Want to get a deal on Redis in Action?

As we come into the home stretch of the release of Redis in Action, a lot of work has been going on behind the scenes. Easily 3-4 complete read-throughs over the last few months, a crew of editors poking and prodding, countless major and minor edits, and for those of you who have already downloaded version 11 of the MEAP (released last week), you will notice that it has taken a pass through the typesetters. This pass has resulted in a level of spit and polish that I couldn't imagine a year ago when the first MEAP went live.

There are still a few issues to be fixed in the week since version 11 of the MEAP was released, but they are getting cleaned up as I type this.

To commemorate this final push and to give everyone a chance to learn more about their data, Manning is offering 50% off Redis in Action, Lucene in Action 2nd Edition, and Machine Learning in Action. How do you get 50% off? Follow those links and enter dotd0501au on checkout.

When I find time in the coming weeks, you can look forward to two blog posts. The first on Steganography in Python, which I presented as a lightning talk on April 1 at the Southern California Python Interest Group meetup. And in the second, I'll talk about the whys, whats, and hows of building rom, a Redis Object Mapper in Python.
