Reading List: May 2012

Due to the Avengers hype and some travel, I didn't get as much reading down this month. But here's what I got through despite it all:

WordPress Meet Responsive Design by Michael Pick

If you're at all into WordPress development or web design at all, this is a great resource! This is the first in a series of eBooks to come from a new site called Code Poet, from the very team that brings you WordPress.com! In it they interview Chris Coyier, Ian Stewart, and Sara Cannon, all amazing resources on WordPress. They not only have great tips, but great insights on the theory of responsive design as well. Oh, and it includes a great resources section with more articles, podcasts and videos to add to your knowledge. It's free, so there really isn't a reason to check this book out!

Getting Pricing Right by Michael Pick

The second in the series, this is also another great resource for all the above reasons! This one covers how to charge, what to charge, what to put in invoices, and more importantly, the reasons why. If you ever do any freelance work and have no idea what your work is worth, this is another great (and FREE) resource.
