In celebration of the annual Day of the Programmer, Fanatical are giving away 4 books from Packt Press of interest to game developers. The Day of the Programmer as described by Fanatical:
Hello World. The job of a programmer is to bring electronics to life — without them you have no computers, consoles, phones, or pretty much any gadgets. They put their skills to the test to design, write, test and troubleshoot strenuous lengths of code in order to bring them to life.
And so on the 256th day of the year, the 13th of September (or on the 12th during a leap year), we pay tribute to them on The Day of the Programmer, also known as Programmers’ Day. 256 bytes is divisible by 8-bit bytes, you see?
While this day is celebrated on social media and online forums, you’d kind of expect them to do it because they rely on programmers to function. But if this annual event is new to you, we’ll take you through its origins and why the Day of the Programmer is important to many around the world.
So, what about those free books? They are the following titles:
- Fundamentals for Self-Taught Programmers
- Functional Programming in Go
- Mathematics for Game Programming and Computer Graphics
- Game Development with Blender and Godot
