About Sensio Labs Books
Open-Source is our Passion
Sensio Labs books is a business-unit of Sensio Labs, the Open-Source experts company. Our books are focused on Open-Source projects and technologies.
We are working with Open-Source technologies since 1998, and we are also part of the Open-Source community. Sensio Labs is the main sponsor of several major Open-Source projects, like symfony, Doctrine, or Swift Mailer.
Our story started with the documentation of the symfony framework (symfony-project.org) four years ago. The book was published by APress. Based on this sucessful experience (The Definitive Guide to symfony), we decided to become a publisher. Our books are written only by Open-Source experts to guarantee a high level quality.
Our Books are Open-Source
We strongly believe in the Open-Source movement, and so we think our books deserve to be released under an Open-Source license. That's why you can read all our books online for... free! You can even print them if you want. But keep in mind that you may have a better quality if you order the book. Buying our books also means you give us the opportunity to publish more books in the future.
Our Books are printed on-demand
We want to share our environmental commitment with our readers. That is why all our books are printed on-demand. Best of all, the book quality is the very same as books printed with the old fashion way. We work with the best on-demand distributor in the world so that you do not have to wait to receive your book.
Our Books are always updated
You can read our books online for free, but there is more with an Open-Source book! For each book, the original document is freely available: our readers may then become daily contributors to improve the manuscript. This way, the quality of our books keeps getting better.
Our Books are available in several languages
We do not speak many languages, but we have readers all over the world! If the book you are looking for is not available in your mother language yet and you wish to translate it, please contact us. Thanks to the Open-Source community, we are already able to provide some books in more than five different languages.
