New Domain Name
As of today PVT is switching to www.pvtuts.com as its primary domain name. The previous domain name, www.programmingvideotutorials.com, will still continue to work as normal.
I’m in the process of remaking the video tutorials for the site. The new videos will feature higher resolution and better video/audio quality. If all goes well the first videos will be released in a few month’s time.
HOWB Audiobook Fundraiser
Siforia’s second crowdfunding campaign – the Handbook of Web Business: Audiobook Edition – is now live. The goal of this campaign is to finance an audio version of the Handbook of Web Business, by preselling this and many other products on the campaign page. Audiobooks are kind of expensive to produce, so the campaign needs to raise at least $2k for this product to be financed. Here’s a rendering of the CD version of the audiobook:
I’m grateful for every bit of support in getting the word out about this campaign. If this campaign exceeds its goal I will use every bit of surplus to fund more PVT videos.
HOS Audiobook Fundraiser
For the past few weeks we’ve been working on a crowdfunding project to finance an audiobook version of one of the Siforia books, the Handbook of Success: Audio Edition. This project has now been launched on Indiegogo. If this project succeeds we will use it as a stepping stone towards funding other exciting Siforia audio and video products, including remakes of all PVT videos and many new videos.
You can contribute to this project by purchasing rewards on the project page. These rewards feature many exclusive items and the retail items can be had here for a reduced price. If you cannot pledge money, please consider helping the project in other ways, such as sharing the campaign on Facebook or tweeting about it on Twitter.
Siforia now has a Merchandise Store for all your merchandising needs. It features the logo for WEJ as a symbol for the passive income lifestyle. So that people working towards a similar goal can look at that palm tree as they’re sipping their coffee or getting dressed in the morning, and feel the motivation flow into them. They may not be lying down below a palm tree on a warm sandy beach, but it’s pretty darn close.
Handbook of PHP Syntax
Siforia’s sixth book – The Handbook of PHP Syntax – is now available in print. This book features 30 information dense chapters, of which 14 are brand new chapters that are not available on PVT. Ebooks in the Kindle and ePub formats have also been released. Oh, and if you do like this book please leave a review.
