Books and Publications, etc.

It's fairly common for some books/publications, etc. to be made available at BALUG and other User Group meetings.

These below are currently (subject to availability and/or request) brought by Michael Paoli and/or others to BALUG and some other user group meetings (e.g. Berkeley Unix User Group (BUUG), Bay Area Debian (BAD), Berkeley Linux Users Group, Ubuntu Hour (San Francisco & Berkeley), and sometimes San Francisco Linux Users' Group (SF-LUG) and others).
Other folks may also bring (some of) these and/or additional books, publications, etc.

Want to increase your odds of getting one of these books? :-)
I'll consider these factors:

  • make it to the meeting (that's where I generally give the book(s) away for some person(s) in the user group)
  • drop a note to the [L]UG's list regarding which title(s) you're interested in (in preference order if more than one), (and for what (noble) purpose(s))
  • make it to the meeting on time (or best approximations thereof) which such note(s) of interest are posted earliest/earlier to list

This first set is courtesy of Pearson Education's User Group program (they'd love if one writes a review of these, and especially on-line, and most especially on Amazon):
