spaCy Blue Forest
Round Robin's newest author and illustrator, Helena Steckmeister, has created a beautiful book just in time for the holidays.
The cats need help to resolve a nasty feud with the birds, since neither speaks the other's language. Luckily, a specialist is in the forest to facilitate communication. Will they be able to help?
Learn about natural language processing (NLP) and analysis through the eyes of a true beginner. Created by the makers of spaCy, a popular NLP library for Python.
A Gentle Introduction to OpenSearch
Learn about different storage technologies, including OpenSearch, Redshift, Kinesis, and S3, through the eyes of a young fox family.
This story is a special one to me. It captures my own experience as a parent who is currently dealing with two picky little eaters, and my own growth as an engineer, writer, and illustrator.
The digital version is free to read and introduces some new elements that I haven't included in my stories before. You'll find games, sound-effects, music, and more.
Special thanks for Amazon for giving me this opportunity.
Hope you enjoy it,

Gently Down the Stream
A Gentle Introduction to Apache Kafka
Original illustrations, beginner friendly explanations of Kafka, and a whole lot of otters. Need I say more?
Gently Down the Stream is a gentle introduction to stream processing and Apache Kafka. A group of otters discover that they can use a giant river to communicate with each other. As more otters move into the forest, they must learn how to adapt their system to handle the increased activity of the forest.
Pairing whimsical imagery with lucid explanations of stream processing concepts, this book will captivate beginners of all ages. Adults will appreciate the no-frills explanation of several key Kafka concepts, while children and non-technical adults will enjoy the story, the original artwork, and the loads of cute otters that live in these pages.
