Almost There: 30% Off jQuery in Action!
December 18th, 2007
As you might know, I’m putting the final touches on jQuery in Action, an introductory book on all things jQuery for Manning Publications. I’ve spent the last half a year diligently plugging away at it, along with my co-author Bear Bibeault, and we’re finally hitting the home stretch.
It’s taken a lot of time, and focus, and while it’s been a great experience, I’m also looking forward to being able to once again put my full energy into the various Open Source projects I’m involved in (including jQuery, of course). We’re reviewing typeset PDF’s of what looks to be just about ready to print — there’s light at the end of this tunnel!
The book is set to print in early to mid-January; as a final push before publication, Manning is offering 30% off until December 31st, with the code JQM30. Though the book is also available on Amazon.com, among other places, Manning is the only place you can also get the e-book, which at least for me, is really important.
Thanks to everyone who’s been there for me in this crazy busy time, and for everyone who’s had to grin and bear it while my focus was split. I’m almost done!
