My eBook Free During AngleBrackets

My book about my life as a software developer (The Opinionated Software Developer: What Twenty-Five Years of Slinging Code Has Taught Me) is available for free until October 31st. Consequently this is same the time I am at AngleBrackets  (part of DevIntersection) in Las Vegas talking about Mobile Web, PhoneGap and Designing for Developers.

If you haven’t gotten the book yet, here is your chance for free! This has been the book I wanted to write for years now. Don't look for code in this book (ok, there are exactly two lines of code) - but instead I am writing about what being a software developer has meant to me. Hopefully some of the advice and observations will help you in your own career too!

Get it here:

Would love to read it, but would need a EPUB or PDF format! Any alternatives to Kindle available?

I got my free copy,

I took your JavaScript for C# Developers course from Pluralsight and it helped me better understand the JS language.

Thanks for sharing.

Really want to read this. Is there anywhere to buy a PDF? (Not really interested in the other formats).

Not really. Kindle or ePub (see main book page.)
