Early congratulations, A Book Apart! That’s a hell of a milestone. I’m quite sure I’ve read more A Book Apart books than any other tech book publisher.
Katel LeDu runs the ship over there, and she’s given me very special pack of discount codes that will get you my book, Practical SVG, for free. So now it’s my job to get you those codes. There are only 10 of them—not enough for everyone. So I’m going to do some low-down, dirty-rotten, absolutely-shameless cross-marketing: I’m going to give them to the first 10 people who are CodePen PRO who email me at [email protected]. CodePen PRO is only $12/month if you pay monthly or $8/month if you pay yearly, and this discount code is worth $14, so in the end, you get both and save a few bucks. If you’re already PRO, cool, thanks, you still qualify.
You know what’s cool about Practical SVG? Even though I wrote it 4 years ago, SVG just doesn’t change that fast, so I’d say 90%+ I wouldn’t even change in a re-write. If you’re just learning about SVG as a front-end developer, it’s a fine choice.
In addition to my conniving scheme above, if you just really would like this book and have zero budget for it, or know someone else in that situation, you can also email me about that and we’ll work it out. I just may have a few copies around here I could get you. Hey, I’m trying to make money off you but I ain’t trying to lock away knowledge from anyone that really needs it.
