Pragmatic Bookshelf

The Pragmatic Bookshelf publishing imprint is wholly owned by The Pragmatic Programmers, LLC.

Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas founded the company with a simple goal: to improve the lives of professional developers. We create timely, practical books, audio books and videos on classic and cutting-edge topics to help you learn and practice your craft, and accelerate your career.

We are not a giant, faceless, greed-soaked corporation. We're a small group of experienced professionals committed to helping make corporate software development easier.

Our titles do not contain any Digital Restrictions Management, and have always been DRM-free; we pioneered the 'beta book' concept. We're here to make your life easier.
