What customers are saying about Safari Books Online
We’ve found Safari Books Online to have much more current, comprehensive and quality content than its competitors—there’s really no comparison. Our IT group is delighted with the material that’s available to them through our subscription to Safari Books Online, and they are really happy that the website is so intuitive and easy to use.
Our employees use Safari books and videos to support both just-in-time and formal learning. The depth and breadth of Nuance products and solutions and variety of industry verticals we operate in requires our technical employees to design, develop and support using a wide array of technologies. For this reason, our employees really take advantage of the depth of content available on Safari Books Online. The choice of whether to use a video or book to meet a need is very much an individual decision; however, we do find that folks looking to learn something from scratch like to use the videos.
The IT job market requires a commitment to learning new and evolving technologies. Safari Books Online gives me the best value for access to the kind of vital technical information that allows me to keep a highly marketable skillset.
Safari Books Online is my real brain. The thing in my skull is just a counterweight for my torso.
By the way, you have changed how I do programming. If I don't find an answer to a programming question immediately on the internet and/or if I need an in-depth explanation, I search your library and can read several answers if I'm so inclined. You have saved me hours of work besides the fact that I can read any book I want without buying it and without cluttering up my shelves anymore. I just wish I could zap the books I already have from my 30+ year career into your library.
What customers are saying about Creative Edge
Creative Edge is fantastic! I use it frequently to learn new technical concepts and programs that help me to advance my knowledge and support my professional expertise. The small monthly fee, which is non-binding, is highly affordable. I highly recommend Creative Edge to any Creative Professional who needs a little or a lot of help, whether you want to advance your creative career or would like to enter the field as a beginner. In a few days I learned how to update and manage a Dreamweaver-developed Web site for a non-profit organization which had been unable to update their site in over a year. I COULD NEVER HAVE COME UP TO SPEED THAT QUICKLY WITHOUT THE VIDEOS AND BOOKS AVAILABLE AT CREATIVE EDGE!
In this ever changing world of technology and the commercial arts, it’s often hard to keep up with knowledge and training to keep us on the cutting edge. Its often expensive to do so, too. After combing through countless bookstores over the past few months looking for up to date books on videography, I stumbled upon CreativeEdge. I'm stunned. Here are all the books and videos that I need to learn the new tech skills needed to stay current. And – it’s all affordable and easy to use. I love it!! The first book I read paid for the monthly subscription already. Nice job, guys.
As a professional graphic production artist with over 20yrs in the biz, I've needed to learn many computer applications. Someone in my line of work can easily spend $1000+/year on books and video training. Fortunately, Safari books has created "Creative Edge". With "Creative Edge" I'm able to spend a quarter of what I was spending annually before, and be able to access ALL of the previous books AND all the new books. Even better, I get access to rough cuts which means I'm getting the books before they even hit the store shelves. I also like that I can access the book content on my mobile devices such as my iPod Touch, laptop, as well as my desktop when I'm in the office. The best part is that all content is available in the cloud via any browser at anytime. The way Creative Edge works is very flexible. You can search by content using keywords or by choosing the subject, product or brand. You can also create favorites and bookmarks for a fast return to your reading material the next time you return to the site. The search tool is very effective in that you can search full-text to narrow down your topics and even exclude material of previous versions. Once you have chosen a book to review, the presentation of the material is very efficient. In fact it's better than having the printed book in front of you. Given that Creative Edge has only been around for less a year, it's a very robust site.
Just discovered your site (via a LinkedIn announcement). I've just started exploring, but I can see it is just fantastic. Thanks so much for putting all this stuff online in one easy to find place.
We thoroughly enjoyed the training that the Creative Edge platform offered us. The wide range of video tutorials were and immense help in getting all of our administrative and marketing staff up to speed on creative software in a timely manner.
