While not strictly about game development, Humble are running a ebook bundle of Unix and Linux Books by O’Reilly Press.  As always the bundle is broken into tiers, where if you buy a higher dollar tier, you get all of theirs below it.

The tiers of this bundle include the following books:

1$ Tier

  • Shell Scripting
  • Linux Device Drivers
  • Regular Expressions
  • Grep
  • GNU Emacs
  • UNIX Power Tools

8$ Tier

  • Linux Pocket Guide

As with all Humble Bundles, you can decide how your money is allocated.  If you use this link you can direct it towards the publisher, Humble, Charity or if you so choose GFS (and thanks if you do!).

No video for this bundle as it’s a bit far to far from game development (although would certainly be useful for server programming as an example), also in an attempt to prevent Humble burnout! ;)
