Why I let readers download my books absolutely FREE
People may doubt whether my motives for letting readers download my books absolutely free are altruistic-you may doubt that behind this big-hearted decision I probably hanker for publicity.
You are always welcome whatever way you perceive me. Good, bad, or ugly.
The true motivation stems from one single principle-knowledge should be free and remain accessible to all. Besides that, I believe only true knowledge can save us from this ubiquitous and omnipresent poverty.
So through the Leanpub platform, you may either download my books absolutely free or you may pay any amount you wish. The choice is yours.
I am a full-time writer, so I write books to put bread on my table. If you have money, pay any amount you want to, it starts at 0.99 Dollar; however, if you have no money, don’t worry, download the books absolutely free. As long as Leanpub allows this, it’s fine. If they stop that, I will start it right from here.
Now, I plan every book in a way so that it relates to a series of video stream where I explain the concepts audiovisually.
I would request you to subscribe to my YouTube channel and share it with your friends for one single reason. It indirectly helps me going this way-my own “FREE” way.

php7 in 7 days
I presume you’re running php 5.x on an Ubuntu 14.04 machine. If you’re windows based, you can easily install Ubuntu 14.04 as a second operating system.
Remember, a genuine php programmer should know a little bit of Linux programming. It’s extremely easy and user friendly. Install Ubuntu on your system and open the terminal by pressing ‘control+alt+t’. For further association with Linux there are tons of free resources available over the internet.
You’ve opened up your terminal; now type this command on it.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
A Personal Package Archive, or PPA, is an Apt repository hosted on Launchpad. PPAs allow third-party developers so that they can build and distribute packages for Ubuntu outside of the official channels. They’re often useful sources of beta software – php 7 is also on the developmental stage and it’s not ready for the production environment.
