Packt Publishing reaches 1000 IT titles and celebrates with an open invitation

Recently I finished writing a book for packtpub . It was really a great experience and learning for me. Now I'm  glad to learn that Packtpub is about to publish its 1000th title. Here is the press release: Birmingham-based IT publisher Packt Publishing is about to publish its 1000th title. Packt books are renowned among developers for being uniquely practical and focused, but you’d be forgiven for not yet being in the know – Packt books cover highly specific tools and technologies which you might not expect to see a high quality book on. Packt is certain that in its 1000 titles there is at least one book that everyone in IT will find useful right away, and are inviting anyone to choose and download any one of its eBooks for free over its celebration weekend of 28-30th Sep 2012. Packt is also opening its online library for a week for free to give customers an easy to way to research their choice of free eBook. Packt supports many of the Open Source projects covered by its books
