Packt would like for all of you to fill in the new eBook survey and as an act of goodwill, Packt is offering those who fill it in, a huge eBook discount.
As Packt's range of books grows, more titles begin to relate to each other, and people may want to order more than one book. As such, a new range of discounts have been launched, with 18% being offered off the price of purchases of two to four books, and a 20% discount being applied to orders of five to ten books.
In order to gain a greater understanding of the take-up of cloud computing, Packt is running a cloud computing survey. We would love to hear your thoughts on this upcoming technology, and in return for your answers will offer 40% off the price of your next eBook purchase, through a discount code which you will receive on completion of the short questionnaire. It should take ten minutes at most, and can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/S6H2NC6
Packt's books are in the bookstore at Microsoft Tech-Ed, in room 270 of the convention centre. Come have a look!
At 8.40 on a muggy New Orleans Monday morning, I was sitting in a huge hall watching live jazz. Four giant screens, to either side of a colourful stage, cannot match the energy of the band's performance, or the feeling of surreality as a cover of James Brown's I Feel Good rang around the conference hall, complete with washboard and accordion.
Packt is attending Microsoft Tech-Ed from the 7th to the 10th of June in New Orleans. James Lumsden, publisher for Packt Enterprise, and Mark Nichols, Packt's marketing executive, will both be spending a lot of time on the floor of the exposition, and it would be great to meet some of the organizations attending.
