Just received the Starling books! Grab one! by Thibault Imbert

Starling bookWhat a cool surprise today, I received the print copies of the Starling book. For recall, the book has been available for a year now at O'Reilly's website as a downloadable ebook.

I read lots of digital books but I still enjoy reading stuff the old school way, I am sure you do too. Adobe ordered some hard copies that we will be able to distribute at some events. It feels great to physically hold it! For info, this printed version has the latest updates I added last month that I mentioned here.

I thought it would be cool to give a few free copies, if you want to have it or have colleagues that would be interested. The first twenty comments will receive a free copy. Just put your real email when commenting so that I can reach out to you ;) They are all gone!

Have a good reading!

    Such an awesome book. Grabbed the digital copy back when it was first released and it was pretty informative. I learned a lot from it. Been hoping it would be available in a physical copy so I can add it to my collection.

    Congrats Thibault! I didn’t knew this book was going to be printed, I’ve downloaded the ebook versions months ago, started to read it but then work took all my free time. I hope to finish reading it soon

    Nice! I read the first version, still haven’t got the time to read the updated one. Any plans of finishing “What can you do with bytes”? That was an awesome idea, real shame it’s been idling for so long…
