No Starch Press is a leading name in computing books. Focusing on open source/Linux, security, hacking, programming, alternative operating systems, and science and math, their books appeal to technophiles and novices alike. Ensuring straightforward presentation and plenty of passion from the authors, readers appreciate their fearless approach to the complex world of technology — this having earned them accreditation from prestigious Press Titles.

Elektor are now proud to be stocking three No Starch Press Books for your entertainment and enjoyment. Firstly, we have the GNU Make book. With GNU being the most widely used build automation tool, its challenging nature and terse language can be enough to put anyone to task, often leaving unsolved problems behind and thus leaving GNU make’s vast potential untapped. The GNU Make Book demystifies GNU make and shows you how to use its best features and let it reach its full potential. The book not only contains a fast and thorough run down of the basics, but also an insight in to more advanced capabilities — you will be an expert in no time!

The second book we have on offer is Automate the Boring Stuff with Python. This title teaches you how to use Python to write programs that will do in minutes all the tedious and boring tasks that would have taken you hours to do by hand, no prior programming experience required! Once the basics have been mastered, you will be shown how to create Python programs that effortlessly and simply perform a variety of tasks such as: searching for text in a file or multiple files, creating and updating files and folders, updating and formatting Excel spreadsheets, and much more. Not a title to be missed out on.

Finally, we have Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred. This is a title that all the family can enjoy, and is a book packed with fun craft and toy-making projects for those on a budget. Part 1 contains child-friendly projects such as the Lock-N-Latch Treasure chest, Part 2 is devoted to homemade musical instruments and Part 3 showcases a variety of moving toys. Each project costs just $10 or less to make and is suitable for all abilities and experience levels. A must-have for keeping the children quiet on those long rainy days, mind you it can also keep the adults just as quiet!

So don’t miss out on these three No Starch Press titles, and get them today on the Elektor Store.
