Book Sales / Discounts / Coupons Thread

When is Phoenix in Action going to be completed? I think the 12th chapter Building an API is the most important one.
@geo

Edit: I think the whole Part-3 is important. Building an API, getting the real time updates, etc.

When is Phoenix in Action going to be completed?

I completed the drafts of the chapters a few weeks ago and have been busy with revisions over the past few weeks. We are hoping to have it go to the production department on Friday.

Wow great titles. No I can finally convince my bank to move from their bulky and expensive servers to cheap and expendable android phones. I bet their apps would scale better too :grinning:

Great. BTW, we have many good books on Elixir, but to me, that one is The Book. Clear, straight to the point, and with plenty of good examples. Great pick :+1:

Why did you put a captcha in your checkout page? So that attackers wouldn’t be able to send you their credit card data? Anyway, it seems I am not human enough to order today!

Thank you for mentioning that, I forgot to mention that, thought I was already on Manning’s sales page. :slight_smile:

Manning deal of the day: $20 for any ebook (which is equivalent to 50% off for the two elixir books below). Today only.

Elixir in Action(2nd)
Phoenix in Action

I’m currently reading the Elixir in Action ebook, and I like the explanations of how things work under the hood, for instance:

Rebinding [a variable] doesn’t mutate the existing memory location. It reserves new memory and reassigns the symbolic name to the new location.

NOTE: You should always keep in mind that data is immutable. Once a memory location is occupied with data, it can’t be modified until it’s released. But variables can be rebound, which makes them point to a different memory location. Thus, variables are mutable, but the data they point to is immutable.

I’m also reading the Phoenix in Action ebook, and I really liked the section on Ecto changesets.

Okay, now the deal has gotten better(?): you can get the print version and the ebook for $25. Today only.

Maybe tomorrow, they’ll throw in a Macbook for $30. :slight_smile:
