PragProg Fashion Forward Sale
May 26, 2020

No matter where you live, you’ve probably heard something along the lines of, “If you don’t like the weather here, just wait a minute.” You can probably say the same thing about web development—if you don’t like the current state of it, just give it a month or so.

Don’t have a month to spare? No problem. We’ve put together a collection of books that’ll show you where it’s been, where it is, and where it’s going.

Use coupon code Web2020 to save an unprecedented 50% on any of the following titles:

Functional Web Development with Elixir, OTP, and Phoenix
Build web applications in a radically different way, with a back end that holds application state. Using persistent Phoenix Channel connections instead of HTTP’s request-response, you can create a full application in distinct, decoupled layers. You’re going to love this way of building web apps!

Web Development with ReasonML
ReasonML is a new syntax for OCaml, a battle-tested and mature programming language. Designed to be familiar to JavaScript programmers, ReasonML code compiles to highly readable JavaScript. Harness the power of a functional language while retaining the best features of JavaScript to produce concise, fast, type-safe programs.

Design and Build Great Web APIs
APIs are transforming the business world at an increasing pace. Gain the essential skills needed to quickly design, build, and deploy quality web APIs that are robust, reliable, and resilient. Go from initial design through prototyping and implementation to deployment of mission-critical APIs for your organization.

Build Websites with Hugo
Rediscover how fun web development can be with Hugo, the static site generator and web framework that lets you build content sites quickly, using the skills you already have. Use HTML templates and Markdown to build static sites that you can host anywhere, letting you use the skills you already have to build your next website.

Agile Web Development with Rails 6
Learn Rails the way the Rails core team recommends it. If you’re new to Rails, you’ll get step-by-step guidance. If you’re an experienced developer, get the comprehensive, insider information you need for the latest version of Ruby on Rails. The new edition of this award-winning classic is completely updated for Rails 6 and Ruby 2.6.

Programming WebAssembly with Rust
WebAssembly fulfills the long-awaited promise of web technologies: fast code, type-safe at compile time, execution in the browser, on embedded devices, or anywhere else. Combining WebAssembly’s portable, high-performance modules with Rust’s safety and power is a perfect development combination.

The Way of the Web Tester
This book is for everyone who needs to test the web. As a tester, you’ll automate your tests. As a developer, you’ll build more robust solutions. And as a team, you’ll gain a vocabulary and a means to coordinate how to write and organize automated tests for the web. Together, we’ll go through everything you’ll need to start writing your own tests.
