Pragmatic Programmers on the iPhone

It appears that my favourite technical publishers, The Pragmatic Programmers now offer their books in specialised formats for mobile devices, in addition to the PDF format.

This means that I can download my PragProg books to my iPhone and read them conveniently (using the Stanza e-book reader). Best of all – if you’ve bought a PDF edition before, the mobile formats are free. Thanks, Andy and Dave!

Not all of the books have been converted yet – out of the 12 eBooks I’ve bought, 5 have been converted so far – but the rest will come over time.

Downloading the books is easy: if you’ve got Stanza on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you simply go to pragprog.com on your iPhone/iPod Touch, login, and download your books (they may need to be regenerated first). Then you read them in Stanza. And I have to say that the conversion looks pretty darn good.

My name is Robert Watkins. I am a software developer and have been for over 18 years now. I currently work for people, but my opinions here are in no way endorsed by them (which is cool; their opinions aren’t endorsed by me either). My main professional interests are in Java development, using Agile methods, with a historical focus on building web based applications. I’m also a Mac-fan and love my iPhone, which I’m currently learning how to code for. I live and work in Brisbane, Australia, but I grew up in the Northern Territory, and still find Brisbane too cold (after 16 years here). I’m married, with two children and one cat. My politics are socialist in tendency, my religious affiliation is atheist (aka “none of the above”), my attitude is condescending and my moral standing is lying down.
