Check back each Friday for a quick digest of articles, resources, events, promotions, and other goodies worth a first or second look on InformIT. 

The IT List: What You Missed This Week on InformIT [12/13/2013]  

1. Hot Deal: The Addison-Wesley Signature Series provides readers with practical and authoritative information on the latest trends in modern technology for computer professionals. The series is based on one simple premise: great books come from great authors. Titles in the series are personally chosen by expert advisors and world-class authors in their own right – Martin Fowler, Kent Beck, and Mike Cohn.
