After much hard labouring, our second special magazine dedicated to teaching programming is on sale now across the world. Unlike the previous "Code It!" special, "You Can Code!" is 100% dedicated to using Linux and other open source technologies to produce projects. To help Windows users make the jump, we've provided a copy of all the source code and pre-installed software development packages on the bundled DVD; Linux users can use that too (it's a VirtualBox disc image), but you may find it easier just to install the software on your favourite distro.
We received a great deal of feedback after the previous coding special, with a lot of people telling us how they would love to buy a Linux-specific programming magazine. At the time we were worried that the market would be too small to survive, but we're giving it a try with You Can Code! - if you were one of the people who wrote in, this is your big chance to prove this magazine has a chance. And if it's successful, we're much more likely to try it again.
As of this issue, our LXF special editions are being released every two months (as opposed to every three months). On the up side, that means more Linuxy goodness for you to get your mitts on. On the down side, it means you have less time to track down a copy before it goes off sale.
