Known for their extensive range of pragmatic IT ebooks, Packt Publishing are celebrating their 2000th book title `Learning Dart’– they want their customers to celebrate too.
To mark this milestone Packt Publishing will launch a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ offer across all eBooks on March 18th – for a limited period only.
`Learning Dart’ was selected as a title and published by Packt earlier this year. As a project that aims to revolutionise a language as crucial as JavaScript, Dart is a great example of an emerging technology which aims to support the community and their requirement for constant improvement. The content itself explains how to develop apps using Dart and HTML5 in a model-driven and fast-paced approach, enabling developers to build more complex and high-performing web apps.
David Maclean, Managing Director explains `It’s not by chance that this book is our 2000th title. Our customers and community drive demand and it is our job to ensure that whatever they’re working on, Packt provides practical help and support.
At Packt we understand that sometimes our customers want to learn a new programming language pretty much from scratch, with little knowledge of similar language concepts. Other times our customers know a related language fairly well and therefore want a fast-paced primer that brings them up to a competent professional level quickly.
That’s what makes Packt different: all our books are specifically commissioned by category experts, based on intensive research of the technology and the key tasks.’
Since 2004, Packt Publishing has been providing practical IT-related information that enables everyone to learn and develop their IT knowledge, from novice to expert.
Packt is one of the most prolific and fast-growing tech book publishers in the world.
Originally focused on open source software, Packt contributes back into the community paying a royalty on relevant books directly to open source projects. These projects have received over $400,000 as part of Packt’s Open Source Royalty Scheme to date.
Their books focus on practicality, recognising that readers are ultimately concerned with getting the job done.
Packt’s digitally-focused business model allows them to quickly publish up-to-date books in very specific areas across a range of key categories – web development, game development, big data, application development, and more. Their commitment to providing a comprehensive range of titles has seen Packt publish 1054% more titles in 2013 than in 2006.
Erol Staveley, Publisher, says `Recent research shows that 88% of our customers are very satisfied with the service knowing that we offer a wide breadth of titles in a timely manner, and owing to the quality of service that they receive 94% of customers are willing to recommend Packt to friends and family. It’s great that we’ve hit such a significant milestone, and we want to continue delivering this fantastic content to our customers.’


Here are some of the best titles across Packt's main categories - but Buy One, Get One Free will apply across all 2000 titles:

How Entrepreneurs Get Out Of The Price War... By Changing Labels

It's a pit trap we all must avoid: the price war. Because once we compete in a price war it's all about cutting costs, lessening profits, working more for less etc. and of course what suffers most is our consumer, our clients. Bad reviews from clients give us a bad reputation which is BAD for business.

So How to avoid the Price War? Watch this video:

Is a College Education Worth It?

Hat
In this article Robert Kiyosaki discusses his opinion on college education. If you have a child going to college soon or know someone who has this might be a good article for you.

 

When I was young, my poor dad wanted me to go to a good college and get a good job. To him, that was the path to security. To him, that was being rich.

I ended up going to the Merchant Marine Academy, one of the top schools in the nation, which at the time afforded some of the highest paying jobs after graduation.

I learned some valuable lessons such as discipline and leadership at the academy. But I didn’t learn how money worked or how to run a business. I learned those things later in life thanks to my rich dad and by finding jobs where I could work to learn rather than work to earn, such as my sales job with Xerox.

College prepared me to be a good employee, not a good entrepreneur or investor.

Thankfully, when I went to university, it was relatively affordable. I didn’t have to take out big loans, and I didn’t have the debt of my education hanging over my head. Also, at the time, you really could get a high-paying job if you wanted one, along with the high taxes that came with it.

I feel for today’s graduates because that’s not the case. Today’s graduates are paying obscene amounts of money for tuition, taking on crippling debt, and finding a job market that doesn’t justify the costs.

This week, I came across an article on CNNMoney.com, “My Degree Isn’t Worth the Debt!”, that should be a warning for all the young people thinking about starting university this fall.

The article features testimonials from six recent graduates on why they took on too much debt for the return their education afforded. Combined, the debt load of the six students is $701,800, most of which will take most of their adult life to pay off.

Here are a few quotes from the testimonials in the article:

“I have had a good life, but now at age 37, the weariness of carrying this financial burden frustrates me to no end. My son is nine years old now and will want to attend college when he graduates high school. But what will I tell him? First I have to decide if the college degree is worth the debt. I hope by the time he is making his decision, I will have figured it out.”

“I once believed that part of the American Dream was to earn a college education and this would ensure a great career and financial freedom. Unfortunately I am losing hope. I'm a mother of three, and my husband and I have been turned down from purchasing a home due to our income-to-debt ratio.”

“As social workers, we both love what we do, and we come home with a smile. But I will give you one small example of how desperate our lives are: when my wife graduated in 2007, she owed approximately $41,000 in her private alternative loans.

Three years after we started paying the minimum payments on this loan, you would think it would go down. Instead, we now owe $48,000 because of the interest!”

“My debt is a life-swallowing, all-consuming, hole in my life. No college degree is worth that.”

“I wanted to be a journalist, but I've resigned myself to the fact that I won't be able to support myself on an entry-level salary in that field. Instead, I took a temporary job providing customer service to a cell phone company”

“My life revolves around work. I'm barely able to afford rent, I'm cutting back on bills and I'm barely able to feed myself. Why? Because almost half my monthly income goes to Sallie Mae.”

Those are the words of people who believed the lie of the old rules of money and who now are paying for those lies that were sold to them. And they are the words of victims of a system that is both corrupt and criminal.

Many people say I’m anti-education, but nothing is further from the truth. I’m anti-corruption, and I’m anti-conspiracy. The student-loan racket in this country does not serve our students, it serves the rich.

I’m pro-education. I believe that complete education—education that includes comprehensive financial education—is the most important factor in determining whether you will be wealthy or not.

So, if you are considering college this fall—or if your child is getting ready for college—I ask you to educate yourself on the cost of that education…and the expected return.

The last thing I want is for you to add your words to the ones quoted above.

The last thing I want is for you to learn the hard way that it wasn’t worth it.

I encourage you to count the cost, and I also encourage you to explore other forms of education that may prepare you for what you want to do in life and that will provide you a good return—not what the rich want you to do and will provide them a good return.

 

This can of course be translated to the Philippines setting. A lot of people are doing doing everything they can to put their child in a good University or College. So it's good to consider the cost and the return. And consider pursuing Financial Education right beside an Academic Education.

Why Start a Business 3: To Give More TIME to your Loved Ones

When most people think about business they think about the stress, the longer hours, the sacrifices made.

This is what you get when you think about SMALL Businesses. If you don’t understand then it’s best if you read on.

One of the best reasons to start a business, a BIG business, is to CREATE TIME. Yes you can do that. Not by creating some futuristic time-machine (although that would be nice), but by creating more resources.

Let's think about it...

Why Start a Business 4: The Economy is Rising : Will you ride the wave or will you be wiped out?

If you absolutely have to know one thing about Asian economy then this must be it. This can affect all our lives in every way and if we don’t take advantage of this opportunity then it’s like missing the train and waiting for the next one in 100 years.

Will you ride the wave or will you be wiped out?
