More suited for people wanting a career in PHP! Sorry to be flippant. Python's a competing language and Django is a framework based on it. So there's not much technical interplay. That said if I was interviewing a developer I would value them having a broader background understanding across web technologies. This book isn't for absolute beginners, I think the target readership would be competent PHP5 programmers. It doesn't start from first principles.


You'll get far in life ;)


Reading book never teaches me ... i preferred hand on approach... so I find a php framework (Laravel , Symfony) and build simple app yourself ....


Tried to learn this language a few years back. Went through a beginners book from cover to cover, done all the exercises, but was none the wiser at the end. Wish I had given up at the front cover.


It was missing a decent if oop. If attention = true Keep reading Else vote hot and leave

I am coming from an Ops background and now an AWS engineer so only recently started writing some Python scripts in Lambda. I have to say I'm getting the hang of it but not very good at it :( Are there any good resources someone can recommend for learning Python with the BOTO3 SDK?

I see what happened to that link now (after I went to 'edit' mode) ... HUKD truncated my Freebie link to: "" Instead of just: "" It's just one of those things at time's?. :-)


As per my Freebie Deal above: "be quick if you want it.…ing" I always make additional mention of my Deal's link's in almost every Deal I've ever Posted on here ... And in the case of Deal's I've Posted on here in the last 1 Year+ at least, it's been of always! (be they Freebies or otherwise), lol. :-D It's all good though. :-)


anything for free is by definition the best deal anyone could possibly get - only a bonehead would vote it cold :)


Another one? amour3kyou related to DK Khaled? or you have shares in Pactpub? (lol) (lol)


I assume because people see it as duplicate posts - Books are available via the same link every day and this book has been available twice before

Glad to help. :-)


Amen to that, thanx, and your welcome. :-)


Thanks Op. I don't deal with Linux at work or in my everyday life but it is always useful to have and it is free. Also there are other free books going to be available. Win, win.


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.


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

same here... yh, it wasn't working earlier as the numpties hadn't put the "grab this book" link up on their webpage properly! i've had it a few times (tbf, not many), but they've usually got it sorted within a few hrs... it certainly is now!


Thanks OP I grab one of these free books most days but they've changed something on their site today. Couldn't find until I tried your link.

IT based ebooks all down to £9.22 at  packtpub
Found 15th Sep 2017Found 15th Sep 2017
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. :-)
