Support me — buy my books

If you’d like to support me and my work here at this blog, you could buy one of my books at LeanPub, or you can buy me a book from my Amazon wish list.

My books are as cheap as possible according to the amount of information in it. That is because I write books because I like to share my knowledge and would support myself a bit from it — however, I do not like expensive books. That’s why I’ve chosen LeanPub because they seem to make this possible with their infrastructure and pricing policy: I set a minimum price for a book. However, you can support me by paying a more significant amount for a book.

You can choose between:

XML processing and website scraping in Java is a book from some of my posts from this blog with some added value: I created better performance measurement and narrowed down the time differences to the core of XMLBeam and JSoup. And I made the whole application faster with Java 8 and parallelism.

Website scraping with Python is a book about the same topic like “XML processing and website scraping in Java” however here I focus on website scraping with Python. For this, I introduce the tools BeautifulSoup and Scrapy and make runtime comparison of the two. And at the end, I include a complete project implemented with both tools.

CDI is in Hungarian and is about the Contexts and dependency injection in the Java EE 7 architecture — and how you can use it in an SE environment too.

Python 3 in Anger is a Python 3.6 tutorial. It starts from the beginning and works itself (and the reader) through the development with Python 3.6. It has a lot of exercises and examples where the solutions explain themselves.
