I am a big fan of Packt Publishing (http://www.packtpub.com) and their model that supports print and e-books and keeps a repository of your purchased books in your account on their site - so you can always get a copy of your e-book if you lose it.
Packt Publishing is celebrating their 10 year anniversary with a good deal.
From June 26th through July 5th, Packt is offering all of its eBooks and Videos at just $10 each for any title!
If you need some Drupal or other tech books, this is a great deal.

We'll help you select tickets in the core issue queue at https://drupal.org/project/issues/drupal to work on so that together as a group we can move Drupal 8 closer to a release date. See https://groups.drupal.org/node/332998 for more details.

We'll be updating the GLADCamp.org website, including descriptions of the non-profit summit and venue and hotel information, and cataloging any remaining bugs in the issue queue at https://drupal.org/project/issues/gladcamp
Open Lab Hours for the Module Development Boot Camp
This weekend is the last best chance for attendees of the Module Development Boot Camp to participate in open lab hours at Droplabs. The boot camp instructors will be on hand to help boot camp attendees finish their class projects and get them published to Drupal.org.

That's right, we're also doing a mentored Drupal training! If you're interested in learning more about Drupal, site building, theming, module development, change management, or anything else, come with your laptop or tablet and a pair of headphones.
