Fair enough, but that fall's into irrelevance (so to speak), purely for one reason (as you also rightly pointed out), "this deal being on each day but not what each day's book"?.

Yes, each day will be different (so well within the rules ... )

Rules aside though, can you honestly tell me that 6 Month's from now you're exactly going to remember that original poster's Post reminding you of such? (or better yet, even this time 1 Month from now?), lol.

Reminders are always helpful in my book? (that's my moto anyway, lol), especially for something like this that may//may not necessarily stay still?).

That aside again, more than 1 year back I used to Post this up on here in the HUKD Freebie Section, on an almost daily basis give or take a 1 day on, 1 day off here or there method or two ... (scroll through my earlier of early Deal's etc to see such?). :-)

They stopped giving out their freebie book's about 2 week's either end of Christmas/New Year (give or take, about 1 Month in total?) - so (within reason of course), anything moving forward now is fair game. :-)

But thanx anyway. :-)

Decent read, thanks!

Used Packt for years. Quality varies depending on who writes them (as with all books). Generally, I thought their ebooks have always been pretty good. Certainly no worse than any other book company. Their support is also excellent. Always replied back to emails within 48 hours when I've contacted them.

Packt videos can vary greatly, especially now they are using 3rd party videos. A lot of the 3rd party ones are also found on sites such as Udemy (Yes, I know Packt produced videos are also on Udemy). They are generally on the shorter side (3 hours) which isn't always a bad thing. I had one that was definitely a synth voice and that was annoying. Their content so far has been ok, sometimes don't cover quite enough for my taste. They often have an ebook of the same name as the video courses. You'll find the ebook covers way more topics but its also more a grind to get through. One thing to remember is that Udemy minimum price is now 10 euroes which means these courses are half the price of what Udemy will ever be.

Another thing to note is that you can pre-order future books/videos at this price. I usually stock up at this time of year (this $5 sale always seems to happen in Dec).

The main reason I use Packt ebooks and videos is that they are DRM free. You can download the ebooks in PDF, epub and mobi versions and also read them online. Their videos are also available as a download (1 zip so no downloading 1 video at a time) and available online.

Basically, for £4.56 you can do a lot worse. Hot from me.

I've just bought a couple of videos on Vmware Horizon 7 and one Vmware AppVolumes. The audio quality is not great, but the content seems OK.

Most of this is on YouTube for free


The problem with YouTube, you go there looking for something,but there's always something more interesting (especially when I'm at work)...

Not sure about packtpub, but in general, the quality of technical books is at the most mediocre. It's really annoying trying to learn new topics and find mistakes/errors in the book text and code examples...

I believe that is their real worth compared to their usual highly inflated prices. .. Some interesting titles /books in there..

The books I've seen from them haven't been very well written. YMMV

These days I'm tending more to Pluralsight or Udemy courses as for many topics the books are out of date as soon as they're written, which is a shame as I prefer books (looking at you web technologies)

I know this company and worth signing up for their newsletter. The often have great deals and freebies. very community orientated staff team too :-)

Urgh, I hate clowns. Cold.

Joking of course.

This is a deals site, so we must be pennywise.

I love the way that the EU insists that VAT be charged on e-books whereas it isn't on paper ones.

Somehow I doubt it will change upon leaving though. :-)

The daily book freebie is ongoing and perhaps a reminder of it every once in a while would be met with a more charitable response. 107/163 postings from one poster may be perceived as over-egging an offer?


I hear you, BUT, it also depends on your interpretation too I guess?.

After all, I'm pretty sure by 3guesses initial comment, that they too were NOT familiar with my Freebie Deal same way?, or .....

Plus, if you also scroll through the body of those same alleged so-called 'milking posts' of mine of the same ilk, you will find (more often than not), there's at LEAST 1 person commenting on there in appreciation of that then said posting of my Freebie Deal upon there, etc? (and sometimes 2-3+ comments stating such also?, so ..... )

Not everyone is in the same ball park (3guesses being notably 1 of them one's possibly not formally knowing of this previously too, and the like?), as somewhat all knowing it all already or whatever? (or else, everyone would clearly be able to bypass my posts altogether, and go directly there regardless, etc etc?).

So, my insistence in these, clearly means that more/some more others, are however obviously still benefiting some out there?. :-)

And it's for them I do it for, more than that of anything else like ...

Thanx for the feedback anyway. :-)

Voted cold? Are HUKD members so anti-learning?

They are copyrighted, of course, and currently almost 1GB in PDF format. The subjects are diverse, from Android to Unity, via Kali and Wireshark. Some programming language stuff, some database stuff, but all stuff that might be of use either at work or home.

They do also repeat the books occasionally.
