Celebrate Hacktoberfest with 30% off

My friends at The Pragmatic Bookshelf want to help you get the most out of Hacktoberfest, so they’re offering 30% off of two open source titles. Use promo code HACKTOBERFEST23 at checkout on pragprog.com to save on Forge Your Future With Open Source and Program Management for Open Source Projects.

If you’re new to open source, you’ll love VM Brasseur’s Forge Your Future With Open Source. Here’s what I said about it in 2018:

It’s a book I wish I had years ago when I was first starting in open source. Brasseur covers understanding your motivations for contributing, determining requirements for a project you’ll contribute to, finding a project that matches those requirements, and getting started with your first contribution.

Project maintainers will benefit from my Program Management for Open Source Projects. With chapters on bug triage (PDF excerpt), communication, and process design, it will help you scale up to handle a wave of Hacktoberfest contributions.

This offer is only valid for ebooks and audio books ordered on the pragprog.com website through October 2023. It does not apply to physical books or orders placed through other sites.

P.S. If you subscribed to the Duck Alignment Academy newsletter, you’d know about this already.
