Covering everything from game development to data science, security to web development, Mapt's curated skill paths help developers around the world stay ahead of the curve in the constantly evolving world of tech.

Developers simply go to and select their dream job or the skills they need to master and the platform tailors the right resources of high-quality materials created by working developers around the world. Drawing from Packt's library of more than 4000 expert-authored books, eBooks and videos, Mapt curates the best materials to give developers precisely what they need to advance their careers, saving hours of searching for the right resources.

Mapt is built for bite-sized bits of learning. Whether it is five minutes on a train or standing in line for a coffee, Mapt's modular learning fits into developers' lives. The platform makes it easy to pick up where they left off with previous materials, skip ahead or experiment with new languages.
