Hablando de Apress. He registrado el grupo con ellos, no se si alguien quiere
escribir unos criticos etc. Abajo teneis el mail que me mandaron, parecido a
la oferta que nos dío O'Reilly cuando registramos el año pasado:

Thanks again for recently registering your group with Apress. We work
proactively on behalf of all registered user groups. For example, we are
happy to sponsor group events and parties with books and T-shirts. And
when groups request a local author to speak at a meeting, Apress tries
to fill the request.
Similarly, user groups are incredibly valuable and helpful to Apress,
because they help spread the word about what Apress is and what Apress
does. Example: when I update one contact person about Apress happenings,
I simultaneously reach many people, by word of mouth among the group.
In the past year we've published 3 essential Perl titles, including:
* Perl 6 Now
* Randal Schwartz's Perls of Wisdom
* Beginning Perl, Second Edition
And throughout 2005, we'll continue to publish titles that are crucial
to your continuing Perl education, like:
* Pro Perl (http://www.apress.com/book/bookDisplay.html?bID=392),
* Pro Perl Debugging
* Pro Perl Parsing
We'll be happy to send you copies of these books to review and to give
away as meeting prizes. In return, we simply encourage all book winners
to write a thoughtful review, and post it to a favorite site or blog.
Book reviews enhance discussion at group meetings and bolster content on
group websites. We've posted review suggestions onto our website, and
you're welcome to link them to your own site
(http://www.apress.com/userGroups/writeareview.html). And please let me
know if you'd like to post our company logo on your site.
For your meetings, we're happy to provide additional Apress freebies
like T-shirts, sampler CDs, roadmaps, and title lists. And year-round,
groups can take advantage of a 25%-off discount on all current Apress
Please contact me directly if you have questions or ideas, and I look
forward to working with you this year!
