[vox] [fwd] O'Reilly Launches PDF Guides

----- Forwarded message from Marsee Henon -----

Good. Fast. Cheap. O'Reilly Launches PDF Guides

As part of O'Reilly Media's commitment to delivering vital technology
information to people who need it, when they need it, O'Reilly is
launching an ongoing series of PDF publications to address cutting edge
technologies. O'Reilly's PDF guides are in-depth, immediate, timely, and
authoritative. Readers can purchase and download the PDFs through the
O'Reilly online store, with no restrictions on the ability to save, copy,
or print them.

The advantages to readers are numerous. O'Reilly authors can disseminate
crucial information as the need arises, without having to wait for enough
material to fill an entire book. Production time is reduced dramatically,
giving IT professionals and others immediate access to the knowledge they
want. Plus, readers can easily search the text, copy and paste handy bits
of code into their applications, and take the PDF with them even when
they're offline. But most importantly, readers won't have to compromise in
their pursuit of timely information--these PDFs provide the high-quality
content for which O'Reilly has come to be known.

This month's PDF offerings are available now:

"Build Tag Clouds in Perl and PHP" by Jim Bumgardner
First popularized by the web sites Flickr, Technorati, and del.icio.us,
these amorphous clumps of words now appear on a slew of web sites as
visual evidence of their membership in the elite corps of "Web 2.0." This
PDF analyzes what is and isn't a tag cloud, offers design tips for using
them effectively, and then shows how to collect tags and display them in
the tag cloud format. Scripts are provided in Perl and PHP.
ISBN: 0-596-52794-2, 46 pages, $9.99 US, $12.99 CAN

"Web Services on Rails" by Kevin Marshall
In recent years, web services have become increasingly useful to smaller
web site developers.  Thanks to standards like SOAP and XML-RPC as well as
frameworks such as Ruby on Rails, developers can easily create web service
clients and servers with fewer errors. This guide looks at how Ruby on
Rails makes building web service clients and servers simple and fun, with
plenty of working examples and code details so you can see just how
everything works.
ISBN: 0-596-52796-9, 32 pages, $9.99 US, $12.99 CA

"Atlas UpdatePanel Control" by Bertrand Le Roy and Matt Gibbs
The key to making ASP.NET applications more responsive to user input is
the UpdatePanel control. In this tutorial, you'll learn from the experts:
Bertrand Le Roy, UpdatePanel control's architect and developer, and Matt
Gibbs, Atlas dev team manager. This PDF document contains all you need to
get started implementing AJAX functionality in existing ASP.NET
ISBN: 0-596-52747-0, 56 pages, $9.99 US, $12.99 CA

"Search Engine Optimization" by Harold Davis
SEO--short for Search Engine Optimization--is the art, craft, and science
of driving web traffic to web sites. Whether your web site depends on
broad, general traffic, or high-quality, targeted traffic, this PDF has
the tools and information you need to draw more traffic to your site, and
build your bottom line. You’ll learn how to effectively use PageRank and
Google itself--effective use of SEO means understanding how Google works:
how to boost placement in Google search results, how not to offend Google,
and how best to use paid Google programs. You’ll also learn how to best
organize your web pages and web sites, apply SEO analysis tools, establish
effective SEO best practices, and much more.
