“Effortless E-commerce with PHP and MySQL (2nd Edition)” Giveaway

May 5, 2014
The Yii Book If you like my writing on the Yii framework, you'll love "The Yii Book"!

Approximately 1,000 years ago (or 5 months), I promised to give away copies of my “Effortless E-commerce with PHP and MySQL (2nd Edition)” book to those people that have purchased “The Yii Book“. The only problem is I had to create the code to do that. Which I now have. And it may even work.

If you’re interested in possibly winning a copy, log into your account. Then click the “Giveaway” link that appears in the navigation sidebar. If you can’t recall your password, use the reset link.

Pesky details of this giveaway…

You have until June 2nd to enter. You only need to enter once. In fact, you can only enter once. On June 2nd, I’ll pick the winners based upon an algorithm that favors those that purchased “The Yii Book” earlier (i.e., I’ll try to reward those that have been waiting the longest for completion of “The Yii Book”). I have 20 copies to giveaway. I’ll sign them, and I’ll cover shipping.

Understand that I have 20 copies to giveaway and there are up to 2500 (-ish) possible entrants. And I’m going to give away more copies to those that bought “The Yii Book” early. DO NOT BUY “The Yii Book” TODAY IN THE HOPES OF WINNING THIS OTHER BOOK. The odds are not with you. The primary purpose of this giveaway is to give something back to those that believed in me and my Yii book experiment, and to serve as a small “mea culpa” for how long it’s taken me to complete.

If you have any questions, let me know. In the meantime, I’ll be working on Chapter 21.
