This might seem a bit odd, but I’m going to write a plug here for an amazing WordPress related eBook. I happened to be doing some research around the net for some of our upcomping screencasts and tutorials when I happened upon this very reasonably priced eBook. Given that it is co-authored by the one-and-only Collis Ta’eed of Envato fame, I thought $29 was well worth it. But it gets better. I thought the site was worth folowing, so I signed up for their email list and BAM! I got a $10 coupon code in my email. Once I got the book, I was totally stoked by not only the great content, but the rediculous aount of source files that accompany the eBook. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a book only to find that the code listings aren’t accurate. I also found it easy to dive right in to the eBook due to Collis’ easy to follow writing style. The code listings could have used a better graphical treatment in my mind, but seeing as they give you fully coded source files, I just opened them up in TextMate and followed along. I liked that they covered the entire design process of a WordPress theme, from PhotoShop to final code. Too bad they didn’t plug our Favicon Generator plugin on page 100! I highly recommend this eBook for WordPress designers and developers, both seasoned professionals and those just starting out. It’s a great tool to have in your arsenal.
Just so you all know this isn’t a paid advertisement, but if you buy the book through this site, we’ll get a little commission.
