Our books and publications share the experiences of your fellow IT professionals in adapting and customizing today's systems, applications, and frameworks. Our solutions-based books give you the knowledge and power to customize the software and technologies you're using to get the job done. Packt books are more specific and less general than the IT books you have seen in the past. Our unique business model allows us to bring you more focused information, giving you more of what you need to know, and less of what you don't.
Packt Publishing provides books, eBooks, video tutorials, and articles for IT developers, administrators, and users.
Packt's URL, www.PacktPub.com, is an amalgamation of the words "Packt and Publishing."
Community. Experience. Distilled.
At Packt, we believe that these three words concisely sum us up and what our books achieve.
Community captures the online and direct nature of what we do. We support and publish books on software that have developed loyal and active online technical communities
Experience encapsulates the practical, how to knowledge that our books provide.
Distilled differentiates the quality of our professionally edited and packaged books from the free content found on the web.
Packt Open Source Project Royalty Scheme
Packt believes in Open Source. When we sell a book written on an Open Source project, we pay a royalty directly to that project. As a result of purchasing one of our Open Source books, Packt will have given some of the money received to the Open Source project.
In the long term, we see you and ourselves as customers and readers of our books, as part of the Open Source ecosystem, providing sustainable revenue for the projects we publish on. Our aim at Packt is to establish publishing royalties as an essential part of the service and support business model that sustains Open Source.
In April 2010 the Packt Enterprise brand was created. Since 2010, Packt Enterprise has seen tremendous growth and since published 330+ books to date - with a focus on Oracle, Microsoft and IBM titles - the Enterprise brand is going from strength to strength, and is able to effectively delve more deeply into the world of Enterprise software. This specialisation allows a greater focus on, and better understanding of Enterprise technologies and the people who work with them.
