Apress publishes the Pro Drupal Development book.
“Apress was founded by authors Gary Cornell and Dan Appleman. Its original name was Author’s Press, shortened to APress, then Apress. In 2003, Apress purchased much of the intellectual property of the designer-oriented publisher Friends of ED. Apress books, for the most part, are characterized by a uniform yellow and black design. Topics covered relate largely to programming issues, on both proprietary and open source platforms, although hardware hacking is also a theme. Authors include Andrew Troelsen, Andy Budd, Rob Harrop and Jan Machacek, Michael A. Banks, Keir Thomas, Jessica Livingston, Bob Walsh, and Joel Spolsky. Their books are distributed worldwide by Springer-Verlag. In 2007 it was announced that Apress is now fully part of Springer, where prior to this Springer had had a minority stake1, and in 2009 Apress’ offices in Berkeley, California closed and the business moved to Springer’s headquarters in New York.” – quoted from Wikipedia.com
