(from PragPub > July 2009)

I visited PragPub for some ale and found some interesting magazine articles.

The articles on Clojure are welcome. I would enjoy being exposed to other cutting edge programming languages in the future.

I’m not sure how a magazine provides more value than publishing the same content to a blog, but I will continue reading each month to see what becomes of this experiment.

Page 22 contains the statement about Progmatic Bookshelf books: “And if you buy one, you’ve got them all: you have purchased a license to the content.” This statement occurred in the context of electronic book formats, but content is content, whether it is electronic or printed.

I am often bothered by the fact that publishers require us to purchase content in both printed and electronic forms. Isn’t the content identical?

(from PragPub > PragPub in Kindle Collections)

Did something happen to PragPub between Issue 23, May 2011 and Issue 24, June 2011? My Kindle is able to add PragPubs to collections up to Issue 23. The three issues beginning with Issue 24 are not found by my Kindle when attempting to add items to a collection. What happened?

(from Agile Web Development with Rails 4 > Ch.10 combining items in cart)

The migration is required for instances where multiple duplicate items were added before the quantity was added to line_items. If you had two separate line_items that each had Coffeescript before the quantity was added, the cart would end up with two separate line_items for Coffeescript–one having a quantity of 1 and the other with 1 + however many were added after the quantity enhancement.
