposite. I learned a lot about practical implementations of various Python modules as SciPy, NumPy and several more, I think they empower a developer a lot. No wonder Python is on the track to become a de-facto scientist language of choice! But I am ......

Building a Data Mart with Pentaho Data Integration Video Review by Diethard Steiner, Packt Publishing
The Building a Data Mart with Pentaho Data Integration Video by Diethard Steiner from Packt Publishing is more than just a course on how to use Pentaho Data Integration, it also implements and uses the principals of the Data Warehousing (and I even heard the name of Ralph Kimball in the video). Indeed, a video watcher should be familiar with its concepts as the Star Schema, Slowly Changing Dimension types, etc. so I suggest prior to watching this course to consider skimming through the Data Warehouse ......
