InformIT Supports Warpstock 2003

InformIT is donating several excellent technical books to be given away at this year's Warpstock convention. InformIT is also making available a special discount offer to Warpstock attendees only.

Warpstock, Inc. wishes to express our gratitude for this great, information rich, donation.

These great books come from publishers that are part of the Pearson Education family of publishers including Prentice-Hall and Addison-Wesley as well as one from IBM Press.

Eight lucky Warpstock attendees will walk away with one of these great titles:

  • JavaScript by Example
  • UML for Java Programmers
  • Java Development on PDAs
  • JavaSpaces in Practice
  • Programming Wireless Devices with the Java 2 Platform
  • Applying Enterprise JavaBeans, Second Edition
  • JDBC API Tutorial and Reference, Third Edition
  • DB2 Universal Database V8

That's $370 worth of books to give away! But, what about that discount offer?

InformIT has provided, just for Warpstock attendees, the opportunity to take advantage of a one-time 35% discount on an entire purchase of books from any of Pearson Education's family of publishers! A special discount code, provided via a flier to be distributed with the Warpstock registration packets, must be used to get this great discount. You could buy $300 worth of books and cover the cost of Warpstock!

InformIT is a subsidiary of Pearson Education. Their content partners, also members of the Pearson Education family, include: Addison-Wesley Professional, Cisco Press, New Riders, Peachpit, Prentice Hall Professional Technical Reference, Que, and Sams.

Is that it? Nope! Esther and Bill Schindler are adding to this trove of book give-aways as well! Long-time OS/2 VIPs, Esther and Bill are providing the following valuable books:

  • Down To Earth REXX, by Bill Schindler
  • The Essential Guide to Computing, E Garrison Walters
  • Patterns for eBusiness, user-to-business topology using WebSphere (IBM Redbook)
  • The OS/2 Debugging Handbook, Using the Debug Kernel and Dump Formatter -- 4 VOLUMES, 1-4 (IBM Redbooks)

That'll make four more lucky Warpstock attendees! The person who wins that last item (actually four books) will have a real programmer's dreamkit.

Warpstock, Inc. wishes also to express our thanks to Esther and Bill for their personal donation and to Esther personally for going the extra mile by arranging the donation and discount offer from InformIT.
