You can even subscribe to the magazine in Stanze ebook reader for iPod/iPad by adding this address as a repo:


(from http://forums.pragprog.com/forums/134/topics/2905)

Edit: I just noticed that this address can be used in an RSS newsreader like a normal feed.

Thanks for that. I've been following them via RSS for a while now, but didn't even know that I could subscribe directly in stanza.

Slightly off-topic, but what other killer e-book/e-magazine (e-periodical?) content is out there for plugging into Stanza like this?

I've downloaded PDF versions of my bookshelf of tech/development books and piled them into GoodReader, and that became my iPad's killer app #1.

This Stanza feed thing looks like #2, if there's more stuff out there to plug into it.

For some reason and although I'm a regular customer of them, I never came across this magazine; so thanks for posting!

+1 - Same here - I guess they didn't use their customer email database to tell us about it. Kudos to them.

They usually do send out e-mails about it. Maybe there was a way to have opted out before they announced it.

The landing page link also shows that the editor is Michael Swaine. I believe he was one of the main contributors (editor?) of Byte magazine. Alas, I remember the monthly "Swaine's Flames" column (and others from Byte, as hinted at). I'll have to check out this e-zine. (I have several of the PP's books, usually pretty good)

He was an editor at Dr. Dobbs. See also http://pip.pragprog.com/podcasts/show/31

Doh! So I do. Thanks.

You mean Dr Dobb's Journal, not Byte.

Wow, this is fantastic. Issue 8 caught my eye because of 'Better CSS with Sass' and I found a section titled 'Working Geek' about how to give good tech presentations, when I am currently preparing one on RIA Services for work! Couldn't be happier.

Cant see the issues in mobile safari,it throws a 'Bad address, cant open' error.

It redirects to the free Stanza ebook reader, I think that's why.

Nice. I've only read one article for far: http://pragprog.com/magazines/2009-08/writing-an-iphone-app and it was excellent.

I had no idea they were even doing this. Thanks.

Good Content - and free!
