It might sound like a truism but it’s a reality for many software developers: change is the one constant in the tech industry.
This can pose a real challenge as it becomes tougher and tougher to not only manage and deliver the projects you need to, but also to keep your skills up to date and take full advantage of the tooling opportunities that are out there.
This is why Packt exists. With open source software feasting on the world, thousands of developers depend on Packt to provide up to date and practical insights and guidance to help them not just manage the restlessness of the industry, but also to successfully leverage it.

Every developer learns differently – Packt makes sure they support the needs of individuals so they can all play a part in vibrant and ever-curious tech communities.
