Packt Plone double-whammy

Packt Plone double-whammy

Have you tried Plone? It's an open source content management system that can be used as the basis for many kinds of websites. Plone strong points are its flexible and adaptable workflow, very good security, extensibility, high usability and flexibility. Sound interesting? If so, you're in luck. I'll be reviewing 2 new Plone books in the near future and you have the opportunity to purchase Plone books at a discount.

The first new book is "Plone 3 Products Development Cookbook", which promises 70 Plone recipes, and can be found here:

The book offers a sample chapter, it reads cleanly and clearly.

The second book is "Plone 3 Multimedia", which tells how to build a media-rich website with images, audio, video, and Flash.
The book is found here and a sample chapter is here.

In addition to the special pricing (discounts of 20% on print books and 30% on e-books) my friends at Packt tell me they'll be offering a chance at a 'lucky draw' iTunes or Amazon gift card to early purchasers of these books. I'm not privvy to exact details of that part of the promotion, so watch the web site for that one.

The special offer is detailed here.

I look forward to providing reviews on this blog in the near future. 'Till then,

Happy Reading!
