Win a free book at the February Python Book Contest

This month is a special month. It’s not because of Valentines day or even the exciting day where we see groundhogs. No, this month is special because I’m have a book contest where you, the reader, get to win something free for doing absolutely nothing more than posting a comment saying that you want one of the several books I have available in the contest.

So without getting into boring details I’ll keep this short. I’ve been reviewing a lot of books lately and I think it’s time to get some books into people’s hands to enjoy themselves. This month the giveaways are all Python oriented.

So, all you have to do is take a look at the following titles and post a comment here saying that you want one of them. At the end of the month two readers will be chosen via a random list sorting python script I’ve whipped up for just this purpose. You will then get an email from the publisher who will send a brand new e-copy of the book free of charge. I’ll also be reviewing these books at a later date for those that do not win the contest.

    Two of my great geek loves are MySQL and Python so I had high expectations for “MySQL for Python.” Maybe my expectations were too high but I was disappointed. I get data from 100 replication servers and encounter tons of operational exceptions and was looking for some pointers on how to handle the exceptions and mitigate or recover from failed processes. Oh well, the stuff I’ve developed works good enough.

    Anyway, I’m quite pleased with the wealth of Python support in the MySQL community. Now… If someone would just rewrite MaatKit in Python.

    Oh yeah, I really, REALLY need a copy of the “Python 2.6 Graphics Cookbook.”
