New Packt Courses for August 2019

//New Packt Courses for August 2019

It’s August – here in the U.K, sadly, it feels distinctly Autumnal, making me wonder if it’s worth just starting hibernation now. If you’re with me and fancy getting the most from the oncoming shorter days, check out our newest titles.


This month’s top picks in data are two products that will help extend your skills in two of the most popular programming languages in the world. Hands-On Web Scraping with Python is a book that offers you practical guidance on how to collect and process data from the web, while Deep Learning with Java is a video course that provides an extensive look at how you can use Java’s pretty neat deep learning ecosystem – including tools like ND4J and DL4J – to build your own deep learning solutions.

We know Rust is well-loved. Every StackOverflow survey in recent years has shown that Rust developers are the most satisfied with their language of choice. Despite its popularity, it hasn’t seen rapid growth  – however, we think the next 12 months or so are going to see the continued rise of Rust. With our Rust Projects video course you can give Rust a try yourself – or, if you’re already a convert, put your skills to the test.

The rise of Rust is all about performance. Of course, code performance has always been important, but as applications become more demanding and complex, it’s absolutely vital. Python Clean Coding video course will show you how to unlock a more powerful and performant Python that will give your applications an edge.
