Pragmatic & Educative Team Up
July 22, 2020

With so many factors contributing to separation these days, we think it’s the perfect opportunity to bridge the gaps and forge new alliances. And while we’ve got some big plans for new content and new concepts with our friends at Educative, we’ve kicked things off with material from a few of our existing books.

If you don’t already own the book versions of Practical Security, Simplifying JavaScript, or Programming Kotlin and you’d like to try learning the material in a whole new format, now’s the perfect time. Through August 6th, use coupon code “PragmaticLimited” when making your purchase on Educative to get a 75% discount off each course. Want the book, too? Use coupon code “TeamUp” to get 35% off each title from pragprog.com.

Practical Security: Simple Practices for Defending Your Systems
Learn five simple but effective techniques for preventing attackers from getting into your system. From patching, software vulnerabilities, and cryptography to Windows security, phishing, and more, each section in this course will have you learning the best practices for detecting and preventing vulnerabilities.

Simplifying JavaScript: A Handy Guide for Software Engineers

Start writing modern JavaScript from the ground up. This course highlights the constructs that matter most, teaching you not only how to use them but, more importantly, when to use them. Instantly power up your programming by focusing on the syntax that will have the biggest impact on your day-to-day work.

The Ultimate Guide to Kotlin Programming

Begin with the fundamentals: How is Kotlin different from Java? How do functions and collections work in Kotlin? Then get ready to tackle the advanced topics: lambdas, asynchronous programming, and more. Finally, pull it all together by building an Android application that talks to a backend service.
