Since it was first published in 2011, HTML5 and CSS3 For the Real World has been an important part of many developers’ libraries. Now you have the opportunity to collaborate with the authors and the Live Update team as we review, revise and create a brand new edition.
As a participant in Live Update you can review the drafts and create GitHub Issues for the Live Update team to explore. In appreciation for your collaboration, active participants will receive a mention in the book and will receive a free ebook when the completed book is published.
While there’s no guarantee that every one of your suggestions will be incorporated in the final product we do promise that they will be considered by the Live Update team.
So what’s keeping you? Check the schedule and participate in the Live Update now!
