      Where can you get a copy from?

    • Web Designer Pakistan

      Excellent Magazine…. Thanks for sharing with us

    • Mobile Review

      I’m agree with Adam how we get a copy of this??????????? Where and How?????

    • Mr. Bigglesworth

      OK. I’m sorry but it’s just too ironic that this issue gives tips like making your website lean (this page is over 1 MB), minimizing JS calls to 3rd party sites (this one calls Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Digg, Adestra), combining CSS files into one file (this page has over 14), etc.

      I love this magazine, and the tips in this issue are still valuable and relevant, but this site is another example of how academia clashes with the real world. All of those tips go right out the window to meet deadlines, cram as much on a page as possible to get more ad revenue and be more likeable/tweetable/plusable/shareable, and at the end of the day, try to make a buck.

      Is there a site where I can download the issue?

    • Youth of Pakistan

      Advance Thanks

      I have bought this issue of this magazine and I think its great. I’m trying to teach myself PHP and the tutorial is at the perfect level. Keep it up.

      In the back the magazine mentions a free resource disc. I didn’t get one with the magazine. Should I have? Perhaps I can download the contents, but I don’t see where.

      Help please?

      I also bought this issue and the free resource disc is missing. I really want to do some of the tuts in this issue – is there any way I can download the tutorial files
