Get Two Years of Learnable and Help The Penguin Foundation

The SitePoint team loves innovative solutions to real-world problems. That's why we were so impressed by the Penguin Foundation's idea of using magnets to clean toxic oil from bird feathers — it's an elegant use of technology, replacing manual scrubbing with grease-cutting detergent, and it can save thousands of birds in the event of a tragic oil spill. We're not the only ones to be won over by this story: The project was a finalist in Google's Impact Challenge Australia. We're thrilled to partner with the Penguin Foundation to kick off our annual SitePoint Christmas Sale. We're offering an exclusive two-year membership to Learnable, our learning platform, for $144 — and we'll be making a donation to the Penguin Foundation that includes $75 for each two-year membership purchase. A two-year Learnable membership gives you access (and unlimited downloads!) to all SitePoint books and Learnable course, including Russ Weakley's CSS Troubleshooting, our brand-new edition of Darren Jones's JavaScript: Novice to Ninja, and our five-star-reviewed Introduction to JQuery, taught by Sachin Bhatnagar. We have already raised over $10,000 for the Penguin Foundation. If you'd like to help us take that even further, click here to buy your two-year Learnable membership!
