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.

Happy reading. Happy watching. Happy coding.
I want to answer this question from a beginner’s perspective. You’re reading this article because you’re a PHP developer with little knowledge and you want to make ‘coding as your forte’.
Closed or Open?
I’ve seen two sides of server side scripting. I had started learning PHP and MySQL much before I tried coding in C# and ASP.NET. I had not been developing with ASP.NET for long because I’d to leave it. Was it destiny? Actually I didn’t like the closed source. That was the real reason. Besides it was not my profession. I was not a professional PHP developer at the beginning. I was a data-journalist who wanted to be an Author and Ethical Hacker.
