Basic Backer. Get the book as a DRM-free PDF and also in Kindle or ePub format, plus the source code. Note that ALL levels will get early access to the book as I go along and will have the opportunity to critique, cajole, influence, and improve the book.
Avid Reader Level. Get electronic copies of my previous books ("The Joy of PHP", "The Joy of jQuery" and "The Joy of Bootstrap") right away. Get the "Joy of Swift" as a PDF and also in Kindle or ePub format, plus the source code as soon as it's released.
Collector's Edition. All of the above, plus copies of the (black & white) paper versions of ALL FOUR of my books. (Or whatever you need to complete your collection.) You'll get the first books right away, and the Joy of Swift as soon as it's available. Autographed on request.
Get all of the eBooks, plus up to two hour-long sessions where you and I brainstorm about your Swift app via Skype or Facetime. We can talk code, marketing, features, whatever. Even how to pitch your idea via Kickstarter...
Contributing Author Level: Would you like to be listed as a contributing author to a book about Swift? At this level I will work with you to pick a topic and then you can write a chapter (edited by me) and your name and brief bio will be listed at the conclusion of your chapter. The ultimate resume enhancer! You'll also be listed as a contributing author for the book on Amazon, so anyone can easily verify your contribution. No, you don't get royalties, just fame :)
Silver Sponsor: Recognition on the project's website as a corporate sponsor. If you or your company is building a product that appeals to new Swift developers, this is a great way to get some visibility in front of this enthusiastic community.
Gold sponsor. This premium recognition will appear above the fold on the front page for at least one year. If you or your company is building a product that appeals to new Swift developers, this is a great way to get some visibility with an enthusiastic community.
If there are also silver sponsors, they will go on the bottom of the page.
Ping me. Let's talk about how we can both get the most out of this.
Early backer reward. Help me get the momentum going. The first group to back this project get this special price as my thanks-- as well as, of course, the DRM-free PDF version of the book, plus all the source code so you can follow along easily.
