    There's a book (or software) promotion just about every week at CodeRanch. Just ask a question in the appropriate forum and you're eligible to win a copy of the book (or license).  Check the book promotions schedule

    Upcoming promotions in November:
  • Grokking Artificial Intelligence Algorithms (November 3rd)
  •       Rishal Hurbans
          This book is a fully-illustrated and interactive tutorial guide to
          the different approaches and algorithms that underpin AI. You'll
          use each algorithm in practice with creative coding
          exercises—including building a maze puzzle game, performing
          diamond data analysis, and even exploring drone material

  • Tiny Python Projects (November 10th)
  •       Ken Youens-Clark
          Tiny Python Projects takes you from amateur to Pythonista as you
          create 22 bitesize programs. Each tiny project teaches you a new
          programming concept, from the basics of lists and strings right
          through to regular expressions and randomness. Along the way
          you'll also discover how testing can make you a better programmer
          in any language.

  • Spring Quickly (November 17th)
  •       Laurentiu Spilca
          Spring Quickly introduces you to Java development with Spring by
          concentrating on the core concepts you'll use in every application
          you build. You'll learn how to refactor an existing application to
          Spring, how to use Spring tools to make SQL database requests and
          REST calls, and how to secure your projects with Spring Security.

    This month's book promotion winners:
  • Machine Learning Bookcamp
  •       Winners: Randy Tong, Tony Romano, paul nisset and R. Wayne Arenz
  • Deep Reinforcement Learning in Action
  •       Winners: Don Horrell, Jack Donahey, Randy Tong and Frank Mi
  • Zero to AI
  •       Winners: D.J. Quavern, Frank Mi, Salil Wadnerkar and Randy Tong
