A Web Programmer's New Best Friend: O'Reilly Releases "The Web Programming CD Bookshelf, Version 1.0"
Sebastopol, CA--Yes, web programming can be a lonely job--especially
when you're in the midst of it. There are moments when you are so
focused and your concentration is so intense that you can move your
eyes away from your monitor only with the most profound reluctance.
But, even the most experienced programmers must pause occasionally to
skim a reference book or track down that elusive bit of information
that can help them do the job a little better. What could be more
natural then, than to have those reference books on CD? The Web
Programming CD Bookshelf, Version 1.0 (O'Reilly, US $129.95) combines
the six books that web programmers use the most into a convenient CD.
Searchable, portable, and full of valuable information, it's like
having a web programming guru in your computer.
Formatted in HTML, "The Web Programming CD Bookshelf" can be read by
any web browser. The CD-ROM contains six bestselling O'Reilly web
programming guides--more than 4600 fully searchable and
cross-referenced pages--so programmers can search either the individual
index for each book or the master index for the entire collection.
Included are the complete, unabridged versions of these popular
As a bonus, "The Web Programming CD Bookshelf" also includes the new
paperback version of "Webmaster in a Nutshell, 3rd Edition."
"The Web Programming CD Bookshelf" is a complete repository of all the
information web programmers need to get their job done: an up-to-date,
exhaustive reference library on a single CD. If purchased separately,
the six books would retail for $264.70, but "The Web Design CD
Bookshelf" retails for only $129.95. This latest addition to O'Reilly's
CD Bookshelf series means that web programmers will never need to leave
their computers again--unless they choose to.
