I’ve found another extra copy of Learning Perl, 6th Edition, and I’m going to give it away. In previous giveaways I’ve been creative, sometimes asking people to send me a postcard, donate to a charity, or something else. I’m not going to give people a book without getting something from them.
This time, I’ll send this book to someone who wants to replace their current Learning Perl or other beginning Perl book. Post a picture of yourself with the book you’d like to replace and link to this blog post, along with a short explanation why you need to replace your Perl book. The picture has to be available to anyone without logging in to any sort of account, and licensed under a share-alike agreement so I can repost my favorite photos. Don’t hide your picture in Facebook!
A photo that Schwern might submit if he wanted a free book
By the end of July, I’ll choose the picture that I like the most and send that person a free Learning Perl signed by me.
I might favor some items in your photo, and give even more favor to photos that combine those elements.
- Famous landmarks
- Scenery used in a movie (leaning toward New Zealand here)
- Very large beers
- Military matériel
